Well, I just thought that I would update you on the office/libraryÂ situation. Since it seems that we will be staying in Frisco for the foreseeable future, I have kicked . . .Â I mean moved Katelynn into Kylee’s room. I took her room for an officeÂ and was able to move all my books out of the boxes! Here is the way it looks now with commentary below.
As you can see, much has changed. Let me describe what you are looking at. To the left is much of my library. All that is left in boxes are the self-help books (who needs them?), eschatology books (tired of the subject), and most of my books on ministry (what can I say?). But I do have all my commentaries, bible background, original language, and systematic theology books out (sweet!). In the middle, by the window, you will notice some art work. These are paintings that I did in High School. The one furthest to the left is composed ofÂ dozens ofÂ styrofoam cups that I put teeth marks in and then painted. Here is a close up:
The one in the middle is a painting of the boy on U2s “Boy” album. The one on the right is one I did during college. Believe it or not, the two to the left won me a scholarship and were hanging in the governor’s mansion years ago. My computers are to the right. I have three right now, but one is a floater for CWS scholars who just use Mac (no comment). The bike in the middle of the room is my exercise bike. I have to keep it here so that I don’t have an excuse! (Yes, it is the one I was riding during Copan’s class!). If you look closely, you can see the books just to the left of the bike not filed with the others. Those are the ones I read while I am on the bike. Look in the “Books I am Reading” section on the front page of the blog to see what they are. And finally, sitting thereÂ on the floor is baby Zach. Here is a close up:
Notice first how cute he is. Second, you need to be aware that this is the situation as it stands at 11:30 Sunday evening, but is also representative of most evenings. It usually remains this way until about 3am when I finally go to bed. Zach is kind of fussy, so I take him so that Kristie can get some sleep. We have some fun together as I discuss with him what I should blog about. His ideas are really great. He is responsible for the one about Christian sub-cultures. Notice as well his bottle. It is an ingenious invention that I highly recommend for all late night bloggers. You don’t even have to hold it. The bottle has a straw that goes from the bottle to the nipple. It is hard to clean, but worth it. The picture represents Zach’s fight to get his bottle after it slipped out of his mouth. I put it back right after the picture was taken. Now he is asleep. Here is what he looks like now:
OK, that is it. Thought you might enjoy an update. Any questions?
