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

Airing my dirty laundry and other snapshots

~ she found a small, very old book in the basement entitled Think Before You Act and calls it her treasure. That moment, I saw the sun glistening her strands and pages illuminating her mind and called her mine.

~ I felt very proud of myself for doing a load of laundry that day. UNTIL I realized that a vent hole had yet to be cut into the wall, leaving the dryer unusable and no clothesline has been put up.

What?!? You don't think little undies and socks make good valances?!?!?
I say: "Tres chic!"

~ pumpkins and sunshine. The lighting is just so that you can not see the piles of metal scrap awaiting removal, the bags and bags of garbage on the porch, the exposed and trampled dirt left over from an emergency drainpipe/leach-field dig-up and fix-up, or the haybales that are trying desperately (and in vain) to help insulate a foundation that needs to be fixed next spring. Lovely lighting, no?

~ We wanted to get all moved before the snow flew but Jack Frost had other plans. It snowed the most beautiful covering of white~ the kind that sticks to trees and makes marvelous snowmen...... and makes moving a tremendous pain. But the children had a lovely diversion with the snow, though I fear Corynn may be allergic.

~ The first time we slept over, we all woke up at about the same time, came downstairs and stopped in our tracks. Andrew said "Woah! Look!" Corynn said " Mama look at the window!" and I just stared. The finest gold, and with a glimpse~ we are kings.

~ My first task was to get the counters in the kitchen cleared and the table in the dining room cleared so that we could at least fix REAL food and have a place to eat it. After a job well done, I fixed our first meal in the new house. Everywhere else was a D.I.S.A.S.T.E.R but the meatloaf, boiled potatoes and roasted vegetables never tasted so good. We even had some sparkling grape juice I had found in the cupboard when we were cleaning out Grams things.

~ miss him? Oh, that face.

Too busy to have been taking many photos these past few weeks, but I could muster these few.

One for each week I have been gone.

Figured I owed ya.
