As we went shopping at 8:00 am the temp. was 29C.!!! For those of you who don't know, for Calgarians, that would be right up there as one of the hottest days of the summer! The strings winds that we've been having are gone and it seems more humid - it is apt to make you feel a bit sick! There is a big Farewell meeting tonight for Pres. and Sis. Charles, so the couples were asked to bring "finger-food" for the occasion. We made up 40 deviled eggs and a bunch meatballs, purchased some chocolate cakes and cookies (it was simply too hot to put the oven on) and juices and water. We did fit in some office jobs as well during the day. The Farewell meeting was bitt/sweet as you can imagine - they are such lovely people. We have learned so much from them and have grown to love them dearly. They both spoke at the meeting followed by a visiting leader from Germany. The couples set up the finger-food table where, after the meeting, everyone gathered for eats and visiting.
This is one of the views I'll be posting of the trees with the orange flowers - don't know the name of it!
