Yet another week has flown by all too quickly. The days are cooler and the skies have been overcast with sporadic drizzle. The trees are shedding their colorful leaves. My leisurely long walks are now at a brisker pace.
Monday morning I was online with a course from University of Toronto entitled The Social Context of Mental Health. Monday evening I was in Dryden with our Life Group. When everyone attends there are twelve people. A few people are retired, a few work part-time and I’m not quite sure how I should categorize myself. But we all have interesting things to say as we discuss the pastor’s Sunday sermon.
On Tuesday my friend Sharleen invited me to lunch at Wild Huckleberry at the Leavenworth Golf Course. We enjoyed a lovely visit, delicious food and a spectacular view of the golf course. I was amused to find a pair of binoculars at our table. Our server commented that they were there in order to get an even better view.
I had two meetings at the church later on that day. The first was with Pastor Andy and we spent an interesting hour sharing our stories. The next meeting was in planning for Light The Night, an event open to the entire community to be held on Halloween.
Yesterday dawned cold and rainy, a perfect day to hibernate at home. Writing was definitely on the agenda, but I did manage to make a quiche, a chicken casserole as well as an apple crisp. It was a wonderfully relaxing day.
This morning was a bible study with a group of ladies. We are reading a book and studying Revelation. Daily reflections and readings culminate in our weekly discussions and conversations.
I’m sipping apple cider and spending a quiet couple of hours reading, in preparation for a book club meeting. Later on I will be going into Wenatchee for dinner and hopping.
I’m planning to attend a lecture tomorrow at the library in Cashmere. On the way I’ll be stopping at Smallwood’s to take photos and check out the petting zoo. Tomorrow is also the second weekend of Oktoberfest.
Rain or shine, living in Leavenworth is indeed a blessing.
