It's a Jungle Out There & Thinking good thoughts




Here are some pictures of the yard now that the rains have come and the vines and bushes are in full swing. Please to excuse the cars that now are a part of my daily scene. James is in the throws of selling one of them and restoring the other with parts from the one for sale. So, along with the lovely greenness of my valley, I have a used auto parts center on the side of the house. Let me stop to say a silent prayer to the Gods for deliverance in the form of a full-time job for him....anybody....no...Oh well. I've run out of fingers and toes to cross for him and the really bad thing is that the part-time job he has is in the midst of renovation and has been closed for nearly a month. He's having anxiety over no money, no job and too much time to worry. Pray for us.
While you're at it maybe you could think really swell & happy thoughts for my husband. Today he has to see the cardiologist for an "all cleared for surgery" check and Monday is his surgery. I'm really hoping that this will offer him the relief he needs-lack of good sleep and pain make Roger an unhappy boy. My heart is kinda sorrowful for both my guys right now. Here's hoping that next week will bring better things for both of them. I love my guys and I'm worried about them.
Meanwhile I'm still sweating at Curves-missed another day yesterday though. When things calm down a bit I hope to get back into the swing and keep to my schedule better. I also hope to get some sewing done so I can at least pretend to have a blog about quilting again.
Hope everyone has a great day. Sew something for me!

As hard as it is, gotta let son figure it our for himself. And he will, it takes some longer than others, OH, how I've learned!

Fingers crossed for dh, and for your peace of mind.

I'll go sew a block for you today Dee!

You've got some good thoughts and prayers on the way from the NW. Hope all goes well for Roger.

I'll send you good thought for both your guys.

I wish you could send us some of that rain. We still haven't had a drop since last year....I think we've had 2.5" making this the driest year on record so far.

Good for you - sticking with Curves. I've been a little sporadic about exercising and I need to get back into my regular routine again.

As luck would have it - I happen to be an excellent 'good thought' thinker *s* I'll be sure to keep those good thoughts going for you and your family.

Dee, I'm sending positive vibes too. I have no doubt both guys will turn up winners, but I've been there with the worry over a kid finding a job. Right now the father of my two darling grandchildren is trying to get a teaching job--the new career he's prepared for these past 2-1/2 years. I honestly think they need our "guidance" more than ever at a time like that. I told mine from age 14 when they were old enough to work, "Interview for anything you hear about. Even if you're not seriously interested or they don't hire you, you get the interview experience and at the very least you learn what that particular position pays." Stepdaughter started out answering phones and stuffing envelopes at a local brokerage, and ended up a bond trader for Merrill Lynch in Manhattan. Big things start small. Sometimes it's hard for kids to believe it though. Crossed fingers here.

I'm sending lots of good thoughts and prayers your way Dee. I understand about the worry. Try to do something good for yourself. Jen

I don't know you in the traditional sense; I came across your blog because I'm a quilter (I'm also from the south shore of Long Island, but have lived for more than 30 years in San Diego, CA)
But I wanted you to know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Sometimes we hit the rough patches in life, and it sounds like that's where you are now. But you know, don't you, that you are not alone. I can send the prayers; I wish I could send a secret hour to add to your day so you could get a little quilting done....all the best, Mary in San Diego
