Okay, so here we are. It’s 2012, I’ve done so much since the last post, yet haven’t written about ANYTHING!!!
So here’s a short summary: Ham Tortellini has been a favorite around our house lately. I’ve made it at least 3 times since I last wrote. It’s so delicious! As far as the New Years party goes… this year was definetly the best! Some friends from church live next door now, so we had a two house party with them, & had lots of people over. So, we pretty much had two parties going on! It was pretty cool. I did prepare food for it! I made the famous Buffalo Chicken dip, peanut butter swirl brownies, & chocolate chip muffins! So, the guests were very much satisfied. 😉
So, since that’s taken care of, now it’s time to say what’s going on in the present! 🙂
There’s pretty much one word. Music. Yeah… violin, violin, & MORE violin! Tonight was actually the Young Artists Showcase with my violin studio. What we did was for the past few months, we’ve prepared music for a warm-up concert for the Virginia Symphony at the Ferguson Center [hope you got all that!(;]. So I’ve been practicing, going to many rehearsals, & working hard to get all the music ready. It was very advanced. More advanced than before. But, all us kids got it together, & put on a veryyyy good show tonight! & even better… I got a free ticket to see the Virginia Symphony play! Score!
Also in the topic of music… it’s that time of year again. ODACS! [Old Dominion Association of Christian Schools, for those who don’t know] Yep! Except this year, I’m not working on a trio, or duet. I’m going all out with a solo this year! I’ve been working very hard on a concerto for Level 2! & I’m hoping it’s Regional’s & State material. It’s a very advanced song, & nothing like I’ve played before. So in probably a little more than a month, I’ll be playing it for In-House competition, which is just my school, because I am going up against another kid from my school. & if I beat him, then I go to Regional’s, then if I win Regional’s, I’ll go to State! & hopefully win that! 🙂
Sooo, I tend to use this excuse as often as possible, but I really have been focusing on music a lot more, especially with ODACS, so… again, I apologize! But I am making a cake tomorrow! Grandma Gormans Chocolate Cake. It was in Get in There & Cook, so if you were a regular reader, you know what I’m talking about. But for the new readers [shoot, WHAT readers?!] I’ll blog about it again tomorrow! 🙂
Thanks for reading!!!
