Another weird day, not quite as weird as yesterday, but weird.
Wife is doing a very little bit better. She spent a few hours in the late afternoon with the Beloved Great Niece next door, the few hours between mom going to work and dad getting home. Short time, but they both enjoyed it. And it about wore her out. We ate a bit and I just got done putting lidocaine on the sore spots on her foot and ankle, the areas that underwent surgery more than 11 months ago. Still has not fully healed. Soft tissue recovery is always an issue, and the surgery not only involved break and re-set of some bones in the foot, but substantial amounts of soft tissue rearrangement. She doesn't heal well under the best of circumstances, and right now can't be described as "best".
We're in the last full week of August. It's technically still summer. But things will be changing, and soon, and for the worse. Much worse. I would not be surprised to see SNOW here two months from now. That would be late October. Yes, it's that soon. As a kid, I can remember trick-or-treating in snow. Can happen again. Some predictions are for a very cold, bitter, snowy, very cold, nasty winter. Beginning soon. Too soon. And lasting a long time. Very long. I hate winter. Didn't mind it TOO much when in Lower Alabama. Wasn't too awful in west central Arkansas. Got a bit too exciting some times in East Tennessee, we were in the mountains after all. North East Ohio, in the Snow Belt, and not that far from the Great Lakes (implying the Canadian border).
And in just over two weeks, Lord willing, we will celebrate our 28th wedding anniversary. She has been such a blessing to me, and to many others as well. The Lord put us together when neither of us was looking. He knew better.
I have a meeting early tomorrow afternoon with the pastor of the church we've been attending. I have not officially moved my "letter" of membership, but it's probably time. I was asked to conduct the adult Bible study last Sunday, and plans are for me to do likewise this coming Sunday.
The Old Testament passage here is verses 105-176 of Psalm 119
