Sunday, April 25, 2010

April 25 2010  I woke up this morning at 0550 and had a nice warm cup of coffee and got dressed and headed out to find the chapel for Sunday morning praise. I think I was the only one staying the night in the main retreat house which, by the way, is so cozy it reminds me of a bed and breakfast place. The walls to my room are slanted giving it a very cozy feel. I have two beds in my room that are both very comfortable. I slept in both because again I was having trouble falling asleep last night. I think I went to bed at 9 pm to read and then fell asleep sometime after that and must have gotten up in the night and moved to the other bed because that is where I woke up. No I wasn't drinking though I have thought about writing a story similar to Gregs about his late night with bintang but decided no one would believe me anyway. So I will just stick to my own adventures. So I found the chapel just in time to participate with some help from the sisters. Then to Mass in the beautiful Church. After Mass I came back to the retreat house and read e-mail and facebook and reread my route for tomorrow to Wyoming. Then it was time for lunch with the sisters. Three lovely sisters joined me and they even made me speak at the microphone and tell of my travels. We had an outstanding lunch of pot roast, mashed potatoes and gravy and carrots and broccoli, I had been craving pot roast and there it was. We also had a salad bar and we got to eat all of it didn't have to choose between salad bar and main meal. The sisters and I exchanged information about our background and how we arrived at this point in our life. Wonderful time of fellowship. Sister Immaculata asked if I wanted her to navigate a tour around Colorado Springs and I jumped at the chance because I wanted to strike out on my own but was afraid of getting lost. We went to the Broadmore hotel  and took some pictures which you will see at the end of the story and then on to 7 Falls and the Garden of the Gods. I kept thinking I had been to the Garden of the Gods but I can't remember when. Ski trip??? or something. Any way the day will finish off with dinner with the sisters  and then home to pack my car and off again tomorrow. Bye for now, hope all is well with all friends and family
