Once again, Sunday turns out to be our busiest day. With Christmas coming up, it's time to put together a stake choir! Since our friend Rose moved to another city, there's a new stake music director, and she's taken it upon herself to direct the choir, which is great, because now Athena gets to sing! (Choir directors aren't supposed to sing during the performance.) Unfortunately, we're not exactly enamored with the arrangements of the songs we'll be singing. But that's okay, because we have total control not only over our ward choir's sacrament meeting performance, but also over all the musical entertainment to be provided at our ward Christmas party! (Oh, and the Primary's Christmas performance, too, come to think of it.) Overwhelming? You bet it is!
But on the other hand, it's kind of fun to look at Christmas songs and decide what would be good for everything. I pretty much decided (even though Athena's the one in charge) that the ward choir will sing "Far, Far Away on Judea's Plains", and I'm super excited about it. But we're not sure if the choir can learn it, so we might have to nix that idea. We shall see.
Other than that, there hasn't been a whole lot of deciding on anything, because we only just got the assignment last week while we were in the middle of finishing Noragami 11, and then we were binge watching the end of Seven Deadly Sins, and then there was yesterday, and today! we decided we really did need to take a day off, because we're starting to feel under the weather. That, and we're tired of everything. ...Which makes this the perfect time to get another one of those little projects that pops up from time to time. It's on the bigger side of the little projects, but we're still insisting on doing it tomorrow, because we are BUSY taking a day off.
Oh, but speaking of The Seven Deadly Sins, our very brief spoiler-free review is that it's pretty great all the way through! The ending isn't the ending ending, but it still leaves off in a satisfying place. And all the characters are so wonderful, and so caring about each other. That's the great thing about shonen anime--friendship is usually one of the central themes. And it's a pretty great one.
But anyway, we have more day-offing to do. ...After we finally get back to working out.
Today I'm thankful for Christmas music, getting to take a day off, getting to watch all of The Seven Deadly Sins, getting to try some "duet bites" (little bite-sized brownie/madeleine hybrids), and being back at the beginning of our workout program so the idea of getting back to it after slacking off for almost a week isn't quite so intimidating.
