The Bavarian Branch

The Bavarian Branch of the family arrive this morning for a short stay. We haven't seen them for some time, and are looking forward to it.  Jacks is coming round tonight to join us in a Thai takeaway.

Two hours of Bible study last night at the Kingdom Hall were the usual lovely antidote to all the horrors going on in the world, and I am wondering how long after my operation before I will be able to get back to meetings.  All our meetings are teaching meetings.  They will link me in by phone line though, so I won't be missing any teaching. I am wondering if I will be able to listen in when I am in hospital - I think you have a kind of private phone arrangement by the beds - but religion is a very touchy subject, so I think I will content myself with taking in my Bible and Watchtower and quietly doing the study article and hoping and praying that I will be back home for the Thursday meeting.

The balcony mint is getting very tall and is flowering. There is a real feeling of the coming Autumn in the air today.  No problem with that.  I love Autumn, and I love the way in which the summer winds down so beautifully into it, but its realising how short the seasons are - how quickly they fly past.  And wondering how many more I have left.

Though I am hoping for unnumbered Autumns in the restored earthly Paradise, so if there is an Autumnal feeling in the air, its a lovely feeling, and full of hope.
