It was really chilly here today. We went out and did some errands in the afternoon and we noticed that several ponds were iced over already. Wow, I hope we get some snow before the freeze goes too deep into the ground.
The boys and I played Up Words today. It's kind of like scrabble, except the board is smaller and you can cover old letters and create new words. I discovered that they knew how to challenge and how to look up my more creative words. It's a harder concept than it sounds and I was pleased that the boys lasted as long as they did. I got down to one tile at the end, the letter Z, Ian was holding 3 N's and Spencer was stuck with the X and few other bad tiles. It was fun to watch them plot out their next move only to have someone steal the spot, oh the groans.
Holly had a video series that she needed to watch tonight so the boys and messed around. We started out with the guitars. My guitar is an acoustic that has a nice wide neck to make it easier for a guy with fat fingers. Ian has an electric guitar and so he brought that up. Then Ian and I taught ourselves the main riff, or lead guitar part, for Smoke on the Water. Pretty easy really, but it was lots of fun. Once I had it down, Ian wanted to have me play it on the electric and so once I did he went crazy with the camera, here are three shots that seemed pretty good. A "Guitar Hero", I am not.
Have a great day!
