The Day is Finally Over


Did anyone get the number of the truck that hit me? Wasn't a truck???? That's what I feel like happened to me. Every bone and muscle in my body is aching. Got up bright and early to finish cleaning the living room. My neighbor and I went to Raeford so I could pay our county taxes. I then took her to Walmart so she could purchase a microwave and other items. Took her home, set up her microwave, showed her how to use it and came home. Covered the iguana's summer outdoor house and pen with plastic and filled the closed in part with wood shavings. Put in two heat lights and moved the baby chicks out of the house. They have grown so fast! They already have their wing and tail feathers and trying to fly out of the box we had them in. Where I put them they will stay warm plus have a nice fenced in area to scratch and peck in. The cats don't like I moved them but they will get over it. It took about 4 trips to get them all moved and I had to crawl in the pen each time and I do mean crawl. They are happy and walking around right now and I got rid of the chicken box and all the dust they stirred up in the house. I made a trip to the feed store to get a bigger water and feeder plus a 50lb bag of starter which I had to put away when I got home. The weather is cooling off this evening so I carried and stack wood for the night and built a fire. My neighbor called me to come back and show her how to work her microwave again so I walked back over and showed her again and will probably have to show her in the morning as her memory is getting worse everyday. Worked on another raised bed for a little while till my back said enough and came in and did 2 loads of laundry. Tomorrow is suppose to be a sunny warm day so want to finish all my inside work this evening and spend all day outside working tomorrow. I am feeling my age tonight but hopefully after a hot shower and a good nights rest I will be rested and ready for a busy day. Ft. Bragg decided to play war last night with the big guns so didn't sleep well with the windows rattling. Praying they finished their war games and will let everyone sleep tonight. Well I had better get up and move or I won't get my shower or anything else done.
Enjoy your neighbors, enjoy your daily tasks, enjoy your pets, enjoy your family and home but most of all enjoy your daily blessings!!

Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. John 5:39

Don't you think that some of our trouble is in being content with simply reading, not studying the Bible?

Peggy, you got so much done in just one day! How wonderful you are to your neighbor...thats so good to hear. I was wondering how your chicks are doing, so glad to read about them in this post. I like your comment on the scripture verse...its true, we need to meditate on the Bible. Brings to mind Psalm 1...love that one especially....smile.

Peggy, It seems to me you live the scripture, and that is the beauty of the word!

no wonder you are aching all over. ever tried a warm bath with epsom salts in it? wonderful for tired aching muscles.
sometimes, it is just good to read a verse or two of the Bible and take it with you for the day. I think we study way too much.

I would say this would have been a good day to have received your pampering Seasonal Care box..... You are a worker Peggy....I can feel my back ache, just from thinking about starting to work in my yard......Have a Good Blessed Day!
