Piano stuff and salty noodles

Thank you thank you for all your sleepy thoughts- Mimi slept well Wednesday night.  (Last night she got up 3 times and partied from 12:30-2:30.  But I'm counting my blessings for a good Wednesday night.)  Hopefully she'll get back on schedule soon.

We had our recital last night.  I never sat down and counted, but I'm pretty sure we had over 40 people here.  14 students playing.  It was phenomenal- I've never been more proud of my kids.  I've taught some of them for 8 years.  If this doesn't sound weird, it is so wonderful to know that I'm able to teach well enough to pass on this beautiful gift of music.  I'm so grateful.  Every student was great.  The cookies were delicious.  I haven't dared go downstairs to the playroom yet to see what fun was had down there- my husband gravely advised against it last night.  In fact, as soon as the girls were tucked in he pretty  much threw me into bed with a heat pad.  Isn't he lovely?  He's such an excellent man.

We had a late breakfast today of pad see ew- very delicious, I heartily recommend it.  Salty noodles are just what we needed to contrast the pile of goodies in the kitchen.  I used cellophane noodles, broccoli, celery, and lots of tofu.

I have a question for you: if these wonderful blogs are places to talk about what we make and craft, what do we do if we make something other than clothes or dolls?  I've been having the "recording itch" lately, and was wondering if anyone would be interested in seeing what I'm working on?  If there's any interest I could record some Christmas music.  Maybe just accompaniment so you can sing with your family?  Or with vocals?  Hubby and I have a few songs we've been working on as well that I hope to record over the holidays- did I mention we have a pretty good recording studio set up in our basement?  I love my husband :)

Hey there, though I'd pop over and say hello.

First of all, Mimi was up form 12:30 to 2:30? Yikes! Baby girl, get back to sleep so your Mama gets some rest! Ok!?

I'd LOVE to see some piano music! I'm always on the lookout for printable music :)

Okay, I'm curious to hear stuff you've recorded, and I'm a sucker for Christmas music.
The noodles look very yummy.

Thanks for stopping by. I have a recording of a friend's harp music, and another CD of a friend singing. I play the hammered dulcimer and my FIL wants a recording. I think doing some musical recording would be fantasic...your pad see ew sounds very delicious......

Alexandra said...

I am glad you are getting some sleep now. :)

Please do share your music...I would really like to hear it.

Those noodles look great. I am not craving anything sweet or typical breakfast foods in the mornings lately.

Hi there!
I wonder if you received the xmas Hare already?

One of the things that I really want, and haven't found anywhere yet, is a good recording of hymns. I want something that is simple, tasteful, includes all the verses, and sung by someone with a clear voice that is easy to sing along with.

And now that I've heard your Christmas music, I'm wishing that you would do it, because I would buy it!
