running, running

The expected high temperature today is 50 degrees Fahrenheit.

All this expanding and contracting in response to temperature changes can't be healthy.

I am continuing with the Catechesis. Hoo boy, this is counter-cultural stuff, very refreshing, but the absolute antithesis of the mindset that seeks a Sunday school curriculum, "so simple, a person could walk in off the street and teach it"...this one takes commitment, big time.

I've found I'm not in "the groove" of sitting all day to a single task however! Food for reflection!

A friend invited me over for dinner to share travel pictures...I arrived on her doorstep last night, a mere -- as it turned out -- 24 hours early...not my smoothest moment ever. With lightning grace, however, she incorporated me into last night's dinner party and cancelled tonight's -- the other guest for this evening had already "called in sick." I had a fine time and met some engaging new folks, we ate royally and talked and talked and laughed a lot...

On my travels once more.

Wow, and I thought it was a bit chilly at 51 this morning at 7:15; it warmed up later. But you are so far from the moderating ocean!
We had a similar social experience in City of Lakes during our vacation - one family showed up on Saturday for the Sunday Open House. It was nice! We actually got to talk to them in peace and quiet!

Still in the high 90's to 100's here, lows only in the 80's...

but, yeah, I forgot that the training is extensive and protocol for doing it "right" is also extensive...BUT when done as they say, it is awesome for the kids....

Weird weather. We're back to plain old hot and humid. Guess I'll have to investigate the weather before I come to visit in Calgary at the beginning of October!

My daughter told me last night that we need to plan a trip to Canada in two years.

I said, "Why?"

She said, "For the Olympics, of course!"

I said, "Are you out of your mind? It is really cold up there!"

I'm a real wimp.
