This 'n' That

  • I'm trying to cut down on my coffee consumption, mostly because I'm not sure it does anything good for the way that I FEEL. I don't drink very much of it anyway, and am pretty convinced that what I'm attached to is a warm drink first thing in the morning, more than I am to the coffee itself. Trying tea for a while...
  • Great last concert of the season on Saturday night for Chamber Choir. The rehearsal process for this concert was sometimes frustrating because of some attendance inconsistencies, and because we were all tired after the big Bach and Handel concert in February. But it all came together eventually and was a very successful offering, in the end. Wonderful comments from the audience afterwards! That's one choir down for the summer, two more to go!
  • Yesterday, WH and I sang in the choir for the Ordination and Installation of our diocese's new bishop. It was a really lovely service and extremely well-attended (about 800, I think?), but by the time we were finished (almost three hours after the service began), we were exhausted. We hit the local BPs on the way home for a dinner and beer (Rickards White - highly recommend it!), and then crashed on the couch to watch the end of the hockey game and The Simpsons.
  • Because of all of the various kinds of excitement this weekend, I reeeeally wish I had one more weekend day to actually rest and get ready for the week. But I don't... sigh. And this week is going to be a doozy.

What's up for you this week?

it was, indeed, a very long day!
so glad you were able to "crash" at the end of it in such a satisfactory way.

It's the last week of confirmation here! Some long days upcoming, but also a time of relaxation after Sunday...

Good luck on the coffee withdrawal. I switched from coffee to tea and at first it didn't feel like it had enough zing to it, but now I'm content with tea. If you ever get a chance, try Murchies ... they're the BESTEST. Even my sister loves their tea. It's a local company from the city my hubby grew up in.
