Pardon my messy bathroom. I had more important things to do than clean mirrors and toilets.

Last Saturday I rolled out of bed while my family still slept.  I packed one of my many Thirty-One bags with some of my journals, my Bible, and my favorite book.  Threw on some jeans and a scarf and escaped to a corner booth at Panera. 

I sat in that booth for FIVE HOURS!  I enjoyed both breakfast and lunch during my stay.
