What a long week.
A good week, but long.
It was really good to catch up with Johanna and Nate. Really good to spend my birthday hanging out with Johanna. She helped me buy a couple of bras (so I could stop hanging out...) and a few shirts, and we split the difference over a pair of Payless shoes. We ate Yogen Fruz, and French pastry, and drank Starbucks coffee (how did they come up with that name, I wonder...)
Friday night was spent at the Knight & Day restaurant or something for an end of the day birthday gathering. Very fun.
Some highlights were:
-spending time with Johanna and Nate
-reconnecting with Lorna! What fun to find a long lost friend from Bible School days! The world just got smaller
-finding ourselves at Prospect Point, at Stanley Park, and listening to the most soul grabbing music ever. I got verklempt more than once
-getting the prayer shawl finished and delivered to the Prince Albert Ladies, via another good friend
-catching up with conference friends; especially good as we missed the Pastor's and Spouses retreat last year
It was a good weekend, but it's good to be home.
If I make it through MOPS tomorrow morning, I'll be in the clear for a bit.
Feels like bedtime, and it's only just past eight thirty.
I must indeed be getting old...
