Checking In

A quick post as days are filled with busyness.
This may be the last really nice day before cold weather predicted arrives.

On computer this morning
"Like cold water to a weary soul
is good news from a distant land"  Proverbs 25:25
The words that greeted me
reminded me of emails from my son
which always are uplifting.'

Long list is rapidly being completed

Yesterday - cleaned drains with baking soda, vinegar and hot water
                    changed heat/air filters
                    cut back more plants and my trusty friend the leaf blower is wonderful
                    shut vents under cottage

A quick lunch at 1:30 which is now my main meal
of salmon croquettes, my turnip greens, black eyed peas, mashed potatoes, corn bread and from the
freezer the last piece of carrot cake from by birthday :)
This early morning
chores continue at a rapid pace and continually am reminded of my son's words to me
"pace yourself and rest more."
It will come after today and looking forward to being inside to finish many ongoing
Still need to have trusty truck serviced...

Thanksgiving around the corner and will be good to see most of family.
So happy my granddaughter Sarah,  the chef :) is working in Nashville and so
pleased is her mom.   Hope this turns out to be something permanent
and would be so nice to have her live nearby as she has been working in
New York in the winter and Nantucket in the spring and summer.

A continual joy is seeing the Orchid my granddaughter sent me for my birthday.
I have good luck with these plants and they bloom on for months.
Jessica, again
grandma says thank you
and enjoy your new job of teaching...
My day begins
and will check in later....

I was thinking of you earlier this morning and then smiled as I read your posting and looked at your photos. So much joy and positive energy I felt as well.
Happy rest of this beautiful day!

You seem to be pacing yourself just fine. Just listen to your body and you are more active than most. That meal looks delicious. Glad that you eat so well!
