We had a quiet weekend around home. It was one of those weekends when you just enjoy not having to go anywhere. We did venture out at the very beginning of the weekend though. We went to do some shopping on Friday night at about 9pm and it was great…no crowds! (smile) We decided that we would take advantage of the calmer atmosphere of night shopping. I used to do this all the time when I was back in Georgia and Brit Boy has become a fan of it too. It doesn’t get dark around here in the summer until well after 10pm, so it’s really fun to be out.
We picked up a few groceries and some things we needed and then we just had fun taking a look around. Brit Boy and I love to play, so we had a great time. We check out the music, books, and toys and have a ball. (smile) So we went down this aisle with a bit of everything, including inexpensive musical instruments. The guitars were tempting, but we didn’t buy one. LOL. We are secret pop stars inside I think. LOL. Anyway, my eyes did land upon something that we bought and took home with us. It’s this…
See, I used to play the flute when I was a kid and I was pretty good at it. I’ve got ribbons somewhere to prove it. (smile) But I can put the ribbons way to the side when I just think about how much I loved playing music and recently I’ve just really missed that after all these years. I don’t have my flute anymore, but one day I’ll get myself another one. So until then, I’ll be playing my recorder, a cousin to my flute. (smile) The fingering of the notes is similar, but a few are different so it’s good for my grown up brain to have to learn a new skill. I’m really enjoying it. I like giving Brit Boy impromptu concerts already, complete with a bit of choreography. LOL. Maybe I should’ve been a performer somewhere, whether I was any good or not…just to keep that gene occupied. LOL.
So it’s music time around the yellow house…a chance to just have fun for the sake of having fun. I think we’ll get Brit Boy some drums so he can play back up and we can jam! (wink)
