Girly Dresses

I tried on this dress.  I did not buy it.  After asking a few people how it looks on me, I decided to get it.  However, by the time I got back to the store, the dress in my size is gone!  Oh well, chalk it up to-- this dress was not meant for me.

Have you ever had that happen to you? I should have bought it...but it was sort of fluffy around the bottom, and I wasn't sure it was age-appropriate.  Also, it feels like such as Easter dress. Oh, well. Bygones.

Patricia Matthews For Mother's Day Gift

My mother found an old book by Patricia Matthews Love's Avenging Heart.  She loves it so much, but the print are really tiny.  So, I found 7 more Patricia Matthews in Kindle store.  I think I just got my mother a most perfect gift.  Kindle books of the author that she enjoys reading.

That was almost easy.

Fort Worth

Court House of Ft. Worth
My daughter and I had a lot of fun walking around downtown Ft. Worth.  We especially like this court house building.  Too bad it was Sunday when we were there and we could not go inside.  Outside the building was very impressive. We sat around on the from steeps and took pictures of the view.

When you sit on the steps of the court house above, this is what you will see. It's a nice view during sunset.

Piano Hinges

We just had our piano tuned. What difference it made. Now, my often out of timing playing sounded so much better. I seem to have an aversion with counting beats. It is probably one of the many reasons I am not a professional piano player. I also cannot listen to a tune and play it on the piano. I need music sheets. In fact, I put a lot of music sheets on my piano when I am on it. I tend to jump around while finding something that suits me at the moment. It means that I need a stainless steel piano hinge so it would hold from a single sheet to a heavy volume of etudes. My children takes piano and violin lessons. My oldest daughter almost always exclusively plays violin only.  She's 15, and a concert master at her orchestra.  Their orchestra always placed in the competition.  I am very proud of her.

My Dream Piano

I love playing the piano. I wish I was better at it.  However, I did not want to put time to make me better, so I had better be satisfied with my playing.  My children are a different matter. They are so good at it.  We went looking for a new piano and found this yamaha piano at guitar center.  It is so beautiful!  I think I would need a bigger house for this one.  Right now, It would crowd my living room.  But, in about 4 years, I will buy one.  I might even have more time to get an instructor to help me play better.  My children plays the harmonica , bass and another on violin. We could give mini-concerts over the holidays for family gathering.  That would be fun.
