Something New

This week ALL of our children are at camp and so Arthur and I are home alone. That's something that hasn't happened at home since we had children!! We've gone away and spent a night here or there in a motel, but not at home. There's more work to do than normal but my children have told me that I had to take this week off and rest. Rest? So, while I was resting today I went to town to run multiple errands, picked raspberries, moved chickens from one pen to another, and then when they all got out, moved them back to their original pen, went out to a couple of fields to get Arthur and to drop off Arthur, had Amos, Rebekah, and Daniel over for lunch, and froze the raspberries I picked. Did you know that when you have a full bag of raspberries and you forget to zip lock the bag, and then you drop it, they don't just roll gently on the floor? They splat! So, I cleaned up my mess as well! All that before 2:30. I have a few 'surprise' projects for the kids I want to work on so I better get busy. Have a great day in the Lord!

Psalm 37:7 Rest in the Lord...


  1. Wow, I'd say enjoy your break, but your kids are old enough to help instead of hinder. I had to laugh about the chickens and "Oh no!" about the raspberries. Have fun and see if things calm down a bit. :) LOL

  2. So for the surprise projects for the long of a cleaning list will they have this time?? LOL

  3. WOW, enjoy your time've sure earned it!!! :)

  4. Hi there,

    I remember Arthur & Linda from CGN "back in the day." I found your blog through the CEF blog that Daniel McIntosh linked me to.

    I don't know if I'd know quite what to do with all my kiddos gone! I'll have 3 out of 5 gone (camp) in a few weeks - that will be strange enough. Enjoy your week!


We'd love to hear what you have to say!
