Project 365: Week 40

Sunday, September 26. 2010

We finally had our first community group meeting since the summer break. We all enjoyed ourselves, but the kids especially enjoyed the worship time. Not the greatest picture, considering all the kids have their back to me, and only one of them actually belongs to ME. But I thought they were all cute singing this song.

Our West Little Rock Farmer's Market is starting to pick up some steam. (It's a newer market.)

Today we bought a huge bunch of organic basil (among many other things) to make pesto. (Any idea how much I adore pesto??) Atticus was my little helper. But I couldn't get him to LOOK at me!

See what I mean?

 This is Noah's chore, but this morning Gabriel quietly walked over to the dishwasher, opened it, and started putting things away. He cleared the entire bottom rack, silverware and all, without being asked.

Saylor wanted to read the nap time story to "the babies." She tells pretty good tales.

No picture today. I was swamped--what with finishing up preparations to give my testimony tonight at Women's Fellowship and making casseroles for the same. (Whew! This day took a lot out of me.)

Took pictures of Saylor today for her upcoming birthday.

And then we went out for supper. We sat on the patio, and while we waited for the food, Saylor directed a game of "Duck, Duck, Goose."

I stayed up all. night. long. getting all the STUFF marked for our garage sale today. And guess how much we made?  
That's it. 
It was the most pathetic sale we've ever had. 
Missing my sleep for $37.50. Ummmm...NOT worth it.  :(

There was one bright spot in the day when these two crawled into my kayak (which nobody bought, by the way). Something about them both with their hoods on, sitting in a boat made us all laugh.

Kayak for Sale (Boys Not Included)

Well, maybe it doesn't show in my pictures, but this was one crazy, wacky, unbelievably-busy October week. Now I have several more crazy, wacky, unbelievably-busy October weeks to go! In all my recent busyness, I've really missed reading about all you Project 365 gals at Sara's. Maybe I'll have some free time today.


  1. Question, what kinda of camera do you have?
    I miss community groups so bad! Tell your kiddos i said hi :)
    Can't wait to see your family again

  2. that was a busy week!!!

    I have given up on garage sales...not worth the work. I just load it all up at take it to the thrift shop!!

    I am hoping to hit the farmers market tomorrow!!!

  3. It's that time of year for busyness I think and it only escalates until Christmas! I enjoyed peeking at your week. We love farmers market here but do not go nearly often enough, and when I do I end up spending sooo much money because I just want "a little" of everything. Okay so admittedly it's not really that much, but it's always more than I plan to spend :(

    If you would have had your boys promote the kayak maybe it would have sold!

  4. You are so right about a disappointing yard sale! That was a major bummer!

    Basil was one of the things that did very well in my garden this year. It is still producing. Not for long though now that the weather is getting cooler!


  5. It looks like you got some good pics of your busy week! Love that song!
    Homemade pesto is the best! Basil is now a neccesity in the garden.
    And what a great little "momma" you have!
    The boys wanted to do a garage sale this year and we had about as much success as you did - definitely NOT worth the time and effort!

  6. Lovely photos, sweet family memories. Those kids will grow up all too fast!
    farmer's market--I wish!
    Guess I'm not the only one who hasn't made it around the blog circuit :(

  7. The kayak picture is too cute! I guess Gabriel is into order maybe? Too cute that he did that chore for his brother. Hope your testimony time went well…

  8. Bummer about the garage sale. I hope that you got a few more bucks the next day...if you had another sale day.
    Love our farmers market. So fun.

  9. garage sales... i feel your pain... any extra income is nice, but it's so much work! we've been carting everything down to our local thrift store, too. ;)

    lil' noah... such a sweet helper!! :)

  10. sounds like a fun and busy week. Love those pics of Atticus and the basil...too cute and that picture of Saylor with the bow in her hair is stunning. Hope your weeks calm down some!

  11. Never had very good success with garage sales. I found it easier to box it up and give it away to friends or take it to Goodwill for a tax write-off. But I do enjoy GOING to garage sales :) Miss those!

    Looks like you have a photo-shy kiddo :) It's cute how he's hiding behind the herbs. Some (usually boys) will find just about anything and everything to hide behind when a camera comes out. Not sure which is worse, one who hates having their picture taken or one who loves it but refuses to act normal in front of the camera :)

    You took some great shots of the kiddos together. Really love the one of Big Sis reading to the younger ones. Precious!

    Hope October isn't TOO crazy!


Whatcha' think?
