More goodness...

Today there was more good stuff. I made 12 jars of strawberry jam...my very first time ever making jam. It turned out quite nice.
Jer sold his drums which is going to pay for our income tax! No, no, don't panic, I didn't make him sell his only drum set...he had 2 and he sold the older one that he had fixed up for that purpose. I've been bugging him to get them sold because the taxman was going to be calling and so he listed them on Monday night on the Buy and Sell and they were sold 24 hours later. The guy came this afternoon and picked them up and we are that much closer to being out of debt! Yay!

Even though there was more unnecessary rain this afternoon and evening, there was another beautiful rainbow. Click on it to see a better image.
My dad is feeling better. The recovery is still a long journey ahead, but it's coming. He'll probably be in the hospital for another week or so. I've been very, very blessed by the outpouring of love, emails, phone calls and support. It's been amazing to see family, friends and church body pull together and love on my family. Hopefully one day I can tell you all the story...until then, know that all prayers are being heard.

I hope you are all having a great week...full of goodness!

Congrats on your dad feeling better and the jam. I'm in for raspberry one of these days. My freezer is getting packed with them and it's jam making time.

After the apricots.

Happy Days to you!

finally catching up . . .

hey, that rainbow is God :) On our way from our old house (for the final time) and to the new one, we saw a rainbow. My dad, my mom and I were all in 3 separate cars and we all saw it. It was so special :) (I hope to post about it later!)

xo . . . I have missed you!
