I tell you what, I really needed a break, so I took a vacation from a lot of things, including blogging.
Once the spring and summer adrenaline rush was passed, and I slowed down a little, it got to where I felt like I was in molasses and needed to rest. Autumn has arrived just in time.
Our adventures lately included not getting any income from my missing husband at all. Last I heard there is a warrant out for his arrest until he comes up with the money he owed. So life has been a bit tougher financially. Wouldn't you know, my big car insurance bill came due. Anyhow, we have received help from our church family, and we have found another temporary cleaning job to get us through this crisis. But it's been a bit exhausting for both of us. We really needed some time off, and I'm trying to hold back on the things we are doing so I don't end up in a padded room.
We had to repair our electric fence, which meant a new battery and charger unit. Ouch!
We got to spend some time ministering to others. I'll try to get to sharing some of those pics. They make me smile!
Here is another view of our Autumn skies. I love blue with big puffies.
On Friday we drug out the framing for our sukkah and put it together.
Sukkah means portable dwelling, in Hebrew. We built one as part of our learning in history and taking part in Sukkot, one of the Lord's festivals.
Getting ready to staple the fabric to the sides.
And here is the main part all done. We have yet to put the pine bows across the top, where we strung rope across to hold them.
Sadly, all week is to be cool and showery. Not much fun for an outdoor, week-long celebration with friends, which is what Sukkot is supposed to be.
Who IS that masked man?
