Well, it’s a quiet Sunday today; I’m lying here on the couch responding to comments and watching Monsters Inc with my little brother Nathan and trying not to sweat like a pig. It is so so so hot, we have all the fans on full blast.
I finally got Song of Sienna memorized after what feels like a month of never ending practice on the piano. A teeny more practice and I should be able to play it with my eyes closed. The next song I’m going to start working on will be Field of Daisies, which is soooo pretty. I’ve also began giving Nathan beginner piano lessons the past few weeks. And Kayla wants to learn how to read music so I’ll probably start teaching her too. Hey, who knows, maybe I’ll be a piano teacher one day.
Since the scare of finding three cockroaches in my bathroom and with summer bringing the scorpions back, I suddenly disliked having my mattress on my bedroom floor, with all my blankets touching the ground. Anything could climb between the sheets or under my pillow. Y’know, I’m fine with hunting and killing scorpions, I have at least two years experience doing that. But I did not like the idea of being asleep and having creepy things climbing into my bed. So, mom got my a bed a frame that stands 13 inches off the ground! And we put it together ourselves. I’m feeling safe now… well, unless a scorpion is crossing the ceiling and falls off. We have seen at least six scorpions on our ceilings before. But anyway, I can now say I’m sleeping much better now!
This week I got a new swimsuit and all I need is a pair of shorts and I’ll start having water fights with Nathan in our front yard! It’ll be a great way to keep cool, especially without a pool this year.
I’m feeling a little cooler now then I did at the beginning of this post. I hope I stay cool for the rest of the day!And I hope the critters stay out of my room and stay outside where I can find them and kill them. 😀 I think I’ll go teach Kayla some piano now. 🙂
