Stupid summer bounty

To answer you, Brad: yes, I am a little exhausted. I went to bed at 8:30 last night. It was a good first day, but all that adrenaline stopped working around 3:30 and I hit a bit of a wall.

Anyway, I’m here to complain. I’m complaining about summer bounty. I’m complaining about all the delicious tomatoes that people are either giving me or leaving out for the taking. The tomatoes that I love and adore and think are one of the best parts of suffering through summer’s heat. The tomatoes that are flavorful and juicy and refreshing and rather acidic.

Did I mention that canker sore…….?

    Yum! I love tomatoes like that. I had some when I was there earlier. I should see if I could get them from farmers markets here.

It’s the first day of the new school year. Yesterday was very long with an Open House at night (which was very well attended). I feel 89% ready to begin, so that is not too shabby. Lots of other people are starting today, too, so blessings on your upcoming year!

Retreated

The whole ministry staff had a retreat on Monday. It was at Carol Joy Holling park up by Omaha. The facilities are lovely, the food was great, and the work time was ok. The last time we went we had to do a lot of games/team-building stuff outside, which made me tired and hot. This […]

I have tried to remember to take photos over the last few days, but just of some of the more fun projects. I would save these and only work on them for a while after I did some crud jobs, like paperwork. So, from Thursday evening to today, here are some things: One of our […]

Radio Silence

Sorry for not writing much. This is when we have workdays before the fall group begins and I’ve been a little busy. We have a couple of new teachers who need some extra assistance, so I’ve been trying to parcel my time wisely. I work on my own stuff when the building is empty and […]
