Staying busy...

Well, there is usually one of two reasons why I don't update my blog for so long...either the fact that I just haven't had nothing to post about...or I'm so busy I don't have time to post. :) Last week there just wasn't much exciting going on, and this week has been a rather busy one. The big news is, (although I'm sure most of you have already read about it on my Mom's blog) is that my brothers were finally able to purchase them a really nice Ford F350 truck. Praise the Lord for His provision!! Actually it was kind of neat, Dad, Anna, and I found it...and from the first time I saw it I thought it just had to be THE truck, although I had no idea how we could purchase it because it was a bit out of our price range, and the guys were committed to paying cash. But after going by there and working out a trade in deal with our old truck they brought it home!! So neat! Can't wait to take it to a goat show.... :)

Wednesday Anna and I had a big day....we went clothes shopping with the Burnett ladies!! It was so much fun, and we ended up finding lots of stuff....which was nice, because finding modest clothing these days is not an easy task! Wow did we ever have a time together! After we were done shopping we tagged along with them to the Wednesday night service at church and then spent the night with them. We ended up staying up like SO super late talking....3:30 to be exact! But we had some really good conversations and it was worth it, even though I was like REALLY tired the next day of course. :D

And then Thursday evening we butchered the remaining 25 chickens we had...started at about 8:30 and were finished up at around 10:30. Not quite as fun pulling guts out in the dark....hard to see! Tomorrow we are in for a big day headed some dear friends the Fleshman's to help them out with butchering 45 chickens!

We are eagerly anticipating my friend Danielle coming for a visit on the 26th, Lord willing...can't wait to see you girl!! :)

Oh, Besh, I had so much fun with you on Wednesday!! I agree, the late night (early morning) talk was so worth it!
I can hardly wait to take a ride with you to Stillwater in that truck! ;)

Love you my dear friend!!

Hannah (hon-hon) :P

Congratulations on the new truck - and the new clothes. :D I know how hard it is to find modest clothes, I'm glad you were able to find some. Aren't the thrift stores the best? I just about die anytime I look at the prices in a 'real' store. I'm used to paying $7 for a nice outfit - not $20 for a shirt - on sale! LOL I guess I am a little cheap when it comes to clothes!
I'm glad you were able to have such a good time with your friends. Good friends are a true gift from God.
