Retreat (riˈtrit) A retirement or a period of retirement for religious exercises and meditation.By the time you read this, I will have left for a retreat weekend with a group of women from church. The retreat officially starts tonight after dinner, but since I'm part of the organizing team I have to get there early and set things up.
Although we've been working on the retreat since July, this week has been a flurry of last-minute activities. Each day I've gotten multiple emails from different team members, reminding me of things not to forget. Be yesterday, I had a large pile of shopping bags in the dining room.
Last night I started packing my suitcase and getting my things together. The weather will be beautiful, but with a forecast for temperatures in the low- to mid-70s, it's hard to know if I should bring short sleeved or long sleeved shirts. I packed both, including two "church" outfits for Sunday. I've gone on week long vacations with a lighter suitcase!
Time to load the car and get on the road for my adventure!
