Random Thoughts

I’ve been a bad blogger lately. But I’m not going to beat myself up over it (much). I was even trying to encapsulate the last two weeks, and this is what I came up with.

1 - My 11-month freedom from migraines is over, and I had a 5 day low grade migraine last week. That takes a big chunk of out my functionality.

2 - We’ve had VBS (Vacation Bible School) for 100 kids here all week. After such a quiet summer, this has been a shock to my system. And proven to me another reason I don’t like being on reception.

3 – We went to a wedding last weekend. I actually thought I would have a chance to dance with my husband, but the music/dancing didn’t start until after 10pm - too late for an old fart like me. I have NEVER danced with my husband. We had an afternoon wedding. Maybe I’ll get my chance at my nieces wedding in October.

4 – I haven’t got much sleep lately. Pirate has a habit of wanting to ‘need’ me between the hours of 3 and 5 am. And by the word ‘need’ I mean crawling up on the bed and burrowing his little head into my neck and hair, and nuzzling me like he would his mother. This licking, sucking, burrowing, and paw needing all accompanied with a loud purrrrr. It is possible to be cute and annoying at the same time.

5 – I was awed and amazed at the response to entry on to boil or not to boil (a hotdog) that is the question. I never realized such a silly little topic could garner such varied, and plentiful responses. Thank you – that was fun stuff.

6 – I am woefully behind in my card making. I haven’t quite finished making the 6 cards I need to make to send off to Laura who won the “Great Summer Give Away”, but – under extreme pressure – I did manage to make the card needed for the wedding we attended. I need a ‘muse’. I must find a ‘muse’.

7 – I had a wicked 2 hour session with my psychologist last week - this may very well have prompted the migraine, but it also prompted some very deep introspection. How is it possible to love and hate something at the same time? Thankfully – God is with me every step of the way.

8 - As much as I’m a stubbornly clutching to the vestiges of summer, I’m looking forward to life/work coming back to a balance of normality. Whatever that looks like. With September comes a new ministry season for the church, and with that comes new challenges, energy, and excitement. I love my work, it has been, and continues to morph into something new for me. Learning how to balance what three people used to do in this office will be interesting to say the least. I’m up for it, but only time will tell if I will be able to manage it well. Even in this though – I know that God is with me, and promises to be faithful even when I falter and question.

Well …. ? How’s that for random thoughts.

I’m off to Pender Island to visit my girlfriend. It’s Pender’s “Fall Fair” – what an oxymoron!!! Who has a ‘Fall Fair’ in August – only an islander!

Happy Friday everyone.

P.S. I finished Harry Potter book 7 last weekend. Now I'm on to "The Golden Compass" by Philip Pullman. Yummmmm - good reading!

Sounds like you have a fun weekend planned. Fall's almost here in a couple more weeks, but Yeah, it does sound a little early.

Hope you are able to get relief from your migraine soon.

Take care.

Glad to have an update from you, even if it was in bullet like points. :P I loved the part about Pirate being cute and annoying! Teehee. Have fun with your girlfriend at the fair. I know fall is not quite technically here, but the weather sure makes it feel like it!!
