Hoosier Musings on the Road to Emmaus

Saturday, November 12, 2005


Today is a domestic day at Chez Hoosier.

The boy had a culinary request this morning, so that's where we started. Flour and baking powder and eggs, oil and honey and milk, and soon we had a pancake breakfast for four. Some were plain, and some were blueberry (depending on consumer preference); and though I am not the batter artist Rev. Ref. is (I default to the basic traditional round shape) all were well received. "You make the best pancakes, Mom!"

(Sorry, Ref-- you win the talent competition, hands down; but I'm retaining the title.)

What about the rest of the day? Lots to do, for all of us:
  • Another load of leaves raked up and hauled to the back for later burning.
  • Gutters cleaned
  • Bathroom: general cleaning walls scrubbed, seams mudded and sanded, and primed.
  • Master bedroom cracks patched and painted, hideous border print stripped off, scraped down, wiped up and replaced with something attractive
  • Children's bedrooms clean (there really are floors in there!)
  • Sermon polishing for tomorrow

That list was just way too ambitious. I'm impressed with what you got done out of it.

Well, I certainly can't claim all the credit; it was a family list, this time, and a family effort.

And though I'd like to have gotten some more done, what we accomplished felt pretty good.

I always wanted to be able to burn our leaves. They don't let you do that where I grew up.
