How exciting!!! We’re finally getting a gas generator!! Since when has anyone – and I do mean anyone – who knows me, see me get excited about a gas generator?? New clothes in my closet give me reason to live another day!! New shoes (or just the fact of buying new shoes) thrill me to death!! Even buying new stuff to get something organized around the house gives me goose bumps. But a new gas generator??? Who knew????
This is now a sign that I’ve settled in to this new old house, that I love this place and that I want it to be safe, sound and secure. A new gas generator will at least keep us from drowning, will light our way through a power outage and even keep the fridge and stove going so we can at least munch the hours away during any power outage, along with watching a little television to see how the rest of the world is coping during such hard times. That pretty much sums it up for me. One need not drown unnecessarily in water or even one’s sorrows, one needs to eat during a storm and one definitely needs to see to eat during a storm!!!! Watching the television is a bonus.
Nat’s in the throws of setting things up with our guy and we should be ready for anything Mother Nature wants to throw our way this Winter and beyond!!
As for other news, Nat’s received an update from England. Natalie has had one of four tumors removed – the largest one of which was the size of a lemon!! The other three are unreachable and will be treated by chemotherapy. She’s in good spirits – the operation was this past Tuesday – and except for feeling sick quite a bit from the chemo, she’s in a positive and up mood. That’s always a good thing!! Her husband, Nat, is also relieved that something has at least now been done and hopefully she’s on the road to recovery. We all know it will take some time, but the ball has started to roll and that’s the main thing. Waiting and worrying never does anyone any good.
With all the hubbub and todo going on, I’ve also been baking for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Getting the requisite cookies, loaves, bread and squares in the freezer so I’m ready in a pinch. Now if I can just keep Nat’s little fingers out of the freezer (he enjoys a couple cookies after his lunch) I’ll be laughing.
