Once upon a time there was an ugly little jewelry box.

Rainy Day Song Medley

Do certain things ever make you think of songs?

They sure do for Beth and me.

The idea for this rainy day medley began while we were back at school. It had been raining on and off for weeks and one particular Sunday morning it was pouring. 
After the morning church service, we scampered through the puddles and failed to dodge raindrops while heading to the dinning hall, where our Sunday school class was held. The Everly Brothers' song "Crying in the Rain." had been stuck in my head ever since the rain had began. I even doodled a raincloud on my bulitin and wrote the song lyrics in with the raindrops. :)  
While we waited for Sunday school to start, we began to talk. There are so many oldies songs about the rain, wouldn't it be fun to do a medley? Right there we started humming, and we tried to see if the Cascades' "Rhythm of the Rain." would fit with "Crying in the Rain." We didn't get too far before the Sunday school teacher came, but we saved the idea for when we had the time.
Turns out, the next time we came to it, was a rainy day back at home. Beth found the guitar chords to both songs, and they were in the same key. We slowed the tempo of "Crying in the Rain" so the two songs would flow together. Beth arranged the lyrics so each song would take a turn, and started the medley with the guitar riff from "Rhythm of the Rain." We sang it a few times, seeing how best to blend the two songs, and then I really wanted to try if we could sing a verse from each song at the same time. It took some trial and error, but then it worked!

"There were never such devoted sisters!"

For those of you intrigued by this gif we had at the end of one of our posts... :)

During the first few weeks of school, we found out that there would be a talent show in April, and some friends, who were also sisters, told us they had been thinking of doing the song "Sisters" from the classic movie "White Christmas". One of them wasn't so sure she wanted to do it, but if another pair of sisters were to join them...

We had sporadic practice sessions with their busy schedules, and since large feather fans aren't the easiest to find, we made some improvisations, but here is the finished result, kindly filmed by our father on his phone. :)

Last Week of School...

When we started this semester, we thought when we reached this week, our feelings would be expressed quite accurately by this song line:
