Our Saturdays are usually filled with projects that take more time than we have on a weekday. We used to have those types of projects EVERY Saturday but it has gotten much less often. We usually do spend it going to the grocery store and maybe going to a mission meeting. We rarely have a Saturday that isn't filled with something to keep us from resting.
This Saturday afternoon John spent his time putting up a new ceiling fan over our kitchen table. I have the best husband ever! Even though it was the last thing he wanted to do, he did it. "Love ya, Babe!"
There were a few reasons we did that. One was because the light hung down so low that he was always hitting his head on it if the table got moved over. That was the least of the reasons for changing it. He had been doing that for the last 12 years. The light that was up there used a bunch of tiny lights that were not always easy to replace and just not cost effective. And the dinning room is a large room that opens into the den and the living room. The air in those three rooms never seem to cool off. With this new fan it should help the rooms stay cooler in the hotter months.
One of our biggest challenges right now is saving money and paying down debt. We have done a great deal towards that in the last couple of years. But our war against debt and high cost of living isn't over yet. We still have a bit to go and we need to learn to live on even less than we already do. I will be posting about ways we are working on that and making sure I put the links and ideas on the page I have made for that. I hope you will help me with some ideas and links to add.
I am so excited about this new blog. It is my hope that I will be able to make it fun and a blog you will want to visit often.
Until next time...Blessings to you!
