One Car

It is interesting here on the circle in the middle of July...HOT, HOT, HOT. The aged Volvo's air conditioning is not near enough for my comfort. So, we are virtually a one car household for the first time in YEARS!!!! Not that we really have to both be anywhere incredibly important most days, but just the thought of cranking up the Volvo makes me rethink the importance of my trip. Good way to save gas, huh? Today was Hubby's day out, tomorrow is mine! Sure hope the library calls with my reserved books!

I've just finished reading The Shack by William P. Young. Wow, if you haven't read it, you should pick up a copy. It has challenged some of my core beliefs and made me realize some of the erroneous ideas I have harbored over the years. I "speed read" through the book and finished last night. I am on my second time through and discovering just in the two chapters I've finished today that I may be working on this for a while. Perhaps the most wonderful thing I realized in my read was that relationships are much more important than institutions. I actually knew that, but somehow it got lost in my old brain. So, I think I'll go see what else I can challenge myself with in the book.

I told you about that book...I can't even get past the middle of the book...you know, the chapter "Breakfast of Champions"...I keep reading it over and over again.

Yeah, I know. Like I said, I speed read the first time. I'm taking it a lot slower this time through...coming up on the "Breakfast"...
