And everywhere that we can be, Thou, God art present there.

I've been researching Sunscreens. I posted a Dr. Axe article about sunscreen on facebook, and I spent 20 minutes today sitting in the sun. Unfortunately I was wearing my headband, which covers the top part of my forehead, leaving a lovely white section. Good thing I pretty much always wear a headband.

I watched Black Swan last night with Lacy. It's a very dark movie, and it was very well done. However, I don't want to get to the point that the dark stuff doesn't affect me anymore. A story about something that broken should bother you. This morning I was driving to music practice before church and I prayed that God would make my heart soft. It's so easy to stand in front of 150 people and self-protect.

Anyway. I had a great weekend with Lacy. Unfortunately, Dustin was working. So Tyler was the third wheel all weekend. We went to the Schlafly (OK, time out. Tyler is currently singing with the theme song of The Wire, which he's watching for the second time because he just can't let go of the story. It's like he's friends with the characters) Pork Shop. There was pulled pork, beer, and a community garage sale. The garage sale was just OK. Lacy got an old awesome camera for 12 bucks. I found the Chronicles of Narnia book set from what looks like the 70's (same one my dad use to read to us kids), The Never Ending Story, and book 30 of Nancy Drew (what also looked like from the 70's). The guy who sold it to us was hilarious... a true historian of junk. He had two boxes of unopened Wheaties that were fourteen years old.... some cool hats, and some skirts from the 70's that still had tags on them.

After that we tried a new brewery called A Civil Life. We played darts and a weird game where you try to throw a ring on a string onto a bull horn. Then we took long naps, stole our friend's wok and made stir fry. It was amazing, so we ordered a wok. Then we ordered a refurbished Vitamix blender because ours died. After three long years, it shut down on us. Got us through some hard times. Can't wait to have a new blender!

Lacy and I went to the Irish Festival by the river. We ate funnel cake. Ah, sweet regret.

I purchased 7 tank tops and an adorable skirt from Old Navy's 40% off sale. With a gift card and a return, I ended up spending $1.26. Now I can get rid of all my tanks that Tyler hates.

Tomorrow we're going out on a boat. Every single person that will be on the boat works for New Balance besides Tyler. Oddly, I don't picture it as a New Balance party. It's just my friends and they happen to work for New Balance.

I can't tell you how weird it is that I don't have to work tomorrow, and I am so looking forward to it.

I think I mentioned last post that I was reading Mudhouse Sabbath, which I still recommend. I finished it this afternoon while I got my Vitamin D. It was great. I think I'll reread it.
