not just anything gets me out of bed...
...at least not this early. So moving this is what dragged me into the land of the living at an ungodly hour...



We bought this at an estate sale last weekend for super-cheap, and I'm thrilled. Twelve years of lessons growing up and strangely enough, I still enjoy playing. But I'm realizing that, after years of having nothing to practice on, I'm miles out of practice on basic techniques. For now, there's a bit of novelty in even being able to practice all those scales and exercizes, so I'll have to take advantage of it while things are still fresh. I bought an exercize book at a used bookstore in Asheville this weekend that promises to get me up to virtuoso status with just 60 exercizes. So a couple hundred times through the book and I'll be ready for Carnegie Hall! Woohoo!

But the piano looks great and sounds great and I only have to do a minor amount of rearranging furniture. So to anyone with interesting sheet music lying around, I am now taking donations...
