With my new table, with plenty of space for two laptop computers, I’ve spent two days trying to find one elusive man. (Two additional days.) I’m trying to resolve the questions asked of me by a DNA “cousin.” Searches are tons easier when I can work between two computers!!
It is three o’clock as I prepare this message and the indoor-outdoor thermometer says eighty-two degrees outdoors in my sunny front yard. I was so engrossed “climbing the family tree,” I completely failed to notice the beautiful weather!!
Just kidding (lol) because it’s a story about two nights. Night-before-last, I slept cold. Last night I awaken because I was too hot!! “Off” switch was pushed on the electric mattress pad; the goose down sleeping bag was quickly removed from the bed. To further complicate a good night’s sleep, a terrible cramp in my leg!! I take magnesium tablets to stave off leg cramps but “magnesium” didn’t do its job? I’m wide awake and decided to prepare this message (at one in the morning). My “old” laptop computer, “old faithful” stopped working and I switched to the newer laptop (now that I have a large table to work on). I’m beginning to suspect my computer problems are a “router problem.” The local TV-WiFi service (recommended by my new neighbors) does not compare to the DISH-TV and Hughes WiFi I enjoyed previously. (I’ve called Spectrum several times about my TV reception.) ~~ I’m not complaining; I’m just documenting the events in my life twenty-five days after the relocation from Livingston to Waco.
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.
P.S.S. I stand corrected: It is a “comforter” and not a quilt.
