December 26. A hot, sweaty day. Bonita didn’t come to work today because she went with the youth group to dig a garden for Mike. She did come and do dishes this evening. It started raining just before 7:00 this evening, and only four people showed up for Bible school. Since nobody else showed up, there was no Bible school.
After breakfast and quiet time this morning, Daddy and I did the laundry, and I hung out the clothes. There actually weren’t many clothes to wash today, but I washed quite a few curtains.
While the clothes were washing, I washed our bedroom windows. After I finished hanging out the clothes, I washed windows in the laundry room and bathroom. Then I relaxed in the recliner a while and crocheted. When I was cleaning the top of the closet yesterday, I found four nice quilted place mats. I thought maybe if I join them together I can make them into a baby blanket. So I started crocheting around the place mats; and this afternoon, I started joining the pieces together. Just have one more piece to join.
After that, I worked on the PNG history/geography course until almost lunch time. Worked on it more this afternoon and this evening. Just one more unit to finish and check over.
Also did more cleaning out of things on our bedroom shelves. Maybe I’ll get finished with that tomorrow.
“43But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister: 44And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all. 45For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.” Mark 10:43-45
December 27. 7:45 p.m. Bonita just finished doing dishes about fifteen minutes ago. Then we figured up her hours and her pay for the week.
It has been an overcast day, not too hot, but not too cool either.
There were a lot of people here for lotu this morning. Mike’s teaching this morning was geared for the children - “Children obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.”
After lotu, Bonita came in and worked for a while. The men worked on the church property – cutting grass, making repairs where needed, and making a roof over the front steps. Then the youth came in to practice music so Bonita went and practiced with them. Then she came back and finished working.
Daddy got e-mails in, and I tried to read e-mails and print more songbooks that had been ordered. Was interrupted quite a few times by ladies who wanted to buy yarn or by people who wanted to order songbooks. I did get six copies of songbooks printed before Daddy turned off the generator, except for the covers. This evening I did six more copies plus the covers.
We sent the youth out about 10:45 so we could call Christy and Connie. Enjoyed a nice chat with them. After that, I did more cleaning out of our bedroom shelves. Didn’t get as much of it done today as I had hoped, but maybe Monday.
When I got up from nap this afternoon, I sat in the recliner and crocheted. Added the last placemat to the three I had already joined together. Then started crocheting a border to go all the way around. Got half way around and then went and worked on the history/geography lessons for a while. About 4:30, I started making lemon sugar cookies. After I got those in the oven, I got supper on the table.
