The result of hours spent working in the sun

As most of you are well aware, my summer job provides me with ample opportunity to think, a dangerous past-time, I know. Yet in a way it is a good thing as it also gives me time to process all the many changes that have happened in my life over the past couple of months: I've moved out on my own (going to Redeemer and living on campus simply doesn't count for this), I've not only started a new relationship but have taken it to the next level and gotten engaged, on top of ending a school year and starting a new job.  (Can we say "overload"?!)  But God is continually faithful to bring me through, and even though I still have a long way to go, at least I'm able to have somewhat of an enjoyable summer. 
Work is same old same old.  As previously stated, we have a lot of time to think...which leads to numerous discussions on bizarre topics ranging from analyzing the male psyche to determining the true definition of "log", (which, by the way, we couldn't quite completely define, but decided without a doubt that a log cannot be alive and standing, because then it would be a tree) to theological topics such as women in office, and even to politics!  I urge you brothers and sisters, find employment that occupies your mind or you may just end up like we who work at Connon Nurseries...
Anyway, preliminary wedding plans are under way...and I do mean preliminary.  So far we've decided to have a backyard wedding with the reception at a hall (which hall yet to be determined), and I've begun looking for a dress, but nothing serious yet.  There is no rush though, and I'm quite content not to let this whole thing take over my life just yet. :)
