Lots of sewing. Well, plotting to sew. That means
scratching my head. How do I make the strap on the *left* as exactly as long as the strap on the *right*, and shorten the right to the left’s precise length? I just can’t wrap my puny brain around it.
And another project for Katya:
Blue buttons for Katya. You might see the orange ones later. :)
Lots of reading. What you see below is my school book shelf. May I recommend “The Violinist’s Thumb” by Sam Kean? In 358 pages– not counting acknowledgements and notes– I learned more about DNA and genetics than if I had read my science unit on that subject 358 times.
Lots of violin practice. *Lots* of violin practice.
Well, no, it’s not quite *that* bad. This is an old picture from two years ago. But sometimes it gets pretty close.
And baking cupcakes. Look at Katya so politely requesting a cupcake. These were pumpkin spice, with orange frosting. I had to make my own pumpkin-pie spice, and in the process learned that 1 tsp fresh, organic cloves is equal to about 4TB of the previous, old, non-organic cloves.
If you wish to see how I adapted the recipe, check out Katya’s Blog.
