Father's Day

Today is Father's Day. It turned out to be a pretty decent day - slow starting but with a nice finish.

First off, I woke up at 6AM, threw some clothes on and drove to church. Did I misread my clock? Service does start at 9AM, so I suppose it is feasible to assume I read my watch upside down. No, this was my week in the sound booth, so I needed to setup, do sound check, practice, worship, sermon, end of service worship, second service worship, another sermon, another end of service worship, then teardown.

Ok, that sucked with brief periods of extreme fun.

Then came the first highlight of my day. I got to operate one of these:

We had to take down one of the ceiling mounted video projectors that had stopped working. So, we got in the lift and seconds later were bumping our heads against the ceiling 30 feet above. I don't have a particular problem with heights, but when the lift is fully extended, it becomes rather wobbly. Especially when you have to drive it around while you're way up there. Anyway, it's great fun to drive when not 30 feet up, so I left church feeling very manly, having operated some machinery.

We came home, where we were soon met by some friends who came by for a visit. After that, and after my daughter woke up we headed out to dinner, courtesy of a gift card we had received to PF Chang's. Extremely overpriced, but good tasting, we enjoyed a nice dinner out for free :) The best kind of meal.

Then proceeding home, I settled down to employ my new vegetable brush (did I mention Williams Sonoma next to the restaurant?) to washing our lemons for the next highlight of my day.

We are now only mere weeks or months away from having Limoncella. If I can wait long enough, we will celebrate the arrival of our new baby with a tasty beverage. Yum.

Happy Father's Day everyone.
