We Made It!

1.  That's right!  Church happened this morning!  Thank you for your support and encouragement, folks.

2.  Could I ask a favor?  If you've got the notion, I could use your prayers around 4:30 tomorrow (Monday).  There will be an interview happening then, and I could use the support.

3.  After church, Nora and I played at the park and ate BBQ at Chez Bubba.  That's right.  At 11:30 this morning I was eating chopped brisket, mashed potatoes with gravy, and ranch style beans.  Now that's what I call breakfast.  I was ready to herd cattle, clean the house, write a novel, drill for oil, pick up heavy stuff, dig random holes in various locations, bake 10 loaves of bread, and give birth to a couple of kids after that meal.  Nice work, Chez Bubba.

4.  Nora and I went back to that train place down the road from us.  And they had a museum, and...I'm so excited about this, I can hardly think about grammar--there was a restored log cabin from over 100 years ago inside the museum.  I wish all of you could visualize how wonderful and strange it is to have something like this just four miles from my house, in the middle of nowhere.  I don't know.  I mean, for those of you living in the city, you have cool stuff all over the place.  You want sushi, you go get sushi.  You want opera, you go get opera.  You've got art and museums and...sidewalks.  And, you know what?  I love where I live.  I wouldn't trade these fields for any of those things, but I'm glad to know there's a little county museum just down the road, and it tells just as much about this human story as anything you can find in those other places where people lived stacked on top of each other (which is also kind of beautiful, but something I can't even imagine doing again.)

5.  I'm four days away from reaching the one year mark for the blog challenge.  All I can say is that habit wins over inspiration any day.  You may have noticed that from some of my less than stellar posts.  (Ha!)

Be well, everyone.  God loves you.
