What a wonderful weekend! I got to spend time with an old friend, whose birthday it was, and there were high points to contrast with low points (or rather, points to contemplate)
First of all, old friends, friends that have known you a long time and still love you, are precious gifts from God....it was so great to get to be together, and pick up where we left off the last time we were together.
Bad news: my friend's cat had killed a hummingbird ( a HUMMINGBIRD!) and its little tiny feathers were strewn across her back porch, a poignant reminder of how fragile life is.... so sad...
I got to make a baby laugh.... that is always a wonderful thing.
I got to attend my beloved Texas Aggies' football game, which was the agony of defeat ....
BUT, Kyle Field's new configuration was VERY impressive, and 110,000+ attendees were part of the largest crowd in Texas, as well as SEC, history.... I didn't even eat any of the stadium food!
BUT, on the other hand, I tasted tailgating food until I was full, three different tailgates!!!! I DID manage to stick to manageable fare like fajitas and elk shish-kabobs, and even fruit for dessert... (FRUIT, at a tailgate!!!! I was SO blessed!)
Later, I found uneaten cookies in my pocket!!!!! I don't know how they got there, but they went in the trash when I got home.... That was close!
Oh, and did I mention that my good old friend and I had a blast on Friday, hiking the woods near her house and kayaking for an hour on the lake near her house....it won't be too long before the kayaks will be too cold an adventure for me, but last weekend was perfect, not too cold, and not too hot...
I am blessed.
