[Pentecost +5]

We said goodbye to Jeff and Branden (Minnesota), the Stockwells (Beijing), and the Duhamels (New Jersey), and I cried. Which might have been partially a response to Molly crying -- because I don't feel a deep closeness to any of the folks who are leaving (though I do know them to varying degrees).

We said goodbye to the Yeagers (Maryland) just a couple Sundays ago. Blah, people and their leavings.

Keith told me about the Northampton-Amherst Farm Ride -- which is apparently the weekend AFTER Mike and Kristen's wedding.
SATURDAY JULY 28

We ride! Today is The Farm Ride Century.

You’ll have your choice of a full century (100 miles), a metric century (100 kilometers = about 62 miles), a 25-30 mile route, or an easy cruise around town.

At the Tedeschi in Davis Square, a guy told me the closer my helmet is to my glasses, the more effectively it's protecting the frontal lobe of my brain.

Thus says God to these bones: "I will cause breath to enter you, and you shall live. I will lay sinews on you, and will cause flesh to come upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and you shall live; and you shall know that I am God." (Ezekiel 37:5-6, NRSV, alt.)

Good things about today:
  • is nice to know people missed me during my LJ absences :) [yes, Mom, I know YOU missed me :) ]
  • I wore my star shoes, and 3 people (starting with Ellie -- who seemed genuine) complimented me on them while I was Greeting.
  • Housemate did dishes.
  • Housemate successfully procured an air conditioner. (We ordered 2 online, but 1 was broken; she successfully returned it the other day, but they didn't have any replacements in stock at the time.)
  • may have a good home for my massage table
  • biking home from evening church, it felt fairly comfortable out
    [weather.com] Today's High was 91°F at 1:45pm when conditions were Partly Cloudy
  • Mike N. can't make my birthday party but suggested dinner some night as a possibility, saying, "It would be great to see you." I am choosing to believe he is telling the truth :)
  • JPLicks has coconut base as its dairy free ice cream this month.
Things I did well since last joy sadhana:
  • sent a bunch of emails re: scheduling &c.
  • I got to church about quarter of, saw there was no Greeter, went into Duhamel Hall, saw people were working on bulletins, brought a stack upstairs & Greeted
  • bought milk
  • vacuumed (which apparently triggered something of a "get rid of the stuff I never use" impulse in me)
  • did some other spot-cleaning
  • took out the trash because it was irritatingly (to me) full
  • did my CCV follow-up notes
  • restocked on Boca burgers
  • made lunch for tomorrow
  • made dinner for tonight
  • did dishes
Things I am looking forward to (doing [better]) tomorrow:
["anything that you're looking forward to, that means you're facing tomorrow with joy, not trepidation," as Ari says]
  • Tomorrow's predicted high is only 80F!
  • Possibly B will be in the office?
  • PIC debrief meeting
