It has come to my attention that I have neglected thrilling you with our adventures here for quite some time. But I will make up for it with my latest adventure… the meat shop.

Now those of you who know me know that in the States I was a coupon fanatic. Coupons were a hobby. A joy. A welcomed adventure all their own. I loved the excitement of getting $200 worth of groceries and only spending $30! I matched sales with coupons and collected sales fliers like some people collect stamps. Um, only I threw my fliers away when I finished! HA!

When we moved here, the thrill was ripped away cruelly by the sad truth that coupons don’t exist here, sales are rare, and simply because I have white skin I can be charged two or even three times as much as other people.

This week, the Baptist Missionary Women blog is hosting MK Spirit Week, and today is Crazy Mustache Monday!

And of all days to struggle getting my pics uploaded, today is one of them. So here is a link to our pics. Hope you have a great MK Spirit Week!

 

Today was a normal day. We got up, got ready to go to the church, ate breakfast, and headed out the door. As Jason was locking the final lock on the door (we have several on each door for security,) he had a strange thought.

"Lord, we have done so many things to keep this house secure. We have done all we can do, but ultimately You are the only one that can keep us safe. This house can still be broken in to, and if You choose that... this stuff is Yours anyway. Do what You want with it."

And we left, locking the gate behind us.

This is Chief. We often joke that he is the "Chief of police."  He takes his role of security dog very seriously. When we come home, he always has to sniff every bag for contraband. He never takes anything, and I am not exactly sure what he is sniffing for, but he gets very focused as he inspects purses, backpacks, grocery bags, etc. We have found it saves a lot of time and heartache just to go ahead and let him sniff for a few seconds.

I suppose we haven't posted enough adventures lately. Today was sprinkled with mini adventures... some good and some not so pleasant.

Jason had a great trip, and took WONDERFUL photos! Usually he forgets to take pictures, so I am very excited to share these with you.

Before he left on his trip, Gabriel sent Fire with Jason. Fire is one of Gabe's favorite stuffed animals. Daddy and Fire had a blast together.
