A friend of mine had a minor “accident” with a Microplane grater (haven’t we all) to the point she had to go to the emergency room. In all seriousness (and a little humor), I gift-mailed her this Microplane cut-protection glove. I’ve had one for years after learning my own lesson. You only need one to protect those precious piano hands!

Another learn to play piano all-by-myself app is here. Have you heard of Skoove Piano? Not the type of app we as teachers need but it’s always nice to know what’s out there!
My soul had been feeling just a bit tuckered lately so Tsh Okenreider’s post On Decision Fatigue felt comforting and The Minimalist’s Helpful Guide to Becoming Unbusy useful.

Music Moves for Piano has a new website and it looks great! Congratulations to Marilyn Lowe.
Included in our meals this week was Nom Nom Paleo’s delicious Wonton Meatballs, and Winning Deviled Ham Salad. I prefer eating ham salad with hearty crackers rather than in sandwich form. The maple syrup and sriracha make this recipe unique.
A little treat was found in Diary -Free Fudge Pops using these awesome Tovolo Ice Pop Molds. I was considering more of a round mold but I thought that might be harder to eat. Plus, the fact that you can pull them out of the freezer individually made them my winner.
