My countdown to Christmas continues with some video of the Shoreline Ringers Handbell Choir, the group that Katherine the Great performs with. This footage was filmed at a benefit concert for a gentleman at our former church who was seriously injured in a car accident this year (he is doing well, by the way). The video contains three songs, the last of which is "Sleigh Ride" by Leroy Anderson. Enjoy!
Inspired by a little-known picture book from the pen of Bethany Tudor, this is a diary, of sorts, where I document some of my thoughts, activities, and ideas as I explore the challenges met by the characters in the story: hard work, the care and nurture of others, housekeeping skills, life changes, charity, community, and cooperation, among others. Like Samuel and Samantha, the ducks in the tale, I struggle and succeed, cope and celebrate, work and play, handling the tasks that come my way. I invite you to join me on my journey.
