Little pieces make my day

It’s the little pieces that make my day.  I finally purchased a new flannel backed tablecloth so hopefully my quilt pieces will stay up better.   The last one was up for 2 plus years and had many extra threads on it.  The cost was 1.50 and should have been done last year.

I had to go south to pick up the x-ray disc from the doctor there to take to the ankle doctor in Seattle next week.  I asked them to forward it by computer which is what they usually do.  They didn’t have what I thought a good reason that they didn’t want to do this.   So I got to spend two hours going after the disc.

Now, since there is a wedding the end of the month, I need a dress, so Nordstrom’s Rack was my next stop.   It’s amazing.   I had this little talk with God, telling Him my needs and that I didn’t like shopping and wasting that time, would He please help.  He did.   I found exactly one dress that fit and that will work great for this purpose at a very low price.   So half an hour was all it took to take care of a chore I dislike.  I frequently have these talks with my Heavenly Father and am still amazed that He cares so much.    No, I don’t always get what I ask for, but many times I do.


After checking in on the sheep and feeding them a bit early, I planted the tomatoes and peppers that I had started last month.  I am hoping for enough energy to keep this garden going.  So far, I have lettuce, sugar peas (which need stringing), garlic, and onions in as well as the winter crops that aren’t quite done.  I have beets and zucchini that are started and are ready for planting – maybe tomorrow.   I try to get just a half hour including watering in 3-4 days a week.   I hope that will be enough to get everything growing and the weeds down.

  1. The frustration of having to do all that driving… our local hospitals are all online, and my x-rays are available online no matter which hospital in the area that I go to.
    On the other hand, driving got you to Nordstrom’s! I’m always amazed that God cares about even the little things like dresses for weddings! He is SO good!
    Your garden report reminds me that we need to get our seeds started… It’s snowing here today, and we’re supposed to have below-normal temperatures for the next week or two, so it will be at least 6 or 7 weeks before we can think about planting outdoors.
