A little of this and that

Just stopping in for a minute to say, Hi! :)
I have been busy, busy, busy..but that should calm down soon.

Last night I went with my brother to music night and actually took my dulcimer.
They were practicing Christmas music since they have a few places they will be playing during the coming season. Notice I said they and not we. :)
I sat off to the side and played along as quietly as possible. No, I am still not ready for a solo performance...maybe one day. My brother had to twist my arm to get me to bring my baby...but it ended up being good.
No one could really hear me..... so I could have been playing On Top Of Old Smokey while they were playing The Little Drummer Boy....they would have never known :)
It was good practice.

Then today I went to my last class for the Guardian Ad Litem program.
We did some role playing and when it was my turn it got really warm in the room all of a sudden.
I knew the material but boy did my face get red. I am sure they probably thought my head was going to explode....but no one called 911.
That is all done with and tomorrow morning I get sworn in by the judge.
And if I read the director right.... I think she already has a case planned for me. :0
We shall see....we all have a lot to learn.
The cool thing is that anywhere I go I can take my certification with me.

I had to leave class a little early to run over to Julia's audition with a group named
Voices in the Laurel.
The woman who started this choir is also the music teacher for Julia's school. About a week ago the school had a program and to my surprise they gave Julia a solo part.
Come to find out Julia has a very mature voice for her age......surprise, surprise.
The music teacher asked me if Julia could come and audition and that took place tonight. She did great and will start with the group in January since they have already been practicing Christmas music for awhile now. She will be taught to read music....that in itself impressed me.
They have traveled to Australia, opened for Dolly Parton, and have sung with a few others that to my embarrassment I did not know. I just smiled and said, Wow, that sounds great.
Julia was excited she made it and a little more secure since there were a few children she knew.... so all was good.

Please keep praying for Keith as he is looking still for a job.
He has had a couple of good leads, turned in a lot of apps and is waiting to hear back from two he applied for that were very interested in him. Anyone who gets him will be blessed.
I did some real freaking last week......and then God brought me back around again.........maybe someone out there has been praying for me? ;)
Thank you!
That is it for now.
Talk to ya after I see the judge. ;)

Good stuff! How exciting for Julia. I think it is great you can play a dulcimer! Praying Keith gets the BEST job!

If you don't mind me asking what kind of work is your husband looking for? Pretty cool about your dulcimer playing and your daughter's ?? singing. When I freak, I stop and tell myself that no matter what the next second brings He is going to be with me/us. Don't really have any idea what all you have been through.

My husband is flying cross country tonight so I will stay up until he calls to tell me he arrived safely and we can say good night. So while I'm up I will have some good quiet time--will include your family as I chat with God.

Wow, that is so awesome about Julia. I am so proud of her. I am also proud of you, seems you are really spreading those wings of yours sis. My prayers continue for Keiths job search. I love you.

Denise said...
