This afternoon, I took a walk and photographed a bit. Amazingly enough our yard is not terribly slick (not like this past January) as much of the rain soaked into the snow that was already on the ground and after the rain, the ground was coated with a thin layer of sleet. It is quite interesting as we can walk right on top of the snow/ice and while we walk the ground makes an eerie creaking and groaning. It is so still out that this noise echoes considerably.

We are using the pool now, though we still need to put some pea gravel around it. The pool is so nice and the ducks have been greatly enjoying it!
Yesterday the snow melted a bit, but then today it is in the 20's with freezing drizzle. The forecast all through next Wednesday is freezing rain. Due to the weather Thursday, we canceled girls group which we are glad we did as the roads out where we live became quite slick. Ryan even had to take an alternate route home from work due to how bad one of the roads was. It looks like it could get worse though with all the freezing rain forecasted. Oh, the joys of winter weather!

And there you have it, the basic outline for one week.
November 29th, 2007
-Review godly speech
-Begin making rolls
Study on Countenance
-Proverbs 15:13 “A joyful heart makes a cheerful face, but when the heart is sad, the spirit is broken.”
-What is the countenance? (the expression on our face)
-Why is our countenance important? (Our facial expression is a reflection of our heart. Often times the only thing that people will see and remember of us in passing is our countenance – our face must reflect the love and light of Christ)
-What are different types of countenance? (discuss/demonstrate) How does our countenance affect other people? How does the countenance of other people affect us?
-Matthew 5:16 “Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.”
-Write in journals
Adding enough of the remaining flour to make a 'soft dough'
My hands were quite busy during the next step: kneading (thus no pictures of this). Only one or two girls had ever kneaded before so it was an interesting experience! After kneading we set the dough to rise. As we only have two hours during girls group, there is not enough time to make rolls from start to finish so this week we brought them to the first rising. And then next time, prior to girls group, Leah and I will get the dough to the same point that the girls had it. Then when the come, they can begin right where they left off. Out of all the cooking we have done, I believe that learning to make rolls has been the girls' favorite.
