Hey there everyone!! Sorry it's been so long since I've updated, I've just been so busy that I didn't have the time to sit down, let alone type, at the computer. So, here I am after all that time, giving you my weekly update thing-a-ma-jig.
This past week, as I mentioned above, was, has been and is being very busy. Today it was self-inflicted, but the past few days I've just been feeling run off my feet!
I worked extra time at job and I was painting! And not just regular painting, I was painting shelves. I'm not sure how many of you have done that before, but if you have you know that it is absolutelly horrible on your back! In addition to this, I was also working like crazy on a powerpoint (actually two) for my Dad to take with him to show in the churches he will be visiting. It's just that making them is soooooo time consuming... not complaining too much, however, because I really enjoy the designing part! (btw, I think that the powerpoints turned out very well, though I might be a little biased ;^)! ).
As of last night my Dad left for the States. We went to town and had a fun time going to the junk yard (mostly for the boys, though I found a cool chair) and eating pizza!!!!!!! Yummm! At 8 p.m. we saw him off and then drove on home. The house seemed strangely quiet when we got home, I suppose that if I miss him today, a week from now is going to be really bad. Sniff. He's going to be there for two weeks, returning on the 6th. Pray for us (and him, of course :) please!
Today I've been working on a desk for my room (pictures will be posted when I'm done). I have a friend who is welding the metal legs together as we speak so that I can finish it up. I can't wait!! I've been wanting one for so long, but I'd never found one that I liked. The trick is making it yourself.
The weather here is still hot (but getting cooler!). It's actually possible to sleep at night without a fan! I know, I know, most of you would probably take our hot weather over your cold weather any day (and to tell you the truth, I wouldn't want to trade), but when you're in the hot weather it's hard to imagine being cold. I mean, we still go swimming every day!
This is the picture I'm going to share with you: Evie working on her painting skills (and getting quite good, I might add!)
And so, life in Mexico goes on. By God's grace we make it through!
Thank you for your time! Have a blessed day!
