Most Saturdays are spent at home, but today was a busy day. Our church hosted its annual Empty Bowls Luncheon. Basically people make bowls all year long – paint, glaze, fire, the whole bit – and people volunteer to make soup or donate an item they’ve made for the silent auction in order to raise money for a local soup kitchen and a local food pantry. Tickets are $20 apiece, and you get to choose a bowl to take home. This is the one I chose:
Normally, October 25 would be a grand day to hold this event. As we are in Texas, however, the weather does what it wants. Today, it wanted to be 90 degrees outside.
Not exactly soup weather, but there seemed to be a nice turnout all the same.
This afternoon, I took a beginning crochet class. It was a hot walk to class and back to my car, which I intentionally parked a few blocks farther away than necessary so I could add a little extra activity. I did a whole lot of hanging out in front of the fan when I got home.
But I walked, and that counts.
