It looks like the cable company hasn't pulled the switch on the internet connection yet, so I'll post again.
Just the other day, I was trying to remember what it felt like to have a bad cold. I heard that my daughter and son-in-love were suffering from sinus attacks, and it made me realize that I hadn't had more than a runny nose in a LONG time.
Well, yep, you guessed it........I've got it now. This is the first time I've been sick like this since we moved into this home, I think. ( I am truly blessed !) Full-blown (pun intended) runny/stopped up nose, sinus headache, postnasal drip, slight cough...........phew, what a night I just had ! I'm starting my third day with this mess, so hopefully if it is a cold, it'll be gone in another 4 to 7 days.
In the meantime, my life is easygoing enough, praise God, that I can take naps when the sleepiness from my own naturally-produced antihistamine hits me. That's usually around noon, it seems.
A family member helped us to bring home a couple of sheets of lattice to finish the rear deck area. Now we need to wait on a pretty day for painting. Trimming the old pieces last time was such a joke, balancing them on a wheelbarrow and a lawn chair ! I'm thinking of pulling out my 6 foot craft table and using it for support this time.........I totally forgot about it before. That should make the job some easier.
The plants in the garden look good except for the cucumbers. The leaves on them have turned pale and I don't know that they'll survive. No sign of any sprouts from the okra seed.. UPDATE: I did a walk-through in the garden, and I counted atleast 14 of the okra seed sprouting !
I did plant some Marigolds and some mint in different places, hoping to deter the deer.
" Do you not know?
Have you not heard???
The LORD is the everlasting GOD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and His understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary,
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:28-31
"The Sovereign LORD has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary.
He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught." Isaish 50:4
