My Guitar Lesson Day


Today was my guitar lesson day. Above you can see my guitar. It’s a Taylor ‘Baby’, and the 3/4 size is perfect for me. A full size guitar is just too big. I learned that many women play the smaller size. In an earlier post I showed a photo of my first guitar. Take a look. I began teaching myself, but finally started taking lessons. Now I actually practice every day. It’s amazing how having a teacher can make you push yourself harder. At least that is how it is for me. I love playing and I’m so glad that I made the move to private lessons and a guitar that fits me perfectly.

A Day at Bowers Museum

Bowers Museum entrance
Earlier this week, we spent a day at Bowers Museum in Santa Ana, California. The weather was gorgeous and we enjoyed the museum grounds as well as the many indoor exhibits.

These gold earrings were part of the Spirits and Headhunters:Art of the Pacific Islands exhibit. Each earring is approximately the size of a hand.

Pumpkins for Autumn and Halloween Decorations Brighten the Day

Mixed Pumpkins
As Winter gets closer, the mornings are darker and a little grayer. I’m more aware of it because I have to walk Annika a little later every day. As we walked through our neighborhood plaza this morning, I spotted these colorful pumpkins and realized why I love the color orange at this time of year. I was surprised to see so many varieties.
Here are a few more orange pumpkins, plusĀ  white ones as well. I do love this time of the year, especially when I see such lovely bright colors.
