What do you think that means?? Sunday Sonata??? I don’t know!!! I just couldn’t come up with another S word!!! Got up this morning and went to church —went to Central Uniting Church for their 9 am service and it was quite a mix of things today!!! When we got there there were only a few other folks there and their equivalent to “Mr. Bill” came and asked us who we were and where we were from—somewhere along the line it came out that we were from Iaho so i guess that is a new state!!! They were very welcoming and the service was lively –there were tons of kids!!! They did a lot of praise songs (projected–no hymnals) and had a band and it was great music. The Uniting Church is a union of the Methodist, Presbyterian and Congregational churches and this church was a Methodist church at one point according to the plaque on the outside. Anyway, there were a couple of kids who had gone to Thailand and they did a presentation and they were very mature in their faith and it was a pretty incredible experience for them you could tell. The kids all go off to SS and then it is time for the message and I really liked the minister. He was very challenging and preached on the supernatural and how as Christians we should be expecting the supernatural and not just the natural. It was a good sermon and he was very engaging and we felt that God was moving to do powerful things in the church. Afterwards they have tea but we opted out as Chris had his report to submit and we hadn’t eaten and it was almost 11 –there will be plenty of time for that later!!! We will probably try several churches but I did like this one.
We went to Cbar on the Strand and had lunch/brunch. Chris had some corn fritter things and I had yummy thai salad which I have everywhere here trying to find the one I like the best. A lot of the seafood dishes have scallops in them and i am not going there!!! Scallops = Beth getting really sick. We were both exhausted for some reason –gee could it be the guys outside making noise till 3 or the luggage rolling down the hallways or doors slamming??? So we came back to take a nap and then all we heard was “housekeeping–service your room?” and so the napping thing did not turn out too well! So we got up and walked to the theater to see “Hancock” which we enjoyed!!! A funny lighthearted movie that made us laugh and we decided that we needed a day to not worry about what we needed for the house and not shop and stress out but just enjoy being outside a bit and walking around. All in all a great day so far and now Chris is mad at his computer because it is not working right and he has to get his mill reports sent, etc. etc. Some things never change no matter where you live. He always had trouble with the IT stuff at Graham and it is the same here it seems.
So that is the day in a nutshell–if you hear screaming it is most likely Chris yelling at the laptop…..not a pretty sight!!! At least now I can use my phone as a modem and get online that way anywhere I want to!!! The internet here is kind of flaky and very expensive and we had bought a certain amount of usage and we have used that up so now I will be usiing the phone which works great and is much faster. Technology–it is great when it works!!!
