Several on Saturday

1. This was a week of pastoral extremes, a reminder that ministers are often called into the heights and depths of human experience. That's all I can say about that.

2. We got our first CSA box this week, and I can already tell it's going to be a fun foodie summer. The big wins so far were the salsa (green onions, garlic scapes, black beans, cherry tomatoes, and lime), and the salad I had last night, which was admittedly stolen right off the Trader Joe's sample board (bitter greens, honey goat cheese, strawberries, dried figs, and balsamic glaze).

3. I'm improving quite a bit as a runner. My running group has decided to add sprint drills and distance runs, and after just a couple weeks of this I am already running faster and longer. I can't decide if I want to focus on becoming a faster 5k runner, or if I want to train for something longer. All I know is that I love it.

4. We are finally getting around to putting more pictures up, now that we've been here over a year. Marie gave us these beautiful photographs for Christmas. It took us awhile to figure out where to put them, and how to put them up, but I think we nailed it. Or, I should say, picture-hanging-stripped it.

5. Ben has been writing again, which makes me very, very happy. He has always been and will always be my favorite poet. You can read his recent work here.
