The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of Man hath not where to lay his head.

Mathew 8:20
1) Let us always have room in our heart and our home for the Savior.
2) I am hoping that this quote will not also be true for David and Teresa this Thanksgiving.   Because, they don't get to sleep in the sea room after all! 
Saturday we actually started the bedroom move!  We are so excited.  Even Joseph (who is giving up his own solo room) seems enthusiastic.  So far we have moved in the first bunk bed and miscellaneous personal possessions.   Andrew and Benjamin have started sleeping there, although, when we get the other bunk bed in, Ben will be in the 2nd top bunk and Joseph will be sleeping where Benjamin is sleeping now. (got that?)  There is a lot of work to do.  The biggest immediate concern is making sure we have a decent clear space somewhere for the blow-up bed for David and Teresa.  I think that we are postponing (again) our trip to Apple Hill tomorrow to work on it. 
A couple of problems yet.  We haven't yet been able to replace the support poles for the closet system.  Or figured out the window treatment.  We may have to just settle for something temporary, but more permanent than the pressure rod and sheet. For now, the pressure rod and sheet.
Benjamin was none to pleased at having to share the room with Joseph's cat, Vellox.  Until Joseph explained to him that as the two cats hate each other , Attila will not be allowed in their room.  No more jumping up on Benjamin in the middle of the night. (Of course, that means more of her attentions for me unless I start closing my door.)  Andrew didn't mind Attila, but she cannot get up to his top bunk anymore anyway as 1) the bed is slightly raised on small blocks of wood, and 2) not next to any shelves for her to use as steps.
Saturday, we also did some dry pack canning at the Storehouse - somewhat randomly.  If someone else wanted a certain product, we did leftovers.  I need to inventory and make a plan before the next canning day in January. Now. where to put the stuff??!!
Andrew and Benjamin also spent all afternoon helping someone move while I did some bookkeeping. 
Break is over.  More, no doubt exciting, news later.  sometime.


  1. I can't wait to see the room when we're down there! :)

  2. Sounds like things are moving along quite well. You have put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into that room, and deserve to reap the rewards. I agree with whoever does not want the cat. LOL.
