Who doesn't love a three-day weekend? Sometimes I think we look for too many excuses to take a day off, but today I was grateful that someone instituted a holiday TODAY! I know we've only had two weeks of classes, but we managed to cram them quite full, eh?
This holiday weekend, while we didn't take it completely off, we did manage to set aside some time for a couple of fun things:
1.) the Ohio State football game -- though the blowout was evident early on, it was still fun to celebrate the start of the college football season,
2.) impromptu Sunday night movie night after Global Cafe` (which we still had 'cause we figured that most folks were still on campus, which they were, and we had a great time with Tim Bailie) -- with the projector still out and speakers set up, we popped some microwave popcorn and found some cold Ale8 and settled in for a guilt-free late night movie with some student friends!
3.) playing with some new actions in Photoshop CS2 on my favorite photos from Hungary! (if you don't know what that is, don't feel dumb, I just learned about "actions" a few months ago myself -- they're basically a very easy way to snazz up ordinary photos)
And while this isn't really related to the subject matter of this post at all, I really enjoyed church yesterday! If you like to download sermons, I recommend you listen to Dr. Elliott's sermon yesterday on the Parable of the Sower (otherwise known as the Parable of the Soils). So many ramifications on the way I think about missions, not to mention the other personal applications! Click here for a link to FAC's audio download page, then select the message for September 3.
Sorry I have no photo today! I guess I was really in the spirit of the holiday and rested the camera as well. :-) Cydil
