Fridays are good days. The weekend in the Middle East is Friday & Saturday so the flow of work into my inbox is less. We woke up again to rain and it was cold, so it was an absolute blessing to stay in bed and when I did start work, it was in bed! This is the big plus for working from home! We weren’t the only ones sleeping late. Truffles even had breakfast in bed…
So glad she is sleeping in her box and not my bed at the moment. She is feeling a bit better it seems.
After I did a bit of online work, I also did a bit of housework! I cleaned the kitchen including the kitchen floor. As as soon as that was done, I put the mop across the entrance to the kitchen to remind Mike the kitchen floor was wet and I went to my ladies meeting! When I got home, I made Mike soup for lunch, we watched some golf and then Mike did the big solar test. He turned everything on to see if it works. It did! Batteries charging…
And the solar panels turn on a light…
So that was just a test. The next step is to get in the electrician to double-check Mike’s work and to give us a certificate of compliance and let the City know we have solar panels. Mike’s attempt has been very successful despite my misgivings. He now says he wants to arrange the ones for Echo when we eventually get to build.
So I mentioned Truffles is doing better. Something else to update you on is the car that the people were living in down the road from us. They are still there but I am happy to report that the car is now in action and it comes and goes. I have a feeling the woman has family living in the closest house and she is visiting. The car has a GP number plate. I think one day they will disappear as quickly as they arrived. It has been about a month already.
The other thing is I am keeping up my reading. I finished The Good Earth which I really enjoyed. I’ve started this:
I’m getting into it and am enjoying it thus far.
For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favour and honour. No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly.
These are the days.
Keep the smile going.
God bless you.
In His Grip,
