The Reckless and Irresponsible Purchase of a New TV and Other Birthday Gifts

I asked Douglas what I should blog about, and he suggested the above title.

We've been very busy around here and my birthday was a bit neglected, or rather, the giving of a gift was postponed. So Saturday Douglas decided that we should take care of my birthday and buy a new television set. Its not very fancy as far as televisions go, but to us, it feels as though we have come up in the world. (We have not.) So now I can enjoy LOST with a clean picture on a 32" screen from the comfort of my own bed. Sounds pretty good to me. Thank you honey, it is a very fun birthday present!

My other birthday gift, is a bicycle. It is actually an old bicycle from my sister, Amber. But it is new to me and very exciting! I especially love that the bike is bright yellow, dubbed by my friend Liz, The Hornet. I have been riding my bike to work everyday. It's only a two mile commute, but I love the feel of the wind in my face. Riding a bicycle gives one a sense of freedom. I must make quite an image though, with my little backpack and all my fluffiness! But I keep pedaling along anyway.

Next time, I'll write a quick update on the boys. They are growing up so fast and Mason is such a crack-up!

A new blog

Considering that I have a great deal to write about these days that is not really family related I have decided to experiment with having my own blog. One dedicated to all things pertaining to The Constant Process and also to religion, ethics, aesthetics and of course film. For what ever reason these things are all closely related in my mind. My first two posts are an announcement of the screening of The Constant Process at the upcoming Sunstone West conference, and a short essay on finding ways to be brought into community.

Check it out here. and link it up.
