Friday Five: Hasty Edition

Friday Five: Hasty Edition to play today

When I logged in at 7:52, I found only one person had played so far—maybe because of ReverendMother's being (happily, I hope) lost in time. RM blogged,
Whoops! I have been in a family-induced haze these few days, with the July 4 holiday and taking time off while relatives are visiting. So I literally lost track of what day it was!

So rather than make you guys wait even one minute longer for the five, I'll dig up an oldie:
This F5 suits me just fine, esp since I like to get my F5 done in time for at least a few people to read, but I'm out here on the left, so frequently end up #30 or #40 or so in the comments. I'll answer about my subject to change plans for this First Friday in and of July...and it's now past 9 here, so I need to post.

Today, what are you:

1. Wearing

stonewashed blue shortalls, long sleeved garden print 6-button henley shirt; green seersucker flip-flops

2. Reading

Continuing to enjoy going through a stack of hard copies of design and graphics magazines

3. Eating

breakfast: English muffin, butter and strawberry jam
lunch: hoping to get a 1/4 lemon chicken plate at the local Greek Place: dark chicken, pita slices, salad, tzadiki sauce, french fries
later: don't yet know

4. Doing

When I served FT in the church, Friday usually was my day off, and as a free-lancer I still try to make Friday a day of recreation and reflection, though the year of 5-days a week FT design school I finished last October got me out of an enjoyable habit I haven't yet returned to. So again I'll mention the mags for graphically designing "moi", a set of actual banner design possibilities for Psalm 96:1, plus more ideas for the juried local digital liturgical art competition I'll be entering in the fall.
There is a Place
5. Pondering

My place in the world and esp my place, my future in the Church and the future of mainline Christianity in this country. Really!

I want to see those seersucker flip flops!

Mary Beth said...

Yeah, me too!

I also want a seersucker one you could send me?

Di said...

I'm fixating on flipflops today, and yours sound particularly cute.

Unknown said...

Big topics, frequently on my mind, too!

#5 is tough that's for sure... I better grab another cup of coffee... sometimes the world's too big for my small self to handle.

I'm glad I got to visit since you played early!

Have you seen the cute flip flop earrings they've got at Claire's (and similar outlets) this summer. Very fun and in many colors (including green!)

Sally said...

I understand that pondering.... it is good to keep questioning and pondering how we portray Christianity, and what it is really all about... good but hard!

well played.

Barbara B. said...

I understand your pondering as well... (and would also like to see those seersucker flip flops!)

Teri said...

fridays for R&R are the best. you should get back in the habit!

Dr. Laura Marie Grimes said...

Hi Leah Sophia, thanks for stopping by my place with kind words...your outfit sounds adorable. And many prayers and blessings as you keep pondering and moving toward that place Jesus is preparing for you which will so beautifully use your many gifts....

Save the date, if you're interested: Sat. Sept. 29 at St. Matthew Ecumenical Church in Orange, probably at 4 p.m., we're having a liturgy to celebrate the birth of Sophia Catholic Communion, the ordination of our first transitional deacon, and my installation as bishop (since my consecration was last minute and tiny). Hoping some of the southern Cal RevGals can come and it would be so awesome to finally meet up...

love the graphics...

Rev SS said...

I agree .. want to see those flip flops. And, I need at least another cup of coffee to ponder #5 with you. It will be very interesting to see what the "church" in this country looks like in 25 years!

Deb said...

Yeah. I'll join you on #5. Big Time!
