Well, I can't sleep. I was about to go to bed after a night of ripping some sermon CDs to my computer for later duplication. I'm planning on giving the copies to Mrs. Shirley at work on Tuesday. She should appreciate them.
Well, when I was about to go to bed, I heard outside my window what sounded like rapid gunfire. I went downstairs to look out my back door to see if I could see anything. I saw nothing, so I grabbed an ice cream cone out of the freezer, ate it, and went back to bed. However, I cannot sleep with the sirens going up and down the street. The helicopter circling doesn't help either.
So, what am I going to do? Well, I'm going to continue reading The Hobbit. It's a good read so far, and I am liking Gandalf already. He's quite funny. (I will follow up with a full book report later, possibly later today.)
I've been doing a service for the church over the past month. I've been in charge of making the sermon CDs for those who request them each week. My duties covered a month. I've been doing them on Wednesdays, the day I have off of school. Well, I really came to enjoy doing it. It's easy service. It's relaxing because I'm in the office alone. I also get to relax from the stress of work and sometimes I read a book while doing it. Other times, I listen to the sermon preached as the CDs burn and the labels are printed. (A nice feature is that the CDs are inkjet-printable, so the machine we have can print the label right on the CD. It's like one step down from LightScribe.)
Well, since the sirens are still blaring and the chopper is still circling, I'm going to try to go back to reading.
