Small Stones, Day 21: Frustration

Frustration!
Water pipe heating cable not working.
Water needing to drip 24/7 or pipes will freeze again.
Waiting for the order…
Finally able to track it today.
It was delivered somewhere in Knoxville, TN
last Friday.
I live in Indiana!
Now waiting for the store manager to call
to see what’s next.
Waiting……. 
Then…
What do I see outside my window?
A FedEx truck!
So was Knoxville just a stopping place?
When I stated to the driver 
that the package was in Knoxville.
He muttered, “I guess they 
(the ubiquitous they?) 
were behind.
So who knows?
Not I!
Do you suppose 
THE SHADOW knows?

Too young to know to whom I'm referring?
Go here to read about him or YouTube to listen.

Pondering about My Blog

I've been through quite a bit these past months that I haven't posted. 
First, packing and moving and then unpacking
. The first step of unpacking was my taking down boxes that were five and six boxes high. 
About two weeks after I’d moved and was in the midst of unpacking, I developed horrendous pain in my ribs. I slathered on my gel I use to alleviate Fibromyalgia pain. Realizing that even that was not helping. Trying to make a long story short- Asked for pain pillsNo help; asked for another kindDoctor wanted to see meWent in- he didn’t understand why I was still in painSent me to get x-raysDiagnosis: compressed fracture in my 9th vertebraCause: osteporosisNow on meds for that I’ve discovered that anytime I overdo, pain comes back, not quite full-blown, but enough that I must stop doing whatever I’m doing. That includes sitting at my computer writing. I wanted to bring my friends up-to-date; I’m pondering whether I should stop blogging altogether or do it only occasionally. Thank…

Organic and Fresh Salad

The beans seen above and layered on my salad below are grown by my granddaughter Candice.  The name of the beans is Tanya's Pink Pods. All veggies on her Earth Candy Acres farm are organically grown. The beans are delicious and tender, making a grand addition to my salad. Topping the veggies are dried cranberries, adding a bit of sweetness.
