we had some great rain last night! it was beautiful!
okay, my brother is a such a sweetheart! yesterday he brought me lunch after he got off work – just out of the blue – and then stayed and chatted with me for awhile. then he picked me up at the end of the day. even opened the car door for me. he’s been doing that more and more lately. it’s so cute. and he is so stinkin’ talented! last night he was leading worship at caregroup using his guitar. toward the end of the second song, he broke a string. he gave a goofy smile, shrugged off his guitar and said, “i guess we’ll switch to piano.” then he sat down at the piano and proceeded to finish leading worship from the piano! not like i didn’t already know that he could play both – he took piano lessons for like 6 years, then taught himself to play the guitar in like, 2 months – it was just that much more apparent when he had to go from one to the other with nothing but a shrug and a comment in between. i love that boy…
i think the mailman just asked me out… the convo went something like this:
mailman walks into the office. (note: he’s an oriental 30something)
him: “hi how are you?”
me: “good. you know, i got used to the mail coming at 11, and you’ve been coming at like, 10:30 lately. it’s messing me up. i’m not ready yet!”
him: “oh. do you have more? i can come back later. i’ll make a special trip back. i’ll do it for you.”
(yeah so that made me wonder… i started to get a little wierded out at that point…)
me: “oh that’s alright. if it’s not ready to go out i just drop it off at a different box on my way home.”
him: (referring to the Paul Lee’s Kitchen that is being built in the lot next door) “that place is already up!”
me: “yep. buildings are going up fast around here.”
him: “do you like oriental food?”
me: “yeah, i do”
him: “well maybe we can go over there next time.”
(next time? next time what? you drop off our mail?!)
and then the phone rang! praise GOD on high! b/c i am very bad (translate: inexperienced) at knowing what to say when a guy does that. i think i can count on one hand the number of times i’ve experienced something like this…
so i answered the phone and walked back toward my desk. when i got off i made some comment about the caller. the mailman just said, “see you later” and left. whew.
what was he thinking? hitting on the church secretary?! for the love!
anyway, life goes on. my friend ashley is having a girls night tonight! yay! i’m very much looking forward to that. then friday we have college group – double yay! saturday i will hopefully get lots done! my budget, cut my hair, clean the bathrooms, do some baking…
oh look, my cute brother is about to walk in the door…
