That Christmas Song + Snow Shoes

OK, I finally cut loose after lunch today on that Christmas Song and feel better about it. I think it’s getting under my skin, as it were, meaning it’s becoming part of me like “When the Night Wind Howls” is part of me. But still, I’m not quite there yet with it. Have another week to go before our Dec. 20th concert so, hopefully, that should give me time to really nail it down.

Thought I would put my snow shoes on this afternoon and go for a hike down back. But when I faced the outdoors with its wicked wind and icy coldness, I said the hell with it and came back inside. No use of torturing myself. I’ll wait for a better day. (Maybe we’ll have rain and then a freeze so I can walk on top of the snow?)

    I really could NOT cope with all the cold and snow you get!

    When it comes to songs, you really have to sing them right out – whatever anyone else thinks 😉 It’s the only way to get the breathing right, and just think how good it is for your lungs!

    Hey, thanks for your comment, Dragonstar! Ya gets used to the cold and snow, and today it’s supposed to get up over the freezing mark.

    Yes! It’s good for the lungs to just sing right out and let the notes fall where they may, as long as they’re somewhere near the right pitch! Good breath is the key, plus enthusiasm.

    Hey, Boss! Thanks for the comment. Just like the old days when my readership consisted mainly of you and the zgirl5! And yer right, I’m becoming a softie! It’s time I remembered and lived up to that old adage, “Ya gotta be tough to live in Maine!!” …or else I’ll have to move back to Mass.
