the week in review.

Highlights of the week:

Monday (10.5.09).  Joined the elderly of Pittsburgh at the Rivers Casino with my mother.  Won $15.

Tuesday (10.6.09).  Toured Old Economy Village – a National Historic Landmark – in nearby Ambridge, PA, which was home to the Harmony Society starting in 1824.  I saw a cat that looked like my beloved Fred, ate some grapes off the vine, and signed my name with a quill pen.

the harmonists grew grapevines on the sides of their houses.  and they made lots of wine.  they are my kind of people.

Wednesday (10.7.09).  This was a busy bumblebee day.  And my brother’s 2nd anniversary.  I can hardly remember what I did that day.

Thursday (10.8.09).  Stayed up way too late with a wonderful friend.  Crawled into bed feeling thankful for the people in my life, both new and old.

Friday (10.9.09).  After a long day at work, I got to hug my brother.  We stood on opposite sides of the street in downtown Pittsburgh for awhile until the cars finally let him come over to me.  It was glorious.  The evening was a time of reunions, conversation, and delicious eats at one of my favorite restaurants in Pittsburgh – Church Brew Works.

Saturday (10.10.09).  Was thankful that the sun came out after a chilly and windy start to Homecoming at Geneva.  Ben and I had dinner with a family that we love and are inspired by.  Their hospitality, joy, and kindness was incredibly encouraging.  Finished the day by catching up with old friends and making new friends over Yuengling and Harp.

Sunday (10.11.09).  Day of rest (at least a little).  Feelin’ kinda Sunday…watching football.  One of my teams causes depression (the Bills), and the other causes anxiety (the Steelers).

Here comes a new week.  I hope I’m ready.
