There is literally nothing to blog about. Well, okay, maybe a few things. But nothing coherent. Let's see...
I leave for Florida in a little over a week! I'm pretty excited to get to spend a few last days with one of my best buds, Andrea B before she relocates. And we're going to see Bon Iver, which is awesome, to say the least!
I have officially lost 6 lbs. following the Weight Watchers point system. It doesn't seem like much, and I haven't seen a vast difference in the way my clothes are fitting. But one thing I have started to realize is how poorly I've been eating! That's being remedied by lots of fruits and veggies.
I'm getting ready to start reading a book that I bought about a year ago. It's called Light Force: A Stirring Account of the Church Caught in the Middle East Crossfire.
I have really high hopes for this book! The Lord has given me a heart for that region, not only for the people who live there but for the local church here in good ole U.S. of A to cast down the veil of ignorance that has been passed down from generation to generation and to develop a genuine capital "L" LOVE for the M.E.
So I'll let you know if it's any good. To read more about it click here.
Here is a recent picture of Dusty and me. We've been married for one year and 8 days. Impressive, eh?
Here's a recent photo of Gabby and her daddy, JP. This was taken at JP & Aubri's percussion ensemble concert and if I recall correctly they are dancing to Thriller while this was taken. I hate that Gabby's face is so bright, but she is smiling!
Ah and really that's about it. OH! Also, Rudy the Cat With Thumbs ventured outside for the first time today. He lasted about 2 minutes and then clawed the door until we let him back in. If you were a fly on the wall and heard D. and me talking while he was out exploring you'd think we'd just sent our only child to college:
Me: "I'm nervous..."
D: "Yeah, me too."
Me: "What if he doesn't come back?"
D: "He'll be back. We have his food. We just need to let him explore" *sideways glance at me* "Let's go see what he's doing."
And there you have an account of the slow life out here in the sticks.
