Since we started this seminary gig certain things we took for granted have become luxuries. Breakfast out, for one. We've been wanting to go out but, really, unless we're traveling there's no need. So today we satisfied our craving with a restaurant breakfast at home. The seminarian made eggs and hash browns; we had homemade bread for toast, and berry smoothies. Lots of coffee for the grownups, too. No cute little packets of honey but the big jar worked as well.
Breakfast took an hour, too, just like at a restaurant because we spent the time talking about creation, evolution, the coelacanth (that's what started it all), the big bang theory, humility, disagreeing with people in an undisagreeable (made up word) way, and Deuteronomy 29:29 (you could look it up).
Hey, that's science, philosophy, and 20% of a Pennsylvania school day.
So I probably won't have much time to browse the Saturday Review of Books at Semicolon today. I've been trying to finish one of the 3 or 4 books I'm reading now to submit a comment. Maybe next week. I have flowers to plant and a dress to sew for my girl. What blog comment could be more important than that?
