This and That

'Twas a quiet day at home, for which I am truly grateful. We had rain most of the day- it's still raining now- so it was very nice to not have to go out.

We've been working on the coat & clothing closet at church this week. It is slow going. I had some great help on Sunday evening, and more on Monday. If it is not too crazy tomorrow, it would be lovely to have some of the young ladies from the youth group help with folding and organizing.
And now for photos...

Scott and two of the children gathered around to watch Peter and The Wolf on the computer

The $12 Menorah we found at an antique store. I've been searching for months!

The Englishman's Hat

Last night, my husband surprised me with a hat. "What a lovely hat," I thought, as I replaced my scarf with it. Just as I rounded the corner out of my bedroom, I was met by my 8 year old son who couldn't control his amused giggles.
"Mom, was that hat made in England? Because you look like an Englishman. If you had a mustache, even a fake one from the Dollar Tree, you would look just like an Englishman."
Hee hee, ha ha ha. He was serious, too. No worries about him wooing any ladies!

What to say?

Things have been quiet here on the ole blog.

Most things going on have been too private to write about. Lots of people have lots of problems. I suppose there is nothing new in that. I must be a good listener.

I haven't taken many pictures lately. Perhaps I just need to keep my camera close by so I can take more pictures. Photos are inspiring- a jumping off place for a story of some sort.

I really had to dig to find a photo to post today. This is what Gloria and I do when one of her older brothers is using our very noisy grain mill.

Tomorrow, I'll do better. It is Wednesday, though, so there is no telling what will happen.
