We Crushed It!

When did Wednesdays become so FRANTIC?  I need to remember they were busy at Beale too...PWOC and then a bit of school, followed by Bible Study/Youth Group. LOL

I felt hopeful this morning. By 0830 the kids had enjoyed a sit down breakfast, two instant pots were going - one with a roast (for BBQ sandwiches @ dinner) and one with yogurt, the fridge had been cleaned out, an appointment made for it to be fixed on Friday, I had two nice conversations with out of state friends,  and the kids were doing school.
Note this photo was taken at 0900 and it's just lighting up outside 

 At 1000 the kids begin Japanese lessons. 2 1/2 hours later they are finished and Stacia and I head across town for sewing club. It takes about 25-30 minutes to get there.

The elastic is in! 
Home Ec 

We have one more week of club. That sure went fast! I could have sworn we had a few more weeks left.  The leader won't be doing another sewing club - BUT she is getting a business license and will be doing private classes and lessons. I think we'll continue as it's something Stacia really wants to learn and I'm learning alongside her. In other words, I can't teach her these skills at all. LOL

Stacia and I were able to steam some broccoli, bake some fries, make some BBQ sauce, shred the beef and make sandwiches all by 5:00 p.m.

We were out the door for Life Group (Michael and I) and Youth Group (kids) by 6:15 p.m.  I was careful to note the ten names of those in the group.  We visited a bit with Pastor and a few others while we waited for the kids. It was invigorating to meet some new folks and start to sense the glimmerings of community at a new church body.

Wednesdays are doable with a bit of planning.....we can do it.

Best of all - it's the time of year when we can turn on our lights at night and in the morning. I know this as neighbors have theirs on.
