Sunday In The City

A day that starts out with soccer is a great day indeed. This morning Josh and I watched the Man U/Chelsea game over breakfast and some warm beverages. 

Unfortunately Man U won. You see I am a mild Chelsea fan for the simple fact the Fernando Torres is on the team. For those of you non-soccer fans, he is super attractive and has an elvish tattoo like me (which I am allowed to say since my husband would agree). However, the shot Torres missed on an open goal was even more unfortunate than the game's outcome. We both felt super bad for him; he has been out of form lately and is trying to find his stride again and I just felt like it was a blow to his self-confidence. Like concerned parents, Josh and I wanted him to know that we still love him, that he is still a worthwhile player and that he can go get 'em next time. If your reading this Torres, we believe in you!

After the game we decided to visit the Alemany Flea Market, and since this Sunday was the first Sunday of our church's 3rd service at 5pm, we decided why not, the morning was our oyster.

The Alemany Flea market is the best! full of lots of characters and random yet awesome crap. It is the flea market for the real flea marketer, not the antiquer. The following photos will show you what I mean...

Same gator that ate Chubbs' hand I think.

That's one proud Mallard. 

Remember these.

Apparently Josh didn't get the memo. 

Josh's favorite find of the day: old Super Nintendo games.

If only I had a 90's party to go to.

We eventually walked away with what we went for, a set of glasses. We had broken all our old ones in freak washing and dropping accidents.

We came home and cleaned house, which feels incredibly good after dog-sitting for a week, and then went to church at 5pm. It was so great, we are starting Genesis and our pastor introduced the book today. Take away: Genesis is a book about God. The teaching should be up here either today or tomorrow if you are interested in giving it a listen.

Another take away:
When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?
-Psalm 8:3-4

Chew on that one for a while :)

Then our friends Eva and Jordan came over for din din...

at which we served this awesomely delicious heirloom tomato app. You should try it, recipe here.

They are just great, Eva and Jordan I mean, and so was sharing a meal with them. 

All-in-all a superb Sunday.
