We had a nice weekend and got to sleep in a little bit. The girls got their beds changed & Karra now has a real "teen" room. Kristen’s is clean, but I’m staying on her pretty hard. I took a trunk full of things to AMVETS yesterday. I couldn’t believe how much stuff Karra parted with!
Sat. night was our first church service at Polaris. The place was packed!! It was really exciting to be part of the launching of a new church. Joel made a very conscientous (?) usher. It felt kind of strange to be sleeping in on Sunday and then cleaning the house! At least I could clean without feeling guilty for skipping church.
I’ve had so many reflections floating around in my head, but no time to come and blog about them. Laziness has been a real thought provoker lately. So many of the changes I want to make in my household mean much less time on the computer, so no blogging about them! I’m still hoping to begin cooking through the recipe box. We’ll start with the box & then move on to the magazines. It might be kind of nice to clean out the cupboard & get rid of some magazines.
In just a few short days we will begin "The 20 Days of Thanksgiving". It’s a BIG idea to get all of those extra cleaning & organizing jobs done prior to the week of Thanksgiving when we do our traditional oh-no-the-family-is-coming-and-we’ve-got-to-clean-this-house! I’ve already gotten the grill cleaned & a ton of donations out of the house yesterday. Today we take a load of winter clothes to the re-sale shop.
I’m out of here. We have lots of reading to do & some laundry to stay on top of.
And that’s what’s happening on the homestead.
