Happymaking Things

Pennywhistle lesson videos via YouTube. I’ve been using the Clark Pennywhistle book and CD to learn, but I wish I’d found these video lessons, offered for free by a Jesuit priest, a long time ago. It’s much easier to understand the ornamentation techniques when you can see them.

Scrivener. How is it possible none of my writer friends clued me into this sooner?

Listography, which is, at last, the internet notebook I’ve been looking for. The format just works for me.

Sam’s French toast recipe.

Kristen’s joy.

This incredible guitar arrangement of the Lyke Wake Dirge (a very old song, and “happy” is not the right word for it—moving, stirring, haunting—those are better).

    Thanks for the pennywhistle link. I was rereading the Charlotte Mason Companion a couple of weeks and she mentioned it. I’m intrigued. I think I need a video of you playing. 😉

    Ha! Maybe in a year, when (if) I can play without squeaking.

    A friend’s husband recently recommended Scrivener to me but I haven’t tried it out. Obviously you’re enjoying it?

    Wow just spent far too long looking at your Listography page. I like that format. So visual! Wondering if I really need it though.
