On a very personal note



The Cyclamen watch continues–It has been since mid-June when I accidentally sheared off the top of the plant. Looking at it left little hope it would grow back, but I believed against the odds. Soon a leaf appeared, and I breathed a sigh of relief. It is silly to value a little house plant so much; however, it has traveled the journey with me from the first major surgery. It smiled at me with blooms in volume unexpected. It spoke of hope, life, and beautiful life. Yes, I am attached to the cyclamen. If all goes well, next Saturday it will be in full bloom. Today, we have the raised bud– clearly, it is pink instead of dark red.

Preparing for the Total Eclipse-2

Cliff has been in a battle with our little red tractor. I cannot say how many times he has had it apart looking for the problem. It kept running out of fuel. Our son owns an inspection camera. It was a lifesaver–or more aptly it saved Cliff from doing unnecessary work. It appears he has the problem solved. What a guy!

Between all the Weim stuff, the farm, and repairing whatnot Cliff managed to get a little something done in the Utility Bath. I am hoping we can get it done before long. There is some tile work left. Then there is trim work. Other than that, it will remain to be seen what we feel we need once those things are completed.

I am weary of talking about the health crisis I face. I am still improving, but the hole I found myself in at one point was deep. I was not sure there was going to be a return. I still have bouts of coughing. It is a challenge to sleep more than a couple of hours ever–I wake up with phlegm and the urgent need to cough and clear my lungs. Regardless, I am ever so thankful to be better. I am just not able to do everything the way I want. I suppose getting older factors in but it is mainly the exhaustion and coughing bouts when I try to do things that stop me in my tracks. Thanks for your prayer and support.
