Today I...April 2nd

Today I... sharing this video of an incredibly talented castanet player with you. I got this video through the Facebook news feed of a friend of mine and when I began watching it and saw this lady come out I was a bit confused as to why she was there. I could tall by looking at her that she was not there to sing (her posture was all wrong for it), but was blown away the minute she raised those castanets up! Admit that that is not what you expect to see a lady in a fancy dress up on stage in a concert hall to play! The harp, violin, cello, piano, flute, sure. But castanets? Yeah, my jaw dropped :o) thanking you for your kind, encouraging comments following my post yesterday. Thank you ladies, you are marvelous and made me feel so much better knowing that I am not the only one who has trouble not letting my emotions get the best of me sometimes.

...did my laundry, just like every weekend.

...went to the mall at the end of the street next to my building to get fish food...and ended up walking out of the store with a live aquarium plant and four Neon Tetras to add to my aquarium. I have always wanted Neon Tetras and tried keeping some in my tank a few years ago, but unfortunately they died. They are more delicate than some other small tropical fish, so my failure at keeping them alive is not too surprising, but I am hoping that since my tank is more stable now than it was back then, I will have better luck this time. I'll keep you posted!

...went to return a movie I borrowed last week from my local video store, only to find it closed for good. I'll have to run the DVD down to their other location tomorrow. It's no big deal, it's not very far from my place only a ten minute walk whereas the location that closed down was about five minutes away. how mild it was today, it made it up to 11 degrees!!! For Montrealers in April, that's getting pretty darn close to balmy :o)


  1. Happy April
    hope the ocming of spring brings lots of sunshine for you to help heal those days when things do not go quite right
