April 27, 2010  Woke up at 0600 too late for 0530 early morning prayer. The kind Sisters knowing how tired I was from yesterday's long drive and scary start told me to please sleep in. I really thought I would wake up in time to attend but I again had some trouble falling asleep I think it was the salad bar I had last night before I arrived. It was delicious but I think I ate too much. Finally got up and took Susan's magic potient which did work don't know why I wait so long to take care of things. I did make it to 0800 Eucharistic adoration and Lauds which were both so enriching. We also had communion service. It was wonderful. Next I went shopping in the little gift shop they run where everything is hand made. I could have bought the entire store. The wonderful smells of hand made soaps and  lotions and sprays filled the air. They make their own flavored olive oil and vinegar and many other items too numerous to mention. After that each of the Sisters get busy doing their work all different. They did not want me to help and so I came back to my room read facebook and then some books I brought with me. We had a wonderful meal cooked by the cook of the week. The main dish was a mixture of meats and vegetables with noodles on top. Very delicious. Next I went on a short car drive through the Tongue river canyon. It was gorgeous and of course I took pictures. The pictures do not do justice to sites, sounds, and smells filling the air. Tonight we will have Adoration and then Vespers and then dinner. I will end now because it is getting near time to start. Tomorrow I will leave early for Yellowstone. I had to change my reservations because the entrance I had planned to take is closed. I will be staying in Idaho Falls after visiting Yellow Stone. I will then see the Grand Tetons and back to Idaho Falls for the night and then off to Boise Idaho for a retreat for the weekend. Bye for now
