A busy day, especially considering it is Labor Day, a day that is meant to wind down and maybe even get a little rest. We did get some winding down in, and relatively early on, in the day, I took the girls out kite flying, again. They both seem to enjoy it, and because we have a prevailing breeze coming through, it is kind of easy to do. The down side is that by the time we were out and flying it was getting to be a little later in the morning, and the sun was definitely up. It got to be well above 90 today, and just standing there in the sun light wore me down just a little. We had fun, though, so I think it was well worth the effort (We also had plenty of sun block on).

After getting the girls down for their naps, Linda and I laid down to get a little rest as well. We were back up after only about an hour of laying down and started putting things away, and emptying boxes once again. I managed to get through five boxes and Linda did several, though I have to admit, I don't know how many. We have quite a pile of boxes on our back patio, and I've begun breaking them down, so they can be bundled together. Initially, we were wondering what we were going to be doing with all the boxes, and then we got a call from a friend, Pauline Frank, who happens to be getting ready for a move, also. She and Rob, her husband, are moving soon and they need some boxes for their own packing. This is very fortunate, and I hope it helps them. On top of that, it was simply good to hear from them.

Linda gave the girls a bath, right after dinner, and then I read them Paddington Bear, and they went to bed. Linda will take them to school tomorrow morning, and if all goes well, they will be riding the bus home. Linda still has to check on one piece of documentation, in the morning, and if it is all done, then they get to ride the bus home. They are both looking forward to it, and actually pretty excited. The way the bus route goes they will be dropped off pretty close to our driveway.

One of the things we need to get worked on here, is the network connectivity. Because we are kind of remote the signal strength isn't as strong as I would like it to be. The guys from eHome (the network company that set up much of the "smart" in this smart home) are coming out tomorrow to go over a few things, and network band-width is one of the items I will be pushing on. When Jason wants to stream a video, it effectively shuts down most of the other traffic. That means Linda and I have to wait to get email or most anything else we're doing, done.

Speaking of Jason, he is doing well and the wounds are continuing to heal up better. He is still limiting his time in the chair, and I am staying on top of the dressing changes, like they want me to. It should be just a matter of another week that he'll be back to being able to get around more. I know a number of folks out there have been wondering about it, and we appreciate the extra prayers that are coming in. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.


  1. Hope you can figure out the internet problem! That's huge!
    No matter what you have to face, even the hardest trials, the Lord is your strength! Praying!
    Habakkuk 3:17-19 Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The LORD God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds' feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places.

  2. Know that you're always in my prayers!
    Psalms 86:1-4 Bow down thine ear, O LORD, hear me: for I am poor and needy. Preserve my soul; for I am holy: O thou my God, save thy servant that trusteth in thee. Be merciful unto me, O Lord: for I cry unto thee daily. Rejoice the soul of thy servant: for unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.
