Thursday, Nov. 3

I really need to go make some coffee. I've been up a while but things are slow this morning. I got my sheets halfway changed and then was sidetracked by the children. Then I somehow ended up on here.

Yesterday I went to the hospital with my mom to see my grandmother. She had surgery for intestinal cancer. I hope they got it all. She is doing fairly well considering. She's a tiny woman and that big hospital bed swallows her. I hope she can come home soon. The doctor wants her to go to a rehab place but she has plenty of family and friends to take care of her right at home. Also, her sister in law (my great aunt) is a retired nurse... anyway hopefully the doctor will change his mind. She is on liquids for a week. A friend brought in chocolate bars yesterday and I about had a fit! That was so mean as this lady is also a nurse and knows she couldn't eat them.

Today is bedroom day. My bedroom is in pretty good shape so I just need to finish the bed and sweep the floor. Then I want to take some of the children upstairs to help me pick up the playroom. It won't take long for that either. I have about three loads of laundry to do today. I just might be able to fold the two loads I didn't get to yesterday as well. Then I'll be all caught up! Cool! Laundry has always been my biggest challenge. So if I can keep this habit going- and the washer stands faithful in continuing to work- then I should be able to keep the ball rolling.

The floors needing the most attention today are the kitchen and dining room floors. I'll feel better with that done!

We're working on creation in science and so this is neat to have the littles learning what we take for granted in knowing. It's easy to forget that the children don't know what we do. We have begun using Exploring God's Creation. This is to supplement the Prairie Primer.

We have a lot more school to do as we didn't do any yesterday. This year seems to be going pretty well. So this gives me peace of mind.

Supper? Hmmm, I might make some Chicken Divan. Dalton has been craving curry for a while and that has a bit of curry powder in it. We all love Indian/Sri Lankan/ Oriental food so much. That means a lot of curry!

Have a great day in the Lord!

I will be praying for your grandma. You are keeping busy. Chow-chow is one thing I have never canned. It sounds like a great way to use up produce from the garden.

Have a wonderful day with your family.
