March 12. I was thankful to see sunshine when I got up this morning. There were still lots of clouds, but no fog. There hasn’t been any fog at all this week.
Before school this morning, I started writing another song to teach my school students so they will have another one to sing during the anniversary meetings.
After doing our reading in Exodus this morning, we spent the rest of Bible class practicing music. Just about the end of class, we heard the plane coming so the kids took off for the airstrip to help Daddy. When I looked out the door, I saw fog on the approach. Where did that come from? It must have come from the other side of the mountain. It looked like the pilot may be able to find a hole though. Sure enough, he came through the fog with no problem. Oh, it was MAF. Just a few minutes behind him, though, was NTM.
After all the cargo was brought down and carriers paid, we only had a half hour or less left for phonics class. So we just did one thing today - reading workbook. While they were doing their seatwork, Daddy came in so I went out to welcome him home. I was so thankful to have him back home again. It had been a long, hard week.
I was really tired by the time school was finished, but didn’t sleep long at nap time. It was a hard day too. Some things Daddy needed help with putting away. I didn’t really do any of it until after nap. I am so thankful that Daddy had done quite a bit of it. After I loaded up the freezer, I sat in the recliner for a while and finished grading papers. Enjoyed an apple for my snack.
Daddy ground up some rice for me as I had finished up my rice flour. We talked about hiring someone to do work once in a while since neither he nor I can do much strenuous work right now. It is really hard grinding the rice so he didn’t do the whole bag. He said he is feeling better today than he had been feeling in town however.
Soon it was time to get supper. I cooked up a nice fat chicken breast and made gravy for it. Cooked the broccoli and a few of the carrots that Daddy had brought home. I had had rice all week for my main meals so didn’t really feel like rice again. Daddy had had spaghetti most of the week in town so he was tired of spaghetti. I wondered what I would cook to go with the chicken. Biscuits! That turned out to be the best thing.
While dinner was still cooking, Phinehas and Dallas came to practice keyboard. Enjoyed hearing them practice while we were waiting for dinner and while we were eating. Then there were dishes to do -- thankfully not very many. By then I was ready to sit and relax again. So went to the recliner and crocheted for a little while. Then put water on to heat for bath.
“38He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. 39(But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)” John 7:38,39
March 13. It poured and poured and poured during the night and was misty, drizzly, and foggy this morning. Soon the Lord sent us sunshine, however, for the rest of the morning. It was very humid though, and we figured more rain was on its way. Shortly after noon, the skies began to grow dark; the air became cold; and it wasn’t long before the rains came.
Amos had charge of lotu. His text was Revelation 3:8. This afternoon, I was quite busy with grading and recording grades. Then I started figuring up grade averages for their report cards until I felt a migraine headache coming. Then I put things away, lay my head back, and closed my eyes until the lights passed. That is the first migraine I have had in a week or so.
I was thankful there weren’t too many dishes this evening as I have a lot to do before Friday -- get report cards ready, and prepare games and refreshments. I also need to scan and print more music for Dallas and Phinehas. They are here now practicing keyboard.
