Our house is cleaner than it's been in years! Thanks to the kids help I can say this. I am afraid I have let things slide terribly this past year. Once I got started in the yard I didn't care about the inside of the house too much. Big mistake! Although it's probably one I'll make again and again. I seem to be very good at letting things slide and then go on a cleaning frenzy once someone is coming.
Donald's brother and family are on their way now. I played hookey from enrichment classes and boy am I glad I did. Although I have worked like a demon was on my heels all week I have still spent the entire morning doing last minute things. We are SO excited that they are coming! It's going to be a great weekend.
Wednesday night Rebekah told me our oven wasn't working properly. She was in the middle of making a cake and when she turned it on there was no noise. We have lived here for almost 13 years and the fan has always made noise once you turned the oven on to bake. I had cleaned the oven this week so I figured something had just gone out. The repairman pulled it out and checked and the blade was off the cooling fan! It has been working incorrectly all these years. He said he supposed the fan was what was making the noise because it is so quiet now! Once it came off the noise was gone. It is like I have a new oven. I baked brownies for tonight and enjoyed the quietness of my baking.
That was really a blessing from God. Thank you, Father! Amen.
