I have been cleaning like a maniac
during the past four days.

Moving lots of boxes of books
and equipment.

All very heavy.

Good workout,
but I have had enough for now.

Am leaving for northern California tomorrow.

Hope to get to sit up
at one of my favorite quiet spots
on Saturday and Sunday afternoons,
with any luck.

Visitors are, of course, welcome.

In the meantime,
I decided to work a little bit more
on choral compositions.

So at 4 a.m. on 1-30-13
I wrote the song entitled 013013a,
and at 2 a.m. this morning on 1-31-13
I wrote the second song entitled 013113a.

I then combined the two together,
using the second of the two
as the introduction to the first of the two,
which is why the dates appear reversed.

I expect to get back
at the beginning of next week
and hope to be able to hit the ground running.

I have not forgotten my promise
to post photos of clean studio.

Something you just will not see very often.

I hope to get around to that
next week, also.

The weather has been beautiful here
during the past three days.

We keep switching back and forth
between winter and spring.

Do not plant your tomatoes just yet.

They will all be killed in one night
sometime in late February
or early March.

A lesson I have had to "learn" several times
(although I just go ahead and plant anyway
and hope for the best = really dumb!)

In the meantime,
may God bless everyone abundantly.

w/love to all
