Hello My Dear Darling Friends!
How is your week going? This has been a good week for me. I have been spending lots of time in the garden and am enjoying my new guitar. Yesterday my fingers were super sore. In another lifetime, I was a violinist and I decided to take classical guitar lessons for a few months in middle school. Back then, I was spoiled because I had already built up substantial calluses on my fingertips and the nylon guitar strings were much softer than my violin strings. It has been probably about 14 plus years since I have seriously played the violin and my fingers were so sore, but it also felt good knowing that I am taking on a new challenge. This is really stimulating the creative side of me that has been starving in recent years.
My life has been so busy with school, work, and moves that I haven’t had much time to invest in creative hobbies and endeavors other than blogging and working out. I am enjoying this change of pace!
