Happy Valentine’s Day everyone. I just had to take a photo of my cookies and had a cup of tea in my Grandma’s tea cup. I haven’t used it in a long long time, but it was just the thing to do today. It was quite strange to have such a tiny cup of tea after using such large coffee cups all the time.
And today arrived a new special addition to our house. Since we have moved in this wall was designated as the ‘piano’ wall. A very good friend of mine had decided to get rid of her piano. And only a few days earlier I saw it at her house and thought how much I would love to play it. But, I didn’t. Then, I found out they were no longer going to keep it. Hubby and I went back and forth on the piano but as you can see the piano won out. I would include a photo of J and I playing our first duet together, but I have to draw the line at photos of me in my pj’s. Instead you get to see how beautifully it fills up the wall. It is also the perfect colour and the sound just carried through our house so beautifully.
I am a little rough in my playing, but it won’t be long before I get my groove back. I am lovin’ the internet tonight as I don’t have any of my old piano books, but all my favourite songs can be found online. I can’t wait until the sound carries outside and the neighbors stop to listen. At least I hope they stop to listen, that is what used to happen when my Mom would play when we were younger. There are lots of pianos out there, but you rarely hear them being played, I sure hope that never happens here. And yes, again, Hubby wins out at being able to pick up and play as though he has played all his life. He has never taken lessons. Phoey.
Happy Valentine’s Everyone
