It's quite muggy and icky feeling, outside here today. I did some practicing this morning before it started to get feeling gross, but when I went to go back to practice more it was just too hot and sticky to do more then a few minutes. *sigh* maybe this evening when it cools off I'll be able to get some more practicing done.

It's supposed to start cooling off now, which I'm pleased about. I love the cold weather of the winters here, it could be colder, but I am quite content! The colors of fall will soon be a nice change, and reprive from this hot summer. It's supposed to cloud over and rain today, which would be nice! We haven't had much rain in quite some time.

Practicing this past week has gone pretty good overall. It's nice to be getting back into gear after those few days of last week. I needed the break and I feel much more refreshed now when coming back to my repertoire and technique. I've got some new technical study books to try my hands at, which is proving to be fun and a challenge! My brother, a guitar virtuoso, is also challenging me as we are having some friendly competition on learning Dont 2. Based upon what he's done with it in the past couple days, compared to me...I'd say he's going to win, but it never hurts for me to try! I practiced some viola yesterday too, which I hadn't done in awhile. Got my head around some more of the Schubert Sonata and eyed the Bach debating as to whether I should pick it up or leave it for later, I picked the latter, and never did get around to picking it up, but maybe today or tomorrow....

Nothing too exciting happening!I just keep plugging away!
