I am embarrassed to admit that I actually like the shorter days of autumn. Seriously! During the long daylight hours of summer, I need to be outdoors from sunrise to sunset. When darkness hits about 6:00, I treasure evening in the cosiness of our home.
This was one of those crazy, fun, exhausting, wonderful weekends. My younger sister has been visiting from Alaska, and we were able to get much of the family together. Great food, lots of laughter, and a game of extreme four-square rounded off the day. 🙂
Here it is — the day before Holy Week begins, and as a church musician, I am swamped, but loving every minute of the season. Even though we aren’t getting a blizzard – and all the snow/ice is gone – it’s still a perfect day for SOUP!
I never have to look far to find a reason (excuse???) to invite people over for a party. Someone’s birthday? Let’s party! The house is clean? Let’s party! It’s above zero degrees? Let’s party! Taxes are done? LET”S PARTY!
We got married in 1988 – the year for goose cookie jars (we got 3, kept none), glass platters with matching bowls, and everything else was blue and brown. Thankfully, we were not part of the mushroom set, or the sunflower set. If you’ve been married more than 30 years, you know what I’m talking about.
I love playing in the band at church. The talent on the platform each Sunday is enough to blow my mind, and we have a blast together. The only drawback is the crazy-early rehearsals.
