had him remove the glass doors off two of the cabinets
I really like it...
Everything on these shelves has history and the 2 sets of dishes almost 60 years old.
Not worried about dust collecting as everything is used often. I like glasses and dishes :)
Early this morning, glass boy :) arrived at 9:30 to replace glass in old truck. Was told it was not the front
window but back window. A substance used that usually takes care of it and told if problem
returns this young man will return and do back window for 1/ 2 price :) Rain has stopped
needs to dry to blow leaves on porch and deck.
Electrician returned before glass man to install some special lights, new bulbs in cottage
and to think it has been 6 years, they are fine but not pushing luck. He and helper
using high ladders and I asked if the helper could remove some of the leaves from gutters, saying
if you do not have time or want too that is fine..
He said "sure" when paying this special one that has helped me with electrical work
and lately other requests I make for 12 years - noticed nothing listed for gutter cleaning.
I inquired about it and he said "no charge."
I thanked him and felt like crying as it seem lately so many little gifts are given me.
The last 3 years has been difficult to find someone reasonable to do this chore and usually
has to be done several times. When building by the woods this chore never entered my mind.
So thankful is this one,
lately so many special gifts are given to me,
I take nothing for granted as I work with a tight budget.
Much I do not share, seems lately someone is opening a door, helping me with groceries, handing me
something from a high shelf , I sometimes hear "be careful" because I am always moving at a fast
pace." Other times no help received, do not really expect it
I carry on...
prays continually for wisdom, clarity, pacing herself and ability to accept this stage of life.
on cloud 9 and other days not that way....
The burst of energy for 10 days is coming down - but sure accomplished a lot and still
a lot of desk work. Sometimes I have the thought "how can I have so much to do at this stage
of life - calendar in kitchen and one on personal desk - looks like I am running a business for
there is not an empty space
(with some help) and it looks like a greenhouse. They always do so well on this
All workers left by 1:00 dinner time, I drive out the gravel drive to pick up mail and
a dead tree had fell across drive, was able to push enough out of the way for truck
to continue on........so next project finding someone to move this tree to my brush
pile and later burn. Really does not matter if it lays there until Spring...
So I have discovered that my plan 7 years ago for a simple lifestyle, smaller home,
less to do
has not happened as of yet....
Also noticing that every day as it begins to get dark
the deck usually has a squirrel or two chewing on the rails.
Do they like the taste of the paint ?
Posting this evening
and planning on trying to stay off of my friend
for a few days.....
