Footloose and Fancy Free...
I am remarkably uncomfortable with having any sort of romantic-type feelings for anyone, so I will remain silent on that subject, for the time being. I've got bigger things going on in my life.
The message Pastor Dave delivered today was very good. I so much appreciate his style in how he chooses to deliver what is on his heart. He makes it simple, for those of us who sometimes a little slow on the uptake, and he is very sincere in what he is saying. I also appreciate his humor. Nothing makes me tune someone out faster than if they don't have a sense of humor.
There is nothing quite like the after-church nap that I take every Sunday. It was a habit that started when I was just a kid, and my parents always made all us kids take naps after church. I have gladly carried that habit into my adult years, and I fiercely guard my Sunday afternoon naps. It is very difficult for me to commit to do anything on Sunday afternoon if I cannot fit a nap in there somewhere. Kind of sad, maybe. Then again, I do think we would all treat ourselves and each other a little better if we would make more room for naps in our lives. The world is always so GO GO GO!!! Maybe we need to stop for awhile, and just rest.
After my nap, my sister and I took a long walk, during which I was able to enjoy the sunshine and the perfect temperature. I got just the slightest bit of a tan, also. Perhaps this will be the first summer during which I will not have to hear, "You are so pale! You need to get some color!".
I practiced signing a bit, after finding a few more websites that have a free American Sign Language dictionary as well as video instructions. I am hoping to include an ASL course in my educational pursuits this coming fall, but for now, these websites are very helpful. I am enjoying the experience of learning something new. As with learning any language, there is a lot to learn and remember, but practice makes perfect.
I have a painting in my living room that I have been working on for a week or so now. I am at the point where I thought it would be finished, but every time I look at it, it seems like it is missing something. The painting is meant to have that feeling to it, but I am having a hard time resisting the urge to pick up the paintbrush and add just one more thing to the picture.
I have considered entering the painting in the NAMI art show that will take place in May. I had a painting in the art show last year, and it was pretty cool to have my artwork on display. My artwork was not nearly as organized and precise as much of the other artwork on display there, but I still thought it looked good hung on the wall. :)
Okay, enough rambling. The truth is, I have nothing to write about tonight.
