Oh, it's a jolly holiday ...


A lovely find at the op shop this morning



Sheet music AND a story.


They don't make them like this anymore.





It takes you back, doesn't it?


The arrangements are perfect,

lovely to play,

and I'm always interested to see 

how other piano teachers

make notes on students' pieces.

(My markings tend to be more minimalist than these)

Also, two saxophone books for Emily;

a book on Good King Wenceslas

which I will show my recorder class,

(we just started to play Good King Wenceslas 

last week, a bit early for Christmas carols 

but they are so advanced this year);

and a wedding ideas book 

with great craft and party ideas,

which I'm looking forward to reading.

And all for $5.00.

Today has been a warm day.

The car thermometer has hit 30degC

a few times while I've been out.

Can it really still be winter?

* * *

I've thoroughly enjoyed the serenity

of the last few days

and am looking forward to seeing my girl again

very soon.

What a wonderful book! That was indeed a fun find. We still all love Mary Poppins!
Hope you're enjoying winter while anticipating spring; we're now hopefully looking for cooler, cooler days.
My girls and I went to a Jane Austen event at a local plantation home today. It was lovely! Just a hint of coming coolness in the light. :)
Blessings!
