From the musty infected cold dirty studio I enter this short blog. This is day nine with out heat. The interior thermostat reads 52 degrees in the house. We have warm temps thru today and over the next week predictions starting tomorrow of cold, and by the next weekend possible sleet. My brother dropped off Mucinex last night and it seems to be helping my congestion break up in my chest. I found out I have to fend for myself and started a pot of chicken vegetable soup this morning that will last me at least three days. Terry brought home sourdough bread which makes me feel like I am eating lemons, but maybe with the soup it will work. So no cold sweet potatoes today, hot soup in about two hours. I am only up because I had to get bills paid and pull paintings for shipment. Stacey, my daughter is coming to help me get the bedroom clean and change the bedsheets. She will finish up what I get pulled for her. Morgan fell ill late last night.

Today is a day to mark in celebration for my parents. It is their wedding anniversary. I am not sure of the exact count but it has to be creeping at the sixty mark. There is a lunch today, but I will not be well enough to attend. Again, my little brother was so sweet and did my card hunting for me with explicit directions to what I wanted and he did really really good. I will have him pick those up on his way to the restaurant. I am sad to not be going, but just do not have the energy at all to even think about it. I wish them the best and all my love because they have been the most outstanding example of love, commitment and family. I could not have hand chosen parents any better...they are absolutely over the top! The faith that was instilled into us growing up by their shared beliefs nourished a strong faith in me that I use each day. Their convictions and love in our Lord and watching them apply their faith in their daily living, is a constant reminder to me of the grace of our Father. Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad.



"But now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love."
1 Cor 13: 13
