Today was 1/2 price day at the salvation army thrift store, so the girls and I packed up and went there today, along with a couple of other thrift stores and a yard sale! That was super fun! We got lots of nice things!
You can take the carpenter out of NH for a vacation, but you can't take the work ethic out of the carpenter here in Florida! That's right...Glenn opened up his Winslow Carpentry Florida division for a few days here in Ocklawaha. My folks needed a trash compactor (which we transported down here) installed, along with some other out door repair work. So Glenn got to take apart a cabinet and will install the compactor in that space and add some shelving and rebuild the cabinet door. This is great for Glenn as he loves to stay busy!
Tonight we attended and Ash Wednesday service at my parent's church. That was quite lovely, actually, and a wonderful reminder of the beginning of the lenten season!
We enjoyed corn chowder for lunch, here at home, and a lovely supper of shepherd's pie and Juniors famous salad! (he's become quite an accomplished salad maker down here!). My Mom said to me today..."I'm going to have to adopt your children!"...they've been a big help and blessing to her!
Madelyn got to work on her March edition of the newspaper, and we all took our 2 mile walk, too!
Here are some photos of our wonderful day!
|Such a deal! Wow!|
|Junior doing my Dad's tradition of giving the neighborhood doggies some treats as we walk by! This made him very popular!|
|Junior is right at home helping prep the meals in the kitchen! Elisha, too!|
|The trash compactor!|
|The newly designed cabinet to house the compactor! I'll show the finished photos tomorrow!|
