Sunday ~ October 19, 2008
Another beautiful day in days and calling days. No school last Thursday or Friday so I tried to rearrange/organize/clean and get ready for a puppy. Well, not a puppy, but a 60 pound 2 year old...our daughter' take care of and love until she has a place that allows pets. Schmitty has been told...she yowled and stalked off, sharpening her claws and practicing hissing. Life will not be the same after tomorrow!
Pastors...another 'P' word. We had a call meeting to call a candidate either from the winter graduating class or from the spring one in May. God already has had one picked out for us from the beginning of time so now we just trust in Him to provide. So...tomorrow the call documents have to be prepared (read: delete a few specific things and print:-)) and mailed and mailings to all the members stating what was voted on today. Besides that I have many phone calls to make concerning our other daughter's SS benefits, a meeting to go to and physical therapy in the afternoon. Did I mention organization? Thinking I've got to figure out how to do that!

Thursday ~ October 9, 2008
...I do not know! Indian Summer went into layering weather this week...cold, breezy, but no snow yet. The tamaracks are just turning and the majority of the trees have decided to do the same. 21 degrees this morning when I headed out.
A week from Sunday we will have pastor appreciation AND another voter's meeting to determine whether we'll call a candidate this time or a pastor from the field again. The letters have been mailed to the members concerning this and will be posted in the bulletin. Seems like all of a sudden EVERYTHING has to be done, then there's a lull...after this weekend there will be a lull in hauling/stacking wood. Doctor appointments/work/secretarial duties/household work...THAT'S WHERE THE TIME GOES!
It was wonderful to have Monday off this week...and two days the end of next get organized (paper-wise and cleaning). Jack will head down to our son's to meet our daughter on the 18th...transferring her things to our trailer...and her puppy dog...who will live with us for a while until she gets a place again where she can have a pet. SO...our cat and her that should be interesting! Schmitty chases BIG dogs out of the yard, growling, with her tail and back up, so...POOR RAINIER! We did put 4 - 16 foot cattle panals up for a dog run...and Schmitty was quite upset with that. AND...the deck is'll put a crimp in her tail, too, because that's the way to the dog run!
Update on our oldest daughter's SS application: The judge has declared her disabled, so will receive SS, apply for Medicaid and now, maybe, she can get the medical/emotional help she needs. Our former doctor was present at the hearing and the lawyer credits the favorable ruling (1st hearing) with her caring enough to give her testimony in person. She is an awesome Christian doctor and friend!
