We are having yet another snow day today...no school and no snow on the roads at the moment but they are forecasting 2-4 inches for this afternoon and into the evening and overnight.
We live in town but our town is totally surrounded by hills and those roads can get pretty nasty when the weather changes and downright quick.
Quick enough that they don't want to chance having to bus kids home on the hills after the roads have gotten ice and snow covered. So we are having another free day of play in our household. The kids are playing (and arguing with each other as I type this) and I am practicing my dulcimer.
**Note to myself: Kids must be bored if they are fighting. Will have to find a few chores for them to entertain themselves with. ** :0)
Anyways, my parents got me this for Christmas a couple of years ago and I quickly became frustrated with it. But over the weekend I got it back out, tuned it and began plucking and strumming again.
My kids informed me that I am horrible at it, but I see improvement. I can now play London Bridge and Mary Had a Little Lamb.
Hey, it's a start, and a better one than my past try.
I'm reading through my book.
And watching a few YouTube videos. Now I just need to learn more, read more and practice, practice, practice.
As I tell my kids, you gotta start somewhere and practice makes perfect!
