It's Monday and I am so tired!


Wow, this has been a long week. We had people over several afternoons/evening this week and we made a heroic pilgrimage to the mall on a Friday night. I am pleased to report that we made it home with the family intact and shoes for both kids. In other news, I played the piano for the entire service on Sunday and there was lots of extra music for that service. Have I also mentioned that we are in the beginning phases of planning a second service?

If you need me, I will be curled up in a pile of blankets with a book, either reading or taking a nice nap. Thanks.

  5. I enjoyed Orfeo. It is Powers' most readable book to date, I thought.

  9. Oooh! I didn't realize Richard Powers has a new one out. Or coming out. I always intend to read his books and then I always get intimidated.
