:: Monday, April 29, 2002 ::

Weakened blogger. I'm such a slacker when it comes to blogging on the weekends. There's just too much to do. I spent a good portion of Saturday writing in the more traditional manner -- i.e., sans hyperlinks -- and then Sunday was a full day. Between church services we had:

1. a birthday barbecue for my mom-in-law, at the church. We had scrumptuous grilled burgers and kielbasa; skillet-fried potatoes, with and without onions; some of Jana's exquisite barbecued ribs; the pastor's baked beans; all kinds of salads and desserts. I'm telling you, these ex-Southern Baptists know how to fix a meal! *Yummy*

2. The final day of a three-day "kids crusade," the first of the season. Tim, who can preach up a storm with kids and teens, holds these crusades every summer. Last year, our church purchased a tent for him. Now he's expanded and has developed a little mini-carnival, complete with one of those moonwalk tents. A lot of the teens in our church are involved in these crusades -- doing face-painting, helping to lead the singing, testifying in the grand old tradition of American pentecostalism, and just providing a supportive atmosphere for the kids. I spent most of the afternoon there, and the party was still going when I had to leave by 4:15 to attend...

3. A wedding shower for a couple in our church. The shower was held in our church fellowship hall.

So now I must needs recuperate. But, being as how it is Monday, the world of work isn't being very cooperative.

I realize this isn't the usual snappy, hyperlinked prose you've come to expect from bloggedyblog. But I'll try to get back on track later today, or tomorrow. I've found a bunch of nice sites to add to the blogroll, plus other blogworthy tidbits. Stay tuned!
