Dishes, working in the garden, and my new favorite songs!

ARGH! I am taking a break right now from doing the dishes. I HATE doing them. I really our dishwasher worked. I just get so lazy sometimes and don't have any motivation to clean. The Norwex dishcloth I have is awesome though. My house is a disaster right now. I had to move the puppies into a pen in the kitchen, because Paris is due and day now and needed to start living the the kennel. I just wish I had more motivation to clean. The house has just been cluttering for the last 2 weeks and it sucks.

Today Eric tilled the garden so I can start planting any day now!! YAY! I also worked up and weeded the front flower bed today, all I need is some now soil and it will be ready to plant! Tomorrow my friend Meghan and I are going to go to Frieda's flowers to buy some stuff. I will probably get some flowers, tomatoes, melons and pumpkins. I am still trying to decide what else I want to plant in the garden. I think I am going to do the stuff I said above, plus potatoes, peas, carrots. But I am also wondering if I should plant some other stuff like onions, letttuce...

Here are two of my new favorite songs. The first is by Robbie Seay Band and is called Song of Hope. The second is by Fee and is called All Because of Jesus. I love them lots and they uplift me so much when I hear them!!

All things bright and beautiful You are
All things wise and wonderful You are
In my darkest night, You brighten up the skies
A song will rise

I will sing a song of hope
Sing along
God of heaven come down
Heaven come down
Just to know that You are near is enough
God of heaven come down, heaven come down

All things new
I can start again
Creator, God
Calling me Your friend
Sing praise, my soul
To the Maker of the skies
A song will rise

I will sing a song of hope
Sing along
God of heaven come down
Heaven come down
Just to know You and be loved is enough
God of heaven come down, heaven come down

Hallelujah, sing
Hallelujah, sing
Hallelujah, sing

giver of every breath I breathe
author of all eternity
giver of every perfect thingto you be the glory
maker of heaven and of earth
no one can comprehend your worth
king over all the universe
to you be the glory

I'm alive because i'm alive in You

and it's all because of Jesus I'm alive
it's all because the blood of Jesus Christ
that cover's me and raised this dead man's life
it's all because of Jesus I'm alive

every sunrise sings Your praise
the universe cries out your praise
i'm singing freedom all my days
now that I'm alive

Sarah and I have gotten ourselves in the habit of doing the dishes after every meal. We also have a rule that whoever cooks doesn't do the dishes. Since we both prefer to cook over dishes it's occasionally a race home to do dinner! (normally I lose since I work later) That being said, there are a few dishes sitting out since we haven't had a proper meal together in the last few days, just scrounging here and there.

We're not gardening this year, but we finally got a lawnmower! We bought a reel mower (non-powered). I've got half the yard done last night, but I think it's taking longer because the grass is so long.

Eric and I just take turns doing dishes. So the longer you leave it the more dishes there are to do on your turn. It happens all the time. We always leave it. We are both out of the house for 10 hours or more a day, so it it hard to want to work when you get home!
