What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

A Day Out


Grandma and Grandpa took the older three to a cool museum, leaving just the little guy and I to run errands all. day. long.

There is the post office, and the library, and three different craft stores, and the grocery store, and the book store and Target. There is the bank, the church and a few more stores in between. Then it is meet Matt, have supper and do more shopping.

Last minute gifts, baking week, readying the house for hosting Christmas Eve this year, candy tins for neighbors and candy platters for work yet to make, dinner and appetizers to plan for Christmas Eve, chairs to find (?!?!?) and Christmas cards (still) to send. I am swamped-but surprisingly good natured at the thought of it. I don't feel harried in the slightest.

I live for this sort of thing.

(I'll have to remind myself of that tonight....

PS. Completely unrelated::: Isn't it fun when clothes are resurrected? The above outfit once belonged to a certain Panda I know and now belongs to Little. Yay for boys.

Very cute! I love going through my clothes bins each new season and getting out older brother's and sister's outfits for the next crew. As I pull some long-forgotten adorable item out of the bin good memories flood my heart and I can't help but smile .

LOVE seeing them again and again!

Wait until you get to hand some things down to your grandchildren. I did that with a couple of things, and the kids play with lots of their toys. It is so fun and brings back fond memories. I am sure that is the case for you too.
