Weekend Update

Overall this past weekend was quite enjoyable. We went to the Hensall town-wide yard sale. While I enjoyed the Fireman's Breakfast, Annette did some shopping. By the time I was done, and found her, the sales were winding down, so we wandered a bit more, then went back to the car. It started to rain, so we drove around town only to find that many people had left the remains of their yard sale stuff at the curb for free. By the time we were done the car was packed full, so we headed home and Annette unpacked her treasures.

By the early evening we headed to Kitchener/Waterloo to visit friends. We had a good evening visiting, and Barry gave me his old drill press and bench grinder as he had replaced them. (Thank-you again Barry.)

We spent the night there, and went to worship at Riverside ARP in Cambridge. I had never been there so I didn't know what to expect. The congregation was wonderful. Both Annette and I felt at home right away, something that doesn't happen for either of us very often. The worship was good, as was the sermon. Justin even spent the whole worship service with us rather than going to the nursery. Afterward I had lots of fun talking, and was quite sad we had to leave because we had to meet with some people and get back to the place we stayed the night for lunch. I have to say, I did not realize how much I missed having people around who are our age and have children until I worshiped with Riverside. It is a congregation I very much wish I was part of.

We headed home in the middle of the afternoon, all of us very tired. Annette and I had to switch who was driving part way home as fatigue at the wheel was becoming a problem. I was exhausted by the time we did get home, and even had an afternoon nap, something I very rarely do. Even after the nap I was still very tired so I didn't do much else that day which means not only did I not get the rest of the Banner posts finished this weekend, but the reading I wanted to do in Pierced for Our Transgressions did not get done on Sunday either.

No matter what, it was a good weekend worshiping and visiting.
