Let's start with yesterday. Olin & I went to the Mundalls' so Karla & I could work on "some" corn & can some tomatoes. Between Karla & I, we had purchased 8 boxes of Olathe sweet corn from Grand Junction on Friday. We had gone up there on Thursday via Moab & Castle Valley to attend the 2nd Annual Colorado Entrepreneurship Marketplace, or at least the first part of it.
Karla brought up 2 more boxes from her basement to make a total of 10 boxes. We each shucked 3 boxes, leaving 4 untouched. Then we blanched the corn & put it in ice water before cutting it off the cob & putting it in ziplocks to freeze. We did her 3 boxes & 1 1/2 boxes of my 3. She fed us chili rellenos for supper. The boys (Les, Olin & Mark) & Mattie did some fishing after a game of Settlers of Catan, a game of Scotland Yard & a game of good ole Skip Bo.
I was supposed to do some other things yesterday but only got to 3 of them. One was getting rid of several bags of trash from the garage. Another was purchasing a chest freezer for the garage (which we did at Sears, but the freezer doesn't arrive until the 27th!). That was a disappointment because I paid twice what I wanted to for it. The last thing was figuring up how much Gramps would save if he refinanced his mortgage from 6% interest to 4.75%. Go Gramps! You're going to save over $20,000 in interest!
This morning I'm in chapter 28 of Patriarchs & Prophets - Idolatry at Sinai. Quite the page turner. I highly recommend this book for anyone who has read the Old Testament & tried to reconcile that God with the God of the New Testament. I assure you they are one & the same. Rev 1:8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.
Now off to live another day, so I have something to write about!

Heather, I've switched to alilia.net now! I think my old blog link forwards to it :)Delete
I'm still trying to reconcile that OT and NT God. Going back and reading through the OT, putting the stories into context, has helped a lot. But there are still a few stories that I don't understand why God made the decisions He did. It doesn't always seem fair or loving.ReplyDelete
