It’s thirty degrees outside. FREEZING. I had to walk back and forth to the chicken coop twice this morning. Once to feed them and once to water them.
We had no milk (!) in the house and I cannot rest when this family is out of milk (wish I had a cow) so I took Seth and Sarah to the grocery store and got six gallons; I think we should be all set for the week, here’s hoping. I bought some nice canned plum tomatoes and am going to make sauce later….and make a big gooey lasagna for dinner.
I carried in bag after bag of groceries, and thought how nice it was that I could get a work out as I stocked up on food for the week.
The littles are currently watching a chip n dale cartoon on YouTube. I had to laugh, because when Sarah Joy saw what I was doing (turning on YouTube) she cried out, “NO! Not Clara!” I guess she’s tired of me watching those cooking shows.
I twisted Sarah’s hair up into a tiny little bun the other day…..here she is, sitting pretty at the old easel, drawing nice.
Here she is, after I took her hair out at bedtime;
Rich had to show her what she looked like, in the mirror.
Speaking of hair styles, yesterday morning, I put some braids in the girls’ hair, for church. Grace’s hair is past her waist now.
I am so thankful for these daughters of mine.

Grace and I have been doing puzzles lately. It’s relaxing and fun. She and I can talk, tease each other, or sing as we work. Sometimes one of the boys will come along and help, but it’s mostly just the two of us. The one we are working on now is 500 pieces and we got this far on it and then Sarah destroyed it. We had to start over. Sarah promises she won’t do that again.
Happiness is picking up flowers at the grocery store, food for the soul.
