I am ...

... wilting from the heat. {Even in the blessed coolness of this basement apartment, my body is not deceived, realizes the full force of the heat outside and, well, wilts.}

... just finished reading "Velvet Elvis" and "Sex God" {a little different than one might expect}. Very worth my time.

... STILL creeped out by my midnight viewing of "The Dark Knight." Were the Batman movies always this dark? I don't remember them being so. The Joker completely messed with my mind and I left thinking, "oh my goodness. I think I need a nightlight tonight."

... looking forward to camping with my beautiful friend Kim and her spunky kids the first weekend in August. {The other day, her 9 year old son, Tyler, was stalking butterflies in their backyard with a BB gun, wearing a camouflaged bathrobe and sporting his summer buzz cut.}

... being grateful for the wonderfully random gift my friend Joe brought back for me from Kauai. One might expect a Lei or a Hawaiian printed something, but, o. Not so much. I am now the proud owner of a blue refrigerator magnet that has an image of crossed fingers on it. Above the image is printed, "Me and God are like this." I'm glad my faith is a never ending source of amusement and wonder.

... contemplating some pretty big life changes. Living in Vineyard Town was always supposed to a be a short term plan. The longer I'm here, the more I realize that there's probably something different for me. Of course, I don't say this lightly. As I'm about to start looking for jobs in metro Pacific Northwest, my heart rate is increasing just a little. Of course, at this point, I don't have anything to lose. And, what's that? Grad school, do I see you becoming more of a possibility?

Many blessings on your week this week. Stay inside. Or go swimming. Drench each other with water hoses. Drink some lemonade.

Be happy.

    Oh yay! Another Rob Bell fan! I've been meaning to get my hands on a copy of "Velvet Elvis." Maybe I'll have to come steal it from you. :) As for your wilting, perhaps I shall stop by with a glass of water. ;)
