Checking in to say we were away on a long weekend. I managed to play the morning before we left, and when we got home today, so only 2 days off! 26 and 27 April

I'm on pause. smile Haven't been near a piano unless it's at my lesson for the last while. Soon as I can manage I'll get back on the wagon. Right now I'm trying to just get a few days in a week. I'll let you guys know soon as I can get back on a daily schedule.

Meantime, this week I'm shooting for three days at the keys! (baby stepping back in... lol)

I'll be away from practice for 7 days starting 4/29. My bride of 45 years came with me to Hawaii. I think this is my first absence from piano in 2-3 years.

Ah, practice was going so well -- hadn't missed a day all year.

But I was unable to find an instrument while I was away April 13th - 22nd to help with dear daughter's wedding. So now I must ask for permission to join the "excused" list. Rats! frown

Happy anniversary! 45 years is certainly something to celebrate!

Well, that's a very good reason for missing piano! Best wishes to the newlyweds!

Always good to hear an update! Sometimes it is hard to get in music every single day, but it is always worth it, don't you think?

Just checking in.
I was talking with at piano teacher the other day,
trying to explain why I"m still on "book 3" after "playing" for an embarrassingly long number of years.
I offered the excuse that "I don't have a Mommy to make me practice anymore."

Then I remembered "MOM"D--It's the "MOM" that keeps me practicing now.

NOw I'm back up at the Winery for the summer season, it is such a lot of work. Between the vines and the garden my arms feel as off they are dropping off. If it wasn't for MOYD I would have passed on piano through sheer exhaustion. but I've managed to keep going, and now practise very early, for at east a half hour before I start feeling guilty about not getting on with other stuff.

You work at a winery? How very cool!
Good for you - maintaining your piano work at the end of such tiring days!

MOYD works. I haven't missed a day of practicing so far this year. Even when I had a cold and didn't really feel like practicing, knowing I would have to "fess up", got me to the bench. I just passed 2500 hours practice total since I returned to piano as an adult! That seems like some kind of a milestone, but I know I still have a long way to go before I can call myself competent!

However now I will have a little break from practice. I am heading to Spain for a week. I need to be on the excused list from May 13-20. I should be back on the bench by the 21st! I will miss my piano (Mr. B), but I will enjoy the warmer weather. It is still cold in central Switzerland!

Wow, that's a lot of hours! I've never kept a log, I wonder...? I doubt I'll start, but it is an interesting idea.

EDITED TO ADD: So I just spent a few minutes figuring out how many days I've missed playing since Christmas Day 2009 - about 50 all told - (1 sick day and the rest travel, primarily when visiting family in Canada)...that leaves me with 1172 days of playing, and an average of at least an hour a day --(some days with just a few minutes but other days with several hours, most days with 2 30-40 minute stretches...)

I've put this here mostly for my own interest, but since I went to the trouble to calculate it, I figured I'd post.
So...roughly another 9,000 hours to go before I'm really good eh? lol.

Have a wonderful time in Spain - where are you visiting? Enjoy the sunshine!

I think I'll need to be excused tomorrow. I'm working in the provincial election - have to leave @ 6:30 a.m. & won't get home till 9:30 or later. &, since my digital's currently wrapped in plastic to protect it from reno dust (the reno was supposed to be finished last Friday) I can't really play before 6:30 am or after 9:30 pm. - too loud on the accoustic. But I've scheduled a day off on Wednesday, so I'll try to make up the practice time.

Renovations are a nightmare - I hope they get cracking and wind things up soon! Hope your long day goes smoothly!

It is a bit early, but ok, I'll mark you out for that day....I suppose you'll have a missed day on your way back too?...or will you arrive home before you left, so to speak smile ?

I'm currently in Australia (work-related) and will finally be heading back home (Canada) permanently to my wife, home, and better-quality digital piano. But! To save you the trouble, I will play piano that day, since it's still the same day wink I depart June 14th, and arrive back home June 14th. I can play the cheap digital piano I have here for a bit before having to head to the airport, to relieve some airport/flying anxiety.

So, don't mark me out for that day. I WILL PLAY!

Edit: I will never be an ex-pat Canuck - not by choice smile

kiss the wife, pat the dog and straight to the piano, is that the right order?
Say hi to the Trailer Park Boys for me, saw them live in Sydney last year, very strange show.

Well, I survived my long day yesterday spent today at home recuperating (& practicing). I sure hope my reno gets finished this friday so I can unwrap my digital - I miss being able to play at any time of day or night.

Haha! The Trailer Park Boys are one of those things you can't believe your country produced (in a bad way). But, sure, if they're in my neck of the woods, I'll say hi to the bunch for you wink I'll surely miss your country, earlofmar - especially the Aussie (Rules) Football League!

Oh, and I played 2 hours of piano today, working mainly on the 3rd movement of Beethoven's Sonata No. 5, Op. 10 No. 1. Not on the naughty list just yet.

Ok... Maestro57 - back on the "pure" list you go! I'm not familiar with the Beethoven you're working on (at least not by name...) I'll have to check it out. Likewise the Trailer Park Boys that Earlofmar mentioned.....no idea!

AimeeO - good work!

Carol - glad you made it through the long tough day! Hope you get your piano out of wraps soon!

On the road for business today. I'm going to try to get to a piano somewhere before the end of the day, but unless I do I may have to fall off the "pure" list.
