I've been somewhat busy lately and wishing I had more time to just sit back and think. But God is good and this is probably what I should be doing. We went to the INUMC annual conference in Indy in mid-June and that was different. Yes, different. That's the word. Just like life is so different now in this country. More "different" than I ever thought it would get in my lifetime. But I'm glad I went and I did my duty to my local congregation -- which I was representing. Wendell was a district equalization delegate, so he voted, too. It was fun to spend a day in the city. When we lived downtown Indy we truly enjoyed it and I felt a little tug of wonderful memories pulling me back when we were out walking to lunch. Who knows? ...
Wendell's been to the cardiologist again recently and had all sorts of tests and they say he's doing great. Good news! On the negative side of that equation though, they put him on a drug that costs over $500 a month. And we have no Rx insurance ... We'll figure it out. We have to!
Here's what happening ...
|My potting bench is looking pretty good this summer. My gosh; we've gotten enough rain to keep everything looking good! I love the little chicken feeder/planter I found at an antiques shop in Vincennes; put some succulents and herbs in it.|
|Here's my personal chef ... cooking some steaks he got for Father's Day!|
|We went back to Steve Meadows' gallery in Palestine IL again recently. I got out of there with just one small purchase ... But I'm asking for another pothead for my birthday this year [Wendell: hint hint hint].|
|I made this little lap quilt from left-over scraps from the military walker pockets we made this spring at Project Kindness. I hope some guy in a Greene County retirement facility will be keeping his knees warm under it this Fall.|
|(The details you see everywhere in the hotel are outstanding!)|
|The lobby where you check in ...|
Well, I'll close with this picture of Wendell walking ahead of me on the trail in our woods. It's sort of a freaky picture; he looks like he's being bathed by a heavenly light. That's my guy.
Have a blessed summer and may your trails be full of bird song, wildflowers; may it be smooth, straight and never uphill.
