The coffee pot is set up, ready to push the 'on' button in the morning. Dishwasher's unloaded.
We're all tired from our first long bike ride of the year, and will presumably sleep like logs. Previously, the boys could out-skate and out-ski me; now, they can out-bike me, too. So it goes.
The house was hot when we got home just an hour ago; I've got the deck doors next to my bedroom open and am enjoying the breeze and the sound of the breeze on the water. Somehow, the sound is more noticeable when it's dark.
Still thinking about what the pastor had to say this morning about how narcissism and loneliness have grown in our society in equal measure; the two go hand in hand. He challenged us to envision ourselves in the middle of a tic tac toe grid this week, and make sure we've met the people in the homes that correspond with the surrounding squares. Better yet, to know something that is important to each of them. I offer you the same challenge for your week.
