Poppin In

You know it seems like I've been busy busy busy but I can't remember what I've been doing! Sigh. If I don't mark it or write it down on my calendar then I simply can't recall what I've done. It can be frustrating.

I do remember yesterday. We were heading up the Mountain to spend the day with my mil and help her make some peach jam, can peaches and pick apples. We received a phone call from a couple at church and they were having a yard sale and invited us over. She said she had lots of clothes to fit Meadow. Boy did she ever! I filled two huge boxes of clothes, everything from sweaters to skirts, shirts and dresses. She got seven pair of shoes. I was thinking about what to offer her for the whole lot of things and she said, I'm blessing you with these, I'm sewing seed. I was stunned. WOW! I know it was well over a hundred dollars. I haven't been given second hand things in a long time and I really miss it. You don't realize how much money it saves you until you go shopping and are forced to buy things new. Even if I do find them on sale for $4 or $5 which is a great deal it still doesn't compare to yard sales or hand me downs. I love em. So I've spent the day cleaning out Meadow's room and reorganizing and purging making room for her nice new things.

I was able to talk my sister in law into letting me keep her 4 week old little boy (the one who's mommy is in prison). I have been up since 5:30 this morning! Can you believe that?! Wowzers! I love it. It's awesome having him here, listening to his squeaky little noises and smelling that fresh baby scent. I get to keep him until tomorrow. If I can find my camera chip I'll post a picture of him in the morning for Wordless Wednesday.

Till then....

What a blessing! We had friends who handed down some great things for our oldest at time when they were greatly appreciated. Isn't it fun to let someone else be blessed by giving?

What a blessing!!! Happpy for you and Meadow and for the ones sowing the seeds. Those things do not go without blessings coming back to them :o)
