Some thoughts on the events:
1. Yay for Phil Mickelson winning The Masters for the third time. I have to say, I'm heartily weary of all the Tiger Woods hype. Before his affairs became water-cooler fodder, I wondered if the announcers were being paid by the mention. No matter where Tiger was on the leaderboard, the focus was always on him. He could be twenty shots off the lead and the camera spent more time on his round than on the leaders. Then a five-month fiasco of a hiatus from golf while his LOADS of dirty laundry were aired around the world. During that time off, golf announcers on tv had nothing to talk about. There were a lot of awkward silences, and even (I'm not making this up) some references to "A certain famous golfer who isn't in the field today." Now that Tiger's back, the announcers are once again mentioning his name every other minute. Sigh. I do enjoy watching golf, but not when such blatant idolatry is going on.
2. Spring Cleaning Fever hit here. Scrubbing the gasket on the fridge door and chasing dust bunnies behind the tv and under my printer. I also organized my bookshelf and reshelved the tower of books that had been growing on my bedside table.
3. I really enjoy the tv show Castle. I have the first season on DVD, and we watched some episodes in the evenings this weekend.
4. I love my church. Sunday School is wonderful! We're going through the book of Romans. I know Pastor Kevin intended us to move much quicker through the chapters (we're in about week five and only half way through chapter 2) but the slow, expositional study suits me down to the ground! Also, last night was our women's Bible study. We had two new ladies who brought such a fresh viewpoint and were such great reminders of the beautiful grace and provision of God in our lives. We're studying in the Psalms, using Nancy Leigh DeMoss's 30 Day Walk in the Psalms, and it's like drinking cool, clear, refreshing water after being in a parched desert.
So, how was your weekend? Are you refreshed and ready to dive into this week? Have you done any spring cleaning yet?
