We're safely home after a lovely visit with the relatives. This was one of those warm fuzzy times of life, and I look forward to whenever we get to repeat the experience. That said, it will feel so good to sleep in our own bed tonight!!!
We got home around 5 pm. Unloaded. Cooked supper. Wrote some dates in my new 2008 calendar (yikes!). Gave Lil' Princess a bath, snack, bedtime stories and a big kiss.
And then it was right back into the parish to-do list. Sigh. The most pressing thing at this moment (and the reason I'm blogging and procrastinating) is my Annual Report. Due ASAP. So I guess I should just stop dithering and get it done. Then maybe I can clear my mind and start getting some thoughts for Sunday's sermon.
"We three kings of Orient are, bearing gifts we traverse afar..." The Gospel of Matthew is so very Jewish-orientated, it's interesting that this is the one that tells us the story of these three Gentiles from far away who show up, make trouble with their questions to Herod, and then skedaddle out the back way after delivering some unique baby shower gifts. Huh?!? We'll see what rabbit hole this one leads me down.
