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."

I haven’t blogged this week because I’ve been busy trying to get cleaning & school stuff & errands done before running up to Michigan to visit & get the kids.  Yesterday was my busiest day by far:

Rinse the carpet in the sewing room (I shampooed Thurs. night) & the mats in the laundry room.

Do laundry (6 loads) I had the clothes line full & the dryer running

Return Debbies dish (she had made lasagna for us Monday night – yum!  I made a pretty good for a first try French bread to go with it.  It really needed Kristen’s gentle bread touch.  That girl has got a gift in the kitchen!)

Take the recycling in & pick up my prescription.

Make enchiladas for the freezer & turn the rest of the 5 lbs. into burger patties for the freezer.

Make potato salad.

Clean the bathrooms.

Pack the suitcase (I’ve got half of it in the car).

Trim the kids pictures that I picked up on Wed. & label the back of them – ready to give to family.

Clean Catnip’s litter.

Freeze the corn from the garden.  I wasn’t sure if it was ready or not, but the 19 ears that I picked were good, so they are blanched & in the freezer.

Pay the bills that will be due when I get back.

I started at 8:45, sat down for an hour at lunch & then didn’t sit down again until I climbed in the car at 4:15.  I was soooo tired last night.  I’ve got the animals tended this morning & dealt with my compost.  I need to wash & dry the dishes & get the car loaded.  I have a couple of errands on my way out of town. Kristen has been very homesick & she wanted me to come up early.  I just couldn’t with so much to do here & so much easier to do it with the kids gone.  I’m looking forward to the visit & the fair & then coming back home for one more week before school starts.  That week is going to be so very busy, too.  Starting school may actually be something of a letdown after the whirlwind of August!

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