Norma singing with the mariachi band=amazing!!!
So, it's finally warming up; I hear it is going to get HOT again...there is no in between I guess.

I got my out approved, so I'll be home Wednesday afternoon to Saturday at dawn. :) I'm excited to get to use my phone to call people and hear their voice...even if they are on the other side of the country.

Yesterday was a pretty relaxing day off, I sat around and knitted. After Eucharist I was in a porch then went in the sauna. I slept really well...well enough that I slept through my alarm and until coffee break.

I'm attempting to upload photos right now but with my new camera I had to get new software to view the photos and I haven't figured out how to re-size them yet so it's taking forever. Not that you need that much information.

For those of you at Ebenezer, Richard and Emily Edmonds are in the village until tomorrow! Weird. For those of you related to me immediately, Vern and Jean Warmbo are in the village. IT was nice to see Pastor Edmonds in the choir, like some kind of weird flashback.

I've been asked to write about bagel bar. Since last Saturday we were down to 217 people in the village (as opposed to 450-500), we had bagel bar for dinner. It was the most amazing thing I have ever had in my entire life! There were three different types of bagels: plain, cinnamon raison, and parmesian. There were four different types of cream cheese: mint chocolate chip, garlic chipotle, lemon lime, and plain. Then there were toppings like Corn beef (rare here) lettuce, cheese, tomatoes, cucumbers, and other normal sandwhich items. They were so good! I had a parmesean bagel with garlic chipotle cream cheese, tomatoe, cucumber, lettuce, cheese, on it. Then later I had a toasted plain bagel with cream cheese.

I never though I would be this excited about a bagel. SO GOOD!


  1. I can't believe you were up in time to eat pancakes!! Did you and Vern continue your birthday tradition? I hope that this time you bought the icecream.

  2. I tried to buy him ice cream but there was a donation and it was free anyway. He did, however, make me a balloon flower with a separate lady bug that he said I could take off and wear as a bracelet. Oh Vern :).
