Friday Musings

Last night D and I went out for a walk with the dog that he lives with. It was a long walk and then he came to my house where we chatted in my kitchen for a couple of hours. It was so nice and we talked about everything which was really good. A lot about what we want in our lives in the next year or so. Who knows if it will be independent or separate it was nice to talk about things on our minds.

I really think I want to do a volunteer trip somewhere to help a community in a developing nation. D did this a while ago and loved it. I told him I would be very interested in doing something like that for a couple of weeks and then take another week or so to return back home while doing some touring of other nations nearby. What an experience that would be! If not now when I am able to take time off to do something like this, then really when?

Today I have the day off :( I have been contacted by two people so far to ask if I would like to run a Sparks group in my town. However I would be the sole leader and I have never had any interaction with the program so I think I will tell them I would be willing to help out where needed but I don't want to be the only one doing the job.

It's been kind of a boring day so I think I am going to head to the grocery store soon to pick up some things to make a nice dinner tonight. I want to attempt to make bread in my kitchen aid and a lasagna mmmm. I'll let you know how they turn out.

Tomorrow D is going to another wedding and I am going to go to a pig roast with my family. Sunday a girl I went to high school with is having a goodbye party at her cottage because she is going to teach in England for a year. It will be nice to see some of those girls I haven't seen in a while. Those are my plans, hopefully you all have an exciting weekend. Enjoy the fall weather :)


  1. I'd love to take a volunteer trip to help people too. Where would you like to go? I've always toyed with the idea of doing a Habitat for Humanity type thing, but I'm a clumsy and not very hands-on person so I might just be a nuisance.

  2. Ashley I think they would accept anyone willing to help and would put you in a role that you would be comfortable with. I always enjoyed my construction classes in high school. I would love to go to central or south america but I'm really not that picky.
