Favorite things III

Another favorite thing of mine: long holiday weekends. I’ll take one of those anyday, especially when the holiday is on Monday, which makes the week so much shorter. By the time you hit the mid-week blues, the week is over – sweet!

Yesterday (Memorial day), we went to the beach. Something we never do, usually. I remember the first time I suggested it to my husband – he looked at me completely bewildered, as if I was speaking another language (I think his exact words were “you must have me confused with someone else”. Either that or “huh?!”). He came around very quickly, though, and off we went to Daytona Beach Shores, with a picnic lunch and a big white 10’X10′ tent, which I nicknamed “The Oppressor” because of the way it made all the colorful little umbrellas around it look so puny and pathetic. Hey, there were 6 of us, and have you seen my family? I’m the runt, right next to my 11 year old, and she’s catching up fast!

My favorite part was people-watching. I could do that for hours, and I did! Here are a couple of pictures I took (yes, I figured out how to do that!). Enjoy…

    Alright now, PASTOR Joseph! Remind me, what was that scripture that talks about what to do if your eye causes you to sin? ‘Cause I can help with that!
