Gittin' 'er done

Busy day today. Didn't want to get up in the dark. It was cold, too. Winter's a-comin'! But I did get up, got to church, did worship, did Sunday School, came home, walked the dog, did housework.

collinsmom got back from her seminar in KY about 1:00 p.m. I was over at the church at 2, cutting fabric for quilts. Venturers got there at 3, bashed out quilts till 5, whereupon the Church Council arrived for dinner, followed by meeting. Big meeting, well attended, money tight.

After the meeting, I met with a young man (12-year-old Scout) whom I invited to be the principal speaker at our Centennial Camporee worship service next Sunday. There'll be several hundred Scouts and Scouters in attendance. Ben will present the Nothing But Nets international Good Turn, both for its own sake and to model the presentation for the other Scouts, since the essence of the Good Turn is using Scouts as ambassadors to other community groups to raise awareness of the need to prevent malaria, etc.

Finally, I settled in to watch some Food Network, especially The Next Iron Chef. Tough, tricky battles tonight. I especially appreciated that the Chairman had them doing one-pot meals using various implements from around the world. We Scouters do a lot of one-pot meals!

Tomorrow, I fly to Texas for a meeting on Tuesday, then back Tuesday night. Bash out two days in the parish, then it's off to the big do (Centennial Camporee) for the weekend. And along the way, there are literally a couple dozen things I'm working on simultaneously.
