Last night we had our Watchnight Service. I love the Watchnight Service as everyone is going out after Mass and they really dress up! We started a little after 10:00 pm and ended just before midnight. Since both Bernie Murray and Reynaldo Taylor were working, our friend Mr. Alberto Buddle was our organist for the evening, which saved me from having to play guitar. However, the Lovely Mona and I did a flute and recorder duet for the Offertory. As usual, just at midnight the entire city erupted with fireworks. And the fireworks continued all night. The Lovely Mona and I didn't get to bed until 3:00 am as it was simply too noisy. We watched Blades of Glory which is very silly and a lot of fun. Señorita Chompita Wiggletail decided that sleeping past 8:00 am was slothful and got us up. We've been moving slowly today and the neighborhood is very quiet.
How are you spending the first day of the New Year?
