On Saturday morning the weather was perfect. When I get off from work at 10:00 A.M. it was 60 degrees! We decided to go for a walk around the lake after getting some Bojangles grease in for a late breakfast!
Taylor brought Molly so she could go for a walk with us. I'm so glad we went. Not only did we get some much-needed exercise, but we just really had a nice time!
After we went home, I laid down and CRASHED. I knew I was tired, but I had no idea how tired until I woke up three hours later!
Then we went to Taylor's parents house for dinner. My mother-in-law cooked a yummy meal for us and then we watched Field of Dreams. Its one of Taylor's favorite movies and I had never seen it! It was so good! A little strange, but REALLY good.
TODAY was an adventure. I slept decently last night, but I had some bad dreams and was kind of disoriented. Then I went to church and the sermon was amazing, but I was really emotional and tired, which is not a good combination when trying to apply an excellent, but challenging spiritual truth to your life. The way I was feeling really had me down and I wasn't really myself, but I eventually got over it...especially after a little bit of prayer followed up by going paddle-boarding.
Oh man! Paddle-boarding! I have seen a lot of buzz about it this summer and Taylor and I have been saying for about a month that we would try it out and today we finally went. I was nervous that I would embarrass myself, but I ended up doing way better than I expected. I was able to stand up on the board fairly quickly. The first time was incredibly wobbly and I fell off within about five minutes of standing up. Each time I stood up though, I got better. The last time I tried, I paddled almost the whole distance we had gone on the lake while standing up. I was so proud and I had an amazing time. Taylor had fun, but my love of water far surpasses his, and I don't think he was as into the boarding as I was, but we both had a good time together. I can't wait to do it again! :)
