Spruce-up rudely interrupted

June 15, 2017 The old homestead got a bath (pressure-wash) a couple of days ago, and soon afterward, got its trim painted. I wanted to go for the whole 9 yards but my workman's surgery got moved up a week and he had to go to the hospital for it yesterday. It wasn't major surgery and I think he may have stayed in the hospital only one night, but he isn't supposed to do anything strenuous, e.g. don't lift over 5lbs (2.2kg), for 60–90 days. That brings us to October, when the rains begin here. Long story short, the old homestead will have to forgo its paint job this year. My worker in the meantime should heal up nicely and be ready for the next go-round when Spring arrives.

Love the quote! Years ago I asked the Universe to give me Patience. Little did I know I was asking for a lifetime of opportunities to practice it until I learned how to actually have it. Even now, I still get opportunities to practice. I'm actually okay with waiting. Usually if my plan doesn't work out, something much better will come along. I'm waiting with bated breath to see what the Universe has to dish up this time.

Thanks for the good luck wishes. By the time the doc releases him, it's gonna be too rainy for painting, so I'm pretty much resigned to it getting done next year. But the place looks really good after just the little that's been done so far. He did a good job. I hope he gets well without any complications. The doc told him 60–90 days of light duty. We'll see if he messes up. If he doesn't follow the doc's instructions... let's just say, it won't be good. Fingers crossed.
