Weekend Recap

I need a weekend to recover from my weekend! What a fun one it was, but I am t-i-r-e-d!

It began Friday about noon when I had the delightful chance to meet up with Sara and her mom for lunch! They were in the area for a dedication of a memorial garden honoring her dear aunt who passed away last spring. It's such fun to meet a bloggy friend in real life; what a special bond there is between believers and bloggers! Here we are at Panera Bread. My only complaint is that it was just too short!

Later that afternoon I headed to our church's Ladies Retreat. It was great. The theme was the Holy Spirit, and our sessions, taught by a handful of ladies from our church, were encouraging and inspiring. During one of our small group discussion times, my group moved outside and sat next to this view:

And I just have to show you non-Texans a close-up of these beautiful bluebonnets!

The retreat concluded with breakfast on Sunday and we drove straight to church. It was an all-day affair for me: a meeting and recap of my boy's mission trip with the the other students and families, and then the Membership class, which I routinely help with. I didn't get home until after 7:00 and didn't even turn on my computer last night! I was wiped out!

BTW, many thanks to Debbie for linking up my TSMSS post on Saturday!

So now I've got to get my day in gear. And I have a pile of books to read/review this week. As my man likes to say, "Onward and sideways!"

it was so much fun meeting up with you!! I wish we had had a whole day to visit and talk!! Hopefully we can get more time when I visit UT with my daughter!!! :)

I thoroughly enjoyed seeing all the bluebonnets this weekend. There were places by Wimberley that had fields of them!!!

Glad you had a great retreat!!!

Linda, I was hoping you would post about your ladies' retreat. It sounds like a wonderful topic. And the view of the bluebonnets was lovely. As a non-Texan, it's new for me so thank you.

Isn't it fun to meet a blogging friend in person? I agree with your sentiment. There is a special bond between believers and bloggers. I got to spend time with Sassy Granny AKA Kathleen on Sunday. She is a treasure!

And you can count on me anytime to help out with linking up posts. It was my pleasure Linda.

Blessings and love,

It sounds like none of us were home this weekend! I was away and got in a bit of hiking and photography. I came home exhausted and sore, and I'm leaving again on Wednesday for an Avon meeting.

Onward and sideways! I have to borrow that. Hilarious. Love the bluebonnets.

Oh, the bluebonnets! I've been gone 20 years and still, I miss the bluebonnets!
