It bothers me that the date is always messed up on my posts—-it is set up on US time and to change the blog it messes everything up so I have just left it as it is but it bothers me…..silly, I know! But it is quite honestly Sunday afternoon here even though the heading probably will say Saturday night or Sunday morning in the wee hours.
We headed out to our little church today—our attendance increased to 19 this week and there were actually 4 men so if we could get everyone there on the same Sunday it would probably double the congregation. I took my shoebox–the deadline is this Saturday and they were happy to get it and take it to the collection point. It is just kind of neat to be able to continue something that I have done for years! Today was World Wide Communion Sunday I think but since there was no pastor there today (they rotate lay speakers on the Sundays the part time pastor is at the other charge) I noticed that communion at this church was next Sunday. Olive was the speaker today and she was very good. We sang only one song that we knew (Amazing Grace–but they left off the last and my favorite verse) but we muddled through. And we found out what benches NOT to sit on. Whew—most uncomfortable seats I have been in for awhile! Poor Chris was moving around and I knew that he had to be very uncomfy if I was!!! So next time we will go for the more comfy ones
I tried to wash off the veranda but it actually ended up to be work! There is a low spot so all the water pools there and you have to sweep it off, it keeps going to the low spot, etc. And the stuff I was using to clean it didn’t seem to be all that great or maybe it was just me. And the hose kept coming apart at the sprayer so I got a couple of showers! I may get this figured out ! Funny how something that I thought would be so simple turned out a lot more work than anticipated! Isn’t that the way it is?
Chris is doing his reports now and has a busy week ahead of him. Early meeting at one of the northern mills at 7:30 am and then a dinner meeting back in Townsville in the evening so he have a long day. We are getting our new outside furniture and dining room table and chairs on Tuesday along with the AC guy coming to put in 2 AC units in the bedroom so I need to get stuff done tomorrow so Tuesday I am not in the way! So much for our exciting news for today!
