On the Mend

Today’s Bible Reading- Psalm Chapters 107-111 & Romans Chapter 15 Verse 22-Chapter 16 Verse 27.

Good morning, my friends. I hope you’re well. I’m feeling a little better today. I can breathe better. I woke up once around 1:45 this morning and took my thyroid medicine, and then went back to sleep and didn’t wake up until 7:45.

We had ourselves a proper gullywasher yesterday. It absolutely poured down for a good portion of the day. Even our gutter was overwhelmed by the amount of rain. Today, our high will be 87* with a 10% chance of rain. It’s currently a cool 70*.

I’m slowly getting back into the scheme of things around the house. I helped make the tacos last night, and from what I could taste, they were good. Tonight’s supper will be a crock pot special. Ham, green beans and potatoes with cornbread. I’ll probably put that on around 10:30 or 11:00.

To be honest, this meal rotation has been a lifesaver. Mom hasn’t had to ask me what I had planned (and I didn’t have to remember). It’s all there. I laminated the list when I got it finished, so it’s hanging on the fridge now. It also makes the grocery list easier. I don’t have to sit there for hours wondering what I’m going to be making. In other words, it’s a huge load off my shoulders. It’s a six-week rotation, too, so there’s something different every week.

I had a bit more trouble breathing last night, but it could be due to the weather. All that rain washing pollen around. I did a breathing treatment before bed, but I still had trouble with my nose.

It’s such a clear morning, though. The sunshine is crisp. It almost has an early fall look to it, but it’s definitely not early fall feel. Oh! My basil has sprouted and so has my sage and thyme. The other herbs I’m still waiting on. Maybe that rain will help. I had to renew my order for wood chips. Yeah. Not sure when I’ll be getting those wood chips, but I’m still hoping they get here! I’ve been dreaming about my garden for next year. Maybe I could sit down today and get it mapped out. Figure out the companion plants and where I’ll put my trellises. Just get the logistics worked out. I’ve also been looking at apple trees. I think I’ve narrowed it down to the two I want to get. Liberty and Pristine. Not your standard choice ( i.e. Red Delicious, Macintosh, Granny Smith), but Liberty is apparently one of the most disease resistant varieties out there, and Pristine is a great pollinator for it.

At this point, my friends, I’m rambling. I need to shower and get ready for the day. The cats are already fed (thanks, Mom!), and I’ve already munched on some cereal while writing this. Love you all and until next time, stay safe my friends. ❤
