Next, the beast went with me to the kid's Christmas parties at school on Friday. I had NO idea if Holden and I would be anywhere in the picture, or if it would just be a picture of my nostrils...so this was a pleasant surprise since the camera was only at my arm's length. The lens got in the way of the flash...that's the shadow...we'll have to work on that one.
Okay, its a little orange, but I LOVE it, its exactly what I want to learn to do. So, here is my attempt next:
Close, but not quite. So, Tim strikes again:
WARNING: Rabbit trail ahead! So, today is chore day at the Prachar house. And Tim, after the generous gift AND photography lesson decides he wants to wash the windows. I was thinking the sliders (they are always covered with small handprints...wonder whose those could be????), so Paul got him what he needed and he proceeded to go all the way around the outside of the house cleaning ALL the windows!! He even scraped paint from one window and an old sticker from the outside of Alayna's bedroom window (that I hadn't even noticed until it was gone!) He even cleaned the inside of the windows as he went since they crank out:
Okay, I promise I am wrapping up this very long post (made possible by Paul and Tim who took the kids to Agape to meet the King Air coming back from Arkansas after getting a new paint job and stayed away for along time). So, are you wondering why there is a picture of a washer and dryer with this post?? Isn't it a pretty picture though?? The lighting was perfect...ahem...anyway. These are the latest of the Lord's provision. As if the camera was too distant of a memory and we needed to be reminded that He will provide for our EVERY need, this washer/dryer set were loaned to us for an undetermined period...sort of like the treadmill that now lives in our guest room. Our friends Dan and Kate are going to the Dominican Republic in just over a very SHORT month and they are not going to be able to take them with them to the island,so they asked us to appliance-sit with permission to use them! This is amazing because our own washer we brought from Iowa is being stored in our garage because the house came with a set (you can see it just to the left of the other set). We let someone from church take our dryer because theirs died and they couldn't afford one. For the past couple months it is taking longer and longer to get anything dry in the dryer we were using. The last load of clothes that included some towels took 100 minutes to get dry. Not very energy efficient and I was just wondering what we were going to do about that...voila, here's a new set! Why do we ever worry? Why do we ever feel stressed??? Because our faith is SO small...ugggh, will it EVER grow up????
