A few of my new favorite things:?
?
Spikeball. Just a really fun, portable team sport. Brought it to work the other day. Had some down time. Spikeball tournament. Great morale booster.?
?
Inflatable kayaks. 2-seaters so we can paddle together. Went to the lake Saturday after work. Weather turned rough just as we got there. Still had a great time. Then we had a spikeball tourney! ???
?
Home church. We’ve had some of the best sermons and discussions ever! We’ve taken turns paying the piano, leading the music, praying, preaching, etc. It’s the best!?
?
The Chosen. This TV series is so good! It’s an indie production about the ministry of Christ and his disciples. Everything about this is quality.?
?
Road trips. Ok, this isn’t new, but it’s been nice to have a little time to get out with the fam and just explore. Pick a destination, go for a drive. Sometimes stop along the way. Sometimes take a detour. It’s fun.?
?
Jackhammer. I rented one to demolish my front porch Friday. Porch is crumbling. Time to replace it. Turns out, jackhammering is a lot of fun. Except when it gets stuck. Then it’s just heavy. And stuck. I got worn out.?
?
Having older kids. Oldest is 16. Youngest is 8. They can help tear down a porch, handle a kayak by themselves, play spikeball, talk in church, etc. They’re awesome kids! Now if we could just get them to cleanup after themselves…?
?
Dogs that like to play. Got a laser pointer. Holy cow, those dogs love to chase the red dot! They like to catch popcorn in the air. They love to run and jump and chase and fetch. Best friends, and love to play with each other. Even during church. Which makes home church that much better.?
?
Virtual Zoom backgrounds. Looks like I’m in the Stranger Things world, or the Starship Enterprise, or Joe Exotic’s tiger zoo. Also, Snapcamera has a whole bunch of filters and avatars. Attended a work meeting looking like a potato. And not just cuz I’m out of shape!?
?
Isolation. Not gonna lie. Love not having to interact with other people. I’m an introvert. Way more freedom to be my anti-social self in quarantine.?
?
So, what are some of your favorite things??
