It’s been slow around here lately. Not much has happened to tell about.
John replaced the starter on his truck, and keeps up with cutting and splitting wood. He’s having to run the generator some each day because we haven’t been getting enough sun on the solar panels due to winter cloudiness.
On Wed. we had 54 degrees. Even though it was cloudy, we thought it was a nice day, and went outside.
Some of the photos in this post don’t have good lighting. I’m still trying to figure out the best settings on my phone camera.
Last night was the first night of Hanukkah. I was reminded of Blossom’s birth last year on the first evening of Hanukkah.
Today John and I celebrate being married 3 1/2 years. John treated the family to Amy’s pizzas and coconut ice cream Fri. and I made him apple crisp. Even though its not the big yearly anniversary, its become one of our traditions to celebrated the half year mark.
From the Mailbag
We received a couple boxes from my mom this week: clothes for john and Blossom, a tzedaka (giving) box and books for the children, and a surprise for me – gel pens.
I got to try them out yesterday in my quiet time journal. They are so much nicer then the cheap ones I had been using.
