  Today, since it’s a “teaching day”, I’m thankful for my piano studio, my students, and my piano 🙂   When I was growing up, my dad was a minister, meaning we lived in whatever parsonage the church chose to let us live in.  The one we had in Pawcatuck, CT had an upright piano …

40 Days of Thankfulness: Day Zero

  Several years ago I decided to try Facebook’s 40 Days of Thankfulness and I’m going to post all 40 days here since I know that it will auto-post to Facebook and my blogs. Although I have had several problems in my life (and who hasn’t?), I’m sure I can come up with at least …

My Favorite Holiday :)

  If you know me, you know that I nearly always have a cup of coffee nearby, at all times.  I’m glad that coffee has its own day now 🙂   The date might not be marked on your calendar, but if you are like more than 50 percent of adults who drink coffee every …
