First, the recital for my music students went well...all performed wonderfully. A nice finish to the school year! I usually don't teach lessons through the summer. Everybody gets a break...and all are busy with their summer activities. Starting up in the fall is always something we can look forward to,...and we'll be ready!
Next, over the Memorial Day weekend, I made a dash to Denver to visit family. The weather was very warm...yep, it felt like summer! I took my camera with me...thinking I would snap numerous photos. But I did not take a single picture!! What's with that?? I just couldn't be bothered! Really??? Sorry...can't explain it.
But, when I got home, I was ready to snap some photos. (I'm rolling my eyes at myself, here.)
Anyway, Cory found a wonderful cup that looks a bit like the calico cat I miss so much. She gave it to me on this trip, and I love it.
Also, she gifted me with some very tasty shortbread cookies from her trip to London. Fantastic!! I was fortunate enough to get a quick look at the pictures from her trip, too.
On Sunday we attended an Art Fair downtown; the varied artworks were amazing! At one booth I found a framed print of a batik painting that I just had to purchase! I met the artist, had an interesting visit about her work, and she personalized the back of the painting for me. Very cool.

It will be hung above the piano...as soon as I can get to it. Trying to get back in the loop...
