Happy Friday, friends! At last we finally started to dry out after 8 straight days of rain last week…only to get more wet weather around the middle of this week. Sigh. While I am in no way rushing summer along, I would like some Spring-like weather. Or at least one more snow day.
This week felt very hectic for some reason but whew, I made it! On Tuesday, I met up with two friends from college who live in the Triangle for Appalachian Night at the Carolina Hurricanes game. This was my third-ever hockey game and I must say, I think I like this sport. It was so fun to have bits of my college experience sprinkled throughout the night – complete with our mascot Yosef, part of our pep band, and the chorus even did the national anthem!
Wednesday evening, I watched an training course on evangelism that was put together by my church and it was really interesting! My Wednesday night group is one of two that I just recently joined, bringing my total up to three small groups. Whoops. I’m prayerfully stepping back though from at least one in order to try and create some more margin in my weekly schedule but I’m super grateful that the Lord answered my prayers for more opportunities to cultivate community here in Raleigh!
Thursday I had another workout with my trainer – I just have a few more sessions left! These eight weeks have flown by! While I do have slight anxiety about going into the gym “on my own” without his guidance, I am kind of happy to be able to have some flexibility in my schedule once I don’t have to factor in someone else’s calendar and availability. I think I tend to thrive more with routines and rhythms and currently things feel a little up in the air. The gym will still be part of my weekly rhythm though twice a week.
This weekend, I’m glad to have some margin built, especially after a busier week than usual. This evening I have an oil change scheduled for my car, which is not that exciting, but I scheduled it at the shop that is across from my favorite Lebanese/Mediterranean restaurant Sassool so that part is exciting!
Have a great weekend!
