Deconstructing Grandma's Old Piano (April 20 2015)[i]

Waking up around 11:45 a.m.

Steel Cut Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Black Maca Powder, Maple Syrup, Chia Seeds, Strawberries, and Almond Milk. Coffee with Cream and Honey.

Teaching my second lesson to one of my favorite students, Kristian. The more I learn about this kid the more he resembles me as a child – collecting everything imaginable, including fruit stickers, which I still collect now as an adult.

Transporting my first load of stuff from the storage unit into the new storage space.

Scrambled Eggs with homemade Salsa (by Ana). Blue Corn Sesame Chips. Toast with Non-Dairy Cream Cheese and Strawberry Jam. Pineapple with Greek Yogurt.

Teaching a lesson at Music Makers.

I was supposed to work a China Wok shift but as soon as I walk into the restaurant I see how slow it is. I request to go home and stay on call.

Back home. Ana is being a busy little bee today. It's her day off and she's got a list of things she's trying to accomplish like hand washing her car, errands, and re-potting a blueberry bush and other plants she got from the store. Meanwhile, I work on my own list of things to accomplish like building a piano footrest out of encyclopedia books for my students, storage unit stuff, and other various repairs.

I head back to the storage unit to transport a second load of stuff. Ana lends a hand at bringing everything into the new space.

Ominous Anamous (April 20 2015)

Lentils with Carrots, Asparagus, and Quinoa.

Tearing my hair out trying to put together this old bookshelf from the Norfolk public library.

Sleep 4 a.m.
