World Food Day

I am embarrassed to say that I just realized it is World Food Day.

The theme for this year is Family Farming: “Feeding the world, caring for the earth”

So, as the World Food Day website suggests, raise your glass and toast a farmer.

And, support the fight to end hunger by volunteering or donating to the cause.


Weekend Update

I’m tired. It was a long busy weekend. Here are a few highlights:
  • In case you were unaware, I am now in charge of the volunteers for a small social services agency in Pasadena. I love working with the volunteers. They give and give and give. It’s really amazing.  To honor them each year we put on a volunteer appreciation event.  This year we had a picnic in a local park.  It was a lot of fun, but also a lot of work.  Erin and I got up early Saturday morning and worked like dogs until the early afternoon.
  • After the picnic we came home, and sold our Oldsmobile.  It’s soo great to have that weight and added monthly expense off our shoulders.  Now, if we can just sell the van we’d be down to two cars, and one project car. Still a lot of cars, I know.
  • Sunday I lead worship at church.  I love getting the opportunity to do it every month or so, but it’s pretty emotionally draining.
  • Sunday afternoon we grilled with the young adults group at church and then went home to take short naps before driving out to Ventura for Erin’s cousin’s open house.  It was a nice afternoon and evening, but we didn’t get home until after 10 PM, which is past my bedtime… especially for a Sunday night.
