I went to a LOVELY wedding on Saturday, though calling a wedding “lovely” is kind of like calling a baby “cute.” I mean, duh.
During the ceremony, the preacher flubbed up his wording a bit. He was saying the words, and Dorothy was repeating them after him.
Preacher: And before God and these witnesses…
Dorothy: And before God and these witnesses…
Preacher: I promise to be a faithful and true husband.
(Wait, husband? He meant to say wife, of course, but surely Dorothy would just say “wife” instead of “husband” when she repeated it.)
Dorothy: I promise to be a faithful and true husband.
There was a slight pause, and the whole audience burst out in the most boisterous and true laughter I have EVER heard during a wedding ceremony. It was awesome.
After the wedding, all the single ladies gathered to catch the wedding bouquet. I made sure to stand in the front, and when the bouquet came flying through the air I stretched my long arms in the air, and snatch! The bouquet was in my hands.
Then I felt a little silly for snatching it like a greedy child.

Sunday evening Amy gave a presentation at Church about her time in Jamaica. It was super interesting.

Right after church I took Amy to the airport and dropped her off. I mean, Dad took Amy to the airport and dropped her off, and I drove Dad home. Now she is gone, and Ben is at EBI, and the house feels a wee bit empty.
Monday I knocked on Steven’s door to ask if he could take a box of notebooks up to the attic for me. He didn’t answer, but there was a curious breeze emanating from under the door, suggesting to me that a window might be open, and so I went into his room to close the window.
When I stuck my head out of the open window I saw Steven standing on the roof, gazing at the horizon.
“I’m going to town,” he said.
“Oh,” I said, “can I come with you?”
“Yes,” he told me. “Be ready in five.”
So I got ready in five minutes and Steven and I drove to town even though neither of us had any idea how to get to any of the places we wanted to go. We used a map and we never got lost but we missed a bunch of turns.
I watched the Rose Bowl while I was in JC Penney waiting for Steven to try on Jeans.
Yay! Go Ducks!

Well, I guess that’s all for now. Wanted to put up one more pic but couldn’t figure out how to steal it. Humph.
