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.
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
"NOW THANKS BE UNTO GOD, WHICH ALWAYS CAUSETH US TO TRIUMPH IN CHRIST !"
The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear....Psalm 27 1-3
Psalm 31: 7, 8
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.
