Hoosier Musings on the Road to Emmaus

Monday, June 07, 2004


Yesterday was a good start to the summer. Worship services went well at St. Mary's, with 16 people in attendance-- a real crowd, for this tiny congregation. We all went out afterwards, and my family and I were treated to an amazing brunch buffet.

Then we piled in the car and headed east to Fort Wayne. The oldest child of some old friends graduated high school last week, and so we drove over to join the celebration. Though we haven't seen a lot of each other in recent years, we've known Glenn and Heidi since we were all newlyweds. I worked with Glenn at Timken (first jobs out of college, for both of us), and we lived in adjacent buildings, back then-- spent a lot of time eating, and talking, and playing together. It was great fun to surprise them, and wonderful to see the beautiful young woman that Colleen has grown to be.

However, it did make for a long day, so it was good to stay home for today.

What did I do on my first Monday home for the summer? I cleaned. Actually, we all cleaned. Not a favorite activity, but boy, did our home need the attention. It's not done, but it is vastly improved, and no longer in danger of condemnation by the health department. This week, interior work; next week, the yard. By the end of the summer, it might actually look like someone lives here.
