It is already Friday which is hard to believe. I have had a busy week. I went rowing with the team that has a new member, Ruby, who is the unofficial coxswain. She is a good boat dog having been introduced to rowing when she was a puppy.
I've been to several meetings this week. I got something from each one. One of the meetings is going to have a group conscience to talk about changing the format from all open discussion to having a step, a tradition, a literature topic and one open discussion meeting every month. I find that I get a lot out of step, tradition and literature meetings. But whatever the group decides will be okay.
I met with a fellow i sponsor for lunch. We talked about having a workshop at the house this fall. My wife thinks it's a great idea. Having a group of recovery friends at the house for all day meetings and lunch will be fun.
Today we left on the boat for the long Memorial Day weekend. Some friends have come by to join us in their boat. We just got back from the beach and are grilling shrimp and fish on the gas grill.
All is well here. There are many campfires burning on shore. The smell of burning logs is being carried on the breeze. We have citronella candles burning to keep away the mosquitoes.
Another tropical storm is rumored for the weekend. I hope that isn't so. But it will be nice regardless because it is so peaceful to be here.
