He was trying to look hard done by but he had just come in from playing with a ball!
I am down with the dreaded sciatica again, it is my own fault, I have been very busy at work and lifted too much too many times.
I have a list of exercises and a heat pad, and no work for a while. I intended to finish at the end of the year so may just not go back. I will miss the people but as the atmosphere is so poor I will not repine.
I have a new follower, Vickie from More Stars in Comanche, she lives in Texas and has a band of four legged ranch hands. Pop over and have a look, it was winning her giveaway that got me my first Texas wild flower fabric, I have slowly added to it and will be cutting into it soon. Any way, glad to have you aboard Vickie, you are most welcome.
A quiet day, a little of my sewing done, photos tomorrow. No shopping, no cooking, We will have the rest of the Chicken Madras with some naan bread and Brinjal pickle.
I have started to clear another cupboard out and have a box of things for the charity shop. We have a good one in our local market town, it is not too pricey and is mainly used by local people. It supports a small cat rescue operation and I will drop off a box of cat food and some cat litter as well tomorrow.
I need to organise a shop for the food bank soon, rather than just take random stuff each week I have an arrangement that I pop in at the end of one month, see what they are running low on and then stock them up the next time they are open. I will see if they need things like Lem Sip and cough linctus, it is the time of year when most people lay some in, I have myself and the cost is prohibitive for anyone with a limited income.
Last time I lugged big bags of nappies from one of the cheapie shops, they were really cheap, it took 3 trips but was worth it.
Reasons to be grateful.
1. I may be in a bit of pain but I have heat and food.
2. I have dried goods, home preserves and frozen food for at least 3 months.
3. I have veg and fruit in store from the garden.
4. I have never gone without food so my children could eat.
5. I have a network of friends that I could call upon if I needed to.
I am one of the lucky rich!
