I promised this little blocks quilt last night, that today was its finishing day I kept my promise and it is finished including the hanging sleeve on the back. I think it will get to hang either in the living room until I make something else I want to hang there.
DH and I have been reading and watching videos that were recommended to us for his symptoms. We decided to try the juice fasting program for 21 days first to see if we would get any results (we are both doing it). This was our third day and so far, other than less thinking about what to fix, I haven’t noticed any difference. But that really isn’t very long, so we will keep at it. But the carrots in the garden are going at a fast rate. I may have to buy some for the last week and I had a LOT of carrots in the garden. I used a quarter of the pumpkin in the morning drink as well. Who would have thought to eat raw pumpkin other than the sheep. I will keep you informed if this makes us feel any different.
This week was one to “hang on tightly for a wild ride” and try to enjoy the ride as the disasters happened.
A shattered cell phone
A broken cooktop
A computer not working
2 now defunct microwaves
I’m hoping we are at the end of this ride. The phone has been replaced for a very small fee, courtesy of Apple. A new cooktop sits here in the entry way awaiting the installer. The first microwave died after many good years of use. We went to use it and it was too tired to move. So we brought in the other one which was given to us several years ago and had seen little use. It worked for 2 days. After an on-line search yesterday, I found one to purchase at Amazon – yes it did cost $13.00 more than if I went out and picked one up. However, it was snowing in the morning and they delivered it in about 6 hours to the front door. We were willing to pay for that convenience. And so far it works wonderfully.
The computer was quite another story. I spent Saturday night and most of yesterday, until midnight, working with the Geeksquad on-line to get it back up and running. We don’t know why it misbehaved, but after all that time, and 3 different “geeks” on their end, it is up and working again sans my email list of addresses. Their advice is to get a different email program before it happens again as it has been happened to others as well.
God has blessed us that we are not usually big spenders, grow much of our own food, and only buy necessary clothes, so we had the savings to handle these issues.
Look at this blessing that opened out of season. There is only one stem, but unexpected and we are enjoying it
Today, we went to exercise, bought grain for the sheep, and took a nap. Maybe tomorrow, we can get back on track. It’s time again to clean surfaces that attract “stuff”
