My Past Week - Chinese food, Chickadees, and Friends...

This week I spent time running errands,
cleaning, and studying my foreign languages.
Thursday our friends came over and Stephani
and I babysat the children as the moms went out

to the commisary for groceries..
Later, we made supper... lasagna for everyone else,
and I made a chinese dish for Stephani and I...

It was so delicious!
Scallops, onions, green beans, etc...

I also plan to make Kung Po chicken sometime soon.

Since the next day was Friday,
I was glad to return home with them for
the night to help clean up their house some.
Before going to sleep, Stephani and I
stayed up in bed doing character studies.
It was such a wonderful time we had together!

Yesterday, Stephani and I did more Bible studying
as well as worked on our languages.
Later, we made pizza, our usual Friday evening routine.
Last week we beat our record of
making 7 pizzas in a short amount of time...
we finished in 20 MINUTES!! :-)

The children were excited all day by
watching as baby chickadees were learning to fly.
They got very close to them, I heard...

This morning, we heard chirpping in the garage.
By the sound of it, it seemed to be
coming from my dad's motorcycle!
I searched the entire engine with a flashlight
and, sure enough, I found a baby chickadee
stuck in the bottom of his engine!!!
It was so sad to think he was stuck there
during the whole night!
He was in an almost unreachable spot,
but I struggled and finally got him out...

I took him outside to see if he was injured,
but he must not have been since he flew off so fast.
He started singing and chirping like crazy
on one of our low branches... he seemed happy to be free!

Well, I hope to go listen to Dr.Paul Chappel
and finish a dress today. (I'll share it soon!)
It's the first dress I made with elastic instead of a tie :)
I hope you all have a great weekend!

"Watch therefore: for ye know not
what hour your Lord doth come."
Matthew 24:42

Wow, sounds fun. Especially your chinese dish. I can't wait to see your dress!

You said your mom went to the commisary. Does that mean you live on base? My day was in the United States Air Force for 12 years before he left because of his back issues. When we left I was very young, but I still remember a little bit of the base housing.

Hi Alexandra,
That Chinese dish looks delicious! We don't eat Chinese food very much, but I think I might have to make some soon. :)

That baby chickadee is so cute! I'm glad you got him out of your dad's motorcylce engine and let him go. He looks so happy to be free! :)

Have a wonderful weekend!
