Borrowing trouble ?!

“Yours truly” seldom leaves home. Residing on a busy street with many neighbors, lots to see. The backyard neighbor had major damage from recent rain storm. Their new roof finished just prior to the rain storm expected to arrive this weekend. If I owned this property, roof repair might be on my “to do” list. But why speculate? I may have to move in five months; only a one year lease. This recent move has caused me pain and grief!! Another move is one thing (of many) that causes depression.

Rescue me ?!

Exhausted, I figuratively dragged myself indoors. Too bad there isn’t a genie to fix me a bite of supper. I’ll settle for a couple of apples because easy to prepare. The thermometer says ninety-two degrees and I was  outdoors in that heat. Why? In the earlier blog message, I mentioned five months remaining on my lease. The “to do”  list is endless!! This afternoon I emptied soil from no-plant planters and washed planters. (I recycle soil because I always purchase top-quality organic and it can be rejuvenated with coir.) ~~ Two dozen green and brown beer bottles were smashed with a heavy brick. (Bottles collected but will never be used for my bottle bushes. No customers at my yard sale interested in purchase of brand-new never unpacked bottle bushes and free bottles. ) ~~ Watered plants; sprayed Fels-Naptha natural insecticide on infected plants. (Here’s an earlier blog message about my homemade garden products.) ~~ Five large garbage bags are ready for proper disposal. Peculiar items: Empty prescription and nutrition containers I used for pebbles for planters,” and styrofoam “peanuts”  likewise ideal in the bottom of planters for superior drainage. (So few “gardeners” in my community; I can’t even give away extra planters and garden paraphernalia.) ~~ Frankly, I’ve already forgotten half the things I did because I hop-scotched from one thing to another. “Oh, do this! Next, do that!!”  Bottom line: I’m getting lots of exercise. Oh yes, picked up limbs, too, because dead limbs falling every day.

Preparing blog messages is relaxing, and enjoyable.

Wacky Wednesday ?

Who bleaches planters? Who recycles planter soil? ~~ Watered plants; pulled weeds. Added lots of discards to a large trash bag!! ~~ Organized more donations for Habitat for Humanity Resale Store.

.

OBSESSIVE-COMPULSIVE: I can’t stay indoors where it is relatively cool. Working in the yard is my therapy for depression. ~~ A friend brought me a “sick” plant to nurse (and I transplanted to a larger container). ~~ The Pansies were past their prime and Marigolds were ready to take their place. ~~ Indoors and outdoors, I’m uncomfortably “hot”!! Perhaps I should lower the temperature inside my trailer home??

Tuesday talking points

Break time?! I’m tired of being tired; I’m tired of being depressed. I forced myself outdoors to tackle projects. Dripping wet with sweat, I came indoors for an “energy drink” break.

.

My camera and I are headed outdoors again to work with things near, and inside, the cargo trailer. The TV meteorologist’ are predicting heavy rain by Sunday Father’s Day. Unfortunately, previously, I neglected things on the table and some are ruined.

Time to retreat to my air-conditioned trailer home.

Have I previously mentioned that I have attempted to hire a strong healthy handyman? I’ve been rejected; my money isn’t any good? Praise God, a strong healthy young man phoned me (out of the blue) and he will be available in July. I’ll save some of my projects for him. (He did projects for me while I was living at the CARE Center.)

A sermon by Dr. Edwin Young: How Not to Comfort.

Like apples of gold in settings of silver Is a word spoken in right circumstances.”

Joel Osteen. Lakewood Church:

#730Room Enough

Are you discouraged today because you’re facing a difficult battle? We all have things that come against us in life and encounter unfair people and situations. But just because you have opposition doesn’t mean you’re not in God’s will. God is in control, and He’s directing your steps. What’s meant for your harm, God is going to use to your advantage. Joel will show you how to stay encouraged and gain a fresh perspective of trials. Setbacks are setups in our lives for God to do something greater. With God on your side, you can rest assured that when adversity arises, a new level is on the way.
