Forgot my book

Yesterday I returned from the women’s retreat and was up in my room reading and working on a post about the retreat when the phone rang. Grace McK was on the line. Aunty Florence wasn’t feeling well, was very shaky and a bit more disoriented than usual. I sent them off straight to the hospital and left to meet them there.

I stopped on the way to pick my aunt’s health info but in my haste to leave I forgot to take along my book.

Aunt Florence probably has a urinary tract infection and was admitted till things get straightened out with the infection and her electrolytes but I think that she will be OK.

Next time maybe I will think to bring a book. At least I had my i- touch to entertain me writing little notes like this to post later.

Back from women’s retreat

That was a good weekend. We retreated in a new venue this year – up at Quest, a Baptist camp and retreat centre. Very nice! They even have wifi for those of us stupid enough to bring our computers along on a retreat. I was finishing up some writing stuff but was pleasantly surprised when I booted up the computer and there was an internet connection.

It was interesting in that the theme of the weekend was on becoming tools in the Master’s hands – in other words on discovering and developing our gifts.

The speaker handed out one of the gifts assessment tests that we have been offering the congregation for over a month with no takers. So there we were – sort of a captive audience as far as taking the test went. And we learned new things I believe – good things about ourselves.

The weather was also beautiful. Lots of outdoor activity happened. Look at our budding American hockey player:

The purple phantom

The windows of the main building looked east over the lake and on both mornings the early risers were greeted by a view of the sun rising. It was a beautiful spot. A plus was that all our meals were provided so I had lots of time to relax as well as quiet time to get some work finished on some papers.
