Today was our first off-day of the Christmas tour, replete with sleeping in, working on business matters, and enjoying the sunny cold of Indiana. After lunch at Panera Bread, we loaded up in our cars and drove off for Toledo, Ohio, a distance of 4.5 hours on Google and 8 hours for us. We just enjoy being in the car way too much! On the way we had the pleasure of reading great books, like The Scarlet Letter and The Name of the Rose, listening to the intensely beautiful Christmas album by the Academy of St Martin in the Fields, talking about the origin of fairy tales, and working on the good old AMB duties. Berklee, the resident artist of the group, cut snowflakes for our windows and hung Christmas wreaths in order to bring a bit of the Advent beauty into our big white van.
Finally we pulled into a snowy Toledo, Ohio, where a comfy hotel and warm food awaited us. We hope to see you tomorrow at Westgate Chapel for the 6:00 PM concert! Merry Christmas to all and good night!
