{A new friend}

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you’ve probably noticed a new friend of mine hanging around.

Meet Stanley, the cello:

He and I are in the process of becoming a bit better acquainted.

To this day, I’m still not sure what exactly possessed me to add him to my collection of other instruments, but I’m so glad he is here. I decided while I was working the election polls last time that I wanted to spend my poll-working money on something interesting.

Stanley is pretty interesting, in my opinion anyway.

I love listening to the mellow sounds as they pour off the strings….


The self-timer went off before I was ready, but the sun was so interesting behind the cello that I decided to keep the picture. :)

I can’t wait to learn to read the actual cello sheet music! I’m playing some by ear right now, but my cello book is supposed to be here any day. It’s thrilling to have a dream come true! Playing cello has been something I have wanted to try for a very long time. I’m so thankful that the Lord allowed me the opportunity to acquire one. :)
