I have spent the day reading my blogs from the beginning. It was a fun way of re-living my life, in more ways than one. I read every comment and I am so impressed with your generosity. Some of them I had forgotten but I have never forgotten the wall of well wishers that were there for me. I have to write to Shreve and tell her how my life changed when she made me a blogger. I do fell warm with all my new family.
Friday was a special day. There were chores to be done in the early part of the day. At noon I had promised a neighbor to drive us to lunch and bridge afternoon. I had fabulous cards and won the little potted flower that adorn our lunch table. Also a cute little teapot filled with chocolates. We drove home to our cottages and from four to five we rested (and fed the animals and sent them out to be safe for their later shut-ins) At five we went to investigate the monthly ART WALK. We attended only two of the affairs.
The first was a book signing venture. The woman author had written her first book. I have known her slightly since we moved here. The venue for her was the gift store called Necessities and Temptations, owned by an old friend who in the newspaper had promised to furnish wine and chocolates. I had a thimble full of wine (I was driving) and a couple of candies. The first one was filled with marzipan. (difficult to find) So I had to buy a half pound.
We went across the street to investigate another artist, painter and wood worker whose name is Ole Olson. He had to be a Swede with the on ending his name. And sure enough he was and his wife was a Norwegian. She was interesting beyond that, for she is the new minister in the Methodist Church. We have heard so much about her and her successes in rebuilding the attendance. The food at the gallery was unbelievable. Hot Swedish meatballs and Sushi with that wonderful green mustard. We stayed three meatballs and one sushi worth. But we were very impressed with the two .
So impressed in fact, that we decided to go to church today. And everything that had been said about the warmth and the Well-Coming in that church is not an exaggeration. We felt very Well-Come.
