We went on a treasure hunt today, meaning that we dug through the bags and boxes that our neighbor lady gave to us. The hard part then was to decide if we were going to keep the things or donate them to a second-hand store..... Gladys gave us several kitchen utensils; Tupperware items; glass bowls and so on, of which many are going up in the attic to add to my hope-chest corner. She also gave us her fabric scraps and sewing supplies (buttons, lace, thread, needles, pins, bias tape......), so now I have to decide which things I want to use in the near future and which can also go up in the attic. Andrew teases that, one of these days, the ceilings' just going to cave in from all the weight we have up there from the things we store! I hope and pray that he's wrong! We still have things spread out all over the living room, but we did make a lot of progress today. Now we just need to figure out a way to express our thanks to Gladys........(She says we're doing her a service, as she just wants to get rid of these things, and we can relate, as it wasn't all that long ago when we were going through the same thing with Grandpas' house, trying to get it all emptied out.) We were hoping to have Gladys for supper while she was here, but she was visiting other neighbors and then had to leave right away again. Hopefully her family will bring her back again when she has more time to visit.
Mother got our Azure order this morning, so we now once again have frozen blueberries to do things with. Blueberry muffins anyone???
Andrew went down to the Linton area today to help farmer Dave again with some haying. It still is pretty wet here, so Dad said he could go. Andrew's not back yet, but should be coming soon. I got to milk his Sally tonight. :)
Later in the day, my dad was able to rake one field of alfalfa (and nearly got stuck!) and then he baled another. He just got in the house about an hour ago for his supper and now we're all heading for bed. It was such a beautiful day!
I work in town again tomorrow, but then hope to go help our friends, the K. family (who live about an hour away) for a day or two. Sarah is so busy with their 4 little ones; a garden to tend; home schooling to do; healthy cooking to keep up with; and with being a pastors' wife, so it will be fun to go and help her again with whatever needs doing.
So, until next time dear friends, I'll wish you a good night and a good day tomorrow, doing the things that God has for you to do---be that: canning green beans; making water keifer; taking the perfect picture; preparing for corn mazes; mowing lawns; fixing cars; or making hay. :)
