Back from vacation. Missed my piano but was surprised to find a Kawai digital in one of the three vacation houses we were sharing with our friends. I couldn't play it much and certainly didn't practice so put me on the excused list from Sunday 7/7 to 7/14.

Back to normal tonight smile

I like it too. I don't remember who started it the first year (way before my time here, though I did read about it)...but it was , and is, a great idea!

W/e up at Whistler for the open air concert with Vancouver Symphony playing Mozart,
Mendellson and Dvorak. Full moon rising over the Rockies - couldn't be more romantic.
Had no idea where we were going. To airport, OK, to Vancouver,OK, from domestic through Int'l to coach stop - was is Victoria Ferry or Whistler? Got closer and ended up at the Fairmont where picnic was waiting in time for start . This guy has been hanging around for 40 yrs and still can surprise me! Guess he's a keeper!
By the way, I wish I had recorded my playing before we left . Hope I play as well when we get back.. Still have to make my Ecco fatto debutt!!

I'm back from vacation (and just stayed 45 solid minutes at the piano).
I've been far from a keyboard from July 12th till yesterday, July 22nd. I had fun, but during rainy days - we had a couple of them- I missed my piano so much!

back home. it feels like they are all new pieces! I recorded myself just to hear what it sounded like. Mr Square inspired me to try just using my ipad. What a revelation. I've a lot of work to do. i am so heavy on the keys. But now I hear it I can change it. an hour a day is not enough but I don't know how consistent I can be. Why does life get in the way!

It's not the naughty list my dear, it is the excused list - and you can certainly go there.

I hope you are feeling ok now.

Please may I be excused from 7/20-28, since we spent a week in France. I did have an opportunity where I could have played a piano but alas, I have zero items memorized. Without sheet music I revert to being a non-player. I really want to fix that, sigh...

On the bright side, on arrival home, I found that a book (free via Paperbackswap.com) had arrived.
"Easy Billy Joel Songs" so I'll have some for items for my collection of "Music I hope to play one day."

Cas, please mark me out for August 4-8. I was at a conference in Austin, Texas (good), and got to visit with my daughter while I was there (even better). But I missed my husband so much (even more than my piano smile ). I am very happy to be home.

It's been a while since I've checked in. I'm not sure I'm even "on the wagon" anymore--I know I missed a week during vacation in June, and might have missed a couple other days here and there,
but it's still my intent to practice every day.

One of my big problems is finishing things. I've started a book "Music for Elementary Teachers" several times but never finished it, even though all pieces should be easily within my ability.
I so I'm planning to do piece a day until I DO finish it--unless I hit a harder one that take more than a day. I'll check in from time to time to report progress.
Started Day 1 p. 85 Skip to My Lou; Yesterday was Day 4 Grandfather's Clock.
today it's Hot Time in the Old Town Tonight p 89. The last song is p 254, but there are some chapters in between without a song on each page.

Tinman, I'll put you back on the wagon as of today smile

For keeping us updated on your goals and achievements why don't you post in the FOYD thread (Focus on your Domain) or the Achievement of the Week thread. I suggest this because most folks don't come here to read this thread -it is just for reporting absences or signing up.

Good luck with sticking to your plan!

I'll be away from my G3 form Tuesday 20th Aug thro Sunday 25th Aug. will get to play again on Monday 26th. My youngest son is getting married in Boulder CO. He has a piano but I'm not staying with him so can't practice.
I hate all the stopping and starting with playing but that's life. I get in what I can.
It feels like binge dieting - working hard to stay the same! Consistency is important to really get results in both instances!

Finally back from a longish business trip with no piano. Felt very strange to not get up and play every morning. Missed my wife, my dogs, and my piano....and I'll never tell anyone in what order! grin

Hopefully I can still find middle C when I sit down at the bench this evening.

Please ding me for August 12th through August 18th.

Still in there, in spite of some serious obstacles. The guy downstairs has been sawing intermittently for a week now - I think he's laying a hardwood floor, and cutting lengths of wood as he goes. Cut for 10 minutes - lay a section - cut for 10 more minutes. Sounds like it could even be a parquet design, with lots of really little inlaid pieces. I got up at 5 for a few days & practiced on the digital, so I could get some time in before he started. But today he stopped for lunch & never started again so I've had a blissful hour playing my accoustic. ♥♥♥ Maybe he's FINISHED!!

joyoussong - bummer! I am so glad i live out in the country. But then maybe I'd be bothering neighbours with my practice if i was in town. I use my headphones if its serious practise and my other half is in the house, otherwise I just love to hear the acoustic for myself. Wonder if your neighbour knows you play piano!

I think everyone at this end of the building knows. But there are 2 other people with acoustics & 2 with digitals (plus me with both), so it's a pretty forgiving place. The woman directly below me plays too - much better than I do, she's been playing for 50+ years - so the guy on the ground floor probably hears her more than me. I usually close doors & windows, too, if I'm playing the acoustic.

If I can still join at this late date please sign me up. I have been playing since 4/1/13 and the only days I've missed have been four days of family vacation. I even bought a 61 key yamaha to take on business trips. You know for evenings in the hotel. I guess that will send me straight to the excused list...
