Howdy. We've moved from Cayce, but St. Elizabeth of South Rose Hill or Lizette de Waccamaw de Sud just don't do it for me.

Musical, busy week

Saturday & Sunday: In NC -- rehearsal for and singing the Ceremony of Carols.

Tuesday: Ben Lippen Elementary School Christmas pageant at CIU (Niece S2D3, now age 6 1/2 sang in the 1st grade choir--and did a nice job!). Went with Mom, who reminded me of so much that Dad did out at CIU--she pointed out trees he'd planted, the sound both where he'd done recordings of chapel services, etc. (Odd note on the pageant: when Mary, Joseph and the two-child-donkey came out, I found myself disappointed that Mary was not in blue. I also noticed when "Mary" needed to get back up onto the stage, she dropped the Baby Jesus she was holding--oops!)

Wednesday: With Izzy to Vigil Mass for the Immaculate Conception @ St. Joe's, enjoyed hearing Carl cantor. Dinner afterwards at Baan Sawan--is there any better food in Columbia?

Thursday: Attended a Christmas Concert of the Palmetto Master Singers at the Koger Center. They did three Marian pieces, plus the Adoro Te Devote (sp?) before going into the "Grandma got run over by a reindeer" pops part of the performance. I went with a friend from high school who has moved back to SC--her Dad is in the Singers.

After the concert, I was able to get to the Chapel for the end of Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament on the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception. We sang accapella Latin. Very moving after prayer.

Saturday: After practice with Doc, we'll be going to 1st Babdis' to see yet another niece (B3D2, on the left, who will be 7 in 10 days from today) in the annual Christmas extravaganza.

Sunday: Back to singing with Doc. Looking forward to it, and to what should be a quiet week next week. Maybe I'll get some Christmas cards mailed before the price of stamps goes up...Maybe I'll even get a chance to spend some time with Izzy, now that his evenng class has ended for Christmas Break. He'd say something like "Yeah, right..." about now.
