Yesterday I went to Amazing Savior Church, of course; but when I got home, I put in a 10 hour workday dealing with the inventory issues I absolutely have to get properly sorted by the end of the month. (This is not, however, nearly as bad as the 15 hour day I slogged through on Friday.) I think (hope!) that the task is 65% (maybe more) in hand. This morning I was at it again for a couple of hours, sitting at my desk in my jammies, until I decided to take a shower.
My tenant has family visiting so :::::sigh::::: the water pressure went down while I was still in the shower. No point complaining. Having a well with low pressure is just something we have to live with out here in the County since we don't have access to city water. At least I managed to get the shampoo out of my hair. But it was after I got my head out from under the shower nozzle that I heard it: machinery. Great, just great. Probably someone mowing the yard.....but since we're currently dealing with deciding just exactly who is gonna mow this summer, I dreaded looking out the window to see what was going on and precisely which mower was out there making a racket.
The noise got louder and louder and louder.....It was not a mower. I threw on jeans and a tee so I could rush out the door with my dripping wet hair and there it was: a great big electric company vehicle butchering the trees in my yard. There is nothing I can say, nothing I can do--even though they have removed all of the branches from one side only of a 40 foot tall pine. Right of way must be cleared.
The good news is that he didn't touch the very overgrown blueberry grove. I want those berries for food! Especially so since the fire my neighbor caused destroyed the wild berries.
Certainly this is not the view I wanted to see from my untidy porch this morning.
I purely do NOT like this. And it is NOT the way I want to start the day. But grumbling won't solve anything. And it won't get the inventory completed.
A very large mug of tea and a moment of prayer, however, can be substantial helps.
I'm gonna go back to work. God is in charge. I don't have to worry. It's all gonna be okay; and even if it isn't okay, I'll still be able to handle it.
