Of Cellos and Dragonfruit....
Spencer got his cello today! They aren't actually using the bow yet, but he did try it out. He got a cool back-pack style carrying case to get it to and fro.
While Spencer had his lesson, I helped Grant practice his piano. All the public piano practice rooms were busy (at 5 pm...don't these people have something better to do?!). So we trolled around Squires and found an upright piano in the "green room" off of the main Commonwealth Ballroom stage. So we got comfortable there and got to work!
I couldn't resist picking up this dragonfruit from the store today. The color and shape are very distinctive and more flower-like than fruit-like. The inside is white with what looks like poppyseeds. The flavor is very mild - Robert thought it would go well with vanilla ice cream or yogurt.
