The Painting: This is the finish of The First Race of Spring.... brilliant color and lots of action.

The Thought:  A hard Days thoughts are here because that is what my dear husband put in yesterday and he was not planning on doing at all what he did.  Early yesterday the Dish TV folks shows up and he hit it right on target for where he moved the pole. The Installer helped clip a few more branches on the trees and presto, an hour later we had TV... first time in over a month.

Then Lowe's arrived with the new over the stove microwave and the new dishwasher.  From eleven that morning until nine last night... he worked his fingers numb installing both of these things. He also had to rip out the old things and rebuild part of the cabinets.  There is something special in a hard day of work... the satisfaction that you completed something.  We did treat him to a barbecue dinner...and wait till you hear that story...maybe tomorrow!

Every time I use these appliances,  I will remember yesterday and his effort to get them all installed so quickly.  He is working on overtime to get this house pulled together.  Hard  to do when you squish up a large house into a small house!

This Saturday... normally a day most of you do all the other stuff you didn't do all week...remember to take a break and pace yourself. 

I give thanks for a hardworking husband and all he gives to make this house our home.

Before I forget... here are a few shots of us on the paddle boat in the pond out back, I will try and make a slide show later today for tomorrow:


Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ.”- Ephesians 4:15
