There’s a stunningly beautiful sky over Red Bird Acres right now. It’s a deep azure blue with light winds. There’s a high of about 50 degrees predicted. Quite chilly but normal for our neck of the woods. The birds are hitting our feeders fast and furious. It’s a job keeping them full this time of year, but neither of us mind. Nature is so delightful to be around and watch.
I’m on the sidelines today as I’ve injured my right elbow. Seems to be tendonitis. I was throwing the hard rubber ball for Sammy and guess I got a little rambunctious. 😘 Opps. 😀 Sometimes I forget I’m not 23 anymore.
But, I’m not one to fret too much about my health or even circumstances anymore. I watched my second step-mother descend into quiet madness over fear of such which did her absolutely no good anyway. Didn’t prolong her life at all. Her constant worrying molded me into a polar opposite of fretting as I promised myself in my salad days to not ever live in fear like that. It’s counterproductive, annoying to others and absolutely useless. Adopting this lifestyle has proven much more peaceful. Life is easier when trusting God instead of the hearsay or news. 😉 And, no matter what we do, if one believes in Jesus Christ, we’re all gonna get called Home one day. ☦️ When your time is up, it’s up! Our best recourse is to be ready. To be clean in our hearts and minds. Our hours are all written down in God’s Holy book and He holds all of us who Believe in His righteous right hand.
We are still working on the Master Bedroom project mentioned previously on this blog but because I can’t help, it’s come to a standstill. So, Steve has gone out to Baptist Village to visit with his ailing Mother. She’s going downhill pretty quickly lately, bless her heart. ❤ Her memory is almost gone. Anyway, I did do part of the project this weekend while it was so wet and cold, which is recover the current lampshades. Yeah, one can do that! (Who knew?!) Saved us big bucks. Clever, huh?! I took the old according style lampshade off which had a smooth covering behind it and … well, I’ll share all that when we’re done. (I’m such a tease.) I think the new look is going to look awesome and we’ve spent very little thus far. I’m going from 90’s eclectic to Farmhouse chic. I wish I could paint the dark furniture but Steve said an emphatic, “NO!!” 😜 Ok, then.
That’s it for today. I hope everyone has a gloriously happy, peaceful, and easy day. Thanks for stopping by.
