Wow!! It seems I have to blog more often to keep ahead of the surprising / stunning news.
First things first; I’m still giddy about the piano. It was tuned on Friday, and I definitely play it several hours just about every day. My friends have joked that now my family will have to do their own laundry, cook their own meals and basically fend for themselves since no one will be able to pry me away from the piano. Well, the kids are doing their own laundry now (that’s another story on the riverbank), but I’m still pretty much the chief cook and bottle-washer.
I would love to not be. One of my favorite things in life is sharing the kitchen with other people. I love that “kitchen dance” that happens when 3 or 4 people are all working together to prepare a meal. But that doesn’t happen too frequently in my kitchen. My children cook on occasion; Tim never. We’ve been married 24 years and adding milk and sugar to my tea is a newly acquired skill for Tim.
