As it is Sunday
O God the Holy Spirit,
Thou who dost proceed from the Father and the Son,
have mercy upon me.
When thou didst first hover over chaos, order came to birth,
beauty robed the world, fruitfulness sprang forth.
Move, I pray thee, upon my disordered heart.
The Valley of Vision, page 31
It's just been a stunningly beautiful weekend, nice warm temperatures (okay, a little hazy today, but still) and my first Saturday/Sunday weekend in a while. I really do love a Saturday off - the whole feel of it is more laid-back than a Monday off. On Mondays I feel as though I've got to accomplish things and be efficient. On Saturdays, who cares? That said, I was up and at 'em with the chickens yesterday, had the oil changed, went to the gym, shopping, then to the park. Sadly I didn't bring the camera to the park (Maymont) - it was gorgeous.
And then today after church I took the camera for a spin. It's much more camera than I need, sort of like having an SUV to drive downtown in. (I really do like it, though, Dad.) I went down in the Fan to get some pictures for my brother and quickly realized why you should read instructions on new rechargeable batteries: They don't come already charged! Fortunately I got the images he needed. A sample is above.
