Bountiful Basket Hijinks......

I woke up being excited that it would be contribution day for Bountiful Baskets.  We had asked for an earlier time several weeks back, if that is something they could ever accommodate. We really had no hope of a change as we were the last site on the route, but one can hope and one can ask.  Much to our amazement we got word,  a total welcome surprise about a week or so ago that we would get a new time.  The only catch was that we would have to change weeks.  We were going to have to change from an A week to a B week.  We thought that was great we would end up having Bountiful Baskets two weeks in a row to make the change and tell everyone.  Well yesterday our delusions were put right.  Yes we are changing to a B week but the last A week did not happen.  You can not imagine the phone calls, emails and messages that Lady and I have had on this mix up.  I had placed a status in on our Bountiful Baskets Page of the change of weeks, but since we did not have a distribution day after getting the news of the change we could not update all of the people who contribute. I quickly updated all on the page but all do you have the page.  We were not prepared for there being no A week this week and our volunteers, and contributors are lost to what is happening, and are making calls to find out what is going on.  I love that so many are faithful to the Co-op and it's importance in getting good produce in our community.  The calls were a blessing in the end, but a lot of work.  It amazes me of how much good the coo-op has done in such a little bit of time.  Remember to order next Monday for our first B Week on April 20, yay Bountiful Baskets. Our volunteers and co-op participants rock!!

Pre-school this morning,  it will be interesting since we are still in the middle of building our island in the kitchen and the desk for the computer, which is right in the middle of the living room, so I hope she bears with our confusion.  I am loving the changes but poor Poppie is spread so thin, he and Mokie have been moving Bugs and Daughters stuff in to two different storage units.  Poppie has been feeding his friend animals every day for several weeks, so draining, and I have been trying to get Poppie to finish up my project, the ones I can't do.  I am so excited I have decide to tile a back splash and paint, but I can do that part.  Ironically several years ago I bought some hardwood to make chessmen but we never actually finished the project, the white hardwood is the exact size we needed to finish the desk and the black hardwood is just the ticket to lengthen the legs on the island.  The Lord is patient and gives us little messages if we only listen to his guidance.  I know some of you think I am belittling the Lord in thinking that he would care about my island or make allowance for it but I don't think the Lord ever considers his children's needs are beneath him.  He knew we would have a need when I bought the hardwood we just didn't know exactly when as he did.  The Lord does work in mysterious ways, loves us beyond reason, gives us gifts of his love and messages of his presence if we but listen..... tomorrow.
