December.......................

First day of every month, everybody greets each other by saying 'Kalomeena' (Good Month)
The temperature has dropped, it still feels warm at mid day but as soon as the clouds come over, it's rather chilly. Dry though. Geoff loves frost and snow and tries hard to convince himself that the weather is deteriorating enough for flurries of white stuff.!

The choir travelled to Iraklion yesterday to practice with the University of Iraklion Choir.
It was good to meet them before they come to Agios Nikolaos to sing with us at our concert on 13 th Dec. It's difficult to get a decent photo of everyone. We were loosening up. Our choir had our usual Mon. practice this morning, nerves begin to fray now as we suddenly realise there's less than 2 weeks to go. We are a multi-lingual choir and we will be singing in Greek, French, German, Swedish ,Czech and English. We are called The Rainbow Choir but after seeing the 'young things' in Iraklion, there have been suggestions we should rename ourselves 'The Old Crows'

Your choir sounds so inspiring. Enjoy and show those youngsters how it's done.

I promise to share many pictures of snow with you so your husband doesn't miss it too much. Mine spent an hour with the plow yesterday. 3 more days with snow in the forcast this week.
