Late afternoon/after-lesson cup of new Ceylon tea. Nice!

Thanks. He did a very nice job! I asked for scales and theory, and we worked on scales and theory! Gotta like a teacher who teaches what you ask for. I told him to present it in any manner he felt appropriate, so he started off with a C major scale in the first two positions on the fretboard. As it happens, I was already 'familiar' with those, but facile with them, so I kept my mouth shut and will practice those until I am! Next week we'll continue with the next three positions on the fretboard, which I have absolutely no idea about. Exactly what I want to learn! Yippee. Now... if I could only understand him when he speaks... Manchester lad with an accent so broad you can cut it with a spoon!

I think every muscle in my body is aching, after working in the yard. I always hate the after winter/spring cleanup (weeds and dead leaves, cleaning pots, scrubbing chairs, and replanting/seeding plants), but the reward is the enjoyable, free-time just sitting on the patio reading, once it is all done. I only have one major job left once summer arrives; cleaning out the pond.

Peet's anniversary blend coffee in my cup and a chocolate-covered strawberry on my plate.

I spent Saturday helping a buddy move... so I feel your pain, literally.

Ah, this is the part of a book I HATE! You submit everything, and you think "I'm done" and celebrate. No, then you have Author Review. Fine, all Author Review DONE, time to relax! No again, now it's Pages. ARRGH! I was going to goof off and read today. So instead, I get to proofread. Not at all the same.

Hmmm. This probably should have been over in the V&R thread, but too bad. I'll save it by commenting that I'm having no coffee at all today, but am enjoying a big mug of Lion Mountain Keemun.

♫ This land is mine; God gave this land to me
This brave and ancient land to me
And when the morning sun reveals her hills and plain
Then I see a land where children can run free

So take my hand and walk this land with me
And walk this lovely land with me
Though I am just a man, when you are by my side
With the help of God, I know I can be strong

Though I am just a man, when you are by my side
With the help of God, I know I can be strong

To make this land our home
If I must fight, I'll fight to make this land our own
Until I die, this land is mine. ♫

Yom Ha'atzmaut! Happy Independence Day! 66 years and counting!

Good morning, everyone! Another Tuesday, just like any other, except... you... are... there! (Anyone else remember that program?) And a wonderful Tuesday it is. God gave us yesterday's earthquake to remind us that being alive is ALL that matters. Everything else is just the trimmings. So to celebrate, I'm drinking East India Company's "Assam" tea, and getting ready to visit the Food and the Fruit Ladies. Ooops! I just remembered... I still have some mangoes left from yesterday! Wow! Yippee!

Stitchawl, it sounds like you may have found a guitar teacher to your liking (once your get the hang of understanding his accent). I'm happy to hear your experience with the earthquake wasn't too bad.

VydorScope - What a good friend you are to help him move. I'm still moving slow, as my muscles get over their aches.

Fresh coffee in my cup and a couple of chocolate-covered strawberries on my plate.

Late night mango lassi... sort of. I had a bunch of mangoes starting to go bad, so I mixed up some milk, yogurt and mango in the blender, over ice.

Close enough.

Peet's Major Dickason's coffee, with my Anniversary Breakfast Blend tea cooling off slowly to get to a temperature one can drink it.

♫ Doe, a deer, a female deer
Ray, a drop of golden sun
Me, a name I call myself
Far, a long, long way to run
Sew, a needle pulling thread
La, a note to follow Sew
Tea, a drink with jam and bread
That will bring us back to Do (oh-oh-oh) ♫

I'm learnin'....

Good morning, all. A bright and beautiful morning here, with no buildings shaking. That's a good feeling...er... or not feeling! There's a large mug of Viang Joom On's "English Breakfast" tea sitting beside a plate of hummus, babaganous, and Kalamata Olive tepenade, all with my name on it! All is well in my world. Thanks, God!
