Buzzing the hotel

I'm having a low-key day today. It turns out that when you spend all day in the sun, snorkeling your little heart out, that even if you use a lot of SPF 30 waterproof sunblock, you can still get a mild burn and sun poisoning. I've never said I was infinitely wise.

Thus, today I am in recovery mode. I'm feverish, nauseated, and have had absolutely no appetite all day. I did manage to drag myself out of bed around 12:30 to go get some after-lunch ice cream, though. And iced tea. That's about it for the day.

In brighter news, we had our second research flight a couple days ago, and at the end of it our pilots had it organized that they'd do a fly-by of the hotel, complete with cameramen alert and at the ready. I believe that someone said we were flying at 85 feet! Here are a few of the shots they got. They might not seem that interesting, but to all of us who work on the plane, they are wickedly cool. They are going to try it again tomorrow, flying in lower and slower, to see if we can get the shot.

Hmmm... I'm actually feeling hungry. That's a good sign.

I prayed for you and Keith this morning. We're looking forward to his little surgical adventure this week. I prayed for you to feel better quick. Please pray for Meg too, as her tummy hasn't been feeling all that well for the past 4-5 days.

COOL PHOTOS! But I still want to see more of those red crabs. ;-)

FYI: The new church has a name: Christchurch. Like the city on the South Island of New Zealand or the college at Oxford. The 20-somethings think its really cool. I like it because it might help us point people to Jesus and it has church in the name.

Thanks Scott and Meg. I am feeling better - the fever broke around 9:30 PM last night, and although I was awake from 2 until 4, I knew that I had plenty of sleep the previous day and that I'd be fine today.

Life is good...

And I love the new name, Scott - Christchurch is very cool. Thanks for looking after my boys this week. That means so much to me - and tell Meg I'm thinking about her and I hope she feels better, too.
