A lone bell pealed 12 times, and my Choir for Ladies of a Certain Age
processed into the venerable old church ...
Last night we sang at the lovely Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols service.
Of course, not dressed like this.
In 100 degree heat, we wore cool white shirts and a bit of Christmas bling.
But the music was beautiful as always, and I loved every minute.
Nothing brings the message of Christmas to me more than singing the old, and some new, carols.
My favourites: The traditional Coventry Carol,
and John Rutter's Christmas Lullaby.
Wonderful to sing!
It was our 41st Wedding Anniversary last week.
Mr C bought me a mini white rose bush:
It will always be a Christmas rose to me.
It fits well beside the miniature gardenias and an iceberg rose bush.
I hope your rundown to Christmas is going well -
are you enjoying the fun?
I'm off to do a bit of pantry stocking now.
Have a great week..
