Weekly Wrap-Up: The Week that Barely Happened
We had quite a lot to do this week, outside of schooling. For this reason, we didn't complete everything on our schedule. We will, in time. Hubs is still gone. His work got delayed since their parent company is located in Tokyo. They are doing their best to carry on as usual, but getting people and shipments here from Japan is tough right now. Parts of Japan is rationing electricity now as well, so production has slowed tremendously after being shut down for a while. He's been gone for three weeks and now has one more to go. I hope that plan pans out. We miss him!
Thursday was gorgeous! I planned on making green eggs for breakfast, or lunch, but St. Patrick's Day nibbles were provided for us at Bible study in the morning, so I sat my plans aside and absorbed the creativity of others! We ran some errands in the warm sunshine and then came home and played outside. Later on, we went to the Upward Award Program. We thoroughly enjoyed the Christian comedian/vantriloquest/magician. He brought me to tears when he extended an invitation for children and adults to accept the Lord into their lives. Hear the prayers of the children and some adults gave me chills from head to toe as tears welled up in my eyes and streamed down my cheeks. I pray I never forget that moment.
Friday didn't really happen. Or, did it? We read some, and decided that the chirping birds needed to be fed. We made some pinecone bird feeders.
First, we spread peanut butter on the pinecone, and then rolled it in bird seed. Voila!
Half our weekend is busy, so I'm glad to have tonight to just chill out. I've got my feet up and a pillow behind my back (it's hurting again), and the kids are next door playing. This could be a good evening!
