A happy choir day

The choir year starts up this weekend, and I am, as ever, happy and excited about it.. While it is great to have the summer off, it is way more great to return in September. We always begin the year with a choir retreat which includes a choir blessing and dinner one evening, and an all-day day of voice technique review, lectures, lots of rehearsing, and lots of happy reunions with friends not seen for a while. We usually conclude with a Mass, and this year the Mass was the wedding of two parishioners. The groom, a singer himself, dropped in to sing a little Mendelssohn and give us a treat. He is a policeman, so the natural treat was wedding donuts. When he told us there would be donuts, we were thinking, donuts ordinaire. But no ordinaire here! Aren’t they beautiful? We were amazed.

Oh my! I thought that donut was a hat until i read your post. My grammie used to wear hats that looked that beautiful. What a fun, and lovely, treat.
