Psalm 27:1 The Lord is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?
A castle in Scotland. August 2017
Mike’s days are mixed up. He usually has PT on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but do to a schedule conflict we had to go in today, Monday. Then he wanted Elmer’s for lunch, and, of course, the regular Tuesday waitresses weren’t there, and that confused him more. Poor baby.
After we got home, he went out to the shop to move boxes around. I don’t know if he’s feeling accomplished doing that, but he’s spending a lot of time at it. He keeps bringing in small ‘treasures’ he finds. A box with bed linens, a box with cookbooks, a packet of seeds – who knows how old they are? – and a variety of other things. I am almost to the point I am going to have to start throwing things away as soon as he goes out again. He places said treasures on the sofa next to me for me to investigate and gush over his current find. I can hardly keep up with the pile of coats, jackets, and hats he’s hung on the chair; and now I get to deal with more. But, he’s content, and he believes he’s helping, so I am not going to tell him to stop. He’s been telling me he feels inadequate and has no sense of purpose anymore. I’ve tried to tell him his purpose is to keep me company! However, he wants more to do, and as it warms up he’s going to be out in the shop for longer periods of time. (I can tell that’s where this is going)
Tonight, Robert came in, with the kids, and they fixed dinner for everyone. Robert let the kids do most of the stuff, after he gave them some minor instructions. They made hot dogs with chili and cheese, and pasta salad. It was tasty and clean up was a breeze – the kids also did the majority of the clean up!
Now, Mike’s asleep, and I will be turning out my lights really soon.
