We got home in good time today.
In case you missed it, Randall and I left fairly early Tuesday morning to get to Kindersley for a memorial service. The wife of a pastor friend we knew from Prince Albert passed away last week and we wanted to be there.
It was a good service that, as always, left me wondering what people will say about me when I die. But that's another post.
There were a couple of highlights for me; One was catching up with people from Prince Albert who came down for the service.
Another very fun thing was meeting an Anglican Priest and his wife who've been followers of Randall's blog for a few years. When we remembered that they were in Kindersley we thought it would be fun to connect with them.
We had a really good visit with them. It was so very cool to share our stories and see how often our paths have intersected and criss-crossed, and how similar our outlooks on life are. I was very blessed by our time with them.
The other very fun thing was meeting Annette! I'm afraid I wasn't as vocal as I should have been, but it's not often (has it ever happened?...) that someone who reads my blog recognizes me and seeks me out. I was so surprised that I was a little tongue-tied.... (Yes. It happens.) But it was so encouraging, and I'm very glad she sought me out. This space has become a little self-indulgent of late, and I forget that there might be actual people with actual pleasant, friendly, smiling faces reading what I write.
So, thank you Annette for introducing yourself to me. It really did make my day :)
And now Wednesday is pretty much done.
Preteen went well. It was our last meeting for this season. We let them play their two favourite games... "Capture the Flag" and "Touch the Pole". I hope they had a good year with us; I had a good year with them.
Tomorrow I'm considering tagging along with Himself when he goes to his breakfast meeting and hospital visitation in Edmonton. I've promised to sit at another table and read a book while he's doing his thing (in fact I'd prefer it). I'm hoping that we'll have time for me to do a little grad outfit shopping. I'm planning the default get-up in the back of my mind just in case, but it would be nice to have something a little newer and sharper to wear for our last graduation. Besides, I don't want to make the new suits look bad.
I'm feeling like it's going to be an early night. This is what my crusty eyes are telling me.
I think, perhaps, I will listen to them.
