Pulling weeds and moving rocks yesterday makes me one sore girl today! We worked almost all day yesterday in the yard, but we're finally making some real progress. I thought I was in decent shape, but I'm feeling aches and pains in muscles that I didn't even know existed!
In between loads of rocks and weeds, I also managed to bake two cheesecakes--one Blueberry Swirl, and one Snickers. I think I often show my appreciation for others through baked goods, which is a nice-enough gesture...as long as I can control the urge to sample absolutely everything that comes out of the oven. These two cheesecakes were a "welcome back gift" for my student leaders that I was meeting with this afternoon before classes get started tomorrow. I just hope that it's enough of an inspiration for the busy start of the year.
Yesterday's blessing was the chance to have dinner with a great friend. Actually, I supervised her during her first year of grad school, and always appreciated her for the work that she did and the friendship that developed throughout our time of working together. I got to meet her new boyfriend, and see just how happy she is at this point in her life and her career. She is now teaching kindergarten, and I know that she must be such an amazing blessing in the lives of her students.
