November 12. Just finished the dishes and have a little time to start writing in my journal before the kids come to practice for Friday’s program. Countdown is getting lower. Day after tomorrow is the big day. Looks like they should be ready with no problem.
This morning after lotu, we got all the background scenery set up and then had dress rehearsal. We finished around 11:40, and the kids all went home. I put our dinner on to warm, and it was just about ready when the plane came. So Daddy went on up to the airstrip to talk to the pilot and see if SIL had a booking for us to go out in a couple weeks. I ate my dinner and waited a little while for Daddy to come, but he didn’t come so I finally went to nap. Not long after I lay down, he came in. He warmed up his dinner and ate, and then he lay down for nap too.
This afternoon, I put the other tree together. Then I planned the order for Friday’s program before going to the kitchen to make lemon sugar cookies and some tortillas for my supper.
“And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone.” Matthew 14:23
November 13. A good bit of rain during the night last night and more rain this afternoon, but no heavy rain.
We had our last drama practice this morning. Tomorrow is the big day. Took a lot of pictures this morning while we were practicing. After practice, I talked with the students about the order of the program and the plans for tomorrow, and what they plan to do next year.
After they all left, Daddy and I went for a short walk. It was very humid out, and my knees were really feeling it. My back was also hurting from sitting on that keyboard seat so long. I do try to get up and sit in a chair when they have speaking parts.
We had an early lunch, and I had an early nap. SIL came by for coffee because weather prevented them from getting into the place where they tried to go. So Daddy went up to the airstrip.
Had a pretty good sleep, but not as long as I would have liked since my upper back started hurting and couldn’t get comfortable.
After nap, I cut up a nice red popo, washed my hair, wrote a note on the birthday card for Mrs. H. so I could get that sent off to the girls to print and deliver, and wrote an e-mail. Put a pot of rice and soup beans on to cook and started an e-mail to Christy and Connie. After supper, I finished that e-mail and sent the two e-mails.
Lewis received an e-mail back from Dr. Bud about his biopsy. (Dad had a sore on his arm that would not heal, and he had that biopsied on his last trip to town.) The results were as follows: You had an ulcerated solid nodular basal cell carcinoma that had invaded to the level of the deep reticular dermis, but no evidence of deeper invasion. The lateral and deep margins are clear. Praise the Lord that everything else is clear and he doesn’t need any other treatment.
Got pictures transferred to the computer and started editing them. Then the kids came to decorate the meeting room. After that, I finished editing the pictures, put water on to heat for dishes, and got a snack. Now I need to go and wash dishes.
“13But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up. 14Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.” Matthew 15:13,14
