What a soggy New Year

January 3, 2006 at 4:29 AM

The New Year came and went without having electricity or heat and being trapped in the canyon. Finally got the electricity back just a few moments ago. To pass the time, I tried practicing, but it was a challenge with no lights, however I did discover to my amazement that I had memorized quite a few pieces of music over the past year. The longest was 6 pages… So, that is one accomplishment for 2005!

So, for 2006?
1 - memorize another piece so I can practice when the power is out
2 - shovel out the mudslide behind my house
3 - help my neighbor shovel out his mudslide
4 - buy a generator
5 - cook dinner from scratch rather than frozen dinners more often
6 - dust of cello and play it at least once a month
7 - exercise past the first month on the new year
