Day Two Hundred Forty Six (Year Eight)

Today was a long day at work that didn't leave a whole lot of time in the studio.

It left me time for a bit of studying and a bit of reading, though, and so I took that for what it was worth.  Hopefully tomorrow night and the rest of the week will be better.

Day Two Hundred Forty Five (Year Eight)

Feeling okay today.  I didn't have a whole lot of time to spend in the studio, but I was able to put something together for one of the kids at church who wants to learn to play.

What I'm really looking forward to this week is that the long weekend coming up will give me a bit more time to spend in the studio.

I did okay this weekend, but didn't get as much done as I hoped to.

Day Two Hundred Forty Four (Year Eight)

Today was a better day than the last few.  I was actually able to get in a bit of studio time tonight (wedged in between getting the laundry/storage room on the road to organized), and I can't even tell you how good it felt to have a guitar back in my hands again. 

I got some playing in, but didn't have a whole lot of time to devote to working on songs.  I'm hopeful that I'll be able to get to that tomorrow night.

A good day.  Better than I had been expecting.

Day Two Hundred Forty Three (Year Eight)

Today was a weird day. I was thinking, going into it, that a productive day where I was able to get in some good studio time was ahead of me. In reality, however, it was a day where I struggled to get a whole lot done.

In the end, about the only good thing to come out of the day, musically anyway, was the fact that one of the two back issues of GT came in the mail today.

Day Two Hundred Forty Two (Year Eight)

Today was a quiet day for me, music-wise, but a good day for prepping things heading into the weekend.  I'm very much looking forward to the chance to spend a bit of time in the studio working on some of the things that got started in February.  The last three weeks haven't been so good for working on songs, but for my sense of mental health and well being that needs to change.

Practicing and writing is my hopeful focus for the weekend, in and among other things.

Day Two Hundred Forty One (Year Eight)

Holy shit.  I knew it had been a good number of days since I'd posted, but I didn't think for a second that it had been NINE of them... the last week and a half has been a blur, so let me see if I can catch myself up:

1.  It was spring break week last week, so in theory I should have been able to get a lot of good work in, but there was family here all week long, and staying with us.  It was great to see them all, but it didn't leave an awful lot of time for hiding away in the studio.

2.  My Dad and my Brother were here at the end of that time, though, and we got a chance to talk through a bit of the plan for the hootenanny that Dad wants to throw this summer, so that was good.

3.  New Decemberists record came in the mail today.  I'm listening now, but am hoping to spend a lot more time with it over the weekend.

I've felt disconnected and off for great parts of the last week, even with people here.  It's no wonder, considering I haven't posted here.  It rea…

Day Two Hundred Thirty Two (Year Eight)

Today was quiet again.  Good, but quiet.

I found a few minutes here and there to fit in some playing, and did some studying for a little while, but mostly I (again) just got ready for company to be here.

Still, there were moments of music that were good.  I'll take a few more tomorrow.
