Thursday at Home

Well, Michael is gone this week to NYC for a meeting with the union. He’s VP so, of course, he has to be there. Julianne and I were thinking of going with him but now I’m glad we didn’t. Everything is soooo expensive up there. He said to use the internet in his hotel it was $10 a day. Needless to say, he won’t be using it at the hotel!

Yesterday the siding was finished on the house and it looks good. My desk is now in front of my new window and I love it! I put all my potted plants on the window and they are very cheery. My computer, however, is still on the other desk but hopefully Michael will get it all hooked up before he goes away on his next trip!

I’m spending the next few days clearing out “stuff”. When we re-did all the rooms, I took out all the pictures, knick knacks, etc. and now I have no place for them. Some of the pictures I’ll be using again but not all. Most of the other things, I’m not keeping. For right now they are in several boxes awaiting a decision! I don’t know if I have time to do a yard sale but it would be nice to get a little cash. Then again, I’m so tired of this room looking like a junk heap that I’m ready to chuck it all and start over with a clean slate.

I have been working on my pantry the past few days. I’m going through and making an inventory list. I thought I knew what I had but obviously I didn’t because I found 3 cans of cocoa! So, I printed off the pantry inventory list from Organized Home and am in process of completing it. I’ve done this for the freezer but didn’t think I needed it for the pantry. Wrong!

I read this verse this morning: I will sing to the Lord, for He has been good to me (Ps. 13:6). It reminded me that I should always be rejoicing for what the Lord has done for me. He has given me the gift of His Son who died for me to save me from my sin. Now if that doesn’t cause us to sing to the Lord, nothing will. So, “sing joyfully to the Lord, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise Him. Praise the Lord with the harp; make music to Him with the ten-stringed lyre. Sing to Him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy.” (Ps. 33:1-3)
