Welcome to what used to be called Three Thing Thursday back when I posted on a more regular basis. The last time I posted on a Thursday was May 19, which is a sure-fire sign that things have been busy around here, to say the least. Three Thing Thursday is where I share
Even if what you're thinking is, "Will CBW ever actually move this blog post along or is she going to lull us to sleep as she drags out this opening paragraph from here to
I'll go first.
1. Last night marked the first time I've ever arrived at a sports banquet--or any banquet, or any school related function of any sort for that matter--in a canoe. Yes, Chesapeake Bay Son's end of the year soccer banquet was held at his teammate's house, which happens to be across the creek from us. CB Son, delicately balancing the family's contribution of fruit salad and Pepsi Colas, took a kayak. Daughter and I took the canoe. We ate, we clapped, we laughed and we ate some more. Then we hopped in our boats and paddled back home. Now that's my kind of sports banquet. Not one minute wasted behind the wheel of a car and not one drop of gasoline used.
2. Oh, do I have a story to tell! Remember a while back when I referenced a mysterious package left for me at Sandpiper Reef in Hallieford? Well, over the past week the mystery behind who left that has slowly unfolded, and the entire story fills my heart with joy. After I survive the next several days I'll work on putting the words down, but rest assured this story --which began over 25 years ago--is one of my favorite Life Stories thus far.
3. The good Lord willing and the creek don't rise, by this weekend I will send the first draft of the book on Mathews to the editor. That does not mean all the work is over, but one huge hurdle has been cleared. I used to be a pretty good hurdler back in the day but this has been one tough race. Amen.
Now it's your turn to share three things. Whatever you want. Anything at all.
Thanks as always for stopping by and leaving your thoughts. They make my day.
