Long day. There was the moment where i questioned why we bother doing the work we do when someone with a super powerful support account cc'd me on a e-mail saying, "I've been told not to make accounts for people so here is my username and password." Argh!

So then i had lunch and felt better.

But still, long day.

I did go lead midweek worship, which was a pleasure. I should volunteer to lead more often so i get in the habit of going.

I admit, my mind wanders to homesteading fantasies that blend into my meditation images. I have a meditation on "clearing the spring," but instead on meditating, i was imagining. I imagined building a springhouse, digging into the slope the spring emerged from, using the soil to make bermed walls, planting old fashioned roses around the spring house, imaging a weeping willow and cat tails outside the springhouse, imaging the scent of roses in the sun on a hot summer day and the cool in the springhouse, and redwing blackbirds singing in the cattails.

This is worship, i think, but i don't know i can explain it. Is it about an idea of Edenic peace and perfection? A sympathy with the act of creation?

The ginger ale and peach vodka says it's time to close my eyes.

I'm not a liquor gal, but I have to say, ginger ale and peach vodka sounds pretty tasty!

I've gone to liquor because i don't like to drink a lot. While that sounds counter intuitive, it really works out. Opening a bottle of wine is a commitment with which i rarely want to follow through, leaving bottles of beer for weekes on end in the fridge is annoying. A bottle of spirits though will just sit in the cabinet -- months -- and be just the same. And i can mix as strong or weak a drink as i like.

And, yeah, the peach and ginger go together swimmingly!
