A bright, bright sunshine-y day

AREN'T THESE THE BEST?? Kathryn gave them to me because she is THE BEST DATE.

Guyyyyys! It’s been so long since I posted! This is why:
First, I was sick. Then I interviewed for one job (phone interview, good thing because, shoot, I was sweating. Real talk. Holla at my homegirn Chum), was hired at another, semi-led and prepped food/ loding/ crafts for a retreat, wrote a few monologues, and started a new job.

That’ll wear anyone out, I feel.

I ate a bunch of vitamin C, though.

Here are some pictures!

Friday I went to lunch with some ladies from work. A good time had by all. 🙂

580-retreat

Friday, Saturday, and Sunday were spent on retreat in the countryside. It was a lovely time of prayer and fellowship.

It always strikes me that those special times of retreat and pilgrimage are what I most desire but can never seem to perfectly attain in daily life: balance and connection and laughter with good friends. Well, I’ll keep trying.

Nothing like some good grace to redirect me to a better Lent. 🙂

Now I’m off to plan the Camino some more. Eventually I’m going to ask for prayer-partners for my pilgrims abroad. Would you be interested? You’ll be asked to keep a pilgrim in your prayers in a special way and they’ll do the same for you. 🙂 I’ll keep you posted.

Also. This play. A new play. I’m a wee bit excited, and I’ll share more later. For now: it’s about the women who encounter Christ in the Bible.
Get ready.

Also: Frank-the-man-who-lives-on-the-street-by-my-work broke all of our trees. He has his own sense of order and one day I walked to my car and I saw him. He was breaking all of the branches that he could reach, so I called out to him, “Hey Frank, what are you doing?”

But he just looked at me and walked off with purpose.

Seriously, guys, there are so many trees and he literally broke ALL of the branches he could reach. I don’t know why, but I find this amusing.

Happy Monday!
