Friday musings...


Sitting at the completely clear & clean kitchen counter, coffee nearby, preparing for blog-age is one of my favorite things. Esp. on Fridays, which is my day of rest.... I love it. Along with brown paper bags, wrapped up with string of course...




I'm really, really looking forward to my first Aces game - hopefully 4/18... Preliminary weather report: High of 68F, low of 40. No rain, light wind.

So say we all!




Life is simpler without having to put up a pretense to try to impress others. It's at least less work. I want to "be comfortable in my own skin,"... I think that's how Bono put it...




As background, I occasionally have blood sugar issues - when I don't eat often enough, or don't get enough protein, my blood sugar plummets, as does my outlook, mood, demeanor... you get the picture.

On that note, kids are funny. And pretty quick learners too... we were having an interchange with theWeez about a particular series of choices she made that resulted in us needing to have a "Talk." Obviously, didn't fully appreciate how the "Talk" was going, & further, had issues with the method of Presentation that I had chosen. But rather than take it up a notch & try to argue, bluster, or complain, she just said:
"When was the last time you ate? You should eat something, & then we can talk..."

Nice.




Easter is this Sunday... I'm looking forward to it - the story of redemption never gets old. And I never want to just go on 'auto-pilot' & mail it in either, just because its Easter. May I never lose the wonder...




NOTE: No rocks were thrown during the writing of the following paragraphs...

Easter, along with Christmas Eve, seem to be times where churches are more prone to troll for newbies using the "Be Our Guest" scene from the Beauty & the Beast Disney film... where we put our best on, place our best foot forward, with the best music, best speech, & best egg hunt for the kiddies. All in the space of 70 minutes... & just in time for the next best service.

It seems to be more designed for a christian culture than for one of pre-christians... to attract christians from other churches to come & see. I ponder consumer-church... Hmmm...

END NOTE




I was asked out on a date, for tonight, by theBean. Don't know where we're going - it's a surprise. I'm going to do my best to make myself extra pretty... :)

3 launchings into the blogosphere....:
