Today has been a bustling kind of day around the cottage. I continue to declutter and move things out that we are no longer using or wearing. Rachel decluttered her closet today, too.
Tim decluttered the horse stalls, with Kyle's help, and our neighbor is appreciative of the manure for his garden! Now Tim is burning paper trash, and two Christmas trees (ours and my parents'). It's great to have some land to be able to do this and the zoning in our township to do it as well.
I've had my Pandora on today, not staying super long on any one station, and I listened to two podcasts by Sally Clarkson. So good and encouraging.
I've been knitting again, I like having handwork to do when listening or watching a movie. I got Rachel caught up on Victoria on PBS. Are any of you watching it?
Its dusk now and the sky is clear, its going to be cold tonight I suspect. I have a stack of books next to my chair - my Bible, Different by Sally and Nathan Clarkson, The Silent Songbird by Melanie Dickerson.
I need to get dinner progressing, so I need to get going. I did want to say thank you for all your great comments this week. I appreciated the tone of civility on a difficult subject.
Tomorrow, after church, we are going to spend the afternoon with dear friends who live about an hour away. We've missed seeing them with the busyness of the holidays and sickness.
We are all excited!
