Going Forward

heat/air man arrived and hopefully heat works through the Winter,
I asked "what do I owe you" he replied with a smile "nothing - Happy Birthday."
(I had shared with him that cooler nights expected and daughter from Florida
arriving and may need the heat on"
so I thanked him and thought what a blessing...
Electrician arrives this morning
to change batteries in smoke detectors,
last year they went off and my visiting daughter
could not get them to stop - had to call fire department,
also could not reach with higher then normal ceiling,
also light went out in oven and he will replace bulb,
guess 6 years is about time and this oven used a lot.

Special call from one who attends local church that I was such
a part of in past years,
I said "are you home from your brother's funeral in Illinois"
she said "no" just calling to check on you....
A dear person...

Special one who visits weekly with eggs
on last visit brought me several Molasses cookies,
oh they were so good.   I asked for recipe and made yesterday  morning
sure made a lot
good and I have ate about 6 with a glass of milk.
Will be making again :)  Hoping she soon feels better as she now has bronchitus.

My bones tell me rain is on the way,
more accurate then looking at weather on television.
Why is is pain is always the worst at night
daytime tolerable?

So this day
I was born
many years ago.
Time you have gone by too fast.

My special daughter arrives about lunch time..
This picture a few years ago on her visit...
