I could actually wear a sweater or a jacket to church this morning! Last night I walked into the monthly nightwatch gathering at C.'s house, carrying my apple pie, it was in the 80's. When I left, it was in the 60's and the wind was blowing the leaves around. It was glorious. It is also glorious that C. is back. The last time I was at nightwatch at his house, his kids were little boys... now one is at college and the other is a junior in high school. C. stopped going to meetings, but didn't get drunk - thank God, but now he is back and we're all really grateful.
Today my son and his friend (the electrician) will install my new light fixtures! I am so excited to ditch the old stuff, and a little nervous about how the new ones will look. Some of you understood my excitement over a chicken chandelier - I am glad I am not alone.
I am going to have to have a refresher course in baseball. I used to watch it, but that has been a l-o-n-g time ago. But suddenly everyone in Denver is a baseball fan. Go Rockies!
I better get ready for church. It is a beautiful Sunday morning and I am looking forward to a beautiful sober day... and wish the same for you all.
