Did not make it to church today. Partly because I’ve been feeling pretty shoddy this weekend. It’s frustrating because I’ve missed communion, again. And it’s weird asking for a pastoral visit from your own husband. Sometimes I think – who is my minister / pastor? Officially it is Andy – but Andy is Andy to me, not ‘the minister’. If we attempted a pastoral ‘visit’ we’d probably both get the giggles.

The other reason I didn’t make it is the joys of my routine versus the clocks going forward. We are now in British Summer Time. Mmmm. Well, at least the sun has been shining today. I adjusted my rests slightly today to ease myself in but it’s all very awkward when you are on a strict timetable and the time itself changes. So have been feeling somewhat all over the place.

There are various trains of thought meandering through my mind (a scary prospect, I know) but I do not have the ability at this moment to go into them. So I shuffle them away into the teapots in my head where they will brew until they are ready to be poured out.

Just to clarify, I don’t really think there are actual teapots in my head. It’s one of those analogy type things. You know.

    Sadly, we didn’t get to church either this week. We ate something the night before that disagreed with us and spent much of yesterday morning getting rid of it. Ick.RYC: Yes, the frog exhibit was really neat. They had dozens of frogs from all over the world on exhibit – one was about as big as a small melon, and another type was no bigger than a fingernail when fully grown. The sheer variety of God’s creation fascinates me.And no, I don’t think you’re a bad person for wanting to touch/be near the animals, too. 🙂 I’m exactly the same way. If I’m in a situation where they’re allowing people to touch an animal, I’ll take advantage of it as soon as the kids are out of the way. And generally Mike and I go to zoos and other animal exhibits as early in the day as possible to avoid all the little kids and have a less stressful experience. Unfortunately, we visited the frog exhibit on the day before Easter, when everyone was vacationing, so it was hard to avoid crowds – or obnoxious parents with little clueless kids.
