My Week in Sketches

7:14 AM

I loved watching the logic of a 5-year-old try to sweet-talk a 4-year-old into playing keep-away.

I was super-annoyed that the local sporting goods store only carried ridiculous, neon-colored cleats...and ONE pair of black ones. I took my business elsewhere.

I went to a lovely wedding on Saturday. It was so fun to see my friend so happy.

At church on Sunday, we were instructed to look into the eyes of the person sitting next to us for a few moments, for an illustration. Hellllooooo, awkward eye contact.

My coworkers and I are going to a conference together, and I've never been more excited about anything ever.

Our office has a little courtyard in the middle of it, and my coworkers and I had a picnic out there on Wednesday. It was adorable and tasty.

We had a movie night in my friends' backyard, and it worked out great! We set up a movie projector, so the kids and dads watched "Peter Pan" while the ladies got to chat. It was great, and some much-needed girl time.

 My friend helped me cut some wood with 45-degree angles with his fancy new saw. I can hardly wait until one day I will have a huge garage filled with power tools.

My friends and I went swimming in Lake Arrowhead, which is my FAVORITE thing to do! That lake is paradise, and it was great to be there surrounded by so many friends.

 Lake Arrowhead, Day 2! Spent more time in the sand and less time in the water, with delightful company.

 We played charades at my small group this week, and at one point I had to get everyone to guess the movie "Annie" which was fantastically easy.

My friend came to spend the night, and she told me about the crazy show "Married at First Sight," and then we had to watch an episode. We couldn't look away.

I finally saw "Frozen" all the way through, and now I'm obsessed. I don't know how it happened. But my coworkers keep catching me listening to it at my desk.

My friends and I spent an evening talking in really, really low voices...
I can't explain this stuff. It seemed really funny at the time.

July 4th was AMAZING. My friends and I went to Dana Point, where something called "Water Wars" takes place - a thousand little boats of people attack each other with water guns and buckets. It was insanely fun, and unlike anything I've ever done. It was THE BEST.

My friend from out of state had been visiting California for several weeks, and finally had to head back to Colorado...but she'll be back in December!

I walked with a limp on Sunday. This was because I had stand-up-paddle-boarded for the first time ever on July 4th, which required using muscles I didn't know existed. Two days later, I was walking with a limp, though I preferred to act like I was somehow wounded during Water Wars because that sounded tougher.

Back at work, sometimes I get to make large meal purchases for big groups of people. 

Our office is shaped in a square, with a hallway that is one big loop. Whenever I'm going back and forth to the copy room, it's like I'm running in circles.

In our staff meetings, we sing a nerdy welcome song to anyone who is new on staff. We sing it all as a group, but this week we had one very eager staff member who started singing the song to himself before we were ready.

Last week I got to hang out with some friends at the summer camp where I used to work. It was the first time I've been back on grounds since I left in January, and it was a fun little homecoming.

Some friends came over to my house, which was fun because one of them hadn't been there before.

I went to a wedding and we got into a lot of mischief at our table. Lots of laughing.

I went to my church's picnic the next day, and was happy to sit in the heat with friends.

I loaded some giant, metal 8-foot shelving units into my car. It always makes me proud when my little SUV can carry huge stuff. Yes, just like Mary Poppins' bag, the one she pulls a lamp out of.

I went to a Dodger game with my dad, which I loved.

Rallying the troops to unload a U-Haul...Not the most fun task, but it's always nice to feel like we're doing something together as a team.
