Fall Chorus Retreat

We had learning and FUN at the Grand Rapids Women's Chorus fall retreat. We spent a lot of time beginning to learn the notes of our new music,

but we also did a little unplanned DANCING while our accompanist played "I Ain't Afraid" by Holly Near.

"I ain't afraid of your churches,

I ain't afraid of your temples,

I ain't afraid of your prayin'

I'm afraid of what you do in the name of your god."

Then we had a fabulous potluck with a table for each of the songs, and appropriate foods. My group had the Finnish table, so I brought Fruit Soup and Dilled Cucumbers. Now Charlie and I are going to have both for several days because there was so MUCH interesting food that a lot was left over.

Maybe tomorrow I'll get back to skinny triangles and finishing another border.



Fall colors are starting

Fruit soup GREAT with whipped cream

Lots of music in my head
