Another weekend has flown by. Ours finished with a meal out with the family to farewell our eldest daughter until September as she goes back up north to work at Arkaroola Village. It's an isolated tourist village where you can go on walking trails and also has the famous "Ridgetop tours" of the magnificent scenery around the area. They actually had a spot on a tv show yesterday showing scenes from there.
She will be having a birthday soon and will still be up there. Communication is not wonderful as her mobile phone does not work there and you have to rely on facebook when she can get any internet coverage during her free time.
I went to church on my own this morning as Adrian had to work. It was funny, as I walked down the street, heading towards the front of the church, I saw a crane drive past with the logo of the company he works for and then I saw him behind it driving a truck. I didn't realise he was working in town and it was a real coincidence that he just happened to be there at the same time as I was.
An old friend of ours, who was a young student minister back when our children were young, was at church this morning to take part in the service. He writes and illustrates Christian story books for children. When he first started he used a couple of our children as inspiration for his characters. It was good to hear him speak and to catch up with him after the service too.
He reminded me of a story about our eldest son. He had brought a friend along to church one day and they were both wearing baseball caps. One of the older ladies was upset about them wearing them in church and told them off. Andrew drew up a license to wear a hat in church and gave it to our son the next week and told him next time anything was said about his hat just to show them the license. It didn't bother me that he wore his hat, we were just pleased that he came with us to church.
Well, there's not much left of today, so I will get on and share my card.
