On Saturday morning I vacuumed my car and wiped down the inside. It was slow, clumsy, and difficult to do for me, but the car definitely looked better after I was done! As we drove to do some shopping (in the clean car), I told Lena how much I always enjoyed doing the regular Saturday activities: cutting grass, washing/vacuuming the car, sweeping the garage, etc. Man was created to work, even before the fall into sin. An unemployed man, or a man who cannot do the things he feels called to do, is not the way we were meant to be. My advice is to enjoy doing these chores while you can, it could be taken away. This was the last time I will be washing and vacuuming the car. Yet another tent peg has been pulled and that's okay.
We got the Canadian tire flyer in the mail this week, and I noticed that turkey fryers were on sale. I have recently been thinking about trying this with our family. It is a kit that has a 36 liter pot with a burner that you attach to your barbecue tank. You immerse the turkey into the hot oil very slowly with the included lifter, and it comes out crispy golden brown in 3 minutes per pound. A 12 pound turkey is done in 36 minutes. We practiced with a couple of 5 pound chickens, and they turned out amazing. ‘Finger lickin’ good! A highly recommended red neck activity for thanksgiving dinner. The reason I'm telling you this is because even though I am dying I am going to keep on living! Life is still beautiful and I am still enjoying God's good gifts of food, drink, laughter and family.
