This and That

The October Angel Food Box really created a lot of interest and we've been asked about November's box. We will pick up the November box on the 22nd and will take pictures and post them as soon as we are able. I am not sure if we will be doing it again after that.

Clint was offered work last weekend, so he took it. It's been harder to come by lately, but they usually have a lull in the fall.

We took the shuttle bus to the shop for the transmission overhaul Friday. We are suppose to find out tomorrow what it will be needing for the upgrade. We'd rather it have more done so we can get the 3 year warranty. The mechanic said we'd get it back in a week, but you know how that goes. There's always some obscure part they need from Timbuktu.

I've been up and down with the HG. Some days are OK and others well, if I were a horse, they'd have to shoot me. :-P I've been having BH contractions every 3-4 minutes for 72+ hours now. They stop for a few hours after I throw up and then pick back up again. I've done this before, but not this close together for this long. Clint knows how to check for effacement and dilation and said there is only a very slight change so there's nothing to worry about as far as an imminent birth. He's pretty handy to have around.

Clint took me "out" to lunch Sunday. I've not been feeling up to going to stores or any where really, so he bought take out and we parked the car at the boat ramp at a beach near us. We had privacy, beautiful waterfront dining and the antics of the hungry seagulls to entertain us. We often go there to take a quiet moment together.

Today, while it is warmer, Brandon is splitting wood and Joshua and Caleb are stacking it. Amanda is in the house with the girls doing a quick pick up through each room downstairs and then they will be outside to help too. I'll be outside to make sure everyone is being safe and the stacks are done correctly. We have been told to expect snow flurries or a light dusting tonight. (We have been homeschooling on Saturdays so we can afford to take the time off today.)

We had a good day of worship yesterday and are getting excited because our big study on Bible doctrine is almost completed. We've all learned so much and have enjoyed it a lot.
