These are my thoughts on a weekend spent at home:
The rest was good! Even though there was alot of work we could have done, the need for rest trumped the To-do list.
My training for the half marathon is back on track, as I completed my 8 mile run Saturday morning. As odd as it may seem, I have been running lately to Francis Chan sermons, and think I like it more than music. My mind engages what he is teaching and the miles seem to fly by. THey may also fly by due to my blazing speed, but I am sure it has more to do with the Word of God. Four weeks left till Race Day!
The WWE, World Wresting Entertainment, never ceases to amaze me. Late Saturday night, I was still awake thanks to too much Espresso, I was blessed in an amazing way when I stumbled onto the Hall of Fame Induction show. There is seriously nothing like seeing chemically enhanced giants and surgically enhanced women in formal dress. To top it off, the crowd was still sporting their Dale Jr. hats, wrestling signs, and consuming large amounts of beer, most likely Budweiser. The Rock delivered a decent perfomance as he trashed several of the current guys, but watching how serious they took the ceremony was the most comical part to me. The Nature Boy Ric Flair was the featured inductee and tears were flowing as he gave his speech. I am not sure if they were crying becase they were so happy for him, or if they were sad for him. It is just tough to see someone look as bad as he does. HGH and other rodis may keep you muscular, but over tanning and being past his prime by several decades makes things just look awkward. He’s still the Nature Boy, but he looked ridiculously unnatural. THe show was definitely good for a few laughs though. On a side note, Flair was the only living inductee, still think roids don’t kill. I sure hope baseball doesn’t end like this! Check out this article for a great description of the events.
Macie is a comedian. I was not feeling great on Sunday, and Macie decided that laughing hysterically would help me feel better, and she was right. Not sure how she comes up with the ideas she does, but they are funny to watch.
Goodwill treasures are wonderful. On Saturday I got to try my new Espresso maker. And by new, obviously I mean purchased at Goodwill. It is one of the stovetop varieties and I decided last month I wanted one so I had been looking at different websites and was planning on spending the $40 on one that seemed the best for me. Little did i know, I would find the exact one at Goodwill for $1.99. Hard to beat that kind of a deal. I am still looking for an excellent Espresso roast, but this weekend I was able to enjoy several nice cups.
Basketball was great. Stephen Curry is a blast to watch. Every time the ball leaves his hand, you just knew it would go in. Hated to see them lose, but the Heels looked great too. It was a tough task, but I have convinced Macie she loves to watch basketball. Dora and Diego had to take a backseat this weekend.
“Dexter” continues to deliver very intriguing shows. I know the premise of the show is weird, and the show itself is dark, but I find it fascinating. Watching someone deal with this darkness inside them as they try to appear normal. I can’t help but think how many live life that way. Thank God we have a way to walk in light and are not controlled by our darkness!
That’s about it, nothing spectacular but that is good with me. What did you do?
