posted by soe 10:44 pm

While Rudi went out to fulfill our final beer brewing for the year this morning, I stayed home to get some seasonal tasks done.

I’ve been working on card writing today while listening to Christmas cds. I’m nearly done with the cards and have listened to the following discs:

  • Let It Be Christmas, Dad’s 2004 holiday compilation. (Favorite song: “Let It Be Christmas” by Alan Jackson)
  • Once in a Year, Dad’s Christmas mix from … Dad? (Favorite songs: “I Believe in Santa’s Cause” by the Statler Brothers and “Light One Candle” by Peter, Paul, and Mary)
  • Cold Blow These Winter Winds: A Celtic Celebration of Christmas. Recorded live at The Queen’s Hall in Edinburgh and bought used for three pounds at a cd shop on Notting Hill in London in 2005. (Favorite song: “Christmas in Prison” featuring Rory McLeod)
  • Christmas like a Lullaby, by John Denver. (Favorite songs: “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” and “Noel — Christmas Eve”)
  • Yules of Yore: TV Land Tunes from Christmas Past (Favorite song: “My Christmas Room” by Jimmy Dean (I don’t think it’s the sausage guy))
  • Singers and Songwriters: Christmas Songs. (Favorite songs: “It Doesn’t Have to Be That Way” by Jim Croce and “Cherry Tree Carol” by Judy Collins)
  • Blue Christmas, a release by Mojo magazine (Favorite song: “In the Bleak Midwinter” by Ed Harcourt)
