There was a hint of blue sky this morning...
...but it quickly shifted...
...over to a dark grey sky. Again. I haven't seen any snowflakes yet. Maybe it will miss us or stay warm enough to rain. Who knows?
I couldn't resist showing you some close-ups of the kalimba.
It amazes me how those beautiful sounds can come from...
...these thin metal tines held down onto a piece of wood. :)
And here's the super strong magnets on the bottom side of the box.
I have had a few people ask how Karma likes it. I have the kalimba right next to my chair and pick it up randomly to play for a few minutes. When Karma is up on the chair with me she immediately starts purring and rubs her head on the bottom of the box. Apparently she likes it, too. ;)
Since it has been so cold up here again, Karma is back to snoozing where it is warmer...
...in her cat bed--which I stuck under the end table.
Believe it or not the roofers were here pounding away overhead on Sunday morning!? I figured either they didn't know what day it was, finally decided they might want to get paid (the lady in the office told me they weren't getting paid until the job was finished), or there was a leak here on my end of the building. Not here, thank goodness. It was really strange to hear hammering on a Sunday, tho.
And on Saturday I got a knock on the door from a couple of Indian ladies I could barely understand wanting to give me Jesus fliers. That wasn't what I expected, either. LOL!
After the marathon printing day that went till 2am...the printer has decided not to work again. Also found that funny. ;)
BTW--I watched Burlesque and Hereafter and enjoyed both of them. Neither of them were like top of my list awesome, but they were both good. (I'd watch anything with Cher or Matt Damon--LOL!)
Tomorrow Caroline comes in the afternoon and Dagan and Leah come after work. Instead of doing Sacred Circle, Dagan's going to hook up the brand-new, fancy-schmancy printer and Leah is going to cut my hair. Going to be a busy day. I can hardly wait to show them all my new musical toy!! Maybe they'll want to try it? :)
Today--just washing clothes and puttering about.
A great week ahead, right? :)
