Christmas Eve

Merry Christmas to those who observe;  Season's Best to those who don't. 

I'll be singing at two Christmas Eve services (and rejoicing in the presence of a brass quartet--always a delight to have them with us) and then we'll come home and fall into bed.  I have to quit working on the book now, and work instead on the music we'll be singing, to make sure I really am confident on the various tricky bits.  One of the anthems is by Britten, which ensures tricky bits, but the others also have tricky bits. 

Meanwhile it has turned cold and wet.   Well, cold for us, that is.   It's supposed to "nearly-freeze" or  freeze tonight.   We have a fog/rain/mist mix at the moment, shifting between light rain (once it was sleet) and mist, mostly.
