How I did Last year


2011
Just Do It 
Ecclesiastes 9:10
Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.
  1. I will read my Bible through in an year. Well... no I did not finish
  2. I will work on improving my stamina and flexibility.I can now walk two miles on my heels 
  3. I will work on my attitude towards stressful situations.  Well I cannot see a huge improvement but I guess it is there
  4. I want to be able to identify the different constellations so I can find my way around better. I can identify about four more 
  5. I want to be caught up in school by the end of this year. Did I really think I could do this? We have had and been getting ready for company all year long, I am about eight months behind. 
  6. I will read fifty two educational novels this year. I think I read twenty? 
  7. I will publish my book by the end of the year. Not, I started a second blog but after I finished the book I was working on I went back and reread it and well... I am starting completely over at the beginning. 
  8. I wish to be able to work with others without getting in a fight on how to and not to do it. I am still stubborn but I am indeed more willing to listen to others and use their ideas. 


V. Victory
K. Kind
A. Attitude
T. Thrifty
H. Honest 
I. Information
E. Enthusiasm

Looking Back



There once lived a girl in her early teens, she was bitter and full of hate. She flunked in school and argued with her teachers. Though to see her you would never think so, Though her eyes burned with hate when she got around someone she felt had done her wrong she was for the most part, at least outwardly cheerful.

But she was in hidden denial of attority unless it made since to her. The fact was she was afraid and depressed. For years now she had suppressed her imagination to the point where it backfired on her every chance it got.

Then with the death of her grandmother and a horrid accident involving her mother and two younger siblings (none of which were killed) she was driven deep into depression.

Not everyday was dreary but for the most part she just wanted to die. She tried six different times to commit suicide but each time God intervened in a amazing way.

First time she tried to get bit by a snake. She though she found one and took of her shoes and stepped on it... it ended up being a pile of sticks.

Another time she jumped off the bank of a deep gully and landed on a old soft thing and bounced.

Another time she tried to kill herself someone found her and talked her out of it.
She made that friend promise not to tell anyone about it and she didn't. Nobody knew.
 
You may be asking yourself now "Who is this?"

This girl was me three years ago. And I will admit to being ashamed of my actions at that time. I was a true hypocrite. I pretended that everything going fine, but as you can tell things weren't.

And I will tell you I am not that way anymore. I don't remember exactly what triggered the change. Perhaps the fact I let me use my imagination again, maybe it was the fact that I started witting down my songs and poem here. Maybe it was working with horses, or my being able to read my Bible for myself. Probably it was everything working together. Whatever it was God has worked in my life. I can honestly say I am not that girl anymore.

Life is a beautiful thing, it may not be easy, but I am not afraid like I was to face my problems head on. God is good and he cares for me in amazing ways. Everything that has happened over the last two years has worked for good to make me a happier person. I am not perfect, but killing myself won't help matters any. Suicide is simply a perminate answer to a temporary problem. And it is completely unnecessary.

This is why this year I am thankful for life, I am thankful for those around me, I am thankful for my imagination, and being who I am and what I am.

Being Supportive



(Based on Philippians 2:3-11)

May I not do get into fights over who should do it.
Or brag over what I've done.
But in humility may I see other's work more important than my own.
I should not look at what I've done with prideful air, but I should look around to see what still needs to be done.
Let me think the way Jesus thought.
For he was the image of god and did not think it robbery to be equal with him.
But he humbled himself, and being a nobody was willing to be a servant, in the form of human flesh.
And he humbled himself furter, he was willing not only to die, but die painfully hanging by nails in his hands and feet to a cross.
Wherefore God has put him at his right hand and given him a name that is above every name.
That  at his name all things whether in heaven or earth or under the earth shall bow and proclaim him King of kings and Lord of lords, to the glory of GOD the FATHER.
So as Jesus was willing to support his family so shalt I e're be willing to support mine.

Love Chapter Essay


1Corinthians 13 (The love chapter)


What is love?
Is it what we feel in our breast?
Is it a kiss on a moon-lit night?
Is it the willingness to speak with anyone?
Or singing for the old and hurting?
Is it giving all I own to those who have nothing?
What is love?
Is it flowers, or chocolate?
How about a dozen freshly baked cookies?
Those are all nice and good,
But I don't think that is love.
What is the love God tells me,
to give to all freely.
How do I show that love?
Love suffers,
It is kind,
It is compassionate to all.
It isn't proud.
It treats all with respect.
It thinks of others,
Before it thinks of itself.
It rejoices with those who are happy.
And cries with the sad.
It doesn't avoid the ugly.
It doesn't tease the fat.
It is a friend to the shy and the fearful.
It is a comfort for those without.
It is a Mother to the motherless.
And a Father who have no dad.
It is a sibling to the only child.
It is always hopeful.
It is always truthful.
It rejects sin.
And clings to righteousness.
Bears all things
Hopes for all things
Believes all things.
Endures all things.
Everything else shall fail.
Where it be governments,
Or prophecies
Or promises.
Languages shall be no more.
And knowledge... well people forget.
For now we only know a bit.
But when God returns we shall know in full.
For we see in a darkened glass.
But then we shall see face to face.
When I was little,
I did not know much,
And I made quite a fool of myself.
But as I grow up I learn more and am able to avoid being embarrassed.
As well as embarrassing others.
Faith, Hope, Love,
These three,
But the greatest, and hardest,
Is LOVE.

Inspiration: One, Two, Three!



From the Rod and Staff Reader "A Time to Build"


There was an old, old, old, old lady,
And a boy who was half past three; 
And the way that they played together 
Was beautiful to see.

She couldn't go romping and jumping, 
And the boy, no more could he;
For he was a thin little fellow, 
With a thin little twisted knee.

They sat in the yellow sunlight, 
out under the maple tree; 
And the game they played I'll tell you, 
Just as it was told to me.

It was hide-and-go-seek they were playing, 
Though you'd never have known it to be-
With an old, old, old, old lady,
And a boy with a twisted knee. 

The boy would bend his face down
On his one little sound right knee,
And guess where she was hiding,
In guess one, Two, Three. 

"You are in the china closet!" 
He would laugh and cry with glee-
It wasn't the china closet,
But he still had Two and Three.

"You are in Papa's big bedroom,
In the chest with the queer old key!" 
And she said: "You are warm and warmer.
But you're not quite right," said she.

"It can't be the little cupboard
Where Mamma's things used to be- 
So it must be the clothespress, Gran'ma!" 
And he found her with his three. 

Then she covered her face with her fingers
That were wrinkled and white and wee,
And she guessed where the boy was hiding,
With a One and a Two and a Three. 

And they never stirred from their places 
Right under the maple tree-
This old, old, old, old lady,
And the boy with the lame little knee- 
This dear, dear, dear, old lady, 
And the boy who was half-past three.

What I learned this week: A little sister's following me!


I have always been told to watch what I do because my siblings were watching.... OK so I did not quite believe it. 

Well yesterday I was sitting at my desk when I heard Sunshine behind me (We found the toy kitchen food that I used as a kid and had stashed it in her kitchen and she was having a delightful time playing with her "new" toys.) "Oh MY GOODNESS!!! It's a FISH!!!" 

Well one of my catch phrases is Oh my goodness, and that day I had used it a lot as we were going trough some of the toys I had as a child and I was going down memory lane. 

I looked up and said "How to know when you have used a phrase too much, Your Sib starts using it." 

"Yep" 

You gatta love that kid.

Act of service: Dad's office


This for me will be a more difficult topic. Servants should keep their mouths shut I believe on what they do.

But the them of this blog is Making Me a Servant so I should tell you what I learn week by week on how to do that.

Being a servant is never easy. Human nature is to be a princess or prince all the time but no where in the Bible can I find that it says we should act like Royalty. On the contrary it clearly states that we should endeavor to be servants.

One of the things I did this week; My father is cleaning out his office so while he was gone Monday I helped.  It looks a Ton better. Dad was over joyed and so was everyone else. It made me feel better to because the state of the house is the state of my brain, in other words; I can't function in a messy house. And I know I am not the only one.

Inspiration: The Morning Calm



This story originally was written for a contest but there was not enough entries so the contest fell through. Well people kept saying that this should be turned into a novel so for NaNoWriMo this will be the book I work on.  

Enjoy! 




A roosters call broke through the mornings silence

Lady Katherine sat up and stretched. The soft pre-dawn light shone through the gigantic window near her bed. 

The  rooster  sounded once again. 

She stood up and again stretched. She glanced back at the warm bed. It was tempting, Man was it tempting, but no,  she was not going to climb back into bed and miss her morning calm. 

She slipped into a soft flowing green gown.  She let the feeling of the material warm her soul. She began to sing a happy, but calm song. This was the beginning of her morning calm. 

She glanced at her desk; a solid oak desk covered in papers to be read, documents  that needed to be sighed, and numerous reports began... but never finished.  This was tempting. But no, she was not going to miss the morning calm. 

She picked up her flute and began to play the tune while she danced out her down the stairs, out to the square, and through the almost empty streets of the town. This was her morning calm. 

"Lady Katherine!" The baker’s deep voice reached ear. "Would you like some bread?" 

She shook her head. No, she was not going to eat now. The outpost was having a food shortage and she was not going to take from her subjects. Part of being a leader, she had learned two years earlier when she had become the leader at age twenty-five, was that they had to have more self-control than anybody else. She would not eat more than her ration, No matter how tempting. Two days... two days and the supply ships would come and they would have food. But would she let her stomach steal her morning calm? No! 

She danced on, cross the meadow, and to the lake. She slipped off her sandals and stood in the cool, cool water. Her eyes closed as the sun rose, her fingers slowing so she felt the music as well as the early sun. This was her morning calm. 

A calm that was for a moment, like a vapor that disappears too soon, her worries, and fears were absent. The morning’s joys filling her heart for now she was part of the music, a part of the calm about.

The birds, as they awoke, joined in her song. Each of the many voices was a wonderful thing, a twitter, a tweet, now here, now there; this was part of the calm. This was indeed the beautiful morning calm. 

Oh how she loved this moment. How she longed for it every day. As the music fill the meadow, and crossed every one of the glades. The peace that rarely was present, was here. A peace that was sweet, a peace that was full of hope, like a hug to the weary, or a kiss to the sad, this was her morning calm.  

Now the moment was gone, the moment of wonderful joy. The clock told her the time, the time to start the day. This was the end of her moment. But a moment spent in a special way. She left the water so cool; Slipped on her shoes, and returned to the meeting hall, to be part of her people, their trials, and the pain, till tomorrow when she would be here again.

Oh silly me: everyone knows bowls go on your head.


Me as a baby

Life goals: What I want in a Husband



Just for the record, I ain't huntin. I don't care if I ever get married at this point. This is simply a list of what I expect if anybody decides to send my parents an application. Actually it is a school assignment  I am working my way through Polished cornerstones for school and one of the assignments is list of what I want in a husband.
  1. Born again Bible believing Christian that I agree 90% with. 
  2. Brown hair.... don't tease I have a thing with brown hair, not that I want it myself but I think brown hair makes boys look more manly. 
  3. Strong and I don't mean a boy who spends eight hours a day in the gym type of strong. I want a Country Redneck who knows how to gentle a horse, rope a cow, milk a goat, mind the fields, and fix about any car problem that he comes across. 
  4. Welder. I want a boy who has been taught welding. It is a little known skill that is a very useful, especially on a farm. 
  5. Comes from a larger homeschooling family. 
  6. Taller than me. That shouldn't be too hard since I am only 5'3" . 
  7. Gets along well with his siblings, and other family, and church members.- gets along well with children. 
  8. Leader, not boss. 
  9. Able and willing to support a family. 
  10. Large productive family farm. 
  11. House already bought. Someone who thinks ahead and plans for the future. I don't want to be renting for the first eight years of marriage. Manages his money well.
  12. Not messy, nor a neat freak. I would like him in between not overly messy that I am constantly following along behind him picking up EVERYTHING for him, but not so neat that if I have not had time to pick up after the kids he isn't too upset, but is willing pitches in and helps keep the house clean when I cannot fully keep up. 
  13. Smiles a lot and has a sense of humor. 
  14. Willing to learn something new when needed. 
  15. Musical abilities. (I just know I will be happier if I have someone to sing and play music with) 
  16. Overprotective, (that does not mean jealous)  
  17. Basic carpentry skills. 
I will continue to work on this over the next few years. It probably sounds a bit selfish now. Don't worry, I will polish it.

Next week I will post my list of things that I am going to be. If I expect this much from him I also expect much from myself.

Messy Pictures

This week is Messy Pictures 


Toffee and Buddy-roe fighting over a rug. 
They ended up putting a hole in it.


Sunshine having a tea party 


Eating watermelon 


This Picture I am very proud of.
 Sunshine was falling.


Toffee digging up the flower bed 


she had a messy hand. LOL 


After playing in the water sprinklers the kids looked like this. YUCK! 






What I learned this week: Mirror, Mirror


This is something that has actually been brewing in my mind for quite some time. It started one day when I was yelling at a Sibling for something I was... well guilty of myself when Mom said Now hold a mirror and say it again. 

I thought she was nuts she told me to think about it, and I have been. 

God has commanded us to bridle our tongues, and do unto others as we would have them do to you. 

Dad has always reminded me whenever I point fingers, that when I point one at my sister there are three pointing back at me. 

SO what have I learned? I learned that if you are going to go around judging people and pointing out faults. DON'T GET UPSET WHEN THEY DO IT BACK. We should always look in the mirror  when we correct something and see if we have anything in our own eyes.

MY Artsy Award





I've been awarded the Artsy Award by My sister Kendra E Ardnek



Rules
1. Normally this is where it says "thank the person who gave you the award and leave a link to their blog etc. etc." Well, you can do that if you want. I mean, if you like the award and you're glad you got it and you can do that. Or you can just copy this and have people listen to me rambling. :)

So ... The questions Kendra asked me:


1.) What is your opinion of Grape flavored Candy? Depends, but most of the time, Yuck.

It's in Your Face



This too is one I had to memorize three four years ago. 

Poem from the Rod&Staff Time to Plant Reader book 

It's in Your Face
Auther unknown 
You don't have to tell how you live each day,
You don't have to say if you work or play:
A tried, true barometer serves in the place;
However you live, it shows in your face.

The false the deceit you bear in your heart,
Will not stay inside, where it first got a start, 
For sinew and blood are a thin veil of lace;
What you wear in your heart you wear in your face.

If your life is unselfish for others you live,
For not what you get, but for how much you give, 
IF you live close to God, in His infinite grace, 
You don't have to tell it, it shows in your face.

Can a Girl be TOO modest?


Can a girl be Too modest? This is a hard question, and one I am going to have to do some serous meditation on for years to come. But I will answer to the best of my ability.

So to begin I am going to back up. What is the purpose of modesty?  The purpose of modesty is #1 To not call attention to your self, and #2 To not make your brother stumble. Men are affected by looks and actions, so the more modest we are the less they will stumble, so as far as number two goes no we can never be too modest; the thing is number one.

 Modesty is a wide topic. It includes actions, clothes,and words. OK so as far as Words go, No you can never be too modest... that is if it is in your nature.If however you are putting on an act then yes your actions or words can be too modest.

Before I go on I am going to make one thing clear, I do believe in being in style and I am going to explain why. Being in style helps you not call undue attention to your self. What I am against is wearing a style that is immodest  and you're going, But I thought you just said that being in style helps you stay modest. Remember there are two different reasons to being modest. Some things are in style but are not modest as far as the second is concerned.

 Now I am going to tell you why I brought this issue up. I have seen this happen, One girl believes all styles are immodest so she has decided that if it is in style, she won't were it. Now whenever she goes anywhere every eye is on her not because she is immodest, but because she is so different. So in this instance she is Too modest.

Let me give you another instance. I am from down south, Let's say I decide to go to Amish country and I were what I normally wear. Now what I am wearing is in style and it is modest but because it is not the norm all the guys would stare and be thinking things about me that a guy from where I live would not. So here again I am too modest.

Now a Amish girl comes to stay where I live. Her dresses sweep the floor have long sleeves and neck lines go clear to her chin. She is very modest but it is 101F outside. People from around here would think she's NUTS. Then again she is too modest.

Now here is one on actions. A girl is dressed in a long flowing skirt with a modest top, she is in style, But she is tumbling about letting her skirt go high over her head. She is dressed modestly But the modestly she chose was not modest for what she was doing. She would have been better of wearing a leotard with a swim skirt that what she actually wore.

This is just a scratch in the bucket. If you have have a suggestion on how a girl can be modest but not. Please comment below. I think all of us females can benefit off of this topic.

Pictures with Words and Letters


This week is Letters and words. 
Unfortunately the picture of the mailbox full of mail did not come out... Sigh, Oh well here are some fun pictures. 




Museum Amtrak train I visited 



Go to the Ant poster I made. 


Smile sign I picked up. 


My favorite language in the world. 
American Sign language
I know about 200 signs 
(Believe me there are days which the sign I need is not one I know) 




What I learned this week: Green Eggs, God & Listening


This morning Buddy-roe came up to me and said. You know the book GREEN EGGS AND HAM. 

I gave him the look. "Of course I know about Green Eggs and Ham." 

"Did you know it is like the Bible."

"No, it is not. Please leave me alone I am a little busy right now" 

"Yes, it is V. You see in the beginning of the book Sam is trying to get the dog person to eat the Green Eggs & Ham and he will not do it not here there or anywhere. Then Sam finally gets him to stop and listen and he actually likes them." 

That is when it clicked. Yes indeed it was so. I am not sure if  Dr. Suss was trying to imply this message but this is what he got. The dog person known as I is a lot like those of us who do not like God and we don't want anything to do with him. Sam was like a missionary who is constiantly evangelizing to (I) and where ever he goes he is always ready to tell of Jesus. 

We as Christians need to be like Sam. This world we are living in is lost. Remember the line "In the dark, would you, could you in the dark?" I view this as a challenge to all of us we need to be ready to tell even if the punishment for doing so is death. We need to be ready to tell anywhere and everywhere we go. 

This is on thing I learned. The other is, Sometimes it pays to listen when your brother is talking.

My inspiration: Which are you



This is a poem I had to memorize for school a couple of years ago. 
ROD & STAFF, TIME TO PLANT - READER 5

Which Are You?
Author Unknown 
I watched them tearing a building down,
A gang of men in a busy town; 
With a ho-heave-ho and a lusty yell,
They swung a beam and the timbers fell.
I asked the foreman,"Are these men skilled,
And the men you'd hire if you had to build?"
He gave a laugh and said,"No indeed! 
Just common labor is all I need.
I can easily wreck in a day or two
What builder's have taken a year to do!"

And I thought to myself as I went my way,
Which of these roles have I tried to play?
Am I a builder who works with care,
measuring my life by the rule and square?
am I shaping my life to a well made plan,
Patiently doing the best I can?
Or am I a wrecker, who walks through the town 
Content with the labor of tearing down?

My Ninth Grade Goals



This year my goals are simple. 


  1. Get Caught up. Life has been hectic for as long as I can remember and I am a few months behind. 
  2. Read through the Bible in a year. And Keep caught up in PC (Polished Cornerstones.)
  3. Finish English 7th grade and all of 8th. This is Rod and Staff English (Put out by the Minnoites)  so it is a bit more tricky that most. I had to do 4th grade twice before I was able to even remotely comprehend what it was teaching. There are only 10 books. 
  4. Do 6th and 7th grade Rod and Staff Readers. I am a severe dyslexic and reading and writing do not come very easily to me. 
  5. Continue with my History. I am currently in the Renascence. I am also going to try to complete Texas State History. And I will see how far I can get everywhere else. It will depend on how many books the library has on any given area of history. 
  6. Science: I think this year is  Physical, I could be wrong.
  7. Math: Algebra 1
  8. Geography 
  9. Health.
  10. Violin and Piano for an hour a day everyday. 
  11. Sewing class for an hour a day. 
  12. music and theater arts 
  13. Anthropology 
  14. 3-5 Hours a week at the Therapeutic Equestrian center. (Can I make it seven? doubt it. not with that work load.) 

Ok, So maybe not. But if I try hard I should be able to do it, Lord willing.  Let's just hope this is not a TOO difficult year.

My Personal Dress Code



Deuteronomy 22:5 KJV The woman shall not wear that which pertains unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are an abomination unto the LORD your God.

Deuteronomy 22:5 NIV A woman must not wear men's clothing, nor a man wear women's clothing, for the LORD your God detests anyone who does this.

This is one out of many verses I use to determine My personal dress code. These are MY lines not my parents'. Mom gave me a list of verses and I set my own boundaries. 

I live out in the country so everything I wear must be compatible with my surroundings. 

Hair: I prefer to wear my hair up, or at least pulled back. I do not wear head bands too often, But scarfs, hats, kerchiefs, and flowers are a normal sight.  

Jewelry:  I like Jewelry that does not get in the way of my work. I wear a watch, a simple bracelet, safety earrings and two necklaces that are up close to  my neck so when I bend over they do not catch anything. 


Shirts: I Prefer to wear a polo, But I also wear T-shirts. I prefer high necklines to lower ones. I do not wear halter tops or anything tight. 

Skirts: I do not wear skirts that are less than two fingers below my knees, preferable at the ankle. I prefer if they are full so they do not hinder my movement. 

Pants&such: I do not wear shorts. But I don't mind capreas. I typicality wear a pair of leggings under my shorter skirts, but only for that reason. Jeans are the preferred, and not white. Living on a farm white does not last long. Bleach is a necessity whenever I do where white. I am not the best at staying clean. 

Dresses: High neckline, SLEEVED, Low skirt, full back. I don't like showing off my body thank-you very much. 

SHOES: My current pair of everyday shoes is a pair of water proof hiking boots with ankle support. This enables me to do my work without having to worry about toes or ankles or anything else. I also have a pair of sandals for around the house. A pair of sandals for church and two pair of nice church boots, one with high heals one without. (depends on the outfit which pair I wear) 

I do not believe in TIGHT, or sexy outfits. That calls undo attention to myself. Nor do I wear to overly old fashioned outfits. I like to be in fashion as long as it does not conflict with my moral beliefs.

Pictures of Sound - From my childhood



http://www.the123blog.com/2012/09/saturday-snapshots-this-weeks-theme-is_15.html





Bouncy sound

(this was one of my favorite toys growing up.)

]


Peek-a-boo with pooh. Talk about giggles.




Ring-a-ding I just love Bells 





Crunch 
I think this is a all around classic 





Music,
 This has got to be my favorite sound in the universe. I have been playing the Violin for two years now.
 I am learning piano as well. People say I should do music more in public but, Even though I am Comfortable acting, singing is a whole different ball park.

High-school goals


YIKES!!!!

 I WAS JUST INFORMED I AM IN HIGH-SCHOOL THIS YEAR!!!!!

OK, so it isn't that bad. I guess... But I always considered those in high-school as OLD....So.... what do I want to do.

Thankfully Mom sent me a list of the options.

GO MOM!!!!


Required:
Bible and Devotions  (includes Polished Cornerstones)  (4 credits)
English  (3 credits)
Literature/Reading  (2 credits)
History  (3 credits / World / American / Ancient)
Science  (4 credits / Physical / Biology / Chemistry / Physics )
Math  (3 credits )
Government  (1 credit)
Geography  (1/2)
High School level health  (1/2)
Texas State History  -  Jr. High Credit.  Must have a C to pass.


 OK So that is 19 Credits, I need at lest 9 more OK so this should be fun 



Optional
Language: 
Music
Sports
Writing
Accounting
Art

Open to other ideas

So here is the list of Ideas mom sent me. Now which to choose. 

I am going to be taking 2 years of Piano and 2 years of Violin so that is 4 credits. 



Anthropology (1Credit) 



Economics  (1Credit)

I want to take Latin, Greek, and Hebrew. That would be 3 more 

I would like to  work on my writing abilities, though I doubt I can get credits for writing, editing, and publishing  books. ;D

I also will be taking 2 years of classes at the  Equine therapeutic center. Though not till I turn 16 because you are not admitted into the program till then.

I think that will keep me pretty busy. I probity will be working on quite a bit more. (Just because those are the only collage courses I have written down to study, does not mean I might decide to work on some others. And I doubt I will ever stop learning. Intelligence is  the door to freedom, and alert attention is the mother of intelligence.)

This November My aunt is going to move into the guest house that used to be my Grandfather's house before he remarried. The house still is still fully furnished but we need to clean out a few rooms so Aunt V. has places to put her stuff.  To have a look at what I have been doing. (I am Song)

  2. Do 100 school goals.

MY ROOM:
  1. Swap book cases 
  2. Find and organize my sewing area. (it has gone missing in a pile of material and other sewing necessities) 
  3. Compact my Horse stuff and put into a canister so Buddy-roe does not have to come through my room to use the Bathroom.  
Music:
  1. Be ready to play DAY BY DAY on the fiddle by Thanksgiving. (I will be playing in a Quartet Violin, Flute, Piano, Harp.)
