Mixed Emotions

This weekend was a terrible and wondrous weekend. Terrible for the ones left behind but, wondrous for one. She was a young women, a mere 15 years of age.

We are saddened by her leaving us but, her memory will be with us forever. I found myself thinking about her on my way to work this morning. Thinking about her life if she had remained here. I take comfort in thinking that it is like a book with a perfect ending that came several chapters too soon and the author is just padding it for bulk. It really takes away from the significance of the preceding chapters.

I think we should see this life we live as a testing ground. We are really not suppose to be here indefinitely. We are home, then allow to go out into this world. When we complete what we need to do we are called home once more. To do what you might say? To do what we have to do. Some peoples missions are complex and some are very simple but, we all have a mission to do in life. Only He knows your mission and when it has been completed.

I am upset that such a young women was called home so early in life but, I also understand that she had completed her mission. Not only was her mission very complex but, she was really good at what she was put here to do. She finished early and she was called home. Some people it takes 80 years to complete what she did in so few. Some will live to 100 and not even come close to touching as many people.

I am not sure if I communicated my thoughts correctly but, I am trying to wrap my brain around this whole process. It is the only way I can make sense of this.

My thoughts and prayers are with the Fiscus family. God bless and be with you all.

We have basically moved outta the house and into the pool. It has been so hot today. The van showed 99 degrees but I think its a bit high but still felt really hot. I didnt get to swim but Yuri informed me that the pool was 91 degrees. We swam in it this weekend and it was 88 and that was just about perfect for cooling off.

The water is crystal clear and the water has just a hint of debree in it. It will steadily get worse because I dont have a vacuum to get the stuff off the bottom. The only hope is to get the kids in there to stir it up and hope the debree gets near the skimmer or the suction to the filter.

Been trying to make sure the chlorine level stays up on the pool because in this weather and the sun and temp will cause water with no clorine turn to pea soup in a few hours. Wish me luck.

Just Bloggin

Not too much has been happening around here. Mom and Dad came to visit last week and since then not to much to report.

We set the pool up this last weekend and it is warming up nicely. It was about 70 degrees when we first filled it and now it is about 84 degrees. The kids seem to be able to bare it but I like it just a bit warmer.

Yin has started piano lessons and is now playing twinkle twinkle little star with her music book and stickers on the keys.

Yuri sucessfully went to church camp for a weekend and was there all weekend with out having to call home or be upset. He said he had a really good time and we are happy that he did.

The chickens are doing well in there new diggs. The chicks are growning and I havent lost any for about 2 weeks now so that is a good thing.

The neighbors came down last weekend and we sat in the back yard burning a stump out of the ground and cooking smores over the fire. We sat on the tailgate of the truck and chatted until about midnight. It was a good time.

Me nieces and nephews came over today and went swimming in the pool. They all looked like they were having a good time.

The chicken tractor will find a new home on Friday. A friend from my work is buying it and I will also give him a few of my hens to get him started.

Moe even after several attempts by Brando and I will not yodel.

However Yin can make him yodel like no ones business.

Watched the first season of TruBlood on DVD and it is pretty good.

Just got finished watching Underworld Rise of the Lycans and it was good and kept to the story line as told in the first movie.

I am dreading going to work tomorrow and want to stay home.

Moe is watching me type this. He is a nice cat and the only thing I wish I could figure out how to help him with is why he digs in his water bowl. I have changed to a 9X 13 cassarole dish because I read that if thier whiskers touch the side of the bowl due to being too deep or too small it makes they want to dig but he still digs from time to time.

Well thats about it for now. Have a nice rest of the week and a nice weekend.
