How I Spent Today

5:05 am:  Roll over, look at the clock, and realize I can sleep longer since it's Sunday.
5:29 am:  Repeat
5:46 am : Repeat
6:07 am:  Still don't have to get up, but the brain cells are starting to get too active.  Decide to give sleep one more try.
7:15 am: Wow!  I actually fell asleep again.  This time though, I'm awake for the day and I get up.
7:30 am:  A bowl of Cheerios and finishing up the shopping list for my husband.  He's going through the Sunday paper for coupons and then heads out to the store.
7:50 am:  Decide to boil some small red potatoes for potato salad later in the day.  Head to the shower.
8:30 am:  Dressed for church, read the paper,  make out offering check.
8:45 am:  Check email, play a game or 2 of solitaire.
9:10 am:  Chat with Elder Son via googletalk. Invite him up for burgers on the grill this afternoon.
9:30 am:  Leave for church.
10-11 am:  Service with wonderful young pianist, and some good hymns.
11:20 am - 1:05 pm.  Moderate a lively church council meeting with a lengthy agenda.  Aside from usual business discussion topics include progress on establishing our food pantry as an independent nonprofit corporation, safety of shelter guests and employees when nobody else is around (i.e. locking the church), and improving handicap accessibility to our building.
1:30 pm.  Arrive home and find Elder Son has arrived, groceries are mostly put away, and everybody is hungry.
2:15-3:30 Enjoy grilled burgers, green salad with fresh-picked greens, and potato salad. Admire Elder Son's new Android-type cell phone.  Enjoy his visit, and help him "grocery shop" in our cupboards. Say goodbye as he heads back home.

3:30-4:15 Write the monthly moderator's column for our church newsletter. Email it to the newsletter editor.

4:15-6:00  Relax on the porch. Knit a few rows, doze in the sun, knit a few more rows.

Plans for the rest of the evening:  Read further in  "Game of Thrones."  Knit a bit more.  Plan tomorrow's lunch and pack up my school bag.  Early bedtime.
