Feb. 24th

What a lovely day I had.  I woke up at 3:30 this morning, but was able to get back to sleep till 4:55 when I had to get up to take the boy to the church for the youth group’s annual ski trip.  He had to be there at 5:15.   Needless to say, I am sleepy now.

The husband and I had a lovely day doing nothing.  Well, he put in a new faucet in the upstairs bathroom.  It finally decided that it just didn’t want to shut off.  It was one of those round ball jobbies.  I much prefer the 2 sided ones.  Cold on one side and hot on the other.  That is what is in now.  We then watched some more of the WWII documentary.  I learned some interesting things that my history teacher never told me about the war.

This evening our 4×4 group met.  A 4×4 group is something that our church does to promote fellowship.  4 different families meet 4 months in a row.  We hosted last month.  Tonight we went to an Amish home.  They fed us a huge spread.   The food was standard Amish fare, but I was disappointed.  I have had much better Amish cooking.  I make better food than this……….except the dressing.  It was superb!  We have a very interesting mix of couples this time.  There are 3 of us with very strong personalities.  The 2 of us ladies are really working on our tongues, being tactful, etc.  The man…….he could care less.   He even tried to start an arguement with the husband.  If any of you know the husband, then you know that it is a difficult thing.  I finally had to nudge him under the table so he would just let it go.  It wasn’t worth it.

I now am going to go to bed, and sleep in!

  1. We got together w/our SS class tonite, too. We have one of THOSE men as well. It takes a lot of effort not to listen to him, but that is the only way I can handle him.
    I’m glad you and your hubby had a day together! 🙂

  2. So your 4×4 meets, they are with others churchs or is your church non-denominational? Showing my true ignorance here…I thought the Amish had their own churches? Or is it more a lifestyle than a religious persuasion? All my knowledge of Amish (which is little at best) comes from movies and books. So I have no clue. I’ve always been fascinated by it though. I apologise if I am being too nosy.

  3. 4×4 up here is four couples going square dancing.
    That’s next weekend- yahoo!

    Bekki it depends on the order of Amish as to who they associate with. You probably pass them everyday and don’t even know it. Not all Amish are dressed in plain.

  4. I enjoyed the time our church did something similar. It seems like they did 3 couples (maybe 5) and then each hostess could invite anyone of their choosing to fill in the last family, which allowed new families to join in, or families who didn’t want to commit to the whole deal. We ate in each other’s homes. My husband never liked the social things, so i couldn’t sign up, but we were invited as special guests. I enjoyed it very much.

  5. Ah, thank you. I don’t think we have Amish communties in Australia. (I never thought to look) So, they usually have pretty good food then? I’ll have to look into this. I need some new sensible recipes to fatten up my pile of recipes that Dh will actually eat.
