Thoughtless Thursday

I am really going to try to start blogging every weekday, but Thursdays will definitely be the toughest day for this as it is our "town" day - and we usually have at least 4 appointments to go to, shopping to do, filling up the gas tanks, and other errands to we plan a short school day (only 2 subjects), and I am usually wiped out by the end of the day.

So, my posting, if any will be short and sweet - maybe just some bloggers who do a Wordless Wednesday - any ideas on a Thursday title that would work for short blog posts, or no words....Thoughtless Thursdays might work....

My Sweet Valentine - you can see the afghan I am crocheting for Daryl just behind her....

The results of Monday's early morning madness (remember the fire?) - the bread didn't taste like smoke at all and baked fine even though we had to open the door and turn off the oven right in the middle of baking the bread!  I was able to make 6 gallons of strawberry/raspberry freezer jam (bought gallon buckets of frozen berries from Barbie's Berries - where we pick every year!)

The beautiful sunset night before last

Rachel's homemade volcano...needs work, but it was fun

Esther like the shoes she was wearing today - she wore them a year ago, but now they are getting too small...they are my favorite too - pink and white Mary Janes...


  1. What a lovely blog of what appears to be a blessed family. I was doing a search on the Stepping Heavenward book and your Wordpress blog entry from last year came up. It was a wonderful post! I tried to comment and couldn't, then saw the link to this blog. I am inviting people who appreciate Elizabeth Prentiss to visit my new blog entitled "Writings of Elizabeth Prentiss." You can find it on my profile if you are interested.

    It's nice making your acquaintance! I see you like Elizabeth George too. She's another favorite of mine. You also like many of the same movies as I do! Guess we're kindred.

    Best wishes with your large number of blessings!

  2. Ruth your homemade bread and jelly look delicious!
