Just when I thought I might have a sane day...

Roger called to tell me that one of his employee's house burned down and they lost everything. He asked if I could pull together some hand-me-downs for their four year old girl.
Of course, I didn't hesitate to jump in and start sorting things out for her.

The problem is that on my "list of things to do" it says: Sort Clothes.

This is because clothing has been multiplying like bunnies in every corner of our closets, and attic, and storage room. I've been needing to pull it all out and go through it and organize it into something useful and get rid of what we don't need to keep. Thankfully, there's less to go through and organize now. Unfortunately, finding everything and going through it took a few hours. Of course, being a wee bit swamped is a very small thing in comparison to losing your home and all you own.

We have so much to be thankful for!

I need to be packing for a road trip. There won't be much blogging here for a few days... those great pictures will have to wait!

Except for this one. I took it self-portrait-style at the beach on Saturday. I'm so happy with how it turned out! I didn't even cut our heads or ears or chins off!

See you next week!


  1. Fantastic photo!!! Blessings as you "forward" the blessings you've received onto others.

  2. Did I already mention that this is a GREAT photo?! I think I've clicked over three times since you put it up just to look at it. You both look wonderful, and even better than that TOGETHER!
