This week has been busy but productive. The weekend was even better and full of surprises…my brother and sister in law was the best surprise ever. They drove from Texas to visit.
It’s such a blessing to have people in your life that love you…just as you are. Cheering for your successes and praying for your strength. After briefly speaking with my husband and giving him an encouraging word…we left him to continue resting and made our way outside to check out Vetta’s Garden 😊
I even took them out back and showed them where potatoes were planted as well as sweet potatoes with a few leaves peeking out from the sweet potato to say hello. We then sat out front and enjoyed the breeze that was coming off the water and talked until we couldn’t talk anymore…such pleasant conversation. Deep, meaningful and much needed.
On Sunday, I did laundry, cleaned the house and rested; preparing myself for the week ahead.
On Monday, my husband had his second round of chemo/autoimmune therapy; 4 hours this go round. He did well. His weight improved and we were thankful for that 107 weigh-in in contrast to the previous 97lbs. My prayer is that after this session he doesn’t fall back into the previous pattern of complaining about the taste but rather be mindful that he is not eating for pleasure…he is eating for survival.
We sat out back after his session for quite a while and enjoyed the birdies. Then it was nap time!!!
On Tuesday and Wednesday we stayed close to home…he had wanted to take a ride both days yet after getting dressed he was exhausted and we stayed in so that he could rest…I actually went out, to the garden that is.
I brought in the few potatoes that I had found while digging around the garden…I was sure that the cold weather in previous weeks had did them in. I also harvested some oregano for oregano oil and some will be dried for cooking. The house smells absolutely delightful as I let it sit out and air dry.
Just when I thought I’d take a break, my little feet found their way back in the garden and these little hands decided that we need to sow more seeds, so that’s what happened…
I absolutely love these beans. A few years ago I was growing them so well that we almost got tired of eating them. I pray they grow in leaps and bounds this year so that I am able to can as many as possible. A few Johnny Jump up and it was a wrap. I also managed to sow several more marigolds seed before I called it quits for the day.
I just love it when productivity produces results.
Blessings Abounding, Vetta
