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

It's Thursday, folks.



 A friend whom I haven't seen for several weeks asked me the other day "Soooo- whatcha been doing this summer?"  I scratched my head and said something like "Well.....canning.  I am sure there has been other stuff...I can't seem to remember it though..."  And we both laughed because she totally *got* it.  I love friends like that.
 


 


This week was our LAST WEEK before school starts, and as such I had some mighty high expectations for it.  For example:

~This week was supposed to be my week to plan for the school year and order books. I was determined to begin the year tidily and organized and positively oozing preparedness. 

  I haven't. 

I looked through a few catalogs before happening upon the Rainbow Resource catalog and when my eyes met that monster, I recoiled in fear and ran screaming into the woods.  If you are a homeschooler- you understand.  If you aren't a homeschooler....consider yourself very blessed.  I will spare you the nightmares by not describing to you the terror that monster of a million-page catalog imprints in your soul. 

 

 

~This week I was supposed to prepare for my non-twins' birthdays on Monday.  A girl turning double digits and my baby turning *sniff* THREE.   What cake would they like?  What meal?  What gift?  I dunno.  I thought I had time to figure it out.




~This week was supposed to be a week of getting caught up on canning.

And I did get caught up on the tomatoes and cucumbers (for a few days anyway)- I made spaghetti sauce, and gorgeous pineapple salsa and pickle spears and stackers...but just when I was caught up on things for a day or two and could confidently take a day off from preserving in some way, I just HAD to go to an auction and buy some pears and grapes!

I am a glutton for punishment, I know.



 

 ~This week, the last-week-before-school-starts, we were supposed to soak up the last week of non-school and no set schedule and just.have.fun.  While the kids have been living it up- I have been....well, you know.

I thought I had time to think about all of that...I thought I had time to do it all- but by golly- I just realized that it is THURSDAY, folks!   And the week is practically over!  Where did this week go?

I remember doing things this week....I just don't remember what exactly.



I thought if you were sick to death of canning talk, maybe I could interest you in zinnia photo overkill or a proper pink overload?   

Now that I have overwhelmed you thrice, I am quite sure I have ruined any chance of people visiting this blog.  whoops.
