A good day today.  Worship went well, I only had to lead the hymn sing this morning.  After worship, Tam had lunch for a number of the congregation.  There was turkey, stuffing, rice, pumpkin pie, etc.  It was good.  We were not invited to G and D’s this year.  Wondering about that a little.  Seems strange, I hope everything is okay with them, maybe I’ll call later in the week.

Another day in the life

Burnaby, BC.
A Saturday, a quiet one at home.  T  is at the church practicing on the organ and painting the entrance.  I worked on my quizzes for Denominational Studies on Tuesday, watched some TV and prepared roast chicken for supper.  It was supposed to be a sunny afternoon, but that has not materialised.  It has been an interesting week.  Wednesday and Thursday I went to the Laing Lecture series at Regent College to listen to Walter Brueggeman.  It was pretty amazing, T came with me on Thursday.  A few of us went to Mahonys for dinner.  We had nachos, pricy, but good.

I had a phone call from one of the political parties today.  When I told them that I had voted already they asked who I voted for.  I told them its called a secret ballot because its none of your business.  The nerve.  We are going to be electioned out.  All three levels of government are holding elections in the next thirty five days.  No wonder the phone has been ringing daily from pollsters, etc.  We voted already, at the advance polls because T is leaving to work in Calgary on Tuesday, election day, and I have classes all day and will probably not make it back in time to vote after classes.  It should be interesting coverage on Tuesday night.  Now I know why the Tudors is not scheduled on CBC.

I have been stitching on Grandma’s project again.  I know I am really busy this semester, but I really would like to get it completed for her ninetieth birthday this year.  There is not much left, if I keep at it during those times I catch some TV I might have a hope.

Grandma's project - finished

Its Thanksgiving weekend, we have not had the typical invite to T’s relatives. . .yet.  We are already planning to stay after worship tomorrow for lunch and are going to a potluck Thanksgiving at Somerville House on Monday.  That should be more than enough turkey until Christmas.

Less than eight months until granduation, that is a scary thought in some ways!

Watched part of  The Last Temptation of Christ tonight, but I was too tired to stay up for the entire movie.  In bed by ll pm.
