My fingers are killing me right now as I type this…last week I decided I wanted to get back into playing the guitar (I started learning when I was seven but after a couple years I gave it up), and getting my fingers used to the strings again is not the most pleasant experience. Right now I’m working on learning fingerstyle – I learned basic picking when I was younger, but I never took it far at all. I want to learn I See Fire by Ed Sheeran…I found this awesome tutorial and was just sitting there wishing I could play that well! It’s fun, though, and I’m enjoying getting back into music.
I’m also trying to learn how to do latte art. Have any of you ever tried this? My family and I are admittedly coffee snobs (we both roast our own beans and have a pretty sweet espresso machine) but none of us have really tried to learn latte art. So far I’ve succeeded in getting the right texture of milk, but I haven’t gotten the hang of pouring/shaking it yet. The photo below is the best I’ve done so far (although I made a couple cups of coffee today and failed with every single one of them. =P)
