Ever wonder what we do here in the community, us women that is? I thought I would give an example of just a day here for me.
I’ll keep it plain and simple:
6:45 Woke up
6:46 Put water on to boil for tea
6:55 Got dressed
7:00 Said goodbye to my husband and I went to the field to weed
9:30 Took a tea break and had some cereal
10:00 Went back out to weed
12:15 Finished weeding so decided to do up the dishes
12;:30 Cleaned the filters in our Berkey water system
1:00 Washed a load of my white laundry and blankets (by hand of course and hung out to dry)
2:30 Put away dishes
2:40 Filled up the Berkey with fresh water
2:45 Sat down in order to write some of this list and get a cold drink of ice water. Also read some of Stephen Charnock book Christ Crucified.
3:00 Went through all my material and kept only what I will be needing right away and put the rest in storage. Don’t like clutter!
3:15Walked over to the community center to sew a plain jumper and ended up talking with Kelly and Carol Sustaire for a bit about hoop hoes verses regular hoes.
4:30 Finished the sewing and went back home and noticed the Bunkers Chickens were free ranging so I ended up giving them some of our left over food.
4:35 Went out and got the clothes of the line…. nice and crisp and good smelling.
4:50 Finished folding the laundry and putting it away and decided to make a spinach avocado omelet for supper the spinach came from the Bunkers garden… yumm.
5:10 Everything is ready to prepare for supper, now just to wait a bit longer before my husband gets home. So I decided to sew up the neckline of my jumper while I wait. Then decided I better spruce up a bit before he gets home. It is always nice let him now you care how you look for him.
5:50 Starting to cook supper , still waiting for husband.
6:10 Still waiting …….Finished sewing the neckline on my jumper
6:20 He’s home! And we are sitting down to supper and a movie.
7:30 Movies still going… supper was wonderful and I decide to sew the rest of my jumper. All that is needed is the arm holes done.
8:00 Went over to the Bunkers to check out the tarantula spider that Jennifer had. Very cool. Danielle caught it. Also made Mr. Woods his ice cream cone I said I would make for him when he felt better.
8:30 Well I am hot and tired and in need of a nice cool bath
9:00 Ready for bed and now to read some scriptures from the book of John.
10:00 Well night all.
Okay so not so exciting! But it is a day filled with the blessing and provisions of God. I am thankful that each day I may see the Lord in all that I do and see how He provides for us and allows us to live in community and live separate lives for Him. I am thankful!
