Before our church service started this morning, the pastor asked me if after her sermon I would read the poem I read for the conference last weekend; I had e-mailed it to her, & she had printed it out & brought it along. Her sermon was very thoughtful. People really responded to the poem, again, & there was some wonderful "sharing" afterward (during which people come up to the mic & make comments or ask for prayer).
For lunch I joined a group of friends from another online community I've been involved with for nearly 3 years. I was meeting all these folks for the first time in person, but we had plenty to chat about; it was fun.
Later my husband & I resumed our extended weekend date: we went to see the new Elizabeth I film & then to an Indian vegetarian buffet restaurant for supper.
Between these various places, I ended up walking quite a bit today, so there's some cardio. And careful choices meant that I went over my calorie allotment by just 100, even though it was all restaurant food. (Breakfast was leftover brunch food from yesterday!) No point for that in our new team system, but no disaster either. :-)
It was a very social but peaceful & satisfying day.
