I’m up in the mountains for the annual meeting of the Maine Conference of the United Church of Christ. My work as nominating committee chair is done, and my report made, so the rest is listening and visiting and knitting and networking. I’m excited to have met one of my blog readers in person for the first time–shout out to Becky! She is knitting an impressive pair of socks on Size One needles.
My perennial roommate, The Wise Cellist, and I had a drink after the evening’s session and chatted with RevFun and Pastor Peters, among others. Now we have retreated to our room and an edition of Nightline about the Hallelujah Diet, supposedly drawn from Genesis. Huh?
I’ve been tickled to hear comments from a number of people about how well I look. While I know there is a long way to go, it feels good to, well, to feel good and to have other people notice it.
The drive here was gorgeous! Sometimes I wish we lived in the mountains. Maybe someday.
I’ll be home tomorrow night. Hope you’re having a good weekend, too.
