notes on a weekend

this weekend took us down to kiawah island, outside of charleston, sc. we got to spend some good time with some of my extended family in a fabulous house about a quarter mile from the beach. the pool at the house treated us quite well too.

i realized as we were leaving sunday morning that i hadn't taken any pictures, which is why there are no people in any of them...

after leaving the house peter and i stopped in downtown charleston, and walked around battery park, rainbow row, waterfront park, and up and down king street. i only snapped a few pictures during our walk, but i think they speak to the charm of charleston.

on the way to and from charleston peter and i had a couple big, important discussions. one of which was basically "168 hours". if you've never done this it goes like this: you have 168 hours in a week. you should sleep for 8 hours a night, so you lose 56 hours right there, and on it goes subtracting out all of your responsibilities. according to this exercise i should have 7.5 hours of free time every week. if i manage my time well. if...

this morning i got off to a good start. i was up bright and early to head over to the garage and pick up my car.

peter has to be at work by 7, so we had to leave by 6:45. i don't remember the last time i saw 6:45, let alone 6:00, but this loveliness made me rethink my normal routine:

for whatever reason sunrises [more than sunsets] always remind me of nahum 1:3b:

"[the Lord's] way is in whirlwind and storm,
and the clouds are the dust of his feet."

and with that,
it's time to get to work.
