I have appreciated this….

Isaiah 12:2 Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid. The Lord, the Lord himself, is my strength and my defense; he has become my salvation.”

I enjoy small challenges in photography – I was trying to capture the bubbles, freezing to the snow, but it was to windy – and none of them stuck.

It’s been a very quiet several days, and I have appreciated this. I’m not getting much, if anything, accomplished; however, I am not dealing with major issues with Mike – and to me that is the most important of all.

I picked up some of the supplies I need to do my canning, but by the time I got back to the house, fixed dinner, cleaned the kitchen, put everything away, I was just to tired. My stamina is almost non-existent! I know this isn’t all from being older. I know much of this is from all the sitting I am doing. By the end of our trip to Australia and New Zealand, I had built up quite a lot of stamina and the ability to keep on going. Today, not so much. One thing that doesn’t help, at all, is I am so very tired all the time! I have learned to be a light sleeper over the years, and when I hear a noise in the house, I wake up enough to know if it’s Mike walking around, or not. Lately, it’s been or not. That doesn’t help me with sleep though.

The final piece of furniture came today for the office. Robert is planning to put it together for me – maybe tomorrow, we have to see what his work schedule is first. Mike keeps wanting to open the boxes and look at it, and so far I’ve convinced him to just leave it alone. I don’t want to lose any of the pieces, or the little screws for the unit.

Friends were supposed to have come to visit for this weekend, but with the wind chill factor going to be sub-zero, and weather unpredictable, they decided to wait until later in the spring. I look forward to their visit whenever they can make it.

Now, it’s not even 9pm, Mike has gone to his room and his lights are out, and I am going to do likewise very soon.
