today

Today:

  • Washed clothes...and the washing machine quit working halfway through a load.
  • Spent 3 hours with a seam ripper tearing out 2/3 of a row of quilting that is absolutely horrible. Not sure how much is user error and how much is a quilting machine that doesn't quilt like it is supposed to.
  • Attempted not to focus on the remaining 5 rows that must also come out. One moment/stitch at a time.
  • Pieced a little on a QOV quilt.
  • Tried not to look at the wheel tracks in the floor...that I just cleaned Friday afternoon. I could fill up a planter.
  • Rejoiced that the pond drain is FINALLY unstopped and water levels are almost where they need to be.
  • Spent some extra time in prayer for Bobby's sister and niece as today was his oldest nephew's birthday. He would have been 38.
  • Got the phone call that the father of same nephew died tonight. While he's not been a part of the Bryan family since I've been on the scene, he was one of the few friends that didn't treat Bobby any differently after his accident - and that is huge.
  • Answered the phone. It seldom rings here...but it seems we've had a call at least once an hour today.
  • Checked on incubator eggs...still no chirping or piping.
  • Mentally geared up for tomorrow...dog to train on a new collar, medical supply company to deal with (a-GAIN!), and errands to run.
So thankful that my joy is not found in circumstances!
