Friday night I had my dear friend and mentor come over for a quick visit that ended up with us completely losing track of time and chatting til past 11pm that evening! Nick was out playing some games with a group of guys so it worked out perfectly.
Saturday morning I had to drag my butt out of bed to go to a bank appointment and pick up a credit card. Nick came with me and we bought Timmy’s together which was a treat. That afternoon I headed downtown for a friend’s baby shower, which I posted HERE if anyone is interested. I also took some photos for my dear friend, Tara’s, blog. She hasn’t posted them yet or else I would link up :). Tara is responsible for all of the beautiful decorating at the shower as well as the cute little chalkboard labels throughout her house as pictured below:
Sunday Nick and I attempted some baking. While it tasted great, it didn’t stay as pretty as it looks in the photo below. I think we’ll grease the pan a little better next time around 😉
Monday it snowed. I mean REALLY snowed. Downtown it didn’t really stick, as you can see below. But let me tell you – I was scared out of my mind driving in it up the mountain where we live later that night. Going to my students’ house, I eventually just threw the car in park, slid it back into a snowbank, put the emergency brake on, and announced to all the onlookers that I’d be back to deal with it in an hour. I was running late and had three more back-to-back lessons to go at that point. (I should also add that the whole ordeal was a lot more scary and aggravating that that cavalier sentence made it sound). On my way home, my anti-lock breaks decided to kick in on the way back down the mountain, and my tires didn’t grip the road again until almost the bottom of the one hill section. Which was perfect being that there was a blind stop sign at that point!
And I’ll leave it at that as I have a piano student arriving in less than 20 minutes and should “get off the computer” now (which is really code for waste 10 more minutes of Facebook).
