This was a fun-filled busy weekend. I knew it would be crazy busy and believe me I made sure rest was incorporated in between activities. Friday evening Peggy and I met Emily for dinner before Christmas Choir Camp. We were talking and laughing and didn't even see Dena come in for her to go order. She came over to say hi and we persuaded her to stay and eat her to go with us. Great laughs were had all around the table. Christmas Choir Camp was fabulous. Loved all the music we sang and began to learn. I knew if I wanted to sing Sunday morning, I would need to be absent from Saturday's camp because our friend Debbie had invited several friends who just happen to have birthdays in August to tea at the St Regis Hotel Saturday afternoon. It was awesome! No, it was amazing! We all tried not to embarrass Debbie by being uncouth or loud but truth be told, we did get a little rambuncious. Of all the ladies teaing that day, I believe we had the most fun, yet refined experience. I think the tea went to our heads.
Debbie being the lovely and wonderful hostess.

This is a picture she has been thinking about getting for several years now. It is a print of a famous picture in the Biltmore House, The Waltz. The fine people and customer service at The Biltmore Estate were so kind and helpful in getting the print shipped.
This morning the choir sang Midnight Cry. What a blessing that song is! In Life Bible Study we had a guest teacher from Jerusalem. She has been to our class before and we love her and her women's ministry in Jerusalem. After class we had a Sunday pot luck lunch together. The whole morning was completed with shopping. She has jewelry with her made by women in the ministry. Everything is so beautiful. In fact, I bought two rings. So Roy will not have to buy me anything for our anniversary that is coming up next month.
So tonight, after a good nap, Roy tried out his hand at preparing pancakes. Not just any pancakes but pancakes kind of based on the ones we loved at Papasita's. They were delicious! He made a trial run because it is his turn to make breakfast for the men's Bible study he attends out here at an Episcopal church this Saturday. The only requirement, it has to be a hearty breakfast.
Now, I need to quit blogging and go back to the homework that is due on Thursday for Community Bible Study Core Group Training. Maybe on Thursday I should wear the t-shirt that Peggy brought me back from Aspen; 'I don't have a.d.d. I have....look a squirrel.
