04.14.15 Rising waters but the culvert is still there!!!

Palindrome+WeekTuesday, April 14, 2015 ( 04/14/15 )Did you know that every day this week can be written backwards and still be the same date? Madisyn and I say “Cool Beans” about things like this!

We have had a tremendous amount of rain the last few days and it will continue for several more days.

The good news is that – Our famous culvert is still standing! Yay for Roy’s brilliant engineering and God’s loving care!

The bad news is that the water in the pond has risen to a level that several of our pine trees are in the water and the legs of our white bench are in the water. The water is about halfway up the heigh of the interior of the culvert. Not sure what will happen by the end for he week but for today it is not over the culvert!!! Here’s some pictures of the water level.

The bench was around 3 feet up on the shore. Now the left leg is in the water.

The tree farthest away, in the middle, is several feet out into the water now. It use to be well up onto the shore.

You can see the trees and bench in the water and the water halfway up the height of the culvert earlier today. It was higher later today.

I had a nice day Monday visiting with work friends, seeing my primary care doctor, a fantastic visit with my son Chip and a fun trip to the grocery scooping up on all sorts of fruit and other brain healthy foods! Absolutely exhausted after all that but very happy to have visited with friends and loved ones. Not one picture was taken the whole day, can you believe that!

Roy had a nice day to himself, though he 1654376_826105987457633_4996957998919480494_nworked on the clean water tank most of the day.

My primary care doctor is requesting all my records from my neurologist so that while we’re traveling I will know they are in better hands. I’ve removed the blog posts from this blog regarding my brain. They will be accessible soon at Some Things I Learned About Alzheimer’s which I am renaming Some Things I Learned About Dementia. That is a more appropriate place (as my sweet husband pointed out) for me to share that type of information. A link to the Dementia blog is at the end of this post.

Usually we briefly speak on the phone and when we’re together there are always others around. It was really nice to have a face to face talk with my little rug rat!

The one thing I didn’t get to do yesterday was visit with my friend, Susan Taylor who has cancer.  She was having a lot of pain and had to go to bed to deal with it.  Susan has one of the most positive spirits I’ve seen and is always helping others even while she’s dealing with cancer.  I ask that all of you pray for Susan that her pain will subside but also that God will take this cancer from her body.  If she knew you were hurting, she’d be one of the first to be praying for you, so please pray for her, often.

Today’s plan was to organize everything in all the closets and cabinets in the RV. I made about 5% progress on that before getting very side tracked taking care of paperwork, scanning and putting groceries away. Then I switched over to working on my blogs but there is still hope for the organization to be worked on in a bit or tomorrow!

The rain has stopped here and may not come back until late tomorrow so if you’re gonna get outside now is the time to do it!

Thanks for reading today!

Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!
