My piano is back home! The living room is a little cramped, and I'm going to have to move some things around so it all fits, but I don't care. Before I moved from my old house, I didn't play the piano often, but when I did, it was often because I was troubled - the music soothes me. I'm glad to have it here - this house is starting to feel like home.
I absolutely LOVE late October weather in Kansas City. I love the way the light shines through the trees in the late evenings, highlighting the fall colors in gold. I love the turn from the heat and humidity of summer to the light jacket temps of autumn.
These late few mornings have been cloudy and dark. I've been back over a year now, and must admit I am still downright whiny when I have to get out of bed before the sun comes up. I think I should get rain days at work. I can hear the radio announcement now: "Because the rain pattering softly on the roof in the pre-dawn darkness makes it well-nigh impossible to pry oneself out of bed, work and school will be starting one hour late this morning."
Wouldn't it be nice?
