Michael gets a CTO off on the weeks when he preaches. He preached last Sunday. Today (Friday) was to be his day off.....so he came home early! I was proud of him for coming home early - then I found out the whole staff went home early to celebrate the end of the inspection. ::snort::
We took advantage of Michael being home to go scoop swamp water. Into my new "vintage" ball jars....with soil, straw, egg yolk...and swamp water. I'm sure wonderful new things will shortly be growing on the counters....on purpose.
We searched out a "little branch" for this year's Thankful Tree....I'm not sure THIS is exactly the branch I will use. We'll work on it tomorrow. I'm printing leaves this year here . We've enjoyed past trees we made...all the leaves we cut out and each filled in...but this house really doesn't have a wall which we want to tape or staple leaves on. And Ann's leaves are ready to go.....so I plan to make an arrangement with some "small" branches and hang the leaves on them.......
Honestly, we try too keep a thankful heart year round (thus Choosing Joy); but it is fun to list things out in the month of November. Rather than leaves and/or journals, I like the idea below this year.
Living all of life before the face of God...
