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

Peek Week: Wednesday

Half price day at Salvation Army today. Haven't been there since Spring (if THAT.) Figured I was due. A trip to town meant I actually put on makeup. And changing my shirt.

My trips to Salvo go as follows:

1st stop~ linens (for embroidered things, crocheted afghans, vintage hankies, and pillowslips. Those are the treasures for ME.)

2nd because it is right next to linens: A super-fast skim through little sizes (if I am not on time constraints)-only for gems like crocheted dresses since the little ones have plenty of hand-me-downs to keep them covered. Lots of times I just skip step.

Girl dress area~ to nab before anyone else any good Corynn size dresses, since they are so hard to find.

Shoes-for cowboy boots, especially. One must nab cowboy boots every chance they are given.

Boy clothes-because duh. Boys clothes don't last a month around here. Church shirts or pants are always needed. The rest of the time he can look like a cowboy.

Then back to glasswares for the occasional basket or colored glass treasure. And books.

And then, if shopping with someone, I wonder around aimlessly until they are done. Glancing through skirts and shirts for me, knowing I never find anything for me to ever buy for myself.

Judah in linens~ playing touchy feely with the crocheted blankets.

Adele', on the other hand, would be happy to live near the purses and mirrors.

I also got a tiny pair of glittered klompen.

Adele' is trying VERY hard to hold still enough for a good picture.

Judah's plate at supper. For the rest of ours, just imagine everything all mixed up. And a lot more green.

"Who remembers the name of Zachariah's wife?"

"I DO!"

And Adele' raises her hand and shouts "I DO!" and I say, "okay Adele'. What is her name?"

"Dezus dy"

And now the children are sleeping and this blog post is done so I must go downstairs and finish doing this:

Two more days....
