MAKE IT A GREAT DAY: Monday morning

I am loving these nights of complete sleep and fewer trips to the bathroom throughout the night. I sleep soundly and feel refreshed. The best part is that I am not using any sleep aids.

It’s 43 degrees and we’re expected to climb up to 67 degrees. The remainder of the week will be in the upper 60s, even climbing to the mid-70s by Wednesday and Thursday before falling back to 57 degrees on Friday and Saturday.

Sunday’s teaching kicked the week off with some fine work by all the students. Several students had some great successes with marching band contests, auditions and making callbacks, and productions. I love hearing students reclaim their moments and what they learned from these moments.

I am at The Park for a half shift and shall return home to teach until late. Tuesday is a repeat of Monday. I am glad I will be at The Park tomorrow so I can share a few moments with my friend, Chuck Johnson before he moves out to his volunteer station in the Deeds’ Barn replica.

I am now on a music kick of listening to a number of different arrangements of Aerosmith’s “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing.” A student was working on the solo for an ensemble audition and though I have heard the song many times, it finally grabbed me.

And, now it is off to shower, dress, and prep for The Park.

Make it a great day!
