Late start to the day. I stayed up far too late last night and slowly crawled out of bed about (unintelligible) o’clock. That’s one of the perks about working at home. It’s also one of the downfalls, because you have no real blood-pressuring schedule and therefore you tend to overwork to make up for lost […]

Well, over the holidays I took the chance and now I see that it wasn’t the best idea…. My stove was on fire this morning. Yeah. Fun times. Let me start at the beginning since I do so love to tell a good story. I’d baked an apple pie in the oven for Christmas dinner. […]

The Story of the Hallelujah Chorus

November 30, 2011

On Sunday during church, the bombastic strains of the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s Messiah kept running though my head. It’s such a glorious piece, one that makes me want to jump up and down with glee. :frolic: So I downloaded the song as my newest ringtone for my phone and have been having fun whenever […]
