Don’t get old.

1 Corinthians 14:33 For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.

Bourton on the water – the Cotswolds, England July 2017

Mike was awake by 10:45 and when I went to make sure he was up, he was, in fact, getting dressed. He was upstairs by 11 and I had his morning meds ready for him. He finished taking them by 11:15 and started to lay down on the sofa – “Mike, we have to leave.” He thought he was going to lunch with the guys and they were going to pick him up. I got him to the car, and then to Bennett House.

I met with Charlene Dawson for lunch at Vine and Olive in Riverstone Plaza. It was a good 90 minute time of visiting and enjoying the delicious citrus salad with grilled chicken.

I picked Mike up a few minutes early this afternoon, and our neighbor, JoAnne, came by to say hello and to tell me about the ladies retreat from our church. It seemed like a delightful time and we had a good chuckle about several items that we discussed. After she left, I went to work on the garden sections, again. I have spent over 15 hours working on this d*&%ed thing and I am not happy with how it’s turned out. The bottom pieces coming loose and falling apart as I was trying to put the top pieces on. 😦 We’ll have to wait and see how long these things hold together.

As of now, I am set on purchasing bags of soil tomorrow, after we go to the chiropractor. I have no other way to get any soil for the beds and my plants won’t last long if they don’t get into the dirt. I am figuring I will need 8-12 bags each at least 3 cubic yards. Minimum cost will run me about $150. I wonder if I could rent a small dump truck and get a few yards of premium soil that way? Hmmmmm.

Right now, I hurt all over. My muscles ache, my hands and feet hurt, and I am exhausted from the lifting and pulling. I just don’t have the strength like I used to, and I am much slower than I used to be. Doubly whammy. Don’t get old! hahaha
