Three Day Weekends

I love 3 day weekends! Working for the feds I get today off for columbus day - you can't go wrong with that. It has been fantastic to putz around the house and garden. I finally turned under the veggie beds and tried to burn all the weeds. I say tried because it has been freezing and the frost makes this an almost impossible task.

Today is also Canadian Thanksgiving - so we'll feast tonight and celebrate. I made a new recipe for squash soup with buttercup squash from our garden. I am not a huge fan of squash but we'll try it out.

PS - I tuned my new guitar - it took me about 1 hour, but hey I am learning.

My New Guitar

So...something cool came in the mail today. Sometime last week I was ordering my bookclub book on amazon and started looking around. Holy mackrel (is that how you spell mackrel?) you can now buy so much on amazon. The last time I used amazon it was pretty much only books and music. So I saw this black 3/4 sized guitar and it just seemed like something I needed to check out. I have been thinking about trying to learn how to play some sort of musical instrument for quite a while now. I unwrapped it and its beautiful - shiny, black and easy to hold. So I think the next step will be to check out the library and see if I can find a book about how to teach myself guitar.
