Joining Becky for...

Keys to the Cottage
  • Baked two more batches of cookies for Sunday School Class rewards (for memorizing scripture!)
  • Thought I was smart for making enough Chocolate Chip dough to put in the freezer to be ready for next time.
  • Discovered I wasn't so smart after all. Now they want Peanut Butter!
  • Went on a lovely drive up into the mountains to a 'once remote Dam and lake'. The road is partially paved now and the camping area was totally full.
  • Shared a lovely picnic lunch with the Gentleman Farmer at said lake.
  • Took a different route home and saw a herd of elk in a farmer's field. (This made Gentleman Farmers' Day!)
  • Went to Gentleman Farmers 40th Class reunion.
  • Taught Sunday School
  • Listened to another great sermon.
  • Took a wee 'siesta' with the Gentleman Farmer on a blanket in the shade of the old Maple tree. (Because we were tired from the late night at the reunion!)
  • Am content!

I'm sure that you are a great blessing to your Sunday School class.
