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

Thursday Doings~

  • made breakfast (cinnamon and brown sugar oatmeal with raisins)
  • defrosted frozen tomatoes
  • chores
  • made a new batch of tea (raspberry mint because I didn't have enough teabags for my usual plain mint) 
  • took burnables out to the barn
  • began tomatoes (the big item for the day).  Washing.  Cutting.  Squishing.  Pouring. Washing.  Cutting.  Squishing.  Pouring.  Washing.  Cutting.  Squishing....you get the idea. For about four hours.
  • While I did tomato-ey things, I listened to a lecture on Winston Churchill.  I think, if the Lord ever gives me another baby and if that baby happens to be a boy, I may be very tempted to name him, at least in part, Churchill.  Strange, but true. 
  • talked with a neighbor who stopped by.  Very superly, amazingly, wonderfully excited about what they had to say.  It involves a miniature horse.  (shhhhhhhhh-don't tell!)
  • talked with my mother-in-law who stopped by
  • fixed lunches for children (pb&j sandwiches-elegant!)
  • ate lunch.  Barely convinced myself to get back up out of my chair.
  • But I did.  I used rest time to go across the street to the Granary and organize/sort   (An impossible job with an awake Judahbear.)  Did this for about two hours.
  • After rest time was over, headed back to house and started the last of the tomatoes and then, the tomato clean-up.  This took about another hour.
  • Made supper.  (Chicken quesadillas topped with sour cream and fresh salsa and wheat berry salad.)
  • played hangman with childer and husband
  • Did supper dishes.
  • Wiped down dining table, counters, etc.
  • Prepared cherry and pear tomatoes for making into sun-dried tomatoes (via deyhdrator)
Tomorrow I will be canning the sauce I made today, among other things.

See you on the flipside!
