I had a quiet and relaxing day today. Did some reading, worked on the puzzle, watched a movie. All day yesterday I was planning my day for work and then I'd remember that it was a holiday, woohoo!! That's the best feeling!
This week is going to be busy with both of our schools reopening. Just figuring out where everyone will enter and exit, creating one-way hallways, placing desks 6 feet apart... our gym is going to be used for P.E. all week but it's also being used as overflow for Sunday services and Prayer Meetings, group gatherings in the evenings... the logistics of all of this has kept some of us up at night.
Our maintenance guy is on vacation so he showed me how to fill and heat our baptistry for this coming weekend.
I just got an email from our Senior Pastor letting me know someone spilled their communion cup on Sunday so we'll need to clean the carpet in the Sanctuary tomorrow.
Plus, Thursday marks one year since my dad died. I've been thinking about him - and my sister - a lot. The hospice place he was at had a service that would create teddy bears out of your loved one's shirt or jacket or whatever. My sister ended up getting one for me and surprised me with it when she visited this summer.
My dad wore this jacket a lot and this is what she gave them to make my bear.
The ribbing on the feet and ears are from the collar and the wrists of the jacket.
As I was saving these pictures to my laptop I noticed the 'Hurricane' label was worn over my dad's heart; plus I quickly and randomly saved these pictures as Teddy... and remembered my dad's middle name was Theodore.
