Ever since the thunderstorm on Friday night, we've been having trouble with our cable and internet service. Sometimes we can get service only on one computer. Intermittently we get nothing at all. So, last night I listened to the guys talking about fishing up north on the radio (are the lakes a little low? Yah, sure). And I did the dishes which were piling up. And I organized the kitchen more than I have for a long time. I found a recipe that I had been searching for -- chicken ranch wraps. They were quite a hit back in June, thanks to Betty Crocker. But I made the mistake of tearing the page out of the magazine, and have been spending a lot of time since then trying to figure out where I put it. Last night I rediscovered the recipe.
In other news, I've been trying to de-accumulate books from my office library. We'll be having a book sale here in the fall. So I've been "weeding" on the shelves, and discovered a book I was sure someone had stolen from the church library! It was me!
Things are still pretty chaotic around here. There is slightly more counter space in the kitchen. We got the vacuum cleaner fixed. And on the church front, I finally got hold of a couple of people to work with me on a fall event I am trying to plan. Co-conspirators, I like to call them.
But many, many things, on both the home front and the church front, are up in the air. Yes, I'm "living in the tension." I do like doing many things at one time. I never liked just sitting at a desk. But I do feel, once in awhile, that I'm juggling with one too many balls.
I'm working on the computer at church, because the one at home is acting up. The one at church is working, but freezes up a lot. (sigh). I'm sure there's a metaphor in there somewhere.
The weather has cleared a little from the weekend. It's pleasantly warm outside. Inside and around the corner, there are some fellow-travelers, co-conspirators, I like to call them, to share the load.
