Colossians 3:15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.
Me and Mike in Iceland, doing the Golden Circle Tour, August 2017
It begun as a typical day. Mike was upstairs about 11:10, took his meds, and it was time to leave for Bennett House. While he was there, I went to coffee with a friend, to the bank, to Harbor Freight, and Michael’s Crafts. And I was 10 minutes late picking him up today, but he didn’t seem to mind.
We went from Bennett House to the hospital for some paperwork, and that took about an hour, from there, to Staples, and then home. I didn’t do any outside work today. My arms and hands are still hurting from all the rock I moved yesterday! After I did the dishes, and Mike had dinner, I checked my garden, and I decided not to water it today – I will do that tomorrow. I just discovered I am not supposed to allow the water to fall onto the leaves of the squash, only allow the water to run under the leaves to help prevent mildew on the leaves – who knew??
Mike didn’t want to go to bed last night and at 11 pm I had to make him turn off the tv. I stood and waited until he closed his door and had the lights out before I felt I could go to bed. Finally, that was done, but I didn’t get much sleep, and I was up again at 7:30.
With the business of the day, and little sleep, I am really tired tonight; but just as I was ready to write, I heard Mike coming upstairs. It turns out he knocked his C-Pap machine onto the floor and the water reservoir broke. Fortunately, he had another one here, but that has added an extra 45 minutes to my not getting to bed.
I have made hotel reservations for the evening of the 25th, Mike is going to be gone, and I am going out to do some photography. A whole weekend just for me (actually it’s about noon on Friday until noon on Sunday – so two days for me) I will be going to a couple of pawn shops this week to look for a specific lens for my camera. My favorite lens, a 70mm-300mm is missing. I have searched everywhere I can think of and I haven’t located it in almost 5 months. Not getting out to shoot, click, doesn’t help with keeping track of my gear, but I just cannot fathom where I might have put the lens. I am sure it’s here in the house, but here where??? It will, most likely, show up once I’ve gotten another one 🙂 Regardless, I am getting another one, if there are any at the local pawn shops.
Now Mike is back in his room, and I am able to lay down and get a little sleep.
