First Friday of 08

Yesterday I felt out of sorts.  Not exactly sure why — post holiday letdown, the back to work blues, SAD — could be any number of things.  I went home after work and started dinner.  I fixed a nice salad with spinach and red leaf lettuce, carrots, red pepper, green onion and pine nuts.  I put a piece of cheesy ciabatta in the oven and then fixed some cheese tortellini with sage butter sauce.  Divided a can of mandarin orange pieces between two bowls.  Sat down to a nice dinner with the fashionista.

After I cleaned up the kitchen, I decided to work on some knitting and watch a bit of television.  Watched some of the Orange Bowl since KU was playing — tried to watch a movie, but nothing was appealing.  Felt out of sorts with my knitting.  I finally gave up and went to bed.

This evening I am meeting a good friend at Starbuck’s.  One of our other friends is going back to school this month to finish her degree, so we are putting together a fun bag of school supplies for her.  I have a pair of shoes to exchange and two frames and mats to return that just didn’t work.  I need to get my car in — one of my wheels seems to be out of alignment.  I have a lesson Saturday afternoon and then praise team practice in the evening.  And I need to take down all the Christmas decorations this weekend.

I want to focus on music this year and improving my skills, so I found a teacher and am taking some lessons.  And along with that, I want to learn to play acoustic guitar better, and so do several of my friends, so we are going to take a group lesson twice a month from a young man at our church.  Should be fun.  But practicing two instruments will certainly take a lot of my time.  Hopefully my motivation will not flag —
