Lots going on

I'm zipping over to Wilderstead tomorrow to finish the skirting (I hope) around the cabin. Then, it's up to Jungle Jim's to buy some bangers. I have promised my Wednesday Bible study group bangers and mash for lunch. We also have others making Yorkshire Pudding, peas, and trifle.

Also, first thing in the morning, I kick off my first on-line NAUMS Board meeting as President. These have been amorphous affairs in the past (that's putting it kindly). I'm going to try to herd the cats a bit more efficiently.

Sunday's going to be a big day. We are observing All Saints, with eucharist and remembrance of the dead. My confirmation class kicks off during Sunday School. Then there is the UMW/UMM lunch and meetings. Finally, our church Fall Party starts at 4:00 in Dan R.'s horse barn. There will be hayrides, mucho food, costumes, a bonfire -- the works.

I got called by a pollster this evening -- my second polling in the last month. But let's not go there. I just want to wake up and find myself living in the same country on Tuesday.
