Psalm 27:4 "One thing have I desired; that will I seek after. That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life."

Merry Christmas Blogosphere!!

Merry Christmas!!  My Christmas gift of solitude has begun.  After a morning of presents & packing, the family is on its way to Michigan and snow.  I don’t know what to do first:  clean, sew or paint.  I’ve decided to indulge in a little more junk food & make a long list of doable & dreamable projects.  THEN I’ll do the dishes & mop the kitchen.  I may go hang out on Homesteading Today for a while.  I had plans to take a long whirlpool bath tonight & eat a ton of popcorn while I watch "It’s a Wonderful Life".  I’m not really in a movie mood, but that could change as I start to get things accomplished around here.  I don’t think I’ll bother to get dressed.  I like my comfy M&M’s racing jammies!  Karra’s gingerbread bathrobe did look comfy – too bad she took it with her.

We went to church last night & it was so nice.  Kristen said she really felt God’s presence & was very touched.  Joel, Karra & I were really blessed to have our Pastor serve us communion last night.  Karra said she played shy & didn’t wish him a Merry Christmas.  We had a chance to see our friend, Maria, after service & she’s invited us to lunch after church in 2 weeks (when we’ll be back).  We jokingly call it "Maria’s Restaurant".  She is a VERY good cook!  She always makes fried rice & corn pudding for us.  Yum.  Maybe I’ll be recovered from all of the Christmas cookies by then.

I do have a funny chicken story that I’ve been forgetting to tell.  Karra & I came home from somewhere a couple of weeks ago & I asked her to go let the chickens out of the run.  They came out & crowded around her.  Kurt’s chicken, Sarah, took one look at Karra and scurried back into the run.  Karra opened the coop to check for eggs & there was Sarah making a beeline for the nestbox.  She set up quite a squack when Karra did indeed remove the egg.  She’s such a sweet chicken.  She’ll hang around right at your feet until you pet her.  She just needs some people love – and to have her eggs left alone!!

By blog entry ends with lots of love & well wishes for your Christmas.  Enjoy each other and I’ll enjoy the solitude that only a homeschool Mom can appreciate!  God bless us, every one!!

And that’s what’s happening on the homestead.
