I got out my Saxophone today. I used to play the sax. In fact, there was a time when I wanted to be a professional jazz musician. That lasted until I realized I have no talent. I haven't played in about 6 years, until today that is. I was listening to the Mingus Big Band, and had a strong urge to play along. I got out my sax, and was pleasantly surprised that I had a good reed. I was shocked when I was able to play immediately. In fact, my low range sounds better than ever. The higher stuff is horribly sharp. Still, I was able to play "Self Portrait in Three Colors" which is one of my favorite songs. I am definitely going to be picking up some more Mingus today.
I don't understand the cowwqas thing, but I feel like I should participate.
I'm cooking for a small dinner part today. Butternut Squash Bisque, Rosemary Foccacia and a Salad with a wonderful dressing is on the menu. I really hope I can find butternut squash or at least a pumpkin or two. Dessert is Creme Brulee.
I've been incredibly productive today, so I'm heading to the store. I don't have a car, so I hope I can carry everything on my list (including a 24pack of pop and 3 squashes) Then I'm going to make the creme brulee. I'll probably work for a few more hours after that.
Running update, My speed is up .2mph and I'm still doing well. My 10 miler last weeks was a breeze. We'll see how it goes in two weeks with the increased speed. I also think I'm running a 25k in Grand Rapids, MI in may.
That is all
