Hey there, Internet friends. It’s been a crazy few days around here.
Friday and Saturday: the Southwestern Minnesota Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America gathered for its 25th annual synod assembly. I thought that would be more intelligible if I spelled out the acronyms, but it appears this was not the case. Basically, a bunch of Lutherans got together for a big meeting. I’ll tell you all about it soon.
Sunday: Worship. Nap. Two episodes of Mad Men. But not the season finale, so let’s not discuss it!
Monday: Pastoral visits with Zoe. Worship planning. Litchfield Library. First night of Vacation Bible School out at First, where Zoe had a blast and I debuted my “young, hip, and very rich” look for the skit. Here’s how it turned out:
Pardon my awkward pose. And expression. And the fact that I can’t give you a full profile shot tonight because there is no good spot to stand in our house. Luckily, I’ll be wearing this outfit every night for the rest of the week, so I should have a few more chances to get a good photo.
Here’s how the outfit came together: A cute dress, scarf, and cardigan from my closet. A pair of shoes that are Toms-esque, but actually Target brand. A men’s hat, also from Target, selected by my fab friend B, who took me on the finest shopping date I have been on in ages. (Shopping without a screaming kid and with a fun friend? Truly luxurious, dear people.)
So, that’s the new news in Litchfield. What’s keeping you busy these days?
