Seven Things Week 43

No picture this week.
I cleaned out a drawer and found new homes for my nursing bras. For some reason this week is difficult for me. Maybe it's the thought of not ever nursing a sweet, warm, cuddly newborn. Sadly, I am done having children.
Four of the bras were Bravado nursing bras and I found two women that can use them.

* Eight miscellaneous other nursing bras.

Memorial day

This memorial day marks the third year that I don't have my dear Aunt with me. This is the aunt mentioned in earlier posts.
I miss her very very much.
My cousin, my aunts daughter, asked an interesting question:
Why do we remember the date of our loved ones death?? Why is it important for us to remember this??

Memorial day is also a day to remember our soldiers that have served and serve today.
It is also a day to remember the soldiers for Christ--
*Mother Theresa--she loved everyone, she loved the unlovable. She touched the untouchables, that no one else would touch. She gave her life everyday to spread the love of Christ to others.
*David Livingstone- He was an explorer, the first European to see Victoria Falls in Africa. He was also a minister and opened Africa up to evangelism and Christ.
*Martin Luther King Jr.--not only was he a civil rights leader, but he too was a minister and evangelist spreading the love of Jesus. He was killed to prevent him from spreading the gospel.
*Thomas Aquinas--an Italian priest
*William Wilberforce--he lead a campaign in England to abolish the slave trade there
*James Hudson Taylor--a missionary to china
*C.S Lewis
*John Jay--one of our founding fathers
To name just a few.
Remember our soldiers from all wars, that fought for us to have the freedoms we have today.
And remember our loved ones that are gone.

These all are going to my daughter again. I had forgotten that tupperware is guarenteed for life. My old roommate from many many years ago was a Tupperware rep and I got a ton of it then. I still have a ton of it so DD is on the receiving end of my tupperware giveaway!!

Compost dirt!!!!

We used the first dirt from the compost pile. We have 2 barrels that dh puts plants in every spring and he used some of it for replanting grass in the yard.
I need to get busy again with the compost pile and turn it now. DH added some wood shavings to the pile.
It smelled so DIRT like!!
YAY for me.
The tomato and herb garden are next to be planted. Unfortunately I will need to buy the plants since we didn't start any from seed.

Seven Things Week 40

Wow, only 12 weeks and I will have been doing th eseven things project for a YEAR!! It's been a good project for me to do. Some of the "stuff" is hard to let go but I am going to continue to do this even after the year is up. It's good to periodically go through the closets and drawers and thin things out!

The seven things for this week come from the kitchen again.
It's seven cook books that we have had for 13 years. We haven't used these books in that long and with the new kitchen, it's time for them to go.
