With Meghan gone this week on her North Carolina trip, it’s been somewhat challenging to keep my time at home from being a bore. Life is just better when you’re together I guess, to quote a Jack Johnson song. But the time at home by myself has also been a good chance to experience a change of pace in my normally hectic, busy life. I’ve had more time to do some of the things that always get crowded off the to-do list because they are not as urgent, like going for a run, practicing the piano, pulling up weeds and dead things in the flower beds, reading, and yes… even blogging! Today, after I got home from work, the thought hit me to go out and take some pictures of some of the flowers that have recently bloomed around our yard. I’m not usually much for taking photos of flowers since its so overdone (at art fairs for example), but I tried to be creative with it and appreciate the natural beauty that God gifted to each one. Here’s a few to share with y’all.
Later on in the evening, I helped a couple from our small group, Nick and Jen, pick up a couch set from the furniture store and set it up in their family room. We had a great time together and they even provided me with Donatos pizza for dinner. One less meal to make for myself while Meghan’s gone. Thanks guys!
On to Saturday and a weekend where I have absolutely no plans and plan on keeping it that way.
