Spring is doing its usual weird number. This past week alone, we've had rain, very thick and messy snow, and 70s shorts-and-sunshine temperatures. I don't know whether to go out and plant, or shovel the sidewalk.
Finally starting to feel a little better...but I get so tired quickly. Sang in choir for Palm Sunday -- sang on Worship Team -- fell into bed exhausted, for a nap. Did some chores, then went to American Sniper. An amazing, amazing movie.
This week is bound to be just as strange -- not just the weather, but most probably two choir practices, plus Worship Team and Good Friday. Which means going out on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday to sing...when I've currently got about an 8-note range. (Sigh.) Meanwhile:
