Last week was the first of the month - payday for us - and so I haven't accomplished much in the online world as the real world has taken up my time and attention. I am really proud - and substantially more secure - because we purchased a small freezer that fits in the Firefly. We then purchased a months worth of food to put in it. Now I can take a deep breath and relax. Far too many months in the last year I have reached the end of the month worrying about how I am going to feed the husband that high protein diet tomorrow, or the next day. Too many months that by the end of the month I am living on two eggs a day (you can do that, by the way) or nibbling on his leftovers. In addition, I've been able to afford to buy ingredients - you know, the extras you need to take that 12 oz of raw chicken and make it into something wonderful
My husband excels at that. He loves to cook - and I love seeing him WANTING to cook and WANTING to eat again. This week he made a delicious red enchilada soup, and tacos! Yum!
Today the landlord is out front putting in our new gate. Soon we will have a real fence all the way around the lot. I'm looking at plants for ground cover and picking out a full sun spot for the vegetable garden. The Oleanders that came with the place are perking up with a bit of water and love. I can't wait to see them this summer. I bought some solar powered twinkling lights to outline my "landing pad" so I can back the Firefly in after dark and not hit the tree - again. (blush)
We made it all through last week without a hitch at the hemodialysis clinic. Cross your fingers that these good, efficient and effective treatments continue.
So at last it looks as if life will enter a nice, happy routine again. With the help of my dear readers, I hope to increase our income so that we can eventually do a little more than barely survive.
Life is good. Thank you for your time and attention.
