Sunday Evening Ramblings, October 6, 2019

'Where can I go from your spirit?
    Or where can I flee from your presence? 

 If I ascend to heaven, you are there;
    if I make my bed in Sheol, you are there. 

 If I take the wings of the morning
    and settle at the farthest limits of the sea, 

 even there your hand shall lead me,
    and your right hand shall hold me fast. 

 If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me,
    and the light around me become night,” 

 even the darkness is not dark to you;
    the night is as bright as the day,
    for darkness is as light to you.'

- From Psalm 139 

That can be terrifying, disquieting, or extremely reassuring, can't it. 

Good Sunday evening to you. It's been a wonderful Sunday, starting with church in the early morning and in the afternoon stopping at the local pumpkin patch for pumpkins and squash. I baked a squash to go with pulled pork and a salad for supper tonight. Topped it off with a gluten-free lemon shortbread cookie (or two or more). Remind me that I don't like pulled pork, pulled beef, or pulled anything else. I'll make pork chops, steak, or baked chicken next time.

 The pumpkins and squash were gorgeous!
And the squash were only $2.00 each.

Then there's the work on the house that's happened in the past week:

I have some progress to report, which is the lattice installed at the base of the front porch, and a lot of the house repainted (continuing this next week if the weather cooperates).

Our family's Early Thanksgiving was called off abruptly as family were actually on their way here for the weekend. No family problems, just a sewer issue that could have been disastrous if Mr. C. had not noticed it when he did. I don't know if we'll be able to re-schedule or not, since there are other family scheduling conflicts in the weeks ahead and we're trying to get the Wausau house ready to live in and the Dallas house ready to sell. There just might not be another opportunity before moving to the big city of Wausau.

 Some of you might actually remember this photo from October 2010, taken in Harper's Ferry, WV. There was a 'bloody hand' lying in the flower bed, and the look on our grandson's face was just hilarious and priceless. I'm so glad I caught this with my camera!

Even though we no longer have dogs (or cats, a very sad state of affairs), I keep this sign that my dear friend Deb gave me in 2012.

I'm planning to move the cookstove (beast that it is) to the Wausau house and the hutch shown above has already been moved there. All the mugs are packed and the mug rack will also be moved and installed on 10' of the big beam that runs the length of our living space.

My most recent 'selfie,' taken so I could ask my daughter if she wanted this dresser with mirror. She didn't, even though I offered to throw the old lady in for free.

We now have a bathroom framed in.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch,
it's dark and I'm tired.
I think I'll watch an old George Gently.
An old movie usually helps me fall asleep.

Have a good evening, everyone.

God bless you,
