Monday Randomness

In no apparent order today was a day full of randomness.

  • mowed the lawn
  • chiropractor
  • Scotts Step 4 with weed preventer
  • painted back trim section on house
  • picked the last of our summer squash
  • while I had the paint out I painted the bathroom vent, the electrical box, phone & cable box – now they all match the color of the house and blend.  Kim thinks I let my OCD show… I call it detail oriented.
  • chainsaw and a ladder – opened up more view to the back 40
  • leaf blower!
  •  trampoline time with Megan & Makenna (I think I bounced Makenna about 6 feet tonight)
  • story time with Makenna (some book about a butterfly – I love the Concord Library)
  • Dunkin’ Donuts with Kim – COFFEE!
  • picked up my car at the garage and had a great conversation with my mechanic about church growth and pew removal (seats not smells)
  • bath time with the kids – now in bed
  • looking forward to Heroes
  • campfire (well that’s what the permit calls it) more like bonfire that settles down…
  • journaling
  • spent some time praying about an outreach event for next August

Overall a great day.  I feel like I got a lot done and it’s always refreshing being at home with the kids.

Home Makeover Update


The foundation has been poured and the walls are starting to go up!  After about a 6 hour delay due to extra needed excavation (the back yard had been a dump at one point and as the were getting ready to place footings they ran into an old refrigerator!)


Saturday morning they had a sea of people running down the road all gung-ho to get to work.  It’s amazing to see the outpouring of support for Voisine family.  The best of NH is coming out this week thanks in part to ABC and the Extreme Makeover crew.  It’s exciting to see what we can all do when we unite for a common purpose.  I pray that this makeover serves as a catalyst for many people in NH seeing, uniting, and meeting many more needs around us.


Our big day will be Thursday as GCC will be unleashed on the surrounding neighborhood to spruce the place up and leave the entire neighborhood looking better than it did at the beginning of this project.  Can’t wait to see all the people there serving out of love!
