This is one of the cactus plants we have in the front yard. Their blooms are always so pretty with the contrast of the colors. We dug them up out of the pasture last year...so easy to care for because they are wild...and not used to any coddling like some of our other flowers/plants.
This past week has certainly had its share of ups and downs. I twisted my back/neck out of joint some way and spent a couple of miserable days. Leon finally said "You are going to see Dr. Crowe now." He is our chiropractor...one treatment and I was back to normal...no pain.
Then when our credit card bill came in...some yahoo had charged a $335.00 T-Mobile phone to our account...so that required several phone calls. Of course, they cancelled the old card and we will be getting a new one. Now I will have to contact several companies who have our card number on file for charges and give them the new one.
For the last several weeks I have been making comments about the weeds in the flower bed at church. We have lots of committees that do a very fine job...but no committee for weed control. So my sweet kind husband agreed to help me with this task. We worked about three hours yesterday and another three hours this morning. He can not get down on his knees so he has to lean over and after awhile he gets dizzy. I can get down on my knees and then usually wind up sitting down..then the problem of trying to get up and move to the next spot.
Well, we accomplished what we sat out to do. However, as loving as my husband is for me and the Lord he said "Never again". I suppose we will have to do some talking with the Building and Grounds committee and see if something can't be arranged to hire someone to do it on a regular basis. Also kicked around the idea of putting in decorative rock. Right now both of us are so sore and stiff we are miserable...sure is the heck in getting old.
Not all has been bad the last several days. We found out on Monday that Holly is pregnant. She and Tony wanted another one to go along with their son. I am hoping for a girl...but will be happy either way.
Had company one afternoon, also went fishing on Saturday at the pond, took Granddaughter and her boyfriend to lunch after church on Sunday, sewed, cleaned house, cooked (very little), quilted ...I suppose that about sums up the rest of the time.
Gas is $3.79 per gallon here...what is it where you live?
