Yay for great weekend weather! Saturday here was rain and snow, but yesterday was clear. A bit chilly, but sunshine is just fine with me. ;)I grew up going to church so it was kinda cool to me when I recognised the stories as I started reading more of the Bible when I was older. Kinda like, "Oh, this stuff is actually in the Bible? I thought it was just made up!" ;) I've had the boys watch Veggie Tales a couple times and should encourage them to get their lessons from that video series and the children's Bible my mum gave us recently.Apparently the work with the pens that Hubby's been doing is partly just fun, but also to perfect which technique to use for the finish he'll put on the fishing rods he's going to make for the boys. I also had no clue you could make custom fishing rods until last year. Now he has more tools to do the job than he did for previous ones (one rod for himself and one for his dad) so it shouldn't take as long. He shapes cork for the handle, attaches the eyelets with different coloured thread and then adds finish to the handle and thread. Looked quite professional on the other rods, so I'm hoping he'll be really pleased with the next ones.I know I've heard a bit about the political process before meaning you had to focus on it totally and not work, but I guess I didn't think about any conflicts between that and the natural provider role. I'll be praying your husband is at peace with whatever route he takes.
Off to do a little reading for the second half of Ben's nap, then it'll be time to make supper!
As you might have guessed, we had a busy weekend!
If you ever want to review for Tyndale, do a search for Tyndale Blog Network. They offer quite a lot of non-fiction to review and there was even a DVD prior to Christmas. When I was done with it, I passed it to the pastor's wife and then to my mum. :) I still think of reading fiction more often, but I think the opportunity to review non-fiction from a Christian publisher is awesome. :D
I'm definitely blessed to be able to do the errands during the week. We stopped at Wal-Mart today and I was shocked at how many people are in the store on a Saturday vs a weekday. I don't like shopping on the weekends, too busy! Might need to do so tomorrow for Easter baskets and filler, otherwise will probably go Monday night so Hubby's here with the kids.
Yay for family over for Easter! We've done family Easter dinner at least a couple times in the last 6 years (since we moved back here from Eastern Canada, where Hubby went to university) and also once or twice with the ILs. Now we're usually at our own home for holiday dinners but fit in a visit close to both sets of parents sometime around the holiday. I should see my parents on Wednesday if I go to a career fair at the community college in my hometown. (Just to see what's out there for career options. So far, my plan when the boys are in school is to apply for a job in the credit union. Playing with other people's money is fun. ;) )
The boys were crazy after supper tonight, so when Hubby left to game with friends (an unusual Saturday outing since one of the guys worked last night and couldn't make the normal time) I took the boys out in boots and their warm spring jackets for some time in the rain. It ended up being a short walk around our yard looking for puddles to splash in. Wet but so fun for them and I enjoyed their delight at it!
Almost time for Earth Hour. I'm going to cheat a little and use the always-on wifi connection to listen to Sirius on my MP3 player since it's also Android. This way I can turn out the lights, switch off the laptop and still tune in to The Message Amped, which I never catch when Hubby's home Saturdays. ;) Maybe I'll use a flashlight to help me finish a snail-mail letter during the lights-out hour. LOL
Have a great weekend! :)
