I haven’t picked up my fiddle in 4 days! Today, I will finally have some time for practice. Last weekend was very good. I even recorded a new tune on Monday, Angeline the Baker. Then, everything began to fall apart. I was out of state for two days for a wake and funeral, came home to eight wholesale orders for our home business, and developed a summer chest cold that just seems to be zapping all my energy.
I felt like I was on a good roll coming off the weekend and this would be a good week with my fiddle, but it just wasn’t in the cards. So, today, I will get back on track! My current tune is Julianne Johnson.
I can say one thing. I don’t have any of that “guilt” that I haven’t played in four days or the “fear” that somehow this is the beginning of the end like I did when I first started and missed a day. Granted, this is the longest stretch in five months, but sometimes life gets in the way, I guess. The only thing I can do is pick up where I left off and move forward.
Not much else to report, so I will stop writing, tune up and have a practice session. Just wanted to check in since I usually don’t go this long between posts either.
