24 Hours of My Life

8:30 PM – Started logging 24 hours of my life due to a topic prompt on words.bighugelabs.com. I haven’t posted much of anything on my blog, so this is my lame attempt at coming up with content. Maybe it’ll turn out to be kinda fun, though!

9:00 PM – Played a couple Bach Cello Suites, and Vivaldi Cello Sonata in A Minor. It’s been a little while since I’ve played… I visited a different church last Sunday so I didn’t play for church, and I’ve been super busy at work all week so I didn’t have too much extra time in the day when I wasn’t totally exhausted.

9:40 PM – Went to bed after a dessert of Strawberry Shortcake with vanilla and Rocky Road ice cream. I’m tuckered out from the day – it was good though, ’cause I finally got my car fixed!

8:30 AM – Woken up by Chad for breakfast. They fixed scones, grits, and scrambled eggs – delicious! Had some weird dreams last night – don’t remember any of them, except that they all involved me hiding from bad guys.

10:30 AM – Went to church at the Yess’ house. Garth talked more from Ephesians 6 about being imitators of Christ, and what that entails. Afterwards we shared a meal and visited.

2:45 PM – Went to Wildlife Prairie State Park. Showed the folks all the work I’ve done there over the past year – Silver Fox pen, bear pen, various roofs and odd jobs, and the two current projects (rebuilding a pavilion and building a butterfly pen). We got ice cream and supper at Culver’s after.

6:45 PM – Went out and rode Oakey with my cousin Kiersti. It was kinda overcast this morning, but cleared up and was a gorgeous evening for riding. We gave Oakey a much needed grooming – Spirit was too skittish to get near enough to be brushed.

8:30 PM – Had some milk and cookies while I posted this.


O Come, O Come Emmanuel

This is an arrangement for three cellos of “O Come, O Come Emmanuel” that I worked up this morning. All three parts were played by Yours Truly.

Healing Incantation

My arrangement for two cellos of “Healing Incantation” from the movie “Tangled”.

Arrangement for solo Cello – “Granny”

I just finished arranging this for my Great-Granny who’ll be 102 on October 23! It’s a compilation of “How Great Thou Art”, “Let Me Call You Sweetheart”, “Brother, Can You Spare Me a Dime?”, and “Southern Railroad”.

“Elégie, Opus 24” by Gabriel Fauré

Performed by yours truly.

The Joke – Haydn
