School is out for the summer! I have never been this happy to be done with a semester.;) I'm ready to have time to work on other projects, like planning a wedding and learning how to play the cello!
I actually haven't truly started in on all the projects I need to do though, since we have been working on the new store. Its amazing how clean a place can feel once you put some paint on the wall. I love old buildings, but sometimes, the task of making them into something presentable can be a bit daunting. There is something satisfying about taking the impossible and turning it into a thing of beauty.
I had another cello lesson yesterday. I can now (kind of, with the help of pencil markings) play "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star"! Next piece to conquer, Canon in D.;) Why? Because the cello part is made for beginners like me!

I received a cello from my fiance this year for a birthday present, something I have always wanted.:) Andrew tried to talk me into wanting to play the bass, and almost had me convinced that it would be just the thing for me. He did that partly so I wouldn't suspect what he had found for my birthday present.;) I love it, though I will mention that it has been quite an experience to have to start at the beginning on another instrument.:D I have to remind myself that it will be a lot more fun once I have learned the fundamentals and can actually play something familiar on it.:D
My brother married on Saturday.:) I would say there was a flurry of birdseed and confetti, by that would just describe what their car was like when they went to leave.;) The only thing is, Luke surprised Mandi by leaving in Corvette instead of his SUV.;) Unfortunately, their SUV will be waiting for them (in all its glory) when they return from the honeymoon.
