Hallelujah!

Handel's Messiah was performed for the first time in public in Dublin in 1742. The lyrics were from the Book of Common Prayer - and the Hallelujah chorus has become one of the most recognizable and beloved movements in musical history.

I'm singing it right now in my head ... da da da da da da da da da da da da da daaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh!!

Actually already finished the cleanse last night just after midnight. The hubs got in late and we started to chat. The clock struck 12, signaling the official end of the cleanse. So I polished off what was left of a bottle of my hubs' red - tiny glass. About four ounces, if that. 

Believe it or not - I forgot I even had it!! Totally got lost in the convo about the new gig and completely forgot I was working on a glass of wine! In the old days, not only could I never forget the one I was drinking ... I was already thinking about the next one!!! 

Da da da da da da da da da da .... :)
