Yesterday, I mentioned that perhaps my brother, Jacob would not wish to play games with me for a while, as I'd won both of the games we played together. However, in Mother's list of assignments for Jacob's schoolwork, she said that he and I needed to play some of his math games this afternoon. So, we dug out the instruction book and the math cards and played two games and, guess what? He won both of them! Then, Mom had also said he should play a game of chess--either on the computer or with someone else. I guess I shouldn't have agreed to play anymore, as his thinking cap was on straighter than mine was today, but I did agree to, and he won again! He was pretty happy. :)
I've made it sound like all we did was play games today, but that was not the case... Outside of doing the usual household tasks, I got the next batch of Kombucha started again--using our two favorite flavors of tea:
The Kombucha mushroom needs black tea to feed on, but we add these also for the sake of our taste-buds!
I also did a little birthday shopping on-line for my mom's birthday (Dec. 25th). Oh yes, and I watched it snow outside all day long (and it's still snowing now)! The snow is so pretty--and slippery! Tonight, it was quite a challenge to walk to and fro in the barnyard without taking a tumble.
Here's the view from our patio-door--taken around 3:00 in the afternoon:
My dad hauled grain once again and was glad to get home, as the roads were not the best. He was driving on ice some of the time! My mom was also travelling, as she went up to her office and did several sessions on clients. I'm praising God now that we were all brought back together, safely under the roof of our little house on the prairie!!!
Before I go, I just have to tell you something that I'm excited about... Yesterday, while babysitting our neighbor, Stacey's little ones (Alan's too), she called me up to check how things were going and then told me that she'd just had it confirmed that they are expecting another baby sometime in June!!! How precious new life is! I wasn't able to tell you yesterday, as Stacey said they weren't "Telling the world" yet, but seeing as she sent out the "Expectancy Announcement" today, I guess it's alright to say it now. :)
