Not quite the day I anticipated

It rained today. I lay in bed this morning listening to it and grinned. Strike "water the allotment" off the list. That was the good part.

Heather has posted today and the news is not what anyone wanted to read. BUT miracles happen and I am a firm believer in them. This story is not over yet.

I have worked all afternoon. For school. This was not in the plans either. Plans do not suit me. I should just expect the unexpected. I had visitors today, and while I was showing them around the garden, I realised just how much work I need to do in it, and I have not started the pots or baskets yet. Or washed the furniture, or power washed the patio. The weeds have gone crazy. Then our tour happened to go through my sewing room. Cringe. Followed by a mountaineering expedition over the newly washed but unfolded and sorted washing in a heap. I was mortified. These visitors were not expected, but very welcome. What was that I once said?? (Or twice or three times) ....... People are more important than things. Yes. Right. They are indeed. But dealing with this runaway monster cannot be avoided any longer. I am going to have to sort this house. Probably between 3 and 4 in the morning.

Ah yes - unexpected company. I know exactly how you felt. However, I am sure they were far more interested in spending time with you than looking at what was or wasn't done.
I saw the news about Heather too, and I just feel suddenly so weighted down. I know God can do miracles. That's what I'm praying for - for her and so many others.

Heidi said...

Yes, a miracle for Heather - I believe and am praying too.

Good luck getting the monster!

I also read the news about Heather. I know she has lots of people praying for her and for the miracle she needs.
I'm sure the rain made your veggies smile :)

I always say when my house is a mess, that's when unexpected company will drop in...Murphy's Law don't you know!! lol My prayers are with Heather and her family! xox

Yes, sad news, but what an upbeat attitude she has!

God waters our lawns so much better than we do - and for free!! I love it when it rains once in awhile.

My house cleaning is the lowest thing on my priority list these days - it really needs to move up!

Linds, my friend...

I find visiting my mother to be theraputic. That way I can remember what a clean house is supposed to look like!

Heather's in all our prayers.
