I have been checking this Blog and there are never any new posts! Someone told me we have to do that ourselves, so we will try this thing.
We have had a real cold blustery day and riding my bike into the north wind was a bit extreme. Dustin thinks his ride to the high school was colder. Mike (our pastor) is in Haiti this week and I hope he enjoys the relief from winter.
I have men's prayer time in an hour and then at 9 we have an entire staff meeting at the Heartland Inn. I have to give a 5-10 minute speech and it is supposed be very uplifting. It was not really called a staff meeting but a 'Rah Rah' meeting! Can you imagine an accountant trying to be motivational? Any way it should be easier than preaching on Sunday.
Let the renovations begin!! That's right...finally. So far we have painted the living room and changed the carpet (I know, kinda backwards when you think that we'll be doing some removing of walls and plastering, etc., but the old LR carpet was sooo worn it had to go first). We scraped the stipple off the ceiling in the kitchen/dining room/hallways. (That was an ugly discouraging job!!) Then there was lots of plastering to be done before any painting could happen. Undercoating is now done and it's time to pick colors. Sara wants to paint the kitchen sundried tomato - sounds interesting - what do you think? We'll try to post some pictures as we go along.
I hope this shows up where it is supposed to.
