My Girl and Another Day
exciting news shared by my youngest.
Africa - that is far from home....

Also in continual prayer for another
daughter and family headed back home
from California.
Some headed to N.Y. and Washington DC,
 terrible storm arriving in that area

Yesterday was a busy day with a
very early dental appointment and
then stopping in 2 stores.
Home, lunch and since the sun was
shining returned to local town for part
of hubcap that had come off vehicle.
Kept thinking whether to replace because
of cost  but
each time I looked at my car I did not
like the way the tire looked and think this
car will last me a few more years.

One more car is in my futureI shared with one daughter,
her remark was "that's sad."  I did not view it as
sad.  A lot of cars in my past and kind of nice to
think just one more car.

Part put on hubcap, washed car, quick trip to Lowe's and found that
blueberry, raspberry and blackberry bushes had arrived.
So these along with another suet container and some
wild flower seeds on a sale table were purchased
 and I left with a smile.

Quick stop in market for english muffins, oranges, apples,
mango and a avocado.
Then had the thought to stop at local restaurant for a carry out of their
ravioli.  Occasionally I find this tasty and had not picked up anything
like this in months.
Headed home
sauteed some Kale and it was good with the ravioli.

So a busy day came to an end.

The young woman who works at the dental office I have
been going to for almost 20 years may come by my cottage today.
She is thinking of building on her family farm.
Wants to see the small cottage I designed and built 3 years ago.
She commented  "I want one big room with no walls."
I replied you need to visit me....

So, Becky
I am looking forward to your visit :)

You have been so happy in this home that I am glad you decided to do it. Yes, the thought crosses my mind that I may have only one or at the most 2 new cars in my future. It seems like a most practical thought.

Tabor, this home and land is where my heart is. The old farm house and the other home I built on this property are too big for me at this stage of life. Yes, you will have 2 or more cars - as you are much younger then me :)
Judy, thank you...

Beverly said...

Sounds like a nice day! I do not plan on another car. This is it, I hope! Glad the whole nation is trying to be frugal, so maybe I will be in style!!! LOL

Beverly it was a good day. So pretty and sunny and I thought of Spring. Today it feels like it is going to snow. My car is 10 years old so think I may need another one:)

Balisha said...

I can remember my folks saying, "Our last car, our last sofa etc" It made me feel so I never say that.
I visited Jamie this morning...what a wonderful experience for her.Your children and grands are scattered, but that's the way it is now days... you raised them to be independent and all follow their interests and dreams.Have a nice day...Balisha

I really don't think I'll need another car; the Jeep rarely gets driven. Just yesterday, the reminder, that I'll need to renew my driver's license soon, came in the mail. The thought hit me -- in ten more years I really shouldn't be driving except on the farm. Only ten more!

Sallysmom said...

I know your heart must be bursting with pride for Jamie.

Great news that the berry bushes have arrived. I, too, am ready to dig! I agree with Balisha, don't count the number of cars left, or anything else...just live!

Balisha, Charlotte, sallysmom, Sandy and Mary, thank you for visiting. On Jamie, proud but really wish she would not go :)
guess I want her like me - go no where :)
Car - who knows? a number of ladies in this small town in their 90's and still driving. I may be driving same car until the end...

Mel, thank you. Sometimes I wonder why I write - but mainly so family will know what is going on here by the woods :)
