Yamaha g231

Last week I picked up a Crosley record player and I am in love! I love the sound of vinyl records. I grew up on them. I remember my dad turning out the lights in the living room at the end of the day and turning on some accent lighting. He would put on a record- usually  Marty Robbins- and we would sit and listen for what seemed like hours. I have such a deep appreciation for music and it is such a huge part of my life. I have been to the thrift on the hunt for Christmas albums, numerous times, since I bought my new player, and I have scored some amazing music! Some of my records are warped and they all need a good cleaning so I need to doctor them up a bit, but so far they have been so much fun to sit and listen to. It is totally not too early for Christmas music! Speaking of music- this month marks my 25th wedding anniversary. I can hardly believe my husband and I have been married that long. For our anniversary we built our sofa table AND I got a new/old classical guitar. I have been looking for a vintage Yamaha g235 classical for a while now. I wasn't able to find one but I did find a g231 I just had to have. I got it yesterday and I have not wanted to put it down. It sounds amazing!! And looking at it you would never guess that it is between 32-35 years old. I ordered some new guitar books for Christmas and have been picking some new songs for the holidays. My hubby keeps joking that I need to either get a job or volunteer somewhere so I have something to do (besides shop for guitars and crafts) during the day when the kids are at school. I am perfectly content to stay home,  play the guitar and create! My home is my safe haven from the world. Why would I want to leave it? Okay, it did get me thinking that maybe I should volunteer at the senior center or something, so I am checking into it. We shall see what happens.
