Well guys…just a post for today.  I will  have pics tomorrow, but I just wanted to let you know what I have been up to.  I have been busy with the final loose ends of the Kitchen Sink Stamps project as well as thinking of new ways to wow you with ways to use things you already have.  I also had a really nice Thanksgiving with John’s parents and his grandmother (who is 104!!!) last night.  The girls loved all of the great food and fun.  I have a gig singing tonight as well as a pianist coming over today.  She is a friend of mine and her husband plays trombone in the Philadelphia Orchestra.  I wanted to hire a pianist once a week this season to just get some stuff worked out, so I can focus just on singing rather than having to play for myself,, which is sometimes a detriment in advanced practicing.  So, I need to work through my arias in the Bach Magnificat and start running through and really learning the Pergolesi Stabat Mater and Rossini’s Petite Messe Solenelle.  I am doing the Bach Dec. 2nd.  I have never hired a pianist to work things through with me before, ever, but I am going to treat myself to it this year.  We also have a great time together personally, so I think we can get to making some good music together!  John, my dear scrubby, is out on this mad day of shopping, buying us a new printer.  Can you believe I have been without a printer for months.  It is really starting to get on my nerves and I think he is taking the brunt of my frustrations!  I am also excited because I am working hard to fill a really big order of 5 different kinds of boxes and four tins with hersheys with matching note cards and pens.  In that order I am also making 3 cards.  As well as that, my Etsy posting sold, so I need to get hopping to make more things to post there!  YAY!   I just wanted to start slow, but I get how to do it now, so I have to get cooking!    Speaking of cooking, while I tidy up the House today I am going to make the best turkey soup!!!  OH YEAH!  I got the carcass from dinner last night!  Love it!  And yes, I really DID have pumpkin pie and coffee for breakfast today!!  BBBWWWAAAA!!!  I hope to post some pics tonight or early tomorrow morning!  Have a great day!
