Are there any gamers out there?

I have one game that I do play...

Animal Crossing New Horizons...

would love to know if any of you play, too...

or if you play other games...

so drop a comment below if you do...

might be a share later on, maybe once a week...

have good days!

Got some life going on here...

Sunday right after lunch the fridge quit running...

called the repairman Monday morning...

it's toast...

but the service guy had one, very clean, almost identical to what we had, and cheap...

$200 for a used one isn't bad...

that was for the fridge and the delivery later that evening and hauling the old one off...

we jumped on it...

saved us a ton...

thankfully, we didn't have a lot in the fridge and crammed the frozen food in the little freezer we added to the house earlier this year...

very little loss, and probably things that needed tossed anyway...

DH is having shoulder problems, too...

he saw the dr, got the steroid shot...

that worked for about 10 days...

its getting worse again, so now he gets and xray and starts therapy next Thursday...

he has bursitis in his hips and he has all the symptoms for the shoulder...

hope that's what it is because one shot will fix it...

we don't want it to be the rotator cuff...

or surgery...

so keep him in your prayers...

we need all the help we can get...

have good days and thanks for coming back here... 

I need to come back to this...

Hello...

it's been awhile since I last posted...

things get in the way sometimes...

I need to come back to this...

I have missed it...

and you...

I hope you are all well...

and my sweet friend Susie, I am so sorry you lost Ted...

we are all still here...

I have lost major ground in the last two years since DH retired...

but he has been here every day helping me get through it...

I haven't taken a photo in a long, long time...

its time I did that again, too...

we are gearing up for the toy drive again...

and as I have decreased, more have come into the group to take my place...

a true blessing...

I can still do the planning, organizing and getting it all pulled together...

but there are those who have really stepped up and took over the physical part for me...

amazing people...

soon, the whole thing will be handed over to a whole new younger bunch...

as it should be...

hope your days are good...

and you're doing well...

Just a thought...


“Sex,” I was pretty sure, meant whether you were a boy or girl, and “sin” made Tante Jans very angry, but what the two together meant I could not imagine. And so, seated next to Father in the train compartment, I suddenly asked, “Father, what is sexsin?”
He turned to look at me, as he always did when answering a question, but to my surprise he said nothing. At last he stood up, lifted his traveling case from the rack over our heads, and set it on the floor.
“Will you carry it off the train, Corrie?” he said.
I stood up and tugged at it. It was crammed with the watches and spare parts he had purchased that morning.
“It’s too heavy,” I said.
“Yes,” he said. “And it would be a pretty poor father who would ask his little girl to carry such a load. It’s the same way, Corrie, with knowledge. Some knowledge is too heavy for children. When you are older and stronger you can bear it. For now you must trust me to carry it for you.”
- from The Hiding Place: The Story of Corrie Ten Boom
We are asking our children to carry loads that are way too heavy for them. They should not be forced, as children, to see and feel the world through the lens of adults. Innocence is worth protecting and worth fighting for. We need to do our part as teachers, parents and caregivers to carry certain things for them until they are old enough to bear the load.

I think he was a pretty fine father...
innocence is worth fighting for...

have a blessed day...

Happy 4th!

well, we did get a smidgen of rain...

and it cools off from time to time...

85 today, so not so bad but heating up again soon...

no plans for this weekend...

our town did their fireworks and festival last weekend...

the old man is mowing part of the yard now...

it's been 4 weeks since that part was mowed, but its not brown like the neighbors' yards are...

it wasn't that tall, either...

got blooms on the tomatoes and green beans...

they went in a bit late this year...

did my bloodwork Friday morning...

all the vitals were spot on...

I should hear Monday or Tuesday on the lab work...

other than that, its been pretty boring around here...

have a safe and happy 4th!
