Getting it done

John 16:33
These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.

It was a typical day for Mike. He slept late, came into the living room and fell asleep on the sofa and was there until 1 pm

For me, I was up at 6:30 and out at the garden. I got the broken connector fixed and proceeded to finish the sides. I still have to staple the heavy mesh onto the outside edge of the boards, but that will take just a little time. I took a break about 9. I had a large glass of water and sat to read my book for a while. Then, I stepped into the garage to determine what I could begin on since I didn’t know how long Mike would stay in his room, and I had barely gotten out there, and Mike was looking for me – I went inside and sat while he laid down on the sofa and fell asleep. As soon as he was snoring regularly, I went back to the garage and began to move stuff around. I made some definite progress, and then I discovered I’d purchased the wrong size shelf holders! So I didn’t get as much done as I’d hope to today.

There is a ways to go, but I feel good about what’s already accomplished. Tonight I am hurting for sure.

There has been an extended period of good, and calm, around the house, and I am praying to keep it that way. A couple of times, Mike began to be upset, but he calmed down and things went forward smoothly.

Since I’ve been asking, and asking, for help with things and the help has been started and not completed, I am proceeding on my own and doing what I can, by myself. So, the raised garden beds, I am almost done with; there is a tall cabinet sitting at the top of my stairs that needs to be finished, and I don’t know what to do with it, I am going to maneuver it into the office and put it into place for now – I am probably going to have to pay someone to come in and finish it, but, doggone it, it’s been sitting there in this condition for almost 2 weeks now! I have been wanting the garage cleaned and organized with no offers from anyone to assist me, so I am climbing ladders & step stools, hanging shelving, moving heavy pieces of lumber up a ladder and onto the shelves, and on it goes. I am going to have to pay, big time, to have a sprinkler line put in. Just 1 line with a faucet is going to cost me $1500! But it needs to be done.

I will continue with my projects, and hopefully, I will find someone who is willing to help me with the heavier things.
