Better sleep ?!


The air mattress is comfortable BUT “cold” underneith me. Gratefully, I found the electric mattress pad (in the storage building) and appreciate that I won’t sleep “cold” and uncomfortable again.


Somewhere in the storage building, I have blankets. When weather permits–and I have a hired helper–the storage building will be organized. Meanwhile, I’m grateful for the wonderful, extremely-warm goose-down sleeping bag. The fabric reminds me of silk or satin because it is so smooth. Hence, it easily slides off the bed. Therefore, “necessity is the mother of invention”  so  I created two weights. (FYI: An attractive RV sleeping bag remained in the 5th-wheel trailer because it “matched” the bedroom.)

The location of surplus bedding is still a mystery. I found the quilt that has sentimental value. My mother had a closet full of polyester dresses!! After she went to our Heavenly Home, I took the dresses to my Old German Baptist Brethren “cousins” in Modesto, California. Dear, dear family members lovingly prepared this quilt. My mother went to be with Jesus on 29 Sep 1994. After all these years, I can still “see” my mother in various dresses.

Better water ?!

In my new home, in a new location, I’m forced to buy water. Now I realize how fortunate I was to have delicious “well water” for two years. There were only eight or nine residents on that well and (as I said) I failed to appreciate the excellent taste. Here in Waco, in this RV Park, the water tastes awful!! My expensive TuraPür filter doesn’t enhance the flavor. A new neighbor introduced me to The Water Tree and I’m enjoying their product.

Better business ??

I’ve come to the conclusion that Wayfair  needs “better business.” Several weeks ago, I ordered a TV stand and a folding table from Wayfair. The TV stand arrived promptly but there was a delay for the table. Wayfair  has harassed me for ten days requesting confirmations that the table could/would be delivered on Friday, Jan. 24th, between ten and two o’clock. I can’t “confirm” on my “dumb phone.” I called… and told the customer service representative that I would be home; I was confirming! Email messages and phone text messages came several times every day. At two o’clock (today) a text message arrived saying my order was complete. That message forced me to phone Wayfair  and complain about “no table.” Enough said (?) because the delivery finally arrived (about four). ~~ Now I’m experiencing a problem with the pictures. Strangely, I can only attach the pictures in the “thumbnail” size. Click each picture to enlarge for better viewing.

The view…

…and not the TV program with that name. The view of my living room before and after the delivery of a folding table. This is another purchase from Wayside. (The TV stand arrived earlier this month.) For the first time since I left Lancaster, California (in 2004), I’ll have a large work area for my genealogy hobby.

Going nowhere fast ?!

Every day I see progress but I feel like I’m **NOT** making progress. Know what I mean? Lack of sleep–and a headache–contribute to this “grumpy” message.

This is my “journal” and I’m reporting details on Thurs. @ 2:15 PM.)
