Here are some random posts that I had on my Nook while the power cord was lost:
written 12/15/13 Our little cat likes the Christmas tree. She is playing with it a little bit. The morning after we put the tree up there was a chair close to the tree with the back of the chair by the tree. She was standing on the back of the chair playing with one of the ornaments. I am not really worried that she will break an ornament. Most of our glass ornaments were broken when the kids were young. One of kids was reaching for a ornament on a higher branch when they were young and pulled really hard. The tree broke in half. No one was hurt. Most of the breakable ornaments were broken and lot of the lights broke. We bought a new tree and put the unbroken ornaments back on it. Now we make an ornament each year but it is usually the flat wooden ones that we decorate with markers and our names and the year. If the cat pulls down an ornament it probably won’t break, but some are decorated and she might eat part of it.
I have started making my New Years Resolutions. I am not sure if the kids make any. I remind them about making them each year, but they decide for themselves what they want to do. To me it is a good time to look back on where I am and where I want to be. I do this twice a year. Once at New Years and once at Easter. Jesus died for us and washed away our sins on Easter, so it is a good time to see if any changes are needed.
Tuesday 12.17.13 My mom has been recording some family history on the tape recorder. The first few days she recorded a lot, but now she records on it now and then. I need to get the recorder back from her and record the information on a second recorder so that it will be in two places.
It is about twenty five degrees today. By Friday it should be forty degrees and raining.
I was driving home yesterday and saw some kids walking home. While I was waiting at a stop light the kids came to a waist high pile of snow in their path. Instead of walking around it, they crawled over it and slid/rolled down it. They were having a great time. I remember being that young. We haven’t built a fort or had a neighborhood snow ball fight in years.
One of the best decisions that we made in the last year was to get a second cat. She has added so much to our family. I have made my New Years resolutions. There are twelve of them. Most of them involve helping my kids do something, so they will be ongoing.
12/29/13 We will probably take the Christmas tree down next weekend. It was forty-two degrees today. Yesterday the kids and I took a walk in the local cemetery. It was nice to get outside on a nice day. I had heard that this was going to be a cold and snowy winter, but it hasn’t been too bad so far…but we are only in December.
written 2/10/12 – We haven’t done anything with the family tree on the dining room wall lately. Maggie has printed her family tree from the computer.What we should do is write the names and relationships on papers and hang them up. The reason that we stopped is that we didn’t have any pictures of the next generation. We could hang up names and when we get pictures we can add them in. This would keep the project moving.
We need to get a back-up ink for our printer. Since Maggie has a big project due this month we will be using a lot of ink.
I need to finish updating the calendar. It was started at the end of December.The appointments have been added, but the repetitive events are not on it yet. I need to go through it again, month by month, looking at last years calendar and finish it. Also the dinner jobs need to be written in the corner. Their dinner jobs are, napkins, silverware and drinks. The kids keep the job for a month and then switch. They are written on the corner of each month of the calendar because we can’t remember each month who has what job, much less to remember them day to day. My dinner job each day is to make dinner.The kids do help make dinner now and then.
When did you start helping to make dinner? What is your favorite dinner?
2014 April’s Bible verse: “These are the things that you shall do: Speak the truth to one another, render in your gates judgments that are true and make for peace, do not devise evil in your hearts against one another, and love no false oath, for all of these things I hate, says the Lord.” Zechariah 8:16,17
