Supper Tonight...

...featured sausages stuffed with pieces of apple and Gouda cheese. Mmmm!

Voice Lesson: The lesson went pretty well. we went through the lyrics of the first part of "Deh, vieni, non tardar," and my teacher recorded "Night and Day" by Cole Porter, for me to sing at the NATS, this March.

Even with the throat crud, I was able to hit a high B flat with a decently strong volume. It's an aria from Madama Butterfly called "Quanto cielo, quanto mar!" also known as the "Hummingbird Chorus" because the sopranos hum the B flat while someone else sings the lyrics. I was amazed that I could hit that note, with the way my throat felt--not painful; just coated with crud.

Writing: I was lazy, last night and wrote very little. I'm not feeling terribly enthusiastic about it tonight, either. I'm coming down with a cold, and the bed looks very tempting. I do want to write a little bit tonight, though. Heading off to do so now. I don't have a fever (yet), so I probably will go in to work tomorrow.

Current Mood: sicksick
Current Music: "Deh, vieni, non tardar" - Mozart

Re: Voice Lessons - Do you think your instructor is taking new students? I remember I emailed her a long while back but didn't hear from her - I assumed that I'd just written at a busy time, or something.

I hope your cold doesn't get worse! I got sneak-attacked by the flu on New Year's day and have missed two days of work. Wrap up and rest now!!

Hey, Brandie! I'll ask her. Frankie teaches lessons in half-hours, 3/4 hours, and full hours, and she offers lessons at a church on Holcombe (on Mondays and Tuesdays) as well as at her home, which is off of 43rd Street, just north of 610. She does offer Saturday times. I'll see if I can get hold of her.

At least one person at my office came down with the flue, and another co-worker came down with appendicities. She actually had her appendectomy at 1am on New Year's day!

I'd rather not get sick, but it might be inevitable. (g) I hope you're feeling better!
