Yay, rain!

Tropical Storm Nicole's leftovers hit my area yesterday. We've needed rain so badly here! It's mostly been a nice gentle rain for a couple of days, but now we're getting the big stuff. No flooding here, thank goodness.

I have a long weekend ahead of me. First, I'm baking cookies for the grand opening of a new library branch (almost in my neighborhood!), then it's off to Katie's to watch the pets. Henry is sick. :( Poor old dog. And Giada is getting huge! I hope she doesn't knock me on the ground.
Choir Librarian has quit. Not choir, but the librarian's job. Guess who's doing it now? :) :) Me! I've wanted to do it for years, but ex-Choir Librarian just pushed her way in. I actually like filing away music. I've spent hours at church helping Katie with the kids' and bells stuff.

Choir director apologized for his outburst last week. Practices have been going great. We're getting through our music ahead of time for a change. Our Christmas pieces are arriving. The big carol service piece is going to be awesome. It includes one of my favorite carols as an anthem: Bring a Torch, Jeanette, Isabella. All the music is beautifully arranged, with parts for the kids, bells, and brass. Unfortunately, I won't be able to play with the bell choir.

I've heard many great arrangements of "Bring a Torch..." I've soloed it on flute, but our choir never touched it, so I'm officially envious! ;^) It's such a great piece.

There isn't a way to record it, is there? :^)

We'll probably record the carol service. We do every year.

Is it posted somewhere? I'd love to hear it. :^)

If I can borrow my director's CD, I could probably share that. We won't be as good as the professionals, though! Somewhere there are recordings of past services.
