Where I am...

Where I am at the moment: Sitting on my couch in a dimly lit room - sipping tea, eating one piece of dark chocolate from my friends Lukas & Dita (European chocolate is on a different level from Hersheys)

What I'm currently reading: The Mermaid Chair by Sue Monk Kidd - I got it at the Friends of the Library sale - yay for $1 hardback...not sure what I think yet of the story line, but she is a good writer. Oh, I'm also flipping through my latest Domino magazine - my friend Alyson got a promotion to senior designer & she is quoted this month when the mag asks people who work there what their favorite luxury is...she says, "all-natural, great-smelling cleaning products, especially for laundry." Really Aly? I'm still more of a diamonds girls myself...although Josh will attest that I do take a deep breath when I get into bed the first time after the sheets have just been washed...not so much the smell as the crispness of the sheets perfectly tucked! I love it!

What I'm listening to: At this moment - Brook Fraser's album "Albertine" I'm in need of some good new music...any suggestions?

Favorite funny moment this week - calling Leslie off the stage during worship on Sunday morning to let her know her zipper was down...her face was priceless.

Favorite thoughtful moment this week - meeting Marvin (aka Martin Luther) at Sonic. He is homeless & I had literally just left the Feast or Famine lunch at Pursue where we talked about the marginalized of society and facing injustice. I leave, pull into Sonic, and Martin walks in front of me. I got to buy him an extra long chili dog & coke. The moment was at the end of our conversation. Martin said, "Miss Paige, do you know Jesus?" I said, "Yes I do...do you know Jesus Martin?" He replied, "Yes I do, Miss Paige. And earlier today, Jesus told me that if I would come to Sonic someone would come buy my some lunch." I'm glad Martin & I both listened to Jesus...

Most Favorite moment this week - Asking Dita to go to India with me & seeing her reaction...you had to be there...

What I'm looking forward to: 1. our annual zoe costume party on Friday night...does anyone have a pillbox hat I could borrow? I want to go as Jackie O... 2. an upcoming quick get-away with my hubbie - I think we are going to NM next weekend. 3. Meeting my new niece Molly Kate in less than 2 weeks

Let me know how the book turns out. I like Sue Monk Kidd. Did you ever read Secret Life of Bees? I believe it is out in theaters right now. I am currently listening to the New Life Worship Cd. It is good! JJ Heller is a good one too (Brooke Fraiser type.) Have a great getaway! I heard Pursue was amazing. Keep me posted on Martin, what a cool story.

Have you listened to Sheri Carr's "Fearless Now"? I also just got turned on to Shawn McDonald, particularly his cd "Roots". I think he may be old school though. Finally, Bethany Dillon and Matt Hammitt have a cd called "In Christ Alone." I like it.

The smell of laundry is intoxicating to me.
