Part of Opoho church’s midwinter lunch was an invitation to the Sweet Adelines to sing for us. One of our members sings for them, and their conductor is a livejournal friend. I’m hearing feedback through the grapevine that they were much appreciated. Much thanks.

My flatmate loaned me a pedometer this evening. In the last couple of hours I’ve done over 800 steps. Fascinating.

When winter first begins to bite
And stones crack in the frosty night,
When pools are black and trees are bare,
’tis evil in the Wild to fare.
