My first movie critique ...
“If believin’ the way they does, makes them the way they is, it bides lookin’ into sometime”. This was a line in the movie ‘Loves Long Journey’ spoken by the character named Scottie. He was responding to another character (Cookie – the cook) as they were both talking about a young couple having a church service in their home out on the Prairie. He saw something in this couples actions that impressed him enough to say this. Now that is a life well lived. This movie is a part of a 3 movie series adapted from a book called ‘Love Comes softly’ written by Janette Oke. I highly recommend it to the whole family – watch it together, too. We thoroughly enjoyed it.
We need some rain, but one lady told me to watch what you ask for, 'cause you could get a Hurricane'. I guess she's right. We need a steady, moderate drizzle all day long - and also that everyone driving in the rain would remember that they are inded driving in the rain. We forget sometimes.
C.J., the "NEEM" product you recommended works - it is organic and you can spray up to harvest day. NEEM is an extract from - you guessed it - the Neem tree (Azadirachta indica). This has been used in India for centuries to protect stored grains. It is affective on mites, insects and nematodes. The best part is its low toxicity to humans and other mammals. If you need something like this for your garden, be sure to check out the label before you buy. As always, take all of the necessary precautions with this product as you would with any poison.
I went by work for about 4 hours on Tuesday. It was kind of surreal - like I was in a movie. It was great to see everyone and catch up on the new people hired and other details I have missed. You don't realize how much you miss your work friends until you've been gone for months - and the humor/laughter is still there.
Tomorrow is my appt. with my Oncologist. We hope he will be ready to get the chemo going soon - the sooner we start the sooner it will be over. I not looking forward to it, just getting through it. But God is in control and I will hold His hand through it all. I have been feeling good, with the occasional bump in the road, but definitely better than a few weeks ago. I still have not gained much weight back - 157 lbs and holding. But I am eating regularly and as much as I can tolerate.
I went to church tonight and sat in on the royal Rangers meeting - I did not participate in the activities part since some of these guys could knock me down - they are getting so big. It's great to watch not only my son growing up, but also many of our friend's sons which are in the class. Time passes so fast.
I hope everyone is having a great week. Keep looking up and be a blessing.
