Day 15: Beer and Bongo Drums

Chillin’ and Grillin’

Okay, its Friday! Woot! Time to think about relaxing and having some fun. Sometimes for me that means grilling some brats, having a beer and playing my Bongo Drums. The picture is really just for my personal enjoyment!

I am not a big drinker, but something about playing on my drums just screams at me to grab a beer and enjoy the beat!

So I have been learning to play both the piano and the bongo drums for a couple of years now, and I love them both. When I tell people about the piano they are not surprised, but when I say I am learning Bongo Drums, well that causes them to say, “really?!” I guess I look like a straight laced suburban house wife. There are many layers to all that is me, and I Hate boxes, at least being put into one.

So, I drink a beer every once in a while, play my drums, and just chill out. This week has been full of both exhilaration and stress. My piano just doesn’t release that stress like beating on those drums do. So tonight, chillin’ in my backyard, my neighbors will get a little serenade. They will get to smell some awesome brats on the grill, hear my play my drums and laugh out loud as I feel the stress pour out of me and I let go of all the weird and wonderful things that happened to me this week!
