It Was a Dark and Stormy Night
What crazy weather we've been having! It's been raining heavily every day and seems to just want to continue. Last night, we got back home to the new house just in time to have the power go out. And it stayed out until the wee hours this morning. I think somewhere around 4 am, but can't swear to it since I was sound asleep lol.
We got home around 6 and thankfully my Dad, who has been visiting to help us with the move, had said before we left town, "Why don't I go by the grocery store and grab some fried chicken for dinner." So glad he did, or we would have had to go to town for dinner. As it was, I had a challenging time finding something the two year old could eat (as he is allergic to everything) that didn't require heating, or a can opener (mine is electric. I do have one that isn't ... in one of those yet-to-be-unpacked boxes). Already at 6, the clouds were so dark that we needed a flashlight to get dinner on the table. After dinner, my husband ran across the highway to our storage shed where our camper is parked, and picked up our propane lantern.
We stuck the kids in bed early :) and had a nice quiet evening just visiting. I wanted to get a lot of unpacking done, but I guess God knew I needed a break :) Anyway, it's still stormy this morning. Last night we just sat and watched the lightning pop nonstop in all directions. Pretty awesome fireworks...
I'm a born again believer in my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ the Son of God. I am a very happily married wife and a homeschooling mom of five of the greatest kids in the world. We live in a little mountain town in Wyoming, which we love. I enjoy reading and studying God's Word, homeschooling my treasures from Heaven, sewing and doing all sorts of crafts.

"The Bible calls debt a curse and children a blessing; but in our culture, we apply for a curse and reject blessings. Something is wrong with this picture." Doug Phillips

Cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow... For babies grow up, we've learned to our sorrow... So quiet down cobwebs, dust go to sleep... I'm rocking my baby and babies don't keep!!
