We started off the week by swimming at the creek. This is the "third crossing" down the dirt road from our house: less than 2 miles away.
I took many pictures! Almost every time I tried to take a picture, there was a behind facing me. Once every butt was aimed at me. I couldn't resist. Ha ha.
I got a bit frustrated and had to ask that they all look at me. And this is what they gave me.....
The duck pose!
NOTE": Amelia was at EFY (church camp) this week.
We also canned some lovely tree ripened peaches. Scott and Naomi walked through every step of the process with me. Elanor helped a bit also.
Eric installed the flooring in the pantry, finished it with trim, and set up the shelves.
I have a functioning pantry!
We bought more shelving units than would fit the pantry and put those in the laundry room for now.
It feels wonderful that things are starting to have a place, rather than shifting and reconfiguring piles.
The reoccurring thought that has occupied my mind lately is prioritizing. Am I prioritizing the right things, the best things? Are my priorities aligned with Eric, and more importantly - are they in harmony with God? Do I have effective systems in my home? I have been telling myself that I'll get to that when the house is finished, or when we get fencing in, or when, when, when..... I realized that I have been waiting for an event in order to change the things I know I need to change, rather than making a different choice now. Realization is half the battle. Change is happening!
I am grateful for the Holy Ghost who guides, directs, and prompts me to change for the better.
