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."

Hey Howdy Hey!  We’ve made it to Wednesday this week.  I hardly know where to start.  Monday night Joel walked in & the girls & I ran out to go to JoAnn’s.  It was the only evening all week that we have free for shopping & Karra wanted scrapbook papers to make Christmas stuff & do a paper collage for her wall.  Kristen & I found rainbow fabric & star ribbon to make friendship bags for the Stars class (from Heidi & I) and then standing in line at the cutting counter I found a beautiful brown fabric with camillias on it – very fall looking.  It will make a gorgeous dress & I have the pattern in my mind’s eye (good place for the whole thing to be stored for a while!).  The fabric was on clearance for $1.50 a yard!  I bought 6 yards.  I haven’t made a long-sleeved, full skirted dress for myself in a long time & I’m bigger than I used to be.  The extra will make cute dresses for Brittney & Nicki.

I finally checked on the peas in the garden (after the freeze) & what do you know?!  Some very nice looking, unfrozen pods on the vines!  I also found a new magazine that I’m enjoying.  Mary Janes Farm.  It’s organic oriented, but the look of the pages & the general feel of the writing is so old fashioned & comforting.  I’m definitely going to try it for a year.

We’re off to the zoo tomorrow afternoon for the girls to learn about the Boreal Forest.  Kurt & I will enjoy the warm weather for one more day & then we’ll be back on Friday (in the rain) for Karra to take an interactive satellite class with polar bear researchers in Canada!  Kristen, Kurt & I will take our books to the Congo lunch area & sit inside.  Wow, we have a field trip next Monday.  We’ve been so proud of ourselves for keeping on track with school, but we’re going to be hard pressed to finish week 9 ON week 9 next week! 

That’s what’s happening on the homestead!
