SO grateful that the trees which were causing a damp microclimate over our vestry roof have *finally* been cut back [Overused]

This has been ongoing since November last year, and I am just thrilled that it has finally happened.

Now - on to the next three bits of tree work. Who knew that a churchwarden's life was so sylvan?

That's lovely, daisymay!

Praise from me too, and for an unexpected musical pleasure on Saturday night. Our local chamber choir, together with professional soloists and a baroque rent-an-orchestra, did Henry Purcell's King Arthur! This was fabulous fun, especially as the choir is rather big, the story and the music great anyway. The performance was well-designed and thought through, with quite a bit of dramatic acting by all as well. Excellent stuff! [Yipee]

Very glad that such things are offered locally (which I wasn't aware of - I only found out the day before!), and some good talks were had with others in the audience - before and after the show, not during, of course. [Biased]

Once a month, clergy and/or churchwardens from our local churches meet to discuss what we are all doing, any joint activities we might be planning and so on. Today's was a real blessing - a couple who have been keeping a local Baptist church running, without benefit of clergy, particularly were upheld and encouraged [Angel]

Whenever I see a headline about how church attendance is dropping, I remind myself of how many different forms of 'church' there are out there, and of all the great and wonderful things they do for their communities - for example, running a Baby (equipment!) Bank for young parents in need of help.

Thank you God, for all your servants do and try to do!

YaY, my Nordic Walking Poles, which I left at a bus stop have been found. A bus company rang me this morning. I believed that I would never see them again because I left them at the time school was getting out and I can just imagine children 'sword-fighting' with them.

The other brilliant happening was finding a $50 supermarket card my youngest brother had given me for my birthday in May. The timing was particularly good because I have had a couple of unexpected bills that must be paid now.

I had to look up Invocation, which was set to O send thy light forth and thy truth, but I think those words should go to Martyrs.

My elderly cat, Bjorn, was not eating, and losing weight badly so I took him to the vet. It has been determined that he doesn't like the dry prescription food he was being given, so I have shifted him to the canned version of it and he is eating again! And his blood tests all came back normal too.

I am so thankful for the prayers of so many people around the world! My family is all safe. I have one friend I haven't heard from, but hope that after the flooding is down, and power is on, he will be able to communicate with me.

I'm sure there will be much rejoicing and giving thanks tomorrow at church, too!

I copied a couple of TV programmes for a friend about to return to California, leaving us no time to watch together. I put them on an SD card and put the card in a little box, and the box in my trousers pocket. We picked him up from the B&B and drove to Gravesend to view the statue of Pocahontas and look at the river, and then to a pub for lunch. I reached for the card, and it wasn't there! Girly pockets, not deep enough to hold things securely. I was sure I had felt it several times while out. Discussion followed. Was there time to retrace our steps before the planned evening lecture? Disagreement followed, but it was my SD card, and my car, so we dropped the friend to pick up later and drove home, where I intended to find a flash drive and recopy for transfer during the evening.

Got out of the car, opened the rear door to get my bag (which I had searched), looked down on the concrete drive, and there it was, placed neatly at right angles to the road.

For which, thanks. But also puzzlement.

Quite clear, Mrs. S.!

In other news, the DVLA have re-issued my driving licence, on a provisional basis, for three years!

This is fairy nuff, as I am still on anti-seizure meds following brain surgery, so I guess I'm classed as (potentially) epileptic, albeit free of seizures now for over a year.

I shall now look for a new Episcopal Carriage (possibly something exotic, like a Ford), but I dread to think what my insurance premium might amount to... [Eek!]

Still, I may not have to wait about at Bus Stops, with The Glums, in the Winter Weather. [Yipee]

I was just thinking, you'll have to change your tag-line. [Big Grin]

Health to drive the Episcopal Carriage, whatever variety it is! [Yipee]

I may not be on an island any more, but I'm still an islander.
