The story behind the pictures.
My little basketball player started basketball this week.
I was up way to early on Sunday.
But I did get to see this, so it wasn't all bad.
I had to be there early because it was my week to work in the A/V booth.
It was a two travelling coffee mug kind of morning.
Oh my goodness, it got cold this week.
Ugh! If +32 degrees is freezing, what is -32 degrees?
Crazy, that's what.
It's like ice, ice baby.... stop! collaborate...
But the summers (both months) are totally worth it.
That's what we tell ourselves.
Bring it, Cold Temps!
You don't scare me and my scarf of many colors.
This has been my standard uniform this week.
It's cold in our house, but I'm nice and warm.
Yeah, that's right. I'm wearing three sweaters.
I'm starting a trend.
I'm too hot to handle, too cold to hold... wait...
Like I've always said:
"if I had to choose, I'd rather pick cold because you can always put more layers on."
Although I confess, taking layers off because I'm too hot sounds really good to me right about now.
It's been sub zero temps here in Minnesota this last week.
Sometimes we wonder why we moved back here and dream of moving somewhere warm.
Or at least vacationing somewhere warm... especially in January/February.
But I try to put a positive spin on things whenever I can,
so I sent the following email to my husband this week:
Reasons to love living in cold weather:
1. The two car refrigerator.
2. No need to brush hair - just wear a stocking hat.
3. It's invigorating.
4. More snuggling to stay warm. Promotes healthy relationships.
6. Fires in the fireplace.
8. Hot beverages.
Care to join me in finding good reasons?
To which he replied:
1. I need to eat less, not more.
2. Beach bums obviously have no problems either.
3. A drink on the beach when its 80 where you are, and -5 where others are, is pretty invigorating too.
5. Torches on the beach.
6. Bonfires on the beach
7. Spread out on the beach
8. Coffee over the cool ocean breezes isn’t bad either. !
Consequently, during the month of February, we are accepting invitations to visit anyone who lives in tropical temperatures.
It was a good exercise for me and brought about some good conversations with my honey.
It was a little bit scary to write out my dreams because I hadn't ever really done it before.
I think I avoided it because I didn't want to feel like a failure.
(That's my discouraged perfectionist coming out.)
I also wrote about the time when I really did forget to wear a shirt to work.
Some people dream about it, I actually did it.
This week's topic in the study I'm doing with my friend is Patience.
I couldn't wait to get to it!
Patience in circumstances is tied to endurance which is tied to hope.
Patience with people is tied to mercy.
The mercy/patience is the fruit of the Spirit kind.
It's good stuff.
So, that was my week.
How was your week?
