What are you doing?

Today is that Holy Day when you are suppose to give up something for the next 40 days and not eat meat on Fridays. Will you be giving up anything? What have you given up in the past?

Part of me is torn on whether or not I should still participate in this holy idea of giving up something for 40days. Last year I gave up running because it was something that I was addicted to doing, but really it was a good reason to give my body a break from an injury I was ignoring.

I just got back from receiving ashes at church but nothing feels spiritually different, just emotionally. I normally go home to Richmond for Ash Wednesday with my family but due to lack of time (saving up my vacation days for the "unannounced trip") I wasn't able to go today which makes me sad.

Well for now I will still eat meat on Fridays and enjoy every aspect of what a wonderful life God has given me.

The sunny view outside my work window today and tomorrow it's suppose to be warm enough to ride my bike to work!!!! And yes, those are binoculars at the bottom of the picture.....

Would you follow?

Would you read this blog if I changed what I focused on? In 2008 I took a chance at rehabbing a house and now I'm ready for something new in 2009.

Have any suggestions for me?

What is one of the craziest things you ever took a chance at doing?
What do you want to find time to take a chance at in 2009?
