Good evening Folks ~ It is Monday almost 6 p.m. Moroccan Chickpea Chili is reheating for supper.
Today I stopped procrastinating and shed some ‘light’ in this little cottage. I brought in a ladder, got a box of 60 watt bulbs and put them in 5 light fixtures.
My creative space
9 light bulbs later and there is more light in Plum Cottage. I have lamps in rooms, but ceiling lights have been out for quite some time. DH and I used to do this together. He would be on the ladder, would unscrew the nut holding on the globe, hand the globe to me and the blown bulbs and I would hand him new bulbs, he would put the globe back on and we were done. Doing it myself is a whole other story. But, I DID it and was so happy with each fixture done and flipping the switches and having light. Yippee!! So many little things that he did or we did together now are more monumental, at least to me, hence I procrastinate. There’s no one else here, I am the doer and fixer of what I can handle. I thanked God with each fixture done.
I also did three loads of laundry, hoping my machine was going to hang in there. The last time I did laundry there was a weird noise on the spin cycle. It wasn’t as bad today. Maybe I need a new belt, I don’t know. This is a Maytag top loader, bought in 2000. I’ll keep you posted and today I am thankful for the three loads washed, hung out and solar dried.
We had a nice gentle rain yesterday, which did the gardens good. We could use some more and it’s predicted, but time will tell, predictions don’t always come to pass.
Hope you all have a good day tomorrow.
Look for the beauteous and be thankful for your many blessings.
