Sabbath Day

July 19, 2012

Offered hospitality to a good friend last night.

Slept in a bit this morning.

Dan surprised us by taking off before breakfast; his dad was really early. Offered a prayer for his job interview today.

Wrote an important email.

Played ‘Sir Guy’ to my son August’s Robin Hood. Swords clashed.

Dropped August off at camp.

Checked the GW garden – picked a zucchini!

Got a haircut.

Starbucks coffee, the City Center fountain, and 20 minutes with a good book.

Finished the bulletin for Sunday.

Spent some time on my sermon for Sunday – important since I am solo dad this week while Noelle is at the Churchwide Gathering of Presbyterian Women in Orlando.

Read a bit on historic  gardening techniques.

Picked up August at Cranberry Lake Preserve Ecology Camp. Hung out in the woods. “Discovered” quartz.

Shared two slices of pizza (pepperoni and white) at The Iron Tomato on Mamaroneck Ave, followed by a “chocolate gelato emergency.” Met Grace, Talia and Katharine on the Ave., shared stories, joys, and looked forward to Sunday.

August and I paid a visit to Becky, the woman who cut my hair, to explain that Cranberry Lake is named because it is the only place in Westchester (and possibly New York) where wild cranberries still thrive.

House cleaning, designed a new sheath for August’s knife, laundry.

Got an answer to that important email from the morning.

August read me “Dinosaurs, Dinosaurs” and half of “Ten Apples Up On Top.” Lot’s of laughs and snuggles. (I heard this week that the average six year old laughs 300 times a day, while the average adult laughs about 15 times). Many laughs on the way to bed.

A lovely and surprising conversation with Noelle. I am so proud of her; of my whole family (August learned to tie his own shoes this week.)

A bit more work my sermon.

“Buffy the Vampire Slayer.”

Prayer and bed.

Shabbat Shalom.
