Today will be hot again, so I am headed outside early, to beat the heat and to mow. Then a bit of tidying work in the front garden...
We have a new family from church coming for lunch tomorrow. I am going to slow roast a turkey overnight. You can read about how to make "perfect every time turkey" in this post. I do this anytime during the year that I make a turkey.
The church we attend is family integrated and we have lots of children! With all the children there were no girls in Rachel and Sarah's age range - just older and younger. So I started to pray and the Lord brought this sweet family with 10 children! 7 boys, 3 girls. The girls are ages 12, 9, and 1. Twelve and nine are exactly my girl's ages! They are getting to know each other and are looking forward to tomorrow.
There is also mutual interest in all things Tolkien. Lindsay is excited as it seems as if there maybe folks who will play LOTR Trivial Pursuit with her!
Kyle is excited because he is going to have 4 boys to play with! We see lots of trains and swinging happening tomorrow.
Now back to today. After mowing, I have to do some sewing for Rachel. She has gotten tall and when we cleaned and purged the younger girl's room this week we found that she has outgrown many of her clothes! While that made Sarah (the recipient of said clothes) very happy, Rachel needs skirts. We bought fabric yesterday and today hope to get some sewing done. I love the fabric she picked. I will try to show you tomorrow!
Have a great day - for those of you in most of the country, try to stay cool.
