Friday’s Favourites with Eden Hills

This week’s themes are:

1. Starts with a T.  I struggled with this one a bit, so it may be a little contrived.  Today is Remembrance Sunday and so there are lots of messages on social media.  I particularly liked this ‘Tweet’

This was accompanied by the words which were also used in today’s church service.

“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old. Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them.”

2. Week’s favourite.  Those of your you who have seen recent blog entries will know that we performed in a concert last night.  It was a lovely evening, and I do think we look smart!

3. The rule of thirds. I must admit I had to look up what this meant.  I think this photo almost follows the idea.

Please visit the Eden Hills blog and maybe join in next week?


Friday. Jobs and preparing for the weekend. Or ‘Judith the car starter’.

We have our concert tomorrow as mentioned before.

And so DD, K and her boyfriend R will be visiting which is really nice.  So I did the usual ironing plus preparing our concert clothes – formal white shirt, black suit and black bow tie for the men, and long black skirts and black plain tops for the women, and then tidied K’s room by putting away the ironing board and stuff.  Velvet saw this as a secret message!

I did tell him K was visiting but I don’t think he really understands, but something made him move into her room after ignoring it for weeks.

It could be that he is scared of the ironing board (who knows why).

R was going out to his CSG Choir at lunchtime but his car wouldn’t start.  It has been on the road since the drive cleaning on Tuesday.  Anyway he took me car, and I did the ‘Judith, miracle car starter’ act and then had to drive it around for 20 minutes to ensure the battery was OK.  I gave it a good ‘thrashing’ up and down a local duel-carriageway just in case!

Then a quiet afternoon of crochet for Christmas presents so I can’t add photos yet. 

I will have a think about Eden Hills Friday themes tomorrow and have some more pictures for you all.  Have a nice a Friday evening.

Monday – singing and baking

Tonight is the final rehearsal for our concert on Saturday with Sutton Choral Society, and it is my turn to bake a cake for the rehearsal. And here it is:

It is a lemon drizzle cake from the GBBO cook book.  I’ve made it a few times and it seems fairly reliable.

My mom gave me the book last Christmas and it is very good (except for my earlier chocolate shortbread).  

I also sang through all our pieces this afternoon so feel slightly calmer about the impending event!
