Day 423: Twinkling

I borrowed a violin from a friend.  One that's my size.  And I played it today.  The first six variations of Twinkle Theme (if you're familiar with the Suzuki Method) and Lightly Row.  And then my bent thumb got tired on the bow, so I stopped for the day.

But it was FANTASTIC!  Seriously.  I had so much fun playing it.  When I was a little girl, I wanted to take violin lessons.  My parents said no.  I can't imagine why.  I was only already enrolled in piano, ballet, tap, and swim lessons.  Honestly.  My mom told me she didn't think I'd stick with it.  I'm pretty sure she was right.

But I'm an adult now.  And since I've had to be so involved in Sweet P's and now Little M's learning, I've learned quite a bit myself and I was pretty proud of my playing today.  Sweet P definitely sounds better, but I didn't sound too terrible.  And I think my form was decent.

Anyway, in case you couldn't already tell, playing that violin was today's Joyful Moment.  One that I'm pretty excited to repeat tomorrow!

Wishing you all Joyful Moments that twinkle!

I do wish we'd let you take lessons. Thanks for forgiving us and moving ahead with your goal - We hope to hear a duet or trio one of these days. It was warm enough to open all the windows for hours today which made me very joyful.
