The sales associate at Lakeshore Music said my classical guitar (as opposed to acoustic which is more for strumming chords rather than playing notes) is fine to play. He replaced my two broken strings but said all the strings really needed replacing. I bought a chord book complete with a DVD to help me play. But the guitar sounds flat! No matter how much I tune it. I’ll have to take it to my friend Angela McKay. Maybe with all new strings and a more professional tuning I’ll be set to go.
I also saw that at Spencer’s Landing the skating rink is operational despite the warm weather we’ve been having. I quickly foraged for skates in my dungeon and set them in the front hall: tomorrow’s fun challenge.
To take the time to do things I enjoy or at least remember to enjoy the things I’m doing!
Tomorrow I’m having a manicure and pedicure, the gift certificate for which was given to me in September. Wow, it takes me that long to get around to using it. I also have a massage gift certificate, but I’m making the appointment right away this time.
Tomorrow I also hope to take my guitar (that I bought with money from my first summer job babysitting back when I was sixteen) and replace the broken string. It’s been quite a few years since I last played. If that works out, and the guitar’s not warped or anything, I hope to visit my friendly musician Angela McKay for a lesson
or two. I want to be able to accompany myself singing the lullaby I wrote for Kyle in Beauty Returns.
