Romans 15:33 Now the God of peace be with you all. Amen.

Mike slept very late today, he didn’t get up until noon. Although I was up at 5, I didn’t do much. I sat and read, had a cup of hot tea, went through some papers on an end table in the living room and then Miss Emma showed up. (The young woman who does light housekeeping for me)
Emma was here for 2 hours and did a nice job, I love having her here and I am going to start having her do more stuff for me. She’s very exact in not touching anything without permission, which I am happy about; but then, that means she also will not dust the very tops of cabinets (where I can’t reach) unless I remember to ask! 🙂 She does a fine job and I sometimes will be able to get Mike up, and out to breakfast, while she’s here.
Once Mike got up he sat on the sofa for a while, and then he dozed off again. Around 3 pm I was able to get him out of the house for a little bit. We went to Lowe’s and he really struggled to walk. He kind of leans forward, shuffles his feet and loses his balance. After trying to make a purchase, and he couldn’t find me, then was unable to stand in line with me, I gave up. I put the items down, that I had planned to purchase, got Mike by the arm, and led him out to the car. Once he sat down he very quietly said, “Please take me home” So I did.
We were home about an hour and I was in the garage doing some stuff, and he tried to close the door on me. When I called out, “Hey!” He was startled, apparently he didn’t know I was out there. Anyway, he said he was looking for me, to tell me he was going into the shop. I waited a little while and he came out again with a small hand saw. I asked him what he planned to do with it, and he told me he wanted to see if it worked. He walked toward my lilac bush to start sawing on it – I stopped him and he said okay, I’ll find something else to cut. We talked a minute more, and he turned around, grabbed one of the lilac branches and raised the saw. “Hey! DO NOT cut my lilac bush!” He muttered something about having no control over anything and stomped off to the shop to put the saw away. When he came into the house he laid down on the sofa and slept for almost 30 minutes. Then he ate a grilled ham and cheese sandwich I made for him, headed for the family room and then to bed. Now it’s my turn to turn off the lights.
