Normal Day


After working relentlessly these last few weeks to get our house ready to list, today is just a quiet day at home. I am so glad. I am thankful for the amazing number of showings we have received, but it nice to just have the place to ourselves today--so far. The boys have been playing as have I.



I have been cleaning, of course and doing laundry, but I have also made up some wood oil (2 oz mineral oil melted with two tablespoons of beeswax) for all my wooden utensils. I liked it so much I also polished several wooden pieces of furniture with it as well.

I decided it was also a good day to make more healing balm as we are quite low. These are 2 oz tins I found. I like these.

Pumpkin keeps asking when someone will buy the house and when we get to go to the new house. I just keep repeating that only God knows where our new home will be. Wish He felt like I should know. :)

As the boys are sleeping, I think I am going to make a cup of tea and go relax for a few minutes on my front porch. Wish you could join me.

EDITED LATER: WE HAVE AN OFFER AND NEED TO COUNTER TOMORROW MORNING.
PLEASE PRAY FOR WISDOM FOR US!!!

The sight of the tins make me happy, as does Pumpkin's hair. I am a little envious, I wish I had a redhead :) :) :)

Glad you are having lots of interest in your house!
And that you are able to keep up with normal activities, instead of maintaining "showcase standard" all the time.
I was hoping to make some hand milled soap tonight, but most of the day at the flea market, and trying to figure out how to put sheets on the top bunk of newly acquired bunk beds has left me WIPED OUT!

Mary Isabella and Kiley too! said...
