Morning, everyone. What a change in the weather! We had some very heavy rain all morning yesterday although it cleared and we even had a little bit of sunshine later. Today looks like a mirror image - dry in the morning (no sun predicted though) and rain in the afternoon and through the night. And it's very much colder than the weekend. I'm back in my oodie as I type this.
Yesterday started with a lovely exchange of messages with a dear friend I've known since my early Open Uni days and stayed close to ever since. She's been living in Germany but is back in the UK now and is coming over for a Christmas weekend in December. As she's an early riser, like me, we sometimes have these early morning 'chats' and it's lovely.
I dodged the raindrops running from car to hall for Groove for a thoroughly enjoyable class. Lindsey plans in half term blocks and I really like this current block; it's a bit challenging but lots of fun.
After that, it was home, James, for breakfast and into some clearing and sorting and some more crocheting. I've just realised this Sunday is Stir Up Sunday, so called because the Collect for the day starts with the words:"Stir-up, we beseech thee, O Lord, the wills of thy faithful people;
that they, plenteously bringing forth the fruit of good works,
may of thee be plenteously rewarded; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen."
