Saturday highlights

This was one of those busy, productive days where a LOT got done, but not everything on the old “to do” list. Because of that, I don’t really feel that I’m done with the day’s work. However, I’m running out of steam, so I’m sneaking in this little post at the end of the day. I did promise after all that I would do at least one blog post per day in 2008.

Today Rebecca and I spent a lot of time at the Department of Licensing so she could take the written portion of the driver’s test. I am happy to report that she passed with flying colors, and the driving portion of the test is scheduled for two weeks from today. (We needed to schedule the drive for a Saturday so that she can use Kayla’s Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera (automatic transmission) rather than the little Suzuki Grand Vitara (5 on the floor). Most of her practice driving has been in the automatic. That’s why the eager licensed-driver-to-be has to wait another two weeks yet.)


Since we were already in town we stayed for a while to run a few more errands, and then met up with Sarah to fetch her home for the weekend.

In our absence, Debra and Lydia and Seth did a lot of cleaning and vacuuming and neatening of the house. Thank you very much, young’ns. There was nothing left for Mommy to clean.


We also found that Rick had been busy with the chain saw, and had even recorded a video of himself taking down a large, damaged, wrong-leaning tree. (He doesn’t just take down trees for fun.) I don’t know how to upload videos to YouTube yet. If someone shows me how, you would enjoy that noisy video.

Tomorrow is Sarah’s turn to help with serving coffee and refreshments after the morning worship service, so she spent some time in the kitchen baking ginger cookies and orange sour cream cookies. We were out of homemade bread, so I also did some baking (six loaves of honey whole wheat bread).


As I was busily going about the duties of the day, I was also thinking in the back of my mind about the possibility of trying to write some other type of poetry (in addition to the Friday Haiku). How about a Saturday Sonnet? I’ve never written a sonnet, but I think it would be fun to try. If I come up with anything decent, I’ll let you know.


I’m thankful that the weather forecast for ice rain keeps getting pushed further and further into the future, so it looks like we’ll be able to drive safely to church tomorrow. I’m looking forward to that, and I hope you have a blessed Lord’s Day as well.
