Back to Blogging

putting vinyl siding above the cottage addition
I have been too busy to blog this summer and now that the fall has arrived and things have settled down a bit I am plan get back into the habit.  The summer was spent with Jason's family being here in the States from France.  Before that I was busy with my doctoral thesis and am glad to have that project finished.  My book on the Song of Solomon will be the next major project.  I hope to have this project done by the end of the year.  You may expect to see pictures of that book here on this blog.  I hope to get a Kindle version of the book as well.

My mother and her sister Maxine last Friday
I am the clerk for our local baptist association.  Its annual messenger meeting will be October 6th and after taking notes of the meeting that day I will have to get the minute books printed and sent out.  I am also a clerk for our state baptist association and that messenger meeting is in November.  The work on that will not be finished until the end of December.  January is "remodel and paint the parsonage" month.  I plan to start with the master bedroom and bath repairing the cracked sheet rock and fixing the doors so they will open and shut properly.  We have lived here for almost 10 years now and it is way past time to fix the place up.  This will mean that the work on the cottage addition will be put on hold.

Tomorrow we go to baby sit Naomi while Sarah goes for a doctor's appointment.  When we finish up there we will go to Henderson to put flowers out at the graveyard and visit with my mother-in-law.  Its back to Hillsboro for Wednesday night services and then off to see the grandchildren in Hardin on Thursday and Friday.  Saturday should find us in Kilgore to see my sister Peggy and my mother for just a few minutes and then back home again for our Sunday services.  All in all it will be a busy week.  God bless you.
