long overdue i know! (and a pimp)

Been busy, been sick, and still so much on the to do list! Just this morning i have canned baby pickled carrots, beets and have numerous herbs drying in the dehydrator now. The dinner is in the crock pot as well as a huge bowl of garden lettuce waiting for dinner too. I finally took apart the old earring rack i had and attached to screen into the cool revamped frame i picked up at the goodwill for a whopping 1.29 and hung it. Like i said, lots still on the to do list though. (painting, getting etsy re set up, knitting, sewing, dying, practicing the dulcimer as well as learning the new songs on our song list)

Did i tell you we played a party last tuesday? Went very well and lots of business card requests. So we may be very busy this summer. Was very enjoyable set up on the lake, we were treated as guests and had not charged as it was a good friend of the drummers graduation party for their son. But their daughter had set up a tip jar and we earned 300. in an hour and a half of just goofing/ a practice with an audience. It is always so weird because i do not believe you can really hear yourself when you sing. I mean i feel i can carry a tune but always get a bit self conscious when approached with praise after a gig. (we just aquired a second guitar player who kind of checked us out that day. He has played professionally for years in numerous bands but with a family now builds frets for many very famous guitar players. He gave me a huge compliment and now wants to join us. So fun!!) We do this for fun, everyone has to have a day job as we do not want to be famous, do not want to play out too many times a month as we all have families, etc. Call it stress management if you will.

More later and maybe a few pics!

Pimp: Tell darcy Turtle sent you!
