    I love seeing the items of your week laid out and considered–I was thinking about how neat this will be for your kiddos in coming years to see the thought and prayer that went behind the patterns of their childhoods. I keep my calendar on my computer, but something about seeing it all in a blog post shows how busy and full and fulfilling the week’s events are.

    Blessings!

    Good morning, Hadias. You amaze & inspire me with your organization! You have articulated everything you want to get done….your household will benefit by this attention to so many tasks. :o)

    For myself, my menu planning was thown off last night, as our electricity went out, & it hurt my eyes too much to try & do it by candlelight. (Hah!….some pioneer wife I would make!). Anyway, I'll get to that this a.m. I need to call for a water softener service, & I have my first load of laundry chugging away in the machine (the electricity is back on). I'll hang that, & hopefully two more loads, out on the line as soon as the dew lifts. I also need to see to the vegetable garden, & rake out all the weeds from this weekend's hoeing session. It started raining soon after I'd finished, so I didn't get the chance to clean them out & hauled down to our "pit". Hopefully, I will also have the chance to work on some knitted lace I'm making for a wedding gift….nearly halfway through the second piece!

    Just a peek at my day. There are many other things as well, but I'm not as good about organizing my thoughts as you are!! Looking forward to reading tomorrow's post…you've already whetted my appetite.

    A happy birthday to your son. I hope his special day is everything he'd like it to be. :o)
