    My Komplete Kontrol S49 mkII special edition blackout keyboard controller is arriving a day early. It was scheduled to be here Wednesday but it will be here tomorrow. :)

    I've been itching to write again.

    I ran into 2 girls I counseled years ago, and both of them are doing great! They were very misunderstood by their classmates at the time, but very creative, and it's been deeply fulfilling to see them making gigantic strides as independent artists, and flourishing in every way!

    Two (different, completely unrelated) people told me that I looked young and fit (in spite of my age 58)! Doing some exercises every day pays, I guess.;)

    The breeze. It's not too cold and it keeps those horrible face- assaulting bugs off me so I can enjoy the outdoors.

    My blog has generated its first revenue. One American cent, $0.01, 1% of dollar 1.

    Maybe crack open the Nosecco tonight.

    I just checked my account with a company that creates and sells virtual instruments and I can get several products that are $99 and up for $20 each! Whoa!

    Something to keep in mind when I next get paid.

    They have an amazing new virtual guitar and bass system that would fit perfectly with the type of music I'm creating.

    Waiting for the Pentatonix concert to start. We’re in a box SiL got for us. It’s fancy :adore: separate bathroom which is great when you’re a middle aged woman lol.

    I hadn't heard Pentatonix until recently. They're really good!
