Bright-Eyed and Bushy-Tailed

(I never really understood what that phrase means. I still don’t.)

But if it means that you woke up actually ready to wake up, then that describes me this morning! I fell asleep on the sofa last night at 8:30 and woke up at 9:30 and went to bed. And I woke up at 7. You do the math. That’s a lotta sleep. And I needed it. The weekend was busy, but fun!

Kyle’s band (The Apologies) is in the middle of recording. So he was busy with that on Saturday afternoon, and then they had a show that night. Saturday night was their best show ever. It never rocks to be the first in the line-up for the evening. People tend to ignore you. It definitely helped that (a) they were second and (b) the first band made them look really good! πŸ™‚ During the Apologies set, three of the four guys from the first band were standing in front of me, marveling at my husband’s awesome drumming skills. (Really they were admiring the whole band because … they really did sound good. But they kept getting hung up on the drummer. Can’t say I blame ’em.)

So that was a fun night. But it was a late night too! We got home at around 3 AM, and Kyle had to get up at 6 to be at church by 7. He was playing drums at Pointe North on Sunday morning. Will & Clay (Journey Church guys) met us for the 9 o’clock service. It was nice to have someone to sit with. And kinda fun because they’re as sacrilegious as we are!

Then that night, we went to the Journey Church … something. Bible study? Meeting? Hang-out? I don’t know what it was called, but it was a lot of fun meeting some of the people who are going to be a part of what’s happening.

I don’t think I’ve ever really shared what’s going on with Journey Church with you, because it’s kind of coming together in pieces for us too. But here’s what we know:

  • Will and Clay — both originally from South Carolina, wound up working at the same church somewhere in Kentucky. Felt like God wanted to use them to plant churches that would target a younger generation.
  • They have moved themselves and their wives and small children to the Summerville area.
  • There are several other people who are in Kentucky who are job-interviewing and house-selling and trying to make their way down to be a part of the plant.

It’s really exciting to meet the people who are coming down to be involved in this. With every person we’ve met so far, we’ve been impressed at their desire just to be involved in the area – and without ego! Such humble people! It’s really refreshing.

Anyway. So we’re excited about what all is coming down the pipe in the Polk family these days. My husband is going to be a famous musician, and a world-renowned drummer. And we get to be a part of something cool that God is doing in our area. And we’re excited!

  1. Sounds like lots of exciting happenings in the Polk household! Including your new self-comparison to a squirrel. πŸ˜‰

  2. Is that what Bright-Eyed and Bushy-Tailed means? I’m a squirrel?? Interesting.

  3. Yeah, that’s how I’ve always thought of it – bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, like a frisky squirrel darting around the yard collecting sunflower seeds. Although if I was analysing WHY I think that, it would probably have something to do with the fact that my family says “bright and squirrely” instead of “bright and early,” and the two are next-door neighbors in my mental real estate…
