So true.

"Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work." - Thomas A. Edison

I love the feeling when the sun is shining but you think, "Hmm ... I could probably use some long sleeves!" It's my favorite. So I'm really grateful for this week's relief from the heat. And while I've resigned myself to the fact that cooler temperatures are not yet here to stay, I'm enjoying it while I can.

And besides the actual season change we're all observing, Kyle and I are entering a pretty "busy" season of life, it seems. And while "busy" is pretty much the only word for it, it's a very satisfying sort of busy. The kind that feels productive and not just time-consuming. And I'm amazed at how that's affecting a lot of things in a very positive way. Life is looking pretty good right now.

I'm feeling not-so-inspired on the blogging front this week. I've been exhausted from what was QUITE a busy weekend. And this week has not really "let up" either. So hopefully this weekend, I'll do some catching up on some much-needed rest and ...

until then. I'll borrow from someone else's blogging greatness. Chris Cinnamon hit a HOME RUN on the Journey Church blog this week.

How far would you go?

A Day in the Life ...

Isn't She Lovely?!


... who really knows?! I think my brother is cool.

My husband looks like Win Butler to me in this picture.
I think it's the vest.

... is a bwessed awwangement.

In my family, there are two types of people: Georgia fans and Georgia Tech fans. Roy is the most serious Georgia fan in the family. And the Georgia/Carolina game was Saturday. He was resentful that Amy & Craig made him wear Carolina colors on that particular day. But his Carolina fan friends had a good time at his expense.

The votes are in and ...

Kyle's band had the chance to play at the Music Farm in Charleston on Saturday. They had been invited by the lovely folks at Localx - a Sunday night radio show on 98x that had been playing their CD for the past few weeks - to compete for a chance to record a track for their A Very Local Xmas compilation.

And after an evening of hard-rocking music, the Patron Saints twanged it up and were followed by a group we were quite impressed with called OutTrap.

And when the votes were calculated, the Patron Saints tied for first.

And the radio show recommended a game of Hungry, Hungry Hippos to settle the matter of whose song would be included on the CD and who would win a discounted recording at Fusion 5 Studios. The guys aren't available for said game, so they gave the "rewards" to the other band - Blindsyght.

But the bragging rights ... those cannot be reclaimed.

Congratulations, guys.

Just Keep Plugging ...

The Journey Church has affected our lives in a lot of ways and one of the less spiritual effects of joining up with this group has been the introduction of Harry Potter into our lives. We've borrowed the books from the Mills and have been devouring them over the past few weeks. We've rented all the movies. And since we both had Monday off, Kyle and I went to downtown Charleston to the IMAX theater to catch the newest movie, The Order of the Phoenix. (more...)
