A change of plans

I got another oncall call this am. This time it was at 4:30 am (and I did not have to go in). So I was up early.

I was debating whether to go to 8 or 10 am service. Energy level decreed 8. I decide to re-caffienate so that the quiet, reflective atmosphere in the chapel would not make me sack out snoozing on the comfy chairs, much like Brigid the church cat.

I was showered and dressed at 7:40. I had even put my phone on buzz. I decided to check my email right quick-like for sheer kicks and grins.

There was a message from the deacon. As I was not expecting something from her, I opened it right away.

Well. There is going to be a wee bit of a surprise celebration for the rector's round-number birthday this coming week. At 10 am.

That was worth changing my plans for. I've spent the last hour doing the things I was planning on doing at 9 am when I got back. And I've definitely got a "second wind" kind of energy boost.

Birthday parties are always so fun. Enjoy your day! I'm working on my photos and will give you and bronica a food n' garden slide show at some juncture, featuring pictures of Versailles and the Rose Bomb.

The delicious dark chocolate cake helped with that energy boost thing. Now I am off to a foodblogger's picnic. Looking forward to tales of La Bombe Rose and your other adventures.

How was the party? And how are you feeling?

The church thing was more like "coffee hour with cake" but it was a nice social time.

The foodblogger's party was terrific.

I am going to sleep very, very well tonight.
