Well, the weekend is proving to be busy!
On Thursday evening, I was able to spend time with my daughter and her family in Birch Hills, Saskatchewan. Three grandkids are a handful – and a handful I would be more than glad to have around at anytime.
We ate together and enjoyed exploring new cell phones that had been bought. I went for a walk with the two oldest grandchildren in the rain – amazing how shoes can hold as much water as the last puddle they stepped in.
From there I headed to a wedding rehearsal I was overseeing. The rain of the weekend plagued us all the way along. This was to have been an outdoor wedding on a beach in Northern Saskatchewan – a place called Waskesiu. Instead we all ended up inside enjoying close fellowship.
Friday night was a family gathering – at least for me this was the new family I will become an official part of in a month’s time. My reason for being there was that I was officiating my “to be” nephew’s wedding – this was the rehearsal party.
The next morning, Saturday, the rain continued. By 10:00 we were off to set up the alternate site – a beautiful rustic hall, then the wedding, then the reception and by 8:30 in the evening I was back on the road, headed to Airdrie where there is a concert tomorrow. This past evening I was able to get a few hours of sleep here in Kindersley and as I write this I am preparing to head out to a concert in Airdrie this afternoon.
On the road again!
