I’d really like to use this blog as blogs were intended to be used; kind of a daily on line diary of the happenings here at Big Oak Ridge.
Unfortunately, there never seems to be enough time in a day …
Monday night I attended my first township meeting (see citizens for a free pa for information on that).
Paula wrote an article for the local paper about the March on Washington (never heard anything back).
Tuesday night I went to prayer meeting.
Paula washed all the outside toys for the play yard and washed the truck.
Wednesday we mowed grass (fast and furious!) got MOST of the yard done by dark. It wasn’t the best mowing job we’ve ever done, but at least we don’t have to use a machete to get from the house to the chicken coop.
Thursday we picked tomatoes. We’ve started putting the garden to bed, so we’re pulling plants as we harvest. We got some more cucumbers and squash also. In the process of harvesting the tomatoes we found two “volunteer” potato plants with some nice potatoes on them!
Friday Paula processed tomato juice, mopped the floors, made some more pickled peppers, and did the laundry. Friday afternoon Paula paid bills (we had a REAL MIRACLE there! Thank you JESUS!), took Shelli and the grandkids to do some errands. I met up with them after work and we had dinner at Long John Silver’s.
I’ve spent a lot of time this week on the new web site, Citizens for a Free Pennsylvania (so has Ryan). We’ve got it pretty much up and running now; all we need is some volunteer “cub reporters” to attend meetings and report back on issues and items of interest.
Today I became a “township worker” – I went and purchased a truck load of unwashed limestone and filled in some holes on my road. I got another load of 1B limestone and fixed the front patio area by the ponds. We hosted my mom and our son Jon for dinner; Jon is staying with us for the weekend. Tomorrow “Big Oak Ridge Fellowship of Believers” (our home group ) will be here.
