I don’t like to wait. I would prefer to try and make something myself rather than order things online. Sometimes they don’t turn out just right, sometimes they do exactly what I want.

Here is my ukulele strap that I just finished.

Yes those are also homemade labels on the fret board so I can learn the notes. No I don’t care if you laugh at me, because so far I can slowly play “I see fire” from the hobbit, “Down on the corner”, “Pompeii” and “Take me to church”. Not too bad considering I’ve only had it since Christmas and never held one before.

Should Auld Acquaintance Be Forgot…

Happy New Year! I’m calling out to the universe to cut me a break. The last couple of years have held one miserable trial after another. I love a challenge, but let it be one that I’m anticipating. One that I’m yearning for. Not another road block.

We’ve spent the evening with good friends, good food, and good hopes.

Terry and Ethan bought me a Ukulele for Christmas. We only were able to pick it up on Tuesday. But after just a little bit of practice, I’ve managed to get out a simple melody. Unfortunately because I don’t have a paid subscription, I cannot post it in the blog.

Obviously this posted late. It was because of the media issue with the video.
