Here's a fun time lapse video of an Amish barn raising. I like the fact that you can tell when they took their break to eat!
I'm not raising any barns at the moment, but I am quite busy! We host houseguests (another pastoral candidate, and his wife!) tonight, and my husband is working extremely long hours this week. Of course we have the full and usual round of school + lessons + classes + chores.
In my spare time, I am, inter alia, reading That Hideous Strength, going over lines for Finn's acting class with him, sewing a circle-spiral applique jacket, and planning Annie's Easter dress.
Watching the Amish work hard reminds me that I can do this!
