Busy day

I've eaten lamb twice today. I got up early and put a leg of lamb in the oven to roast. Had to baste it every 15 minutes, so I worked out of my home study all morning. Then I took this magnificent hunk of meat over to the church for noon Bible study. We were missing a few regulars today, but we still managed to basically demolish a 6.5 lb. leg of lamb. All I got to take home was the bone (with meat still clinging to it). That's for Sassy, after collinsmom scrapes what she wants off.

Then I made gyros link sausages for supper. There's this butcher shop in town where I got the lamb which makes its own gyros links. They're about the size of brats, and they're fresh-made in natural casings with no fillers. They also make their own tzatziki (sp.?) sauce. *yum*

In between, my e-mail informs me that there's a problem with our youth group mission trip reservations, and I can't seem to ever get ahold of these people. So that adds some stress. I took a walk in a park this afternoon to relax, and that was great, but I wound up all sweaty. So I took a shower before making the gyros links.

I was just about ready to go over to the church to get ready for my evening class when Sassy came in, and she smelled like crap -- literally. She had found some stuff in the yard and rolled in it. Her ruff was stiff in places. Well, I didn't want her wallowing the couch in that condition, so I herded her into the bathroom, got some shampoo, and put her in the tub. She was fairly submissive; I think she knew she'd messed up and Daddy wasn't real happy. Then I dried her off and went out the door to the church.

We had a great first session of God and Me (one Kindergartner and four Second Graders). Several adults were on hand to help. I really feel good about what we did and how well it went. I want to build good pastoral relationships with these kids and their families! So, there's three more sessions of God and Me to go.

Tomorrow, it's off to Indy to get the Bishop's signature on our Troop's Bishop's Award of Excellence application, then I've got to go to Nashville (IN) tomorrow night to conduct an Eagle Board of Review. Friday afternoon, I think I'll go spend the night at Wilderstead and do chores there on Saturday.
