In the Midst of Day to Day…

Hebrews 12:14 Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord:


What a lovely day, today. I harvested some garlic scapes, I took Mike to Bennett House, then I went downtown to The Shops. No finding what I wanted, and I ended up going home to meet with Robert for a few minutes.

Then back out. I managed to make it to the post office, the market, and a few other spots. When I went to pick up Mike, he looked at me and said, Oh! Do I get out of jail now? (LOLOL) But he wasn’t laughing! He wasn’t happy today at all. Because I had so many errands to run I didn’t get to do anything specific with the garden except the garlic.

Tonight we also went to Wednesday night dinner and church services. Mike has been, mostly, mild in his actions and attitude. He did ask for the keys to the ride mower today and I told him no. He just sighed and walked away.

I talked to a young man at church and asked if he knew how to put in an outside water line with a couple of faucets and he said yes. So he’s going to come over to the house and see what supplies he needs. I hope this works out.

For now, it seems, Mike is doing well. No big upsets, no big outbursts, no big confrontations. I am feeling a little less stressed about being home so much – I have a few hours a week just for me. I have gotten my personal doctor’s appointments set for the times Mike is at Bennett House and I continue to keep on top of finances, meds, housework, yardwork (I really need help here), and a variety of other chores.
