Blimey, and it's only Saturday!

Yes, it keeps on rolling, this fun weekend. Okay, tomorrow is Sunday and I think I will spend most of the days translating, but it's all good. We go our first huge load of snow last night. I think Ljubljana has about 20 cm of fresh white cover and temperatures are going to drop as low as -10C in the next few mornings. But... as I had said before... it's all good. Yes, it's only Saturday and this weekend seems like a long, fun one already.

I will post only a few pictures, whole set is already on flick'r.

Friday evening saw another lovely get-together. Iggy's brother Tomaž and his his wife Metka decided it's time for The Rehearsal, namely some light food, more wine and lot more music. 10 people, two guitars, one bass and whole lot of good time. I was surprised how... coherent... we were given that we did it for the first time. I am sure I will take some videos next time The Rehearsal happens. I am sure it will.

Saturday. Well, to be honest. I slept through most of the afternoon, fighting with a tiny cold and whatnots. Iggy - his choir having won the regional competition - was singing in Ljubljana. Yes, yes, yes, they were good. And this time I wasn't crying all the darned time, because I wanted to make a video of their performance. Have I already mentioned how much I really hate taking pics and videos with phone, especially if the cam is not really competent like iPhone's? Well, I did it anyway. Shaky evidence is here. Mind you, video is 10+ minutes long.

And then it was time for some vin chaud in the city centre, full of people, festive mood and coldness. And now it's bed time. Goodnight! :)

Slovenes singing Gershwin - I love it! What kind of choral group is this, a community choir? There are some very good voices there...

It's not a community choir. It's just a group with common desire. :)

Wonderful photos. Hope you are able to have more downtime on Sunday to help recover from that "tiny cold." *hugs*

Ljubljana looks amazing always, and now I must also plan a Christmas visit. However designed that holiday light decor did an amazing job of complimenting the classical look of the city with contemporary lighting, perfectly highlighing the city center for the season.
Kana the dog looks a bit uncertain about the party. I hope she got a snack and some luvvin'

What a happy, joyous weekend!

Yes, Ljubljana is pretty around new year, but I'd suggest may or early June. Then ALL is really beautiful here, not only the city. :)

Kana... singing was loud. But, yes, snacks and luvvin' helped it a lot. :)

Wow, that's some serious snow. :) And yes, Ljubljana is always beautiful. :)

I"m almost ready for winter... almost. The weather site says it's -2C outside, and we are in for some rain and wet snow (ugh!) tomorrow.

So did you recover from that "tiny" cold? xxx

And now we're without all the snow again. Rain and +2.

Bleach.
