I can't believe that it is December 22nd, but it is........I sure didn't get much written on the 20th did I?
There have been so many days when I sat down to write something on this blog, but as you can tell from the date of my last post......well, let's just say I have been inactive. I don't know why, but there are times when even though I have the urge to write, I do not have the energy, or I do not have any bright things to say.
Life goes on, and the days of December have passed quickly. Last minute felting, and church/church related activities become a bit of a blur. Our small but mighty choir has done a wonderful job of offering special Christmas music. God blesses us, as eight voices sing out with all the fervour of a 20 voice choir. It has been nice to get back to directing, as my talented assistant took over the piano, so that I could lead. It is most difficult to do both, and a really nice change. I think I may be a better director than piano/organ player.
It has been my pleasure to play for a few church services at our local assisted living home. The folks so enjoy the music and hymn singing, and the Pastor is wonderful.
Christmas shopping done. Presents wrapped (almost), tons and tons of baking done (Not), though some dear friends have dropped of some yummy goodies. It has been a little sad, as I miss my Sadie helping me get things done for Christmas. I had to do all the stuff alone instead of having Sadie following me around, supervising the wrapping, sniffing the presents and laying under the tree....and listening to me sound off or sing or just talk to her about what was going on in my mind.....she never judged. Strange, isn't it how a little dog can be so much a part of what you do.....
Well, enough of that......I haven't taken many pictures of late, either, but I will share what I have.
