This week has been hectic, and filled with lots of firsts. I’ve given up something I seriously crave for Lent (eating out, in all it’s forms even for the one dollar McDonald’s coffee). I’ve ridden the top deck of a double decker bus. I also took photos of my cat in the bathtub because he felt like modeling and I felt like fake peeing. Week 8:
This is my cat in all his handsome glory, and all his ridiculous personality. What else is new. Project 365 = cat lady.
This is a house very close to the teen center that had a horrible fire. I took it while driving so it’s a bit blurry, but it reminded me to really be thankful and appreciative. And isn’t that what Lent is all about anyway?
My best friend moved to NZ last year and so the way that we talk about having babies, naming babies, and our lady mechanics is via the lovely tool of skype. I miss her. She, Sars, does an amazing 365 blog here.
I only occasionally discuss my spiritual journey here.
“Lent is not the time to talk to God, it’s the time to create space where God can talk to you.” – Father Bill
These are just a few of my teens making personal cookies. I love how all of their personalities shine through in this photo.
Holly introduced me to this lovely French Bakery for my first encounter with the Charlotte art scene. If I was a food critic, I’d be salivating over these pictures. If you live around the Charlotte area check out North Davidson and this cozy patisserie. Visit Amelie’s site here.
Abs, Devin and I spent the day hiking at Crowder’s Mountain near Charlotte. This was by the lake filled with fingerlings.
And that’s my happy weekend. I’ll blog about some books and things tomorrow on the bus ride, or at the beginning of the week.
