Another Quiet Day

Today was another quiet day. I worked on my calligraphy projects for my parents' Christmas [ahem, or should I say New Year's] present. I am making a scrapbook calendar for them. Each month will have the month's calendar (of course), one to three photos, and a calligraphy verse that complements the photo(s). I got three of the twelve calligraphies done yesterday and today. Tomorrow I'll work on finishing some more of them.

Little man has enjoyed "playing" the piano since he was a few months old. Recently he has decided that he wants to sit on the piano bench by himself. He's getting to be such a big boy! I took these pictures while he was playing the piano today.

I can hardly wait until we can start teaching him about the technical aspects and the joys of musical communication.

We also took an enjoyable yet cold wintry walk. It is so fun to pull Little Man around in his sled and to be able to enjoy the crisp, snowy world.

Another little thing that happened today for which I'm very thankful is that my husband put up clothesline in our basement. This has multiple benefits. It will save on our bills because it limits the amount that the clothes drier is used, the clothes will dry quickly since they are near the wood stove, and the evaporating water will help humidify our house, which we desperately need.

I am looking forward to another quiet day tomorrow as I enjoy my son and my husband on his days off of work.

He looks so cute sitting at the piano!

Calligraphy!! That is one thing on my list of things to learn. My Mom used to do it.
