"We hung out at the mall, played Pokémon together, worked on cleaning our apartment and watched people drive like idiots down Center Street."
More good weeks on our ever evolving homestead! How's your 1000 marble challenge going?
"1611 KJV. Exodus 2:23-25
¶ And it came to passe in processe of time, that the king of Egypt died, and the children of Israel sighed by reason of the bondage, and they cried, and their cry came vp vnto God, by reason of the bondage.
And God heard their groning, and God remembred his Couenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Iacob.
And God looked vpon the children of Israel, and God had respect vnto them."
God is always there. He sees and hears everything. He has a plan.

I walked 18,554 steps so far today ..
Matt and I had a blast wandering around the mall . .
He saw friends and cute girls . .
I hit level 25 in Pokémon . .
We both added ourselves to the Team Valor (Awesomeness!!) gym at the mall . .
Now Matt has a special mac and cheese in the oven and we've settled in for the evening. .

"1611 KJV. Exodus 2:3-10
And when shee could not longer hide him, she tooke for him an arke of bul-rushes, and daubed it with slime, and with pitch, and put the childe therein, and shee layd it in the flags by the riuers brinke.
And his sister stood afarre off, to wit what would be done to him.
¶ And the daughter of Pharaoh came downe to wash her selfe at the riuer, and her maydens walked along by the riuer side: and when shee saw the arke among the flags, she sent her maid to fetch it.
And when she had opened it, she saw the childe: and beholde, the babe wept. And she had compassion on him, and said, This is one of the Hebrewes children.
Then said his sister to Pharaohs daughter, Shall I goe, and call to thee a nurse of the Hebrew-women, that she may nurse the childe for thee?
And Pharaohs daughter said to her, Goe: And the mayd went and called the childs mother.
And Pharaohs daughter said vnto her, Take this child away, and nurse it for me, and I will giue thee thy wages. And the woman tooke the childe, and nursed it.
And the childe grew, and shee brought him vnto Pharaohs daughter, and he became her sonne. And she called his name Moses: And she said, Because I drew him out of the water."
This sort of love . . the love where a mother selflessly does what she must to keep her child safe. . .
This strong devoted mother who gave her son away twice in order to keep him alive and safe . .
This is one amazing Mama!!

1) sleeping in tents as true comfort
2) sheets and blankets repel monsters
3) floating on clouds and watching
4) exhaustion breeds innovation
5) 55*F is healthiest sleeping temperature
6) pillows get lonely when left alone

As winter pounds down upon us and looks to be a bad one we're all going to need to add humidity to our homes/apartments. Yes, there are countless humidifiers available in stores, but why would any sane person spend unnecessary money?
A cheaper way is to fill a metal can/pan/bowl with water and sit it on your radiator or heat vent. When the heat comes on the water heats and evaporates making the room comfortable.
An added "secret bonus"~ your room will feel 5-10* F warmer without having to turn up the heat!! This trick should actually allow you to turn the heat down, at least a little bit.
