Contra Dancing

Several of you have inquired, "what is contra dancing?" I can refer to you the wikipedia explanation of Contra Dancing.   It is a whole lot of fun - last night I felt excited as a little girl as the caller started organizing us and the band started tuning up their strings. It was a full night as the band (i found out later) was quite a popular one.  I would say there was a crowd numbering around 300??   It was packed...  it made the do-si-do's and the "swing your partner" a little more bumpy and touchy than normal.

One of the first things to acquaint yourself with upon arriving at a contra dance is the calls.  There are a few words that may be new to your vocabulary, like: "allemande" and "hey for four" (still not quite sure what that one means) and "gypsy"... the beginner's practice is very beneficial to attend!  You get to see you are not the only one who may not know your left from your right. :-)  Here are a list of steps/c…

Sundry Things

So Summer Begins.

About an hour ago I opened my front door and it felt like a furnace outside.  It's hot. I am very thankful for air conditioning.  This summer I won't be sailing two days a week as I did two summers ago.  I won't be catching every random babysitting opportunity.  I won't be sweating under a canopy at the Sand Hills Farmers Market selling beautiful veggies and fruit.  I won't be renovating anything in my house, no summer projects this year.

This summer I will be...

... working in an office, being part of a healing process to young and old, men and women, people of all sorts.  It fills me with a deep level of satisfaction.  I come home quite tired, ready to embrace an evening on my couch and a hot meal.  I totally embrace that when it happens!

... involved in other's lives, with a desire to spur them on in Christ Jesus. What a JOY...

Isaiah 58:13-14

Isaiah 58:13-14
You must  observe the Sabbath
rather than doing anything you please on my holy day.
You must look forward to the Sabbath
and treat the Lord’s holy day with respect.
You must treat it with respect by refraining from your normal activities,
and by refraining from your selfish pursuits and from making business deals.
Then you will find joy in your relationship to the Lord,
and I will give you great prosperity,
and cause crops to grow on the land I gave to your ancestor Jacob.”
Know for certain that the Lord has spoken.

One Thing I Did This Weekend

My close neighbors had a little baby girl last Saturday.  I thought I would put a bun in the oven for them to enjoy while they enjoyed their New Bun. So...
