Thursday....are you kidding? It can't be! I guess my dejunking the master bedroom has made time fly. I seem to be throwing lots of old memories out...good riddance! I actually have two completely empty drawers in the tall dresser. Amazing...most of it went in the trash or the Samaritan House bag. It is kind of funny how I hold on to things.
My computer room is embarrassingly full of stuff to be sorted, stored or given away. I think this will be the final room to be done. It has become my storage area throughout this whole process.
I don't think my shelves are going to be built in the laundry room. Sigh... If I save some more money...I can buy the wood and figure it out myself. I don't think it can be but so hard. Measure, mark the studs, cut and nail. Hm....
So, what is God teaching me this week. Time management-obviously, but also about humility and forgiveness. Time management is being taught through deep cleaning my house...I have 4 weeks to get my house in shape before our formal homeschooling starts up again. Yikes!!
Humility--God, my Father, is teaching me this through a car that has stranded me twice now. Yesterday, the police were involved....sigh... One of the policemen, the older gentleman, said I needed to buy a new car. (Portsmouth's finest--really?!) I was practically in tears and causing a major traffic jam at London and Effingham at 4:10p.m! Needless to say, some people were not so kind and I had to just sit or stand there and take it. Sigh.... The younger policeman, a true gentleman, got my car started and got me into a parking lot away from traffic. Putting it in neutral was the key. I left in silent tears...
Forgiveness--God, my Father, is teaching me this through my husband. I was so mad at him because there have been signs of car trouble for a long time now. If it is broke, fix it..
Oh well, my husband was very apologetic and I have to learn to forgive him of his many short comings. He does forgive me my many short comings. And God forgave us both! Forgiving one another is not a suggestion....it is a command.
I have some more cucumbers! I am going to make some Kosher Dill Pickles with these. I can't wait to do them. Maybe this evening.... I LOVE DILL PICKLES!
I am going to throw out the fermented pickles! They are nasty...I will try again later.
Well, that is it for today.
