Yesterday, I felt like we were a "normal" American family. Usually, my Saturdays start with me going to the market at around 6AM...buying my meat, fruits, veggies and rice for the week. Then, I come home and deal with it...dividing my meat into ziploc bags and putting it in the freezer...washing and prepping veggies, etc. Sometimes it means that I make food and freeze it, etc. Anyway, all the prepping of food I do for the next week...often takes me the majority of my Saturday.
But yesterday was different...we spent the most of the day working in our yard...Come on...isn't that what normal Americans do on Saturday?!? Brian & I have moved sooo many times in our lives...and sooo many times since we've been married...we pretty much feel like the house we are living in is always just temporary. Which is how we are supposed to feel as Christians, Right?!? I tell myself that so, I don't get depressed. haha Well, we don't know how long the Lord has us here...or how long we'll be living in this house...but it's the 1st place that we've ever really done yard work... Sure, we've mowed the grass, rake leaves, shoveled snow in our previous places... But, yesterday...we actually, bought and planted plants in our yard and flowerbeds. CRAZY!!! And the kids had a blast "helping" us.
Skye mowing the lawn...Ummm, Skye, there isn't any grass right there yet.
Thought some of you would like this one...
Anyway...I'm not sure what "normal" people do on Saturdays...cuz, well, I'll be the first to admit...that we are NOT normal. :) But we had an awesome day together as a family. We've been sooo busy lately...it was nice to take a day and do something together.
