On Friday night, I had dinner with these terrific women. (I'm in the back row in the blue sweater.) Donna
spent a couple months coordinating a Disneyland weekend for everybody, and it all got started with dinner at Mimi's Cafe. I was so happy to see Shelley
again, and to meet Lisa
and Donna, whose blogs I have been reading all along. It was also fun to meet new (to me) waiting moms. I didn't join them for any Disneyland adventures, but word has it they've been tearing the place up over there!
Then, yesterday, Buffy and I walked four miles through the 'hood. I am appreciating the beautiful park in my neighborhood more and more, as half of my walk is on the path through the park. It beautiful, really, and it's great to see all the families out making use of its open space and facilities. I bought a new pair of walking shoes earlier in the week, and now that I've got a better pair of inserts in them to support my arches, they are really comfortable.
And, I signed up for bootcamp
! Ack! What have I done?
Actually, I'm really excited about it. My session doesn't start for awhile, so I've got time to psyche myself up for it. It's a four-week experience, Monday through Friday, for an hour each day. I'll be ready for Kauai after bootcamp. Oh, yeah!
Last night, a friend joined me for church, and then we met up with another friend for dinner. It feels great to have the time to attend church again. I love my church
! And, I started a personal Bible study earlier in the week. I'm working through Beth Moore
It's neat because it's designed to have the reader write reflections on the subject and their own personal experiences as they complete each lesson. I like her writing style, and I'm enjoying learning more about King David. The only thing I can criticize is that the author assumes her readers are all married women with children, and so some of the questions come at you from that point of view. When she writes a question from that perspective, I'm left with not much to reflect upon. I wish Christian leaders/author's would wake up and realize that there are many single Christians, and to word things more generically so that we all feel included. Anyway, that's just my opinion, but I think it's valid...
I hope you are enjoying this beautiful weekend!
