Mind if I ramble for awhile? Because I'm thinking of so many happy things at the moment - I wanted to share!
Ma and Pa are both down in Ca for the week - so I get to rule the insurgent kingdom singlehandedly in their absence. Baking, sewing, napping, giggling, gardening, tidying, anointing bruises, watching movies (alright - a movie;) and the endless pondering of the question "What's for dinner?" has been my lot. It's been a relaxing, productive week.
I solved the dinner puzzle this time by making a BakeOver - carrots, spinach, hamburger, garlic, and spices in a pan, an eggy batter poured over all, and the thing was done. And I saw that it was good.
I have been living in my new home for over a week now! It's been wonderful. There's still so much to do to make it quite perfect, but I've been getting a little done every day. My musical instruments are all displayed on the dresser, fresh flowers from my garden are on the little carved table my dad used to finger-paint on, and - this is SO EXCITING - I have a computer set up! It's not quite running, but thanks to Aubrey's efforts, it should be soon. And then. . . well, you'll see. But it's going to be good. =D
Tasha and Alex came over this afternoon. We went on a hike, threw daisies at each other (Aubrey ripped up an entire daisy bushand started sword fighting... things went fast after that;) Tasha and I looked through my Great-Grandma's (G.G.) photo album. Played badminton, then we all sat on my front porch and made some music. It was so nice!
And lastly, the thought that makes me most happy of all -
"Praise ye the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power. Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness. Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp. Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs. Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high sounding cymbals. Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD."
