Also, it WAS Thanksgiving yesterday. I had a nice time playing games with the family (such as charades - it was fun when my sister got music-related words and mimed playing on the piano and composing for Mozart. I've been sick, though, so it has actually been about a week now since I've held my violin. I'm very excited to get to play it again, as I'm finally feeling better - I think I'll practice later this afternoon or evening after we put up the Christmas tree! It's that time of year, as well as Prism next week - my last time playing Anderson's "A Christmas Festival", although I am playing the first violin part for the first time. It'll be a busy few weeks leading up to Christmas Eve (and the final Hobbit film with Howard Shore's final Middle-Earth score, played by the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra!), but I'll just have to push through and keep being musical.
And after the New Year is my senior concerto audition. Yikes!
