It is foggy and chilly and drizzly here today. But a tad warmer than the entire weekend. Upper 30s and low 40s for the highs on Saturday and Sunday — felt more wintry than autumn-like.
Last week was a difficult, sad, and busy week. My worship team leader’s wife died while he was on a mission trip to Uruguay. With her death, the details of some of their personal life that he had tried to keep quiet naturally surfaced. So he is now a widow with a daughter in first grade. Eh. So I coordinated the meals for the family and then took Friday off to help with the funeral dinner after the service on Friday.
Friday evening was a total veg out night. Pretty much sat on the sofa drinking wine and petting the pug who had a major need for attention since I was busy every evening last week.
Saturday morning I got out and returned some shoes, exchanged a sweater, and bought groceries. Then went home and spent the rest of Saturday cleaning and then cooking. I made homemade minestrone soup, potato soup, eggplant parmesan, roasted butternut squash, and a squash and potato stew. Now I have lunch and dinner for this week.
I didn’t sleep well Saturday night for some reason. And I had two services to play yesterday morning — and I felt as though I had a grain of sand on top of my right eyeball — miserable miserable! So after lunch and reading the paper, I got a blanket and laid on the sofa the rest of the day. I think I needed that.
I did talk to the fashionista yesterday. One of her young charges contracted the swine flu at school apparently. She has been exposed and she and the other child are going today for immunizations. I really hope she doesn’t get it.
