This is my day...

I have the morning off college for 'study leave' - more like sleep/internet/piano leave. biggrin.gif

An exam I'm well prepared for in the afternoon, which shouldn't be too bad.

Sit around for a bit at college till the end of the day, then go to recorder lesson.

Having not had any lessons, I won't have any hwk over the weekend = lots of music time biggrin.gif

Yeah, well anyway, I'm quite happy today biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

Getting up early for the adult pupils. Early enough not to be in the usual flap, and able to eat a proper breakfast (instead of cereal bars scoffed while trying to tidy the teaching room) smile.gif

Musical activities seem to put people in a good mood, judging from everyone's posts tongue.gif

For me it was a call (albeit a short one about nothing that really mattered) from someone I cared about. Really cheered me up and I needed that.

Well, in my case, it not so much the musical activites themselves as the being able to practice, or just play around, whenever I feel like it, however I feel like it. This is quite a novelty to me, so I'm getting a real kick out of it. :-)

Wednesday eve, I played a bunch of stuff to my mom over the phone. And then there's been all the practicing in PJs, playing in the middle of the night, doing odd 10 minutes here and there through the day - sure, I love playing, but doing these things reminds me that I can now play whenever I want to and that makes me /very/ happy.

I guess what's making me happy is having the freedom to integrate practice into the rest of my life instead of it being a logistical nightmare.

Then its probably the lack of them today that is making me grumpy. Sorry body won't let me sing today and I want to. Singing makes me happy. I felt happier when some really gentle pilates stretches started to get thing moving, and I managed some gentle humming, but I know when not to push things.

I'm happy - I've done lots of work this week after a long block.

I'm not happy because I've not had time to practice for two days now and I'm way too tired tonight .... zzzzzzzzz

Doing all the manual major scales & arpeggios, chromatics, contrary motions, dims and doms, then stopping to eat pizza, then doing all the minor stuff and pedal stuff, then stopping for pudding, then doing pieces. :-)
The novelty of being able to practice at home instead of 20 miles away isn't going to wear off any time soon...
