It has been a quiet couple of days for me, although this is more of a
rainforest than Lake Wobegone. Monday is a day off so there were no
meetings or classes scheduled. The power went off Sunday evening and
just came back around 6 PM Tuesday. Evidently, that is not at all
unusual and everyone here is prepared to cook with propane and
charcoal and do what else they need to do with battery powered lights.
Me, I need my electricity. I have a number of books loaded on my
iPad, but the battery is only good for 10 hours, so I am limited with
that. This laptop is old and needs to be plugged in to run, so I was
out of contact with people for 2 days.
It has also been a quiet couple of days because I am getting over a
cold and cough. My voice is still scratchy and I cough less if I am
quiet, so I didn’t teach today. I also don’t want to share my germs
with the kids at school or confirmation. I am sure I will be fine for
the weekend and I have started on the sermon for Sunday. If it is
dry, I will be at Nrowony preaching point. I am looking forward to
sharing worship with them. If it’s muddy, there is no way to get me
there and back.
