After a month off, I have re-entered the blogosphere.
A sabbatical is good for everyone.
So, what is new?
- We enjoyed a week of fun and games (literally!) with our grand boys
- I settled into my office, role, and pastoral presence via more meetings than I thought possible, the annual parish festival, multiple funerals, and a large amount of spiritual direction sessions.
- Our garden yielded supremely large zucchini, delightfully sweet cherry tomatoes, and a variety of green peppers. The beans are a bust.
- We spent a fabulous week in Sister Bay relaxing, eating a ton of ice cream, reading, puzzling, coloring, enjoying galleries, eating…
In short, I took a deep breath and inhaled God’s bounty.
Oh, and Tom and I began to read the Harry Potter books…
Back next week with some August thoughts.
