As I've already mentioned, the second half of February snuck up on me and knocked me down pretty hard... out the window went all the good habits I'd been cultivating all January and suddenly it was March and I had no idea where the time had gone!  So now I'm trying to pick up the pieces again and get back on track for the rest of spring.

One thing that fell by the wayside pretty badly was my piano tuning studies.  While my work schedule was consistent, I'd been trying to study a little bit every weekday morning, but when a few people went on vacation that was all turned on its head.  As things settle back down, I need to figure out where to fit study time into my day.

Today's outfit is a little more casual than some, since I was feeling sleep -deprived and beginning to catch a cold on Sunday morning.  So instead of dressing up to the nines I decided to go for a slightly more subtle collegiate-inspired look for yet another cold winter morning.
