Blueberry Cranberry bread is cooling
in the little pans that are over 50 years old
and look it ! Many have asked me where did I get this size
which I like better then 2 large loaf pans or one large stem pan.
Cannot even remember but they have been well used and so easy
to freeze a couple of loaves and always one to give to someone.
Up by 5:00, watered flowers, dead headed lillies, pulled some weeds, fed Callie, fresh water in humming bird feeders, 2 loads of wash,
called school boy help-not available he is going to camp, other help cannot reach
but when he is needy a call will be received,
computer, baking and late breakfast of frozen waffle covered with blueberries, banana,
little maple syrup, 2 cups of green tea, handful of supplements and now I am back on
computer sharing and wondering who in the world wants to read of my life ?
Now off of the dreaded Prednisone which has been a journey of high and low doses for
8 years. My RN daughter shared about her good luck with Celebrex. I asked for a prescription
last week to have on hand, the low dose and when pain is difficult I have been taking one after
late lunch and so far works for 6 to 8 hours.
Because of living at the edge of the woods there is mildew covering all most everything.
Sometimes I will use bleach but past that now so put in a call for someone to lightly pressure
wash deck, porches, walks, etc. Do not want to strip the paint, then I remember it has been
5 years since all of this was new. Helper said he was busy now and would call soon, told him to come anytime
when he was not busy with his grass cutting. Also downspouts are now plugged.
There was a time that everything was done on my time table, seemed I was important, not anymore, just so I know
someone will eventually be here is excepted by this one. This is the crew that came the end of last November.
They were excellent, all the leaves were blown in the woods, vast amount of clean up which was
so reasonable with a crew of 5 men. Everything looked so nice when they left can remember
crying... Tight budget also a concern at this time and do all
I can physically but much I can no longer do. Gardening, cooking, writing, reading, just home maintenance, occasional family visits and guess that is what takes up most of my time. I smile when I remember my youngest granddaughter asking me
"grandma, what do you do for fun" guess this is it.
This is where I want to live but when I made this decision 6 years ago never thought about
extra maintenance of living by the woods. Really thought it would not matter, wanted a natural look
but it does matter to me even though I am not as fussy as when I lived in neighborhoods
of the past years.
Enough shared as day continues. Sunny at the moment and rain later today.
