silly busy

this week is going to be silly busy. i know this by the fact that i woke up at 3:30, that it's now 8am and i need a nap. i know this by my calendar, by 'the list' and by the fact that vbs will happen every afternoon, whether my list is checked off or not.

still, i am happy. so glad that summer is here, that the warm temps did not leave us forever. thinking about the people who are being displaced by the water. it's strange that i can live so close, yet it seems really far away. i am praying for deann that this week will not be her worst, but that the worst is over by not knowing what will happen.

i am enjoying the small things. like purchasing a 6-pack of beer this weekend, for the first time in over 2 years (i'm guessing here). and making a tomato beer, which tasted really yummy as the temps hit almost 90 this weekend. i hope to drink a few more this summer, in the heat of the day.

i am enjoying my grandma's iris, which mom gave me a piece of this spring (finally). Lord, i need an intervention from the purple, though. what's up with that, when orange is my favorite color?

i am kind of freaking out about VBS, but i did have fun trying out the first night's craft, making butterflies out of coffee filters. we'll have to move fast, but they are pretty fun. did you know there are over 20,000 species of butterflies in the world? now you do :)

otherwise, i am enjoying life a day at a time. that is the only way, really.

Walk in obedience to all that the LORD your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess. Deuteronomy 5:33

happy week, everyone!

I think we're kind of having the same week.

I hope you get to slow down and enjoy the moments. I hope your butterflies turn out. I hope you are as blessed by the little people at VBS as they will be by you. :-)

yes, karen, you too!

i hope that you remember that nobody cares about mulch and that since you are a people person, that is all you need to 'bring' to the party!

have a blessed week!

I've had that set of glasses since college. Still use them every day. Love them. And now a tomato beer with olives sounds really good.

Karen said...

Yeah, I've been thinking of that tomato beer all day...

Mulch is officially done, but they are delivering another FIVE freaking tons of rock tomorrow. Today, I laid brick "pavers" in the rock so that nobody breaks an ankle walking on it. I'm taking lots of pics, will give you a show early next week. :-)
