...I do not know! Indian Summer went into layering weather this week...cold, breezy, but no snow yet. The tamaracks are just turning and the majority of the trees have decided to do the same. 21 degrees this morning when I headed out.
A week from Sunday we will have pastor appreciation AND another voter's meeting to determine whether we'll call a candidate this time or a pastor from the field again. The letters have been mailed to the members concerning this and will be posted in the bulletin. Seems like all of a sudden EVERYTHING has to be done, then there's a lull...after this weekend there will be a lull in hauling/stacking wood. Doctor appointments/work/secretarial duties/household work...THAT'S WHERE THE TIME GOES!
It was wonderful to have Monday off this week...and two days the end of next week...to get organized (paper-wise and cleaning). Jack will head down to our son's to meet our daughter on the 18th...transferring her things to our trailer...and her puppy dog...who will live with us for a while until she gets a place again where she can have a pet. SO...our cat and her dog...now that should be interesting! Schmitty chases BIG dogs out of the yard, growling, with her tail and back up, so...POOR RAINIER! We did put 4 - 16 foot cattle panals up for a dog run...and Schmitty was quite upset with that. AND...the deck is hers...so...that'll put a crimp in her tail, too, because that's the way to the dog run!
Update on our oldest daughter's SS application: The judge has declared her disabled, so will receive SS, apply for Medicaid and now, maybe, she can get the medical/emotional help she needs. Our former doctor was present at the hearing and the lawyer credits the favorable ruling (1st hearing) with her caring enough to give her testimony in person. She is an awesome Christian doctor and friend!
