Some observations from yesterday and today.
It started with this: Taking The First Step
It continued with a picture of a Father’s day gift that was back ordered, but has since arrived…in Charlotte. I get it on next visit.
After having to meet a contractor at my soon to be “new” office, I came home and Megan and I went to the home of friends who are out of town and raided their garden. (Of course it was with their permission and encouragement). While the blueberries and figs were not ripe yet, we did come away with some tomoatos and basil. Megan had the idea for Caprese Panini for dinner.
They were exquisit.
Even though the band is in hibernation, I played for awhile, using another of my Father’s Day presents.. a very unique and encouraging guitar pick.
I visited with a home-bound friend, watched a little golf and enjoyed some wine.
Being true to my impulsive tendencies, I decided two years was enough and I shaved my beard off and am once again, smooth faced.
I also received another belated, Father’s Day present, which I am wearing this afternoon. The message is telling.
Attending church for my scheduled hour of Perpetual Adoration early this morning, I caught this shot as I arrived. That hour each Sunday morning, gives me some quiet time with Jesus present in the Blessed Sacrament.
I picked up my friend (mentioned above) and took him to Mass this morning and then he treated me to breakfast at IHOP.
I am getting this done now and then have a few chores to complete before my wife returns from her visiting family in NJ for the past few days.
Thinking about it, I had some good balance and an interesting surprise was that the post in which I stated I was slowing down received the second most views of any post since the blog began in January of 2010…almost 400!
I realize that for some of you “real bloggers”, 400 is a slow day, but for me it is roughly three times the normal traffic.
Go figure, but I think Steve Landry (@landryst) and Kurt Harden, (@hardenkurt) may have had some role in the numbers.
Those that know recovery understand, it’s about progress, not perfection and you can see that I enjoyed a diverse weekend.
PS…What’s with the WordPress rainbow header on the admin side?
