Hello friends and happy Friday! Marc played golf this afternoon and I relished the quiet to finish up a few must-do’s on my list (mostly for church). Now I’m settled in to write this post, listening to a “not quite fall” playlist (Spotify link), and drinking a decaf latte … happy sigh … this might take a little longer than it should 🙂
Thinking about … what superpower I wish I had. With Katie’s help, that’s the ice-breaker I’m using Sunday morning to open our new small group. The topic for this first class is “God” and it feels like a fun way to start … and hopefully break the ice! My wishes tend to run pretty traditional – flying? traveling from here to there with a blink of an eye or the snap of fingers? What’s yours?
Grateful for … living close enough to the boys to be making plans to see (nearly) all of their baseball and (for Charlie) home lacrosse games. Both seasons kick off tomorrow and – weather permitting (ugh, the forecast looks very rainy) – I’ll see two baseball games and Marc will see a lacrosse game and a baseball game. Also, hoping I’ll be grateful for all the PT … to be knitting something while I sit in the bleachers!
Inspired by … this Booker Prize post to read Treacle Walker (Booker link) and re-read Small Things Like These (Booker link). The winner won’t be announced until October 17, so I don’t even need to upset my September reading plans. Three of my personal short list titles made the Booker’s list, but honestly, my reasons were very different. I’m welcoming the growth opportunity.
Fun! … I mentioned last week that Marc & I were headed to Sara’s Saturday morning to hang lights and pictures. Happy to report all went well, even with our three math-brains solving the numerous “where do I drill? hammer?” questions from three (very?!!) different perspectives!
and one last photo … here’s the hydrangea I shared last week. looking even more autumnal.
as always, wishing you the best weekend available. xxoo.
