I've been warming up with a cup of hot coffee; my choir spent about an hour singing Christmas carols outside at the Alderley Landing Farmer's Market. Alderley Landing is right on the waterfront, so it's pretty chilly there at the best of times, let alone at night in December. Cold or not, we had a lot of fun, and it was really pretty, with all of the Christmas lights up around the market. We were on a stage set up near the carosel, of which I took a picture (below). It's not the best shot... I was taking it with my 'phone while juggling a music book, mittens, and a clip-on light which didn't want to stay clipped on. It actually looked a lot prettier than it appears here.
