An actual day off. Huh?

I've turned in all my ordination materials, which I've been working on since June. This coming Sunday is Laity Sunday, and a very gifted member is preaching the sermon. So if Claire doesn't decide to come before Friday, I'll actually have a day off that doesn't involve doing church work. I'm having trouble processing this concept in my brain. So I ask you, dear reader, what should I do? How shall I spend a true sabbath?

Cool Stuff up for Auction!

I think it's blog protocol to put up an apology/excuse if one has gone more than a few days without a post, so sorry I haven't been blogging much lately. I know the literally tens of people who read this have been starving for more of my musings. #sarcasm

The truth is that I'm knee-deep in finishing ordination papers, which I'm hoping to have turned in before Claire arrives. You'll be seeing lots of coverage of her birth (the cute parts, not the gross parts) here and on Jessica's blog.

But there is something cool for you to check out right now! As part of Arlington's Harvest Celebration, we're auctioning off donated items to raise money for building repairs. One of the items is so cool, we just had to put it out there for everybody to have the chance to get.

It's a basket full of CMA stuff, including four tickets to the taping of the CMA Country Christmas Show at the Bridgestone Arena on November 10.

We have two of these baskets and we've put them up on Ebay, and you can check them out and make a bid on the Ebay widget we have on the Arlington homepage, or right here!

No commentary (for once). Just some things to ponder.
