Now, for something more pleasant. Many of you gave me some very good advice about my wrist. I have been wearing my brace to bed every night and I also started taking vitamin B6. Dennis has taken it for almost 30 years for carpal tunnel. I know that if he goes two or three days without it he can barely use his hands. He’s on the computer for 12 hours a day, five days a week. I still can’t believe that I didn’t think of it myself. I believe Val is the one who mentioned it to me. That seems to have really helped a lot. I still haven’t done any knitting but, I have been doing cross-stitching and a little crochet.
I brought the “Sheep Virtues” out of hibernation. They were just waiting for me! I started and finished “Simplicity.”
I only have two left to go. I’m thinking I may outline all of the sheep with a single strand of gray. They seem to be a bit hard to see. What do you all think?
I also started crocheting the “Rainbow Ripple Baby Blanket,” by Celeste Young. I’m using Lion Brand Cupcake yarn in the Forest Path colorway. This is the yarn that was sent to me last week. I just finished the first cake and I’m getting ready to start the second one. This will make a very nice sized baby blanket. I have one more cake in a different color that will make a very nice preemie blanket. Both will be donated to the hospital NICU. I did fold the blanket over in order to take the picture because I didn’t have enough room to get the entire thing in without standing on a chair. 💜
We have some news! Yesterday we took a virtual tour by FaceTime of a house in Omaha. Mandy met the owner’s son and walked through with us. She also sent some photos. I don’t feel like I should post any right now since we don’t know if it will ultimately be our house. It is next-door to Dennis‘s mom. We will be there to do all of her yardwork and help her with anything she needs. It’s a three bedroom, two bathroom house and will fit our needs very well. We were hoping for a ranch style home, but there just aren’t very many of them available in the areas we want to live in. There is a place we should be able to store our trailer not too far away. We are hoping to take some trips, especially in the winter, away from snow! We still don’t know a timeline of when we will be moving or even if we will get this house. We’re hoping it will all work out. No one has lived there for a couple of years but we know the owner very well. She now has dementia and is in a nursing home and her children need to sell the house. They have even offered us most of the furniture if we want it, which would be a big blessing, since we gave most of our furniture to the refugee family who lived next-door to us here in Spokane. We are praying for God’s will. If we are supposed to get the house it will happen. If not, we’ll find something else. This would be so handy though, to be so close to Mom.
I took this picture over a week ago one morning when I woke up to see heavy frost everywhere. I’ve left the poinsettias outside for some color and they were very delicately frosted. I thought they were kind of pretty.
I have a few new readers who don’t know our story about living in the RV and I had said I would tell that story in my next post, but I had no idea that it would be such a long one. I promise I will tell it next time. I’m surprised you’re all still here reading this anyway! (If you are.) I’m wishing you all a wonderful Monday, full of God‘s peace and love. Remember, ultimately I think we are all on the same side.
Blessings and love,
