Today’s Bible Reading- Exodus Chapters 29-33 & Matthew Chapter 22.
Hello, friends. I hope y’all are well. As the title implies, God gave me a break from the neighbor’s cats yesterday evening and this morning. It was a nice break from the stress of shooing them away. Yesterday, only one of them came to try and weasel into the food, and I only had to toss him off the porch once. This morning, the other weasel tried a couple of times and then gave up. I’m not trying to be mean to them, but they get fed elsewhere and if I feed them once, they’ll bring all 30 of their friends back with them. It was nice to have just the two eating. It was quiet and relaxing.
The sock is testing my mettle today. Somehow I’ve screwed up the stitches. How did I do it? I have no idea. I’ve followed the directions to a tee. I’ve kept my count correct. For some reason I’m coming up short a few stitches on the row I’m doing. Maybe it’s supposed to do that? I have no idea. I’m trying to compensate but now I may have a bit of a wonky sock. 🤨
In other news, the neighbor’s house that’s for sale had a showing today. I don’t know if anything will come of it. I hope we get some nice neighbors, though. Speaking of said neighbor, she has never come back to get Tabitha, so I guess Tab is ours now. I don’t feel bad about feeding her. I feel sad that someone would just leave her like that.
No news about Gracie yet. They said it’d probably be today or tomorrow before I’d heard from them. Meanwhile, my mom is preparing birthday boxes for a niece and nephew of mine. Nope, they aren’t twins. One has a birthday on the 7th and the other one’s birthday is on the 12th.
I also noticed something this morning. Well, it’s more like I heard it. I had to use my parents’ bathroom because Mom was in the other one, and when I flushed the toilet, I heard pouring water. I had the sink running to wash my hands and I couldn’t figure out if it was the acoustics of the bathroom because it’s so small, but something in me said no. So I checked. The floor behind the toilet is absolutely soaked through. I should mention that the floor is carpeted. What person thought a carpeted bathroom is a good idea, I don’t know, but it’s a mess back there. So one more thing to fix when Pop gets here.
As I was writing, my mom came in and handed me five letters. Each of my nieces and nephews sent me a thank you card for their Christmas presents. Some of them even drew me some pictures! How sweet is that?! Made my day. 😍
Well, that is my update for today. I think most everything is changed over with the bank. I had one bill to pay which seems weird. We have to go to the post office today to send out the birthday boxes. Other than that, I can’t think of anything new. I just remembered that I didn’t take the pork chops out of the freezer.😳. I need to get on that.
Until next time, stay safe my friends.❤️
