I get that question a lot. You see, my vacation started today after church. Where am I going?
No contest. I'm going to my favorite place in all the world. HOME. As in the St. Paul's parsonage. We wanted to arrange a trip away, but the kid's conflicting schedules ruled it out for this summer. So, I'm just going to take off two weeks and do some fun things:
Deb and family are there till Thursday and we'll be doing plenty of visiting!
I plan to go to the library and sign out several books and read them - I haven't been able to read much lately.
I plan to do some worship planning for the upcoming quarter - I usually do a year in advance but transitioning to the new hymnal made that impossible.
I plan to spend some time watching some DVDs - I hardly ever turn on the TV and I plan on kicking back and watching a movie or two.
I plan to visit some neighboring churches to hear the preaching of the Gospel and receive the Sacrament.
I plan to spend one day at the waterpark in Wood River.
I plan to spend one day at Raging Rivers in Grafton.
I plan to play some pinochle.
Sounds like an odd vacation, I'm sure, but my idea of the perfect vacation is the one where you get to stay home and enjoy the comfort of your own bed and eat your own food. "Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home."
