Very close

Monday the 21st is the date of my final practical exam. I've been very worried and stressed about it, but now I'm pretty confident. Monday night we had the dress rehearsal and last night was the last walk through. It didn't go very well yet, but that's why they were rehearsal. The teacher that guides me told me he was confident and he thought it was a good exam. My piano teacher told me she had never heard me play like I did in four years, and she had never expected me to come this far! Boy was I flattered... And I know I'll pass, otherwise my teacher would have told me to cancel the exam.
Even though I've had sleepless nights and worries, today was a stress free day. M and I worked in the garden. I planted tomatoes, peppers and zinnias that I had sown eight weeks ago. I sowed radishes, lettuce, carrots, beets, leeks and planted potatoes. I've noticed before that working in the garden soothes me. I think I'll be ok. It's only an exam, it's not the end of the world...
(And those of you that have been following me closely know that it's a big step for me to say this!)

Je hebt helemaal gelijk...

Werken in de tuin is trouwens heerlijk, en groente uit eigen tuin helemaal! Ik ga volgende week radijs en wortels zaaien :)

Maarre... heel veel succes met je examen, natuurlijk ga je slagen, want inderdaad, zo'n docent heeft echt wel door of je het kunt of niet! Dus slaap lekker de komende nachten :)

Good luck.
My zinnias didn't do to well only two have made to the stage that can be planted. I blame CS for over watering them. Never mind at least the sunflowers survived :-)
