That's much better... Thank you Lord!

Today felt like spring! The sun was shining brightly and the balmy breezes were invigorating...
--Not quite the kind of weather that makes you want to stay inside and clean the house and cook, but that's what we usually do on Fridays, and that's what we did! Jacob (with a tiny bit of help from me) made a double batch of Mrs. Bartlett's Raspberry Muffins, and they are SO delicious!!!

We did have a nice visit from our friend Sarah and her 3 children this afternoon, so that was a nice break in the busyness of the day.

Andrew got back from cleaning grain around 6:30, so he was able to help us with chores tonight!!! :) I've been doing a lot of his chore-work these last 3 days, which involves carrying heavy pails of grain and water and throwing scratchy hay over the fences to the calves and goats, so it was really nice to have a break from that. I don't know how he does it all the time?

Tomorrow we're going down to Eureka to help my B grandparents with packing. They also want us (and the other children/grandchildren) to take a lot of things home, so it will be a full day I'm sure! The actual moving day will be next Saturday, so we'll be gone two weekends in a row it looks like...... Prayers for safety and wisdom (in deciding which things we have room for in our little house and which it would be best to leave) would be much appreciated!

Mmmm! Raspberry muffins! I like muffins so much but have not had any since our electric oven broke. I should soon.
Have fun today--safe travels and I'll be praying for you :)

Good Night!
I'm in bed at 10:40 -- can you believe it? Well, I got up before 6:00, that's harder to believe but believe me, it's true :P

oops, I started reading my cousin's blog and I did not get in bed by the time I thought I was. Excuse me, I'm needed in the land of nod. Meet ya there!
