April 13th - Sabbath - Day 2 San Diego

Sundays are always my favorite day of the week, and today was another one!  We attended church at Oceanside 1st Ward.  Meeting started at 9:00, and since I woke up very early, there was plenty of time to get ready, eat breakfast, check the computer, and chat for a while, before we needed to leave.  The meetings were all good and we enjoyed meeting some new people.

Back to the condos, we started getting some dinner ready.  We grilled steaks out on the patio, and added some baked potatoes and a big salad.  It was a very yummy dinner.  We all squeezed around the table (made for six, but eight can fit.)  Once everything was cleaned up, we all relaxed a bit, some in one condo, some in the other.

Later in the afternoon, we all gathered back in the other condo for a mission report.  Bill and Shirley recently returned from a Military Relations mission to Okinawa and they had put together a slide presentation of their pictures.  He was able to get his computer hooked up to the TV and working the way he wanted - after some help from Skip.  When it just wouldn't work, Bill finally called our favorite computer guy and they did an over-the-phone help session.  We really enjoyed all the pictures and the stories.  Now we sort of feel like we were actually there with them.  We took a little intermission halfway through and had some popcorn and ice cream.

We then spent some time deciding what we wanted to do this week and managed to pretty much plan out Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.  There are so many other things we could do, but we will decide how to spend Thursday and Friday once we have been around the area a little.  After a good bit more chatting, we finally decided it was time to head for our own condos and get ready for bed.  We ended up sitting at the table in our condo with Richard and Jo Anne and spending another good bit of time talking and laughing.

Getting together with this group of friends is always the most fun - and we are enjoying ourselves immensely.
