Today has been a resting day.  (That's a nice way of saying "I haven't done a single productive project today.")  Richie decided not to go to work this morning because he hasn't been feeling very well for the last couple days.  We're thinking he may have a cold.  Bummer!  Also, we know it's going to be a long day and an early morning tomorrow to make the appointment in Seattle.  The appointment is to talk with Richie's doctors and the surgeons who will be preforming the surgery on November 15th.  Yes, we found out the date of the surgery yesterday.  The 15th was later than we expected, so Richie was a bit disappointed.  But the doctors know what they are doing, and I really do think it's better that the surgery happens later.  Richie still has some recovering to do from the chemo, and a lot of new red blood cells to make.  For a couple weeks Richie's been having some pain that we think is related to the stent they put between his bladder and kidney...but he's been worried all this time that it may be an infection.  It will be good to talk to the doctors about it tomorrow.  Please pray that the appointment goes well tomorrow, and that everything is good and normal with Richie's body. (As much as it can be right now!)  Also pray that we would continue to rely on the Lord and trust that He is in control.  We both tend to worry about things when we know we shouldn't! 

Yesterday Tyler Janke brought his excavator and dug out a place for our greenhouse!  Yay!  Putting up the greenhouse is going to be a project, but it will be so nice to be able to grow food year-round and extend the season! 

It was raining hard pretty much the entire time Tyler was here.  Tyler had to dig down about 7 feet to get the spot level...and the greenhouse is a 20x48, so the project was a sizable one.  It only took him a few hours! 

Oh, and today is our 4-month anniversary!!!!!! ♥
