Our concert went very well. I managed to make it through all of our songs. And I got to have a lot of bonding time with my friend Julie all weekend so it was good to catch up. (Yes we are cheesy and made someone take our picture in the choir loft.) (not once but twice because the first set of pictures wasn't very flattering to either of us) (ha!)
My entire weekend has been taken up by a choir workshop. Last night from 7 - 9:30 and all day today - I attended a choir workshop at my church. It was for our church and local choir members as well. Dr. Gary Bonner who is the Dean of Music at California Baptist University has led it. He is amazing.
I was kind of dreading it because I just hated to waste my whole weekend at the workshop - but it really has been great and I have learned a lot. Most of the people in our choir majored in music and are so good and I have NO music background so it is a struggle for me to sight read and find the right notes sometimes. But I feel like I've gotten a whole lot better. We have learned 15 new songs and in an hour - I'm going back to church and we are doing a concert.
I thought I'd share these little glass jars that I got recently to go on my kitchen counter. I really like them. I love the look of these apothecary glass jars.
