I am going to visit my sister-in-law in Half Moon Bay. I look forward to waking and seeing the ocean, and some visiting of course. She had been undergoing treatment for stage 4 breast cancer and her spirits have been good. I am praying for good news when we talk and that the treatments have been working. I leave around 6 in the morning and will be gone until Friday.
While I am gone my husband and a friend from church are going to lay new flooring in the kitchen and dining area. I pray it all goes well, and am anxious to see it when I return. We will have to look for some kind of area rug to put under the dining table and chairs. It is a massive black walnut table over 60 years old. So the hunt will begin. Tonight the room is bare, however my familyroom doesn't have much room in it and I have a freezer in my livingroom. Tomorrow he will move the refrigerator and so before I head to bed I need to clear somethings off the top.

The women at our church go to a christian women's retreat every year. It has always looked like a lot of fun and I have wanted to go. However, it has always fallen on the same weekend as our big family reunion, so you know where I went. This year the retreat was the weekend before the reunion so in spite of the hustle and bustle of the wedding and planning I was able sign up. Needless to say it was an amazing time!!
The view from the dining hall.
The camp is home to over 20,000 young campers and teens during the summer. I loved the way the chapel was set up for the kids.
The first morning we took a shuttle to a place called "Inspiration Point" for breakfast. What a fantastic view. God is a marvelous planner!
The worship band "Deanna Ramsey Band" was amazing. She has a 4 octave voice. The guest speaker was Debbie Alsdorf, and she had a incredible story as well.
It was a wonderful time with other christian women, going to different seminars and doing different activities. (and not cooking) It is so nice to come home feeling refreshed and renewed.
