The days are flying by like leaves off the trees...

Goodness - where did October go?!

If you know me at all, you know I love pretty much everything about fall, and this year has been no exception...except it's just gone by so quickly!

Highlights from October include:

  • 4 weddings (yes, four)
  • state piano festival (my students who participated did a great job!)
  • lots of hours put in at Arts Inc....and many more duties to add to my list there (including but not limited to graphic designer, marketing coordinator, and BOD meeting hostess/secretary)
  • QT spent with old and new(!) friends

We had our recital for the studio last weekend.  Yes, it was much earlier in the semester than usual...and yes, that means I won't be hearing "Jingle Bells" 527 times a week between now and Christmas.  ☺  I was so very proud of all my students' performances!  I asked one of them (a 5-yr.old) if he was proud of himself.  When he replied with a "no," I feigned shock and asked why.  He replied, "I played so YOU could be proud!"

Funny moment in lessons a couple weeks ago:
6-yr.-old student: Hey - this one has a dudette!
Me: Yeah - let's play the duet!
Student: Oh - hahaha - I thought it was called a dudette - hahaha!
He only got a little red in the face when he realized his mistake.

That's all, for now.  I hope you all have a lovely weekend!  I'm pretty excited for what mine has in store... ; )
