Trading my ashes for beauty….that He might be glorified.
Good Monday Morning 8.29.22
Happy Monday friends! I hope you had a nice weekend. I apologize for being a bit behind in responding to comments and/or visiting blogs. I have not been on the computer this weekend but I am looking forward to catching up this afternoon. I look forward to seeing how everyone is enjoying these last days of August. A bit of an odd time: mentally, it seems like it should be fall but, reality hits and, it definitely still feels like summer! That said, here are some things I learned this past weekend:
1 – it is still summer! It has been hot lately. Normally the grass would be mowed this weekend, but it is parched. Brown as cardboard. We need rain. And, I am officially over my summer clothes. I can’t count how many times I whined, “I can’t find anything to wear” this past weekend. Sigh.
2 – Southern gospel music just makes my heart happy. And makes me want to sing:) Three girlfriends and I went to a concert this weekend. The Tribute Quartet. Goodness, I had fun…and had to bite my lip more than once in order not to stop myself from singing out loud!! There is a true performer just buried within me!!:) We also had a great meal just before the show….which also makes my heart happy! It was a happy night!
3 – my sanity depends on my keeping my hair short. I have been trying (rather unsuccessfully) for the past 7 – 9 weeks to let my hair grow out a bit. Every day I simply wanted to pull it all out! FInally, I had a proper haircut this weekend. So much better. I cannot risk wasting any bit of sanity I have trying to fix my hair. It is going to stay short.
4 – I am bad at golf. As in, really bad. We played Top Golf this weekend. Well, three out of the six of us played golf. The other three? I’m not sure what it would be called – but it wasn’t golf. Not sure if my attempted swings were entertaining, embarrassing, or just plain annoying? Whichever – it was tons of fun (truthfully) but quite sad.
5 – fried onion straws, apparently, take any dish to a new level. I do like them (really) but Matchbox is super serious about their onion straws. A plate of three sliders came with at least four cups of the garnish. Maybe you had to be there, but it was rather funny!!
6 – my brother is the best (the best!) gift opener. You could give him a refrigerator magnet from your last vacation and he would, genuinely, make you feel as if it was the best gift he’s received in years! He is a lot of fun. I, on the other hand, need to take some lessons….and seriously need to work on my gift-opening skills. I try but, after this weekend, I know I have a long way to go!
7 – time with family and friends plus a few great meals equals a great weekend!! My Monday is starting off with scripture assembly at church but, this afternoon, I am looking for some introverted recharging. Aka, time to myself!!:) Hope your Monday is off to a great start!!
