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.

The elastic is in!
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.
