peeks and valleys

I found myself searching online for what options the homeless have, again. There aren’t a lot it seems unless you have a place to camp or people to go to. I know how to figure these things out as far as how to do it, but the where is so tricky. In theory, it’s doable, but facing thoughts of the winter leaves me in tears. Having a mate who won’t talk about it is the hardest part. I asked him if he had any ideas and he doesn’t. He just goes silent and wanders off and cleans something. The house needs so much work with everything broken. I guess we just keep on till whatever happens, happens. There are no jobs and aside from having a yard sale, no ideas.

So we plan our yard sale.

Craig’s list ad up. Hyundai re-listed. Friend called to listen to my fears, check . . .

I found a pkt of chilli mix in the back of the cupbard! diced 1/3 an onion, 2 stalks of celery and added the odd can of tomato sauce and kidney beans. I also had 4 meatballs in the freezer! cut those up, mix well and serve over spaghetti noodles! They sell meals like this at Steak N’Shake! lol

omg this goes a long way toward a peak tonight!

About Green Jean Granny

I believe in and practice positive living with a bit of a barb it seems. I love YARN, music, reading, history, and gemstones. I am passionate about the Earth. I am a true homebody. I've said I was Pagan for years to separate myself from a churchy upbringing and judgmental family that left me outside of its beliefs. I believe it's our responsibility to tend and protect the Earth. I basically do my thing in a (not so) quiet, amused way. I believe in the power of my own hands, the energy of combined prayer, and caring for the earth. I attend a nondenominational Christian Church. I have 6 kids, all home-born and successfully breastfed. The oldest 5 are grown. The youngest is attending Community College and living at home. I'm the oldest of 9, daughter of a missionary mother who lives in The Republic of Congo, married to the son of a preacher, with 3 spoiled dogs and and an add on (my daughter's pit bull lives here for a bit while she hikes the Appalachian Trail. Right now, there is small balance after yrs of unemployment. My disability was approved due to degenerative disc disease and fibromyalgia. I believe we owe it to ourselves to protect our mental health. It's precious and the one thing we can control. I dislike my own housework and I talk too much. I bought a house in North Carolina and after trying to get my husband here for 6 months, he had a stroke. I'm a two-time caregiver. Steve's got hemiparesis and diabetes and is learning to walk and trying to use his right side again. It's slow going. Our 10 kitties were rehomed by rescue after his stroke.
