Larry and I celebrate a milestone this weekend and we didn't even get to be together! Everybody say, "Awwwwww!" He's working this weekend. He's the agape leader for Kairos and they're doing a walk at Central this weekend. I am so proud of him and his commitment to Kairos and his role in telling others about Jesus that I don't whine much when a weekend like this comes up. I just worry that it's too much, that he's not appreciated like he should be. Heck, if they paid him $100,000 to do it, it wouldn't be enough for me.
Our milestone is 23 years since we met! September 25, 1988. A Sunday. This is what we looked like back then! I just barely remember being that young. I think I look better NOW at 44 than I did at 21. He looks the same. Fine as muscadine wine in the summertime. ;)
So I've been hangin' at home this weekend, resting my foot. It feels a lot better today! Wanna see? Okay, well, maybe it doesn't LOOK any better but it does feel better. I think that stuff I got reduced the swelling some. Plus, I've had it propped up most of the weekend, too, and I'm sure that has helped.
I worked a little while yesterday morning and then I went and saw the movie, Straw Dogs. I loved it. An hour into the movie, I was cheering for the bad guys because the two "victims" were just stupid. The girl was a brazen hussy, plain and simple, and the guy, smart and sweet and peace-loving as he was, just got involved too much. Yeah, I'll say it. They pretty much asked for it. The main bad guy was my Eric. He can do no wrong in my eyes anyway. :) It's a great movie. Had me on the edge of my seat the entire two hours and left me with my mouth hangin' open at the end.
I slept late this morning and then I got up and cooked!
Beef tips, rice and gravy
Homemade mac and cheese
Here's some cobbler next to the peach ice cream
that Daddy made for me earlier in the summer.
I guess it's not really goodbye, summer. More like so long. Farewell. It'll be warm here until November and be hot again in March!
I love Georgia. The Lord knew exactly where to put me.
