long time no blog

It had been a very busy week last week. I had no time to blog check my emails etc. I finally got to clean my floors yesterday. We had a wedding this weekend, so I was busy with that & the daily mandate things.

Sunday after church we went to this place called the Most Kost. It's a 1 day event. What it is is that in the fall they pick the best apples & let them ferment & then they make apple cider..with alcohol. They also have non alcoholic which is what I had. It tates like apple juice but better. It was a 1/2hr drive into the country side. In a big farm house. That is where this takes place. The sell 1 type of meal. Grilled sausages, sour kraut & 1 big slice of bread. The sausages are on the bottom, sour kraut on top of the sausages & the bread on top of the sour Kraut & the tiniest little fork that looks like the size of baskin robins spoon ice cream testers. Non the less it was good. The day was beautiful & warm. The also had different types of cakes & it was dirt cheap. We didn't pay for it. We went with a family whose family works in there & another couple.

They have contest on which farmer makes the best apple cider & then they give them some award. So that was cool. Then we went for a walk. That was very nice.

Yesterday was a reall bad day for me. As you can call it a real "pisser" let's just leave it at that. No details, just a real pisser, it still feels like it. I sometimes wish I could be back in America with what I know & with my friends & that's that. I hate me right now! I don'r even like to use that word but that's just the way I feel. I ahte the way I feel right now. bdah!!!

Today it's a rainy day. I hope it doesn't continue becuse I have some major walking to catch up too. We have watched the 4th season of 24. in 1wk. Whoah! that's alot of tv. But I don't feel that bad b/c I don't watch any TV. Haven't for a coulple of weeks. I should so I can learn & hear the language more. Oh well such is life. Well let's see what the rest of the day holds for me. ;)
I didn't take pictures of the Farm house only of the kids. So here u have it.

Your country trip sounds wonderfully relaxing and a beautiful day. The kids are just precious.
I'm so sorry you've been feeling down. I have somewhat of an inkling of how you feel when I was in Singapore for over 2 weeks. We all have those "hate me" moments. Remind yourself that you are the apple of the Father's eye and the season of life you're currently in is important to the Kingdom of God. You're raising 2 wonderful children and supporting the call your husband has on his life. You're important Brenda! Great are God's plans for you too. In whatever state (or country) you're in, you can be content. Dig your heels in and you WILL overcome . . . and if that doesn't work, chocolate always does (hee hee).
Love you girl. You're well loved and thought of often.

Those are nice pictures and it sounds like a fun time you had in the country!

Oh Brenda, I have had a few of those "pissers" lately too. My heart breaks for you! In fact, I totally lost it with the kids today and I am having a "hate me" kinda day too. The kicker of that is that I have to minister tonight at the Ladies meeting! UGH...gotta love it! That's when you just 'press in' and really depend on Him for you strength to do what you have to do...because I certainly can't do it without Him and thank God for His forgiveness too and that He washes us clean!!!

I will be praying for you! I love you!

Cider, sausage and sour kraut? Fabulous!

I love the bows in your daughter's hair, reminds me of when my girls were young.

Your country trip does sound very nice. Glad that you had a nice time.

So sorry to hear of the bad day. We all have been there for sure. Hopefully since then it is getting better and better.

I would think it would be hard to turn on the TV and learn the language, kinda. I think it would make me more frustrated in fact. But yes, it would be still good to hear the language. Just remember God equips those he sends! Love you!

Your talk of Sour Kraut got me obsessed. Friday lunchtime I had to go and have a Reuben for lunch!

It WAS good, though...
