April Wrap Up!

Quickie post! Another month come and gone.  Forward into spring now – woo hoo!

May is going to be a busy month.

Here were my goals for April:

1. 250 miles on the bike.  I didn’t quite make it.  Weather didn’t cooperate as fully as I would have liked, but I did get 170 miles in.

2.  Do a month of body weight only exercises.  I was somewhat lame about this and only posted 1 of the routines.

3.  Guitar video.  I posted one yesterday and as a bonus for lucky listeners, a second one below!

4.  Clean out the pantry.  I did clear out some old spices, but I think we need to do a “use stuff up in the pantry” month.

5. Try 2 new veggies.  I did one – the rutabaga.  Turns out this time of year there aren’t a lot of new types of produce in the market.   I could have done something like orange cauliflower, but that would have been pretty lame of me.  😀

So, yesterday I posted a video and here is the other one.  Waltz in E by Carulli

I like yesterday’s recording better, but this is a fun tune.  Next videos will be even better in the future!

Back with May goals tomorrow.

    At least you make goals and work on them! That’s a lot of miles for as cold as your April was!

    I watched both guitar videos and enjoyed them both. I have a question. I used to be a cello player. Oh, and I played bass for a while too. (just so you know I’d played a stringed instrument.) But when I tried to learn to play the guitar, it just seemed impossible. My fingers were too short. You don’t look like you have a problem at all. Maybe your fingers are longer than mine. I was just wondering if you have a different size guitar, or if it is hard for you and you make it look effortless!

      It could be the guitar you tried. There are a lot of different size necks. Mine is a fairly flat-backed neck, so my fingers have more room to move around than if it was more rounded. Does that make sense? I do think that classical guitars tend to be a bit smaller than acoustic as well. My hand cramps sometimes when I have to do a lot of stretching.

    The guitar video was wonderful! Very smooth chord changes. I recently bought a new guitar (my old one went boing, like yours did) and am practicing again. I’ve got a long way to go–thanks for the inspiration!

    Oh how I love acoustic classic guitar…swoon!! Compile a CD for me, would you? TIA 🙂

    My goal was to stay at or under budget in April. Just crunched the numbers. Let’s just say that I didn’t reach that goal. By a lot. I think I need to go with your idea and try a new veggie instead this month.
