Day 73: With Silver Bells

Today was a super productive day. As HH said, it was a day of good labor. But that just made me sad because I would like to have a day of a different sort of labor behind me.

Anyway, back to what was accomplished today. Among other things, we dug out our garden plot! And then HH and our somewhat overly-helpful neighbor boy framed it. It looks really good. And I'm just so excited about it! Thus, today's Joyful Moment.

Our little seedlings are growing quite rapidly, so I'm relieved to be that much closer to having a place ready for them once the nights are warm enough. We still have to get some soil/peat moss/manure to fill it in with because our soil here is actually clay. And we have to fence it to keep out the rabbits and our mischievous puppy. But I don't think those things will take too long.

I'm so grateful for HH's willingness to work so hard. My help is fairly limited and is mostly in the form of bossing him around. So, I'm glad he puts up with it, listens to me, and does the majority of the manual labor.

And I can't wait for all the Joyful Moments to come when we get to eat our own fresh veggies!!!

Wishing you all Joyful Moments of accomplishment and anticipation!

I enjoyed the adult session of conference and appreciated my oldest daughter watching the other children in the nursery for three hours so we could partisipate for the first time in years.

Today my joyful moment came when I got to play the piano in primary and hear the kids singing the song, "I Know That My Savior Loves Me." It totally brought in the Spirit and tears to my eyes.
