We hosted an open house at the manse this afternoon, inviting the members of the congregation to come and enjoy the hospitality of the home they provide us with. It was also an opportunity to showcase the new floor in the kitchen.
It being the middle of summer with people here, there and everywhere, the turnout was sporadic, but at least the house is clean. Even the office has been tidied, organized even. There is clear working space on the desk and papers have been appropriately filed away.
We'll see if it lasts until our winter open house. My prediction? No.
