You know what I am doing right now? Taking a PERSONAL DAY. See, we leave for the Maytide Makers Conference (aka, 10 friends who are artists and who want to praise the Name through their songs, photographs, music, etc. and are spending a weekend together to do just that.) and we are leaving around noon-ish. But I just really have a lot do this morning before we go, include rescuing my guitar out of someone's house (would be nice to have for the weekend, eh?) before noon.... ish.
The Garden. Wow, who knew gardening was so fun? It's such hard work--weeding, tending, adding dirt to the barren spots--but it's so much fun. And you feel great when you come in after 3 hours in the garden. I'll have to take a picture to show you, but we've got a strawberry plant smack-dab in the middle of our flower bed by the front porch. While digging up this bed, we found a little green army man (you know the ones I'm talking about, the ones whose feet are connected to you can stand them up) and now, he guards the strawberry plant (which by the way, already has 3-4 little strawberries! It's delightful.
Summer. I'm only going to see Jeff 31 days from now until July 31st. Sucks, right? Yeah, I miss him. He's in Mobile, AL seeing his folks right now, and I leave today so I won't see him until Monday evening.
I don't usually just give updates, partially because I don't think anyone reads this, and partially because I usually blog when I've had some spiritual awakening or am feeling deep about some other topic. But here you go- a regular ol' update. And that's not even the half of it.
Memphis is unique. And so are our lives. This season... mmmm, there could never be another one quite like it.
go and love and serve, friends...
