The music that you hear is the song that Abbi is working on right now. I worked on it when I was 17 or so and had taken piano lessons for about 10 years. Honestly, I think she knows it better right now than I ever did.
It's been chilly here the last couple of days, as I write this it still hasn't gotten above 20 F, and it's 10:00 a.m. That's cold for Georgia! So as we stay inside we've been enjoying some nice inside cozy activities.
Abbi's been working on the piano, working out, baking wonderful cookies and watching Buffy and Angel.
Alec's been playing Persona 3, drumming every day and still enjoying raids with his guild on WoW.
Kyra's been leveling her druid on WoW, she's up to level 50 now! She loves talking with friends over the computer and watching Buffy and Angel.
Thank you Kimi who borrowed us the whole Angel series, we can watch to our hearts desire :)
