Baby Footprints, St Andrew’s Church and Singing

12 Aug

1    L and Grand-baby B went home today after their all-too-short but beautiful visit.Grand-baby B left her footprints behind on the slate mantlepiece where she was standing to laugh at the baby in the mirror. You’ll have to look carefully! There are the toes from one foot and the heel from the other.

2   The Ingleheart Singers had our weekly rehearsal, not in the usual place but at St Andrew’s Church in Redruth this evening in preparation for our concert there with Cor Serenata, a visiting Welsh choir, on Saturday evening. (If you are local you can get tickets from me or from the Health Food Shop on Bond Street! It’ll be a cracking night!) The altar cloth is a delight with the Ark and the animals depicted in embroidery and collage and the acoustics are amazing.

3   It was just wonderful to be singing with The Inglehearts again after a month of summer holiday. I so miss singing when we have a break. This weekend is going to be full of happiness with singing from Friday to Sunday! Joy!

    I still have the paint-print made by my granddaughter twenty-nine years ago. Such little memories are so precious. You might try to preserve yours with a sheet of libra-film – print and dust will adhere to the sticky surface leaving a perfect copy, then I’m sure your artistic talents will prompt your next moves. It can be tricky getting the film to stick flat as it tends to fly towards the book/surface it is being stuck to, as if attracted by a magnet. Good luck.

      That’s a lovely idea – I wish I’d had it before cleaning! Grandbaby B is visiting again this weekend so I’ll see if I can get another print. Thank you for visiting and for the idea. 🙂

    Agreed, the cloth is gorgeous and brings the flavorful colors to faith. For me, happiness is singing in our church band. Yeah, it’s electric and contemporary, but it’s also filled with graceful, careful moments of subdued vocals and meditative music. Of course, my mom was an Episcopalian choir director (I was in the adult choir by age 12) and she would roll in her grave if she knew I was in the band, not the choir… in the United Church of Christ. YIKES!

    Those little footprints. Glad you got that snapshot, because that’s a very sweet moment. Amy

      I was so pleased that the little footprints showed up when I took the photo. I haven’t cleaned the mantlepiece yet either! 🙂

    The altar cloth is beautiful. A lot of work has gone I to it.
