I was substituting on the organ last Sunday. I was given 3 songs that were not particularly easy so I was already feeling a bit nervous, but my fingers were on the keys ready to start in when they announced a different hymn . . . one I had NEVER HEARD OF!! I waited for the music conductor to pipe in that they had made a mistake and had announced the wrong song, but he didn't. He just stood there waiting for me to start and I was then creating a very awkward pause. I turned to the new hymn, and not only had I never heard of it, I was suddenly very unsure about my sight-reading skills. I don't like to test my skills on the job like that.
I got bit by a dog this week. I don't think I've ever been bit by a dog before, so I guess I can check that off my bucket list.
Melanie, Suzanne and I went hiking at the Cave Creek Regional Park, 6 miles or so. Fun day. Suzanne took some great photos. You can see them here .
Melanie is on spring break this week. I have been reading blogs about great road trips, adventures, projects etc that wonderful moms around the country are enjoying with their kids during spring break. Melanie's spring break consists mostly of chores. I took her out to lunch today to ease my guilt.
Dave and I have been hanging sheetrock in the attic. The project from last year that I thought would never end? I was right, it's never going to end!
I thought of some great April Fools Day pranks, but executed none of them. But all my ideas are saved in a secret file on the computer so I am ready for next year.
I offered the following unhealthy items for breakfast at seminary this morning - waffles, butter, peanut butter, maple syrup, boysenberry syrup, powdered sugar, whip cream, chocolate chips, butter, honey, sprinkles and a cherry on top. (if it means anything, i also had some healthier options - bananas, strawberries, eggs, milk)
I talked to a friend who is planning to paint her oldish piano and make a stunning artistic piece. We brainstormed some fantastic ideas. She is very creative. I'm anxious to see how this project unfolds.
I stopped in at the Wide World of Maps. We might be (maybe? possibly? hopefully?) planning a big trip for our 25th anniversary this year!
Well, that was my week.
