Lunch and scarecrows

After a morning mainly spent pottering and emailing, I went out for lunch with Angela. We went to Thornton Hough, where it is the start of their scarecrow festival.













After we'd had a look round we had a lovely lunch of chicken in a mushroom sauce followed by carrot cake at the Seven Stars. After that I went and spent a very pleasant afternoon with Kathryn. Then it was home to put the tea on to cook before popping round to Angela's to print some programmes for WWW. Now I need to prepare a bible study for tomorrow, all about suffering!

Ah, suffering. I hope you came up with some good ideas.
I love the scarecrow festival. Not something you'd see around here, huh! Looks very peaceful and pleasant.. and sunny!! I love the Dr Who one!

The scarecrow festival was really lovely, very rural and relaxed, and yes sunny too!

Didn't do the suffering thing in the end, when I arrived at the group someone was there who doesn't normally come and I just knew that they wouldn't cope, so I turned over the page and did the next study about the presence of God instead!!

That is so good. You're a gem!
I think in situations like that, it's important to be sensitive to the needs of other people. There just isn't any need to push people over the edge just because you want to follow the plan, huh. I find that in class sometimes. The things I have planned, I can see they just won't work when someone arrives stressed or angry!

For anyone interested in the scarecrow festival, there is an official web site. There are loads of photos from last year, but this year's are still to be posted.
