May has arrived -
and I have been busy, working on my niece's wedding ceremony and message. Putting together
a little thing for the "Family Dinner Night" (or the traditional Rehearsal Dinner).
I have been working ahead on my sermons, to lessen the time crunch while I am gone.
Synod Assembly is this Fri/Sat. so I lose the weekend
wrapped and packaged my Grandniece's birthday gift to be sent as soon as we return from
got my hair colored and cut
pedicure will be this Saturday afternoon
slowly thinking what to pack and take with me
still have to dig out sandals in my closet - I just know they are on the bottom of a pile of shoes/sandals
wrapped a special "Mother of the Bride" gift for my sister
sent a dual graduation card to my niece - who just received her MD degree and this coming
weekend will receive her PhD
have some bills to pay
this morning we hung the colored crepe paper streamers (red, orange & yellow) on the 6
kinda posts along the wall aisles of the sanctuary for Pentecost Sunday
still have a June newsletter article to write
Church council meeting this Sunday after worship
have to contact the pulpit supply for his first reading choice
did manage to squeeze in some weed pulling
planted a couple of hardier herbs
stupidly put 4 peat pots with teeny seedlings on the patio table which the wind blew away
and only the basil and either tarragon or cilantro kinda survived - went to store and got
more tarragon and basil seed - two weeks til germination, and then they have to grow,
before being planted. I probably won't have those herbs til the end of September
waiting for the hummingbirds to arrive - usually they are by now
thinking I've way more to do than time to do it!
I'm looking forward to June and being able to catch my breath!
But it is all good and full of goodness - so I will manage it all, by the grace and help of God and maybe some fire and power from the Holy Spirit!!!!
