I came home from church services yesterday, fully expecting to pack Dear Wife up and haul her the 14 mile trip to the ER we have to use. By that time, she'd changed her mind from what she said around 09:00 when I was leaving the house, and she decided to stay home. We shall see.
She is scheduled to "watch" the Little One today, so we' plan to be across the back yard in about 50 minutes. Yes, "we", since I'm being drafted as the official Assistant Watcher. And tomorrow as well.
We shall see.
Unseasonably warm most of this week, temperatures in the 50's, with Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday-Friday actually into the 60's!! Again, two years ago, the "highs" were barely above 0°. with night time lows like -9° or so. This is better, by far. Don't mind one bit. I was actually outside yesterday in just shirt sleeves, no hat jacket coat and gloves, no snow around or anything. Pretty nice, actually. Saturday and Sunday nights are predicted to be -- slightly -- below freezing, but that's all I see in the 10-day forecast. Now, daughter in west Arkansas will see 80° on Wednesday, our friends in East Tennessee will see highs in the mid-70's most of the week, and our recent neighbors in central Alabama in mid-70's and low 80's about all week. Yes, I hate NE Ohio winters and cold. Sorry.
Wife is still feeling awful, but we shall see what turns up. It is hard to see someone you love so much going through years of unrelenting pain and misery. We've been through quite a lot in our years together. She's tough, but it is wearing her down, which is hardly surprising.
Fortunately, her fever broke around midnight, which is great , she had one for more than a week.
The Old Testament passage is chapters 3 and 4 of Numbers. No, none of us are here by accident and the Lord has a role for each of us.
Our reading in the New Testament is verses 22-35 of chapter 3 in the Gospel of Mark.
