pretty good weekend thus far. Started off Friday by spending the afternoon and evening with SU, just puttering here and there doing stuff. You know, routine stuff that needs to be done, pool supply store, bank, dropped off some stuff for the church garage sale, dinner at the Don Key, worked on the pool a bit and then we capped off the evening by watching Walk the Line. Just stuff. People on the hip side of life would comment about how boring that sounds but it was actually quite entertaining. Loved the movie.
Then, more of the same on Saturday. Wal Mart to get a few supplies, Pancho’s to get the tires rotated on the beast, then the rest of the day cleaning the pool, inside of the house and bathing the dogs. Also marinated and grilled a rack of ribs but SU didn’t feel like eating at home so we headed out towards Kemah. Tried to get in at T Bone Tom’s to listen to music while we ate but the arena was already full and tables were not going to be empty for a while. A group called Hannas Reef was playing and they are apparently pretty popular; there was a $5 cover, never saw that at T Bone’s before. Greeter said that the fans of this group get there early to get a table and then sit until 10:00 pm listening. So, we turned around and ended up at Chili’s. Pretty good.
Like I said, people in the fast lane are probably turning their nose up at the thought of how boring our life is. But, oftentimes, joy is found in the routine, simple things that make up the majority of our lives. Goes to show that you don’t need to fret and plan something spectacular, just enjoy the moment. That is the beauty of faith in Christ, we are allowed to enjoy our lives as they are, where they are, without having to pretend or long for something that someone else thinks is grand.
Church was good today, although it seemed to be a light turnout. I somehow managed to slip into a not so great mood, I think it was when the pastor announced that they had formed a new committee to recommend a new building program. Not sure if my mood changed because I was jealous about not being on it or because we are going to build again. I’m looking forward to the current committment ending in August and can’t imagine joining up for another large sum at this time. SU needs a new car, 1 probably needs a car with better mileage, 2 needs something (no idea what) and I am starting to want a motorcycle. And the monthly stipend we have been committed to for the last 3 years would easily pay for any of those. But more than that, I’m wondering why we should spend more money to utilize facitities 1/168th of the week. Same thing that has always bugged me aobut building new churches. Good thing I don’t have to decide today.
