9 sleeps

only 9 more sleeps till the sold house (and lovely money for said sold house) changes hands. every penny within my reach screams for mercy till then. but the deep freeze and the jelly cupboard started the season full, and the cupboards were far from bare, so granny's no leaner than before.

the sky out my window is ash-grey and moodily dripping. there's a strip of pale blue rubbing its way through along the bottom, above soggy fields of dull gold stubble. the crops were good, i hear, and the rain has held off till most of our farmers had them harvested and the work of their labors in the bins, thanking the gods of technology for their grain driers. most of the grain is too wet to store for long, so now begins the long, noisy, messy, energy consumptive job of running it through these monsters to bring the moisture content down. they look a bit like beheamouth drums from clothes driers, and work the same way. the grain is tumbled and blasted with hot air till it's dry enough that it won't catch fire or ferment in the bins.

in something over 9 sleeps i'll be able to further illuminate you with digitally stored blinks worth a thousand words.

the repetetive stress injury is healing nicely; i'm looking forward to returning to my blogsite regularly.... soon.

happy autumn to those in the north - happy spring to those down under; wishing rainy blessings to those in need of heaven's tears.

Thanks for your comment today.

Sorry about the hand but glad it's responding to treatment.

I had the beginning of that when I retired but it hasn't given me problems since even with the typing I do here. Probably my ergo keyboard helps and also not having to spend 6 hours a day "keyboarding".

granny - hope things are in recovery mode out your way; i'm sending healing vibes. (and rain vibes) thanks for the good wishes.

granny p - i've never learned how to do easy, i guess. howling, thunderous wind here today... if there was a leaf left on a tree this a.m. it's gone now. hope you're on the receiving end of some rain soon too.

Pray for blue horizons
Settings of a golden sun
Memories of life abundant
Much more is yet to come

Welcome to your new horizons
Yonder town’s life canvas beckons
Hear town’s welcome sweet song
Together united in old sing-along

What a treat this was to read! I'm glad you are doing better and how exciting that there's only 2 more days until the house deal happens. Good going ... I had visions of Granny Clampett when the read your first paragraph and 'granny's no leaner than before'.

LL - your words are a warm glow deep in my inner centre - they feel like a benediction, thanks so much. yes, much more is still to come. and i'm eagerly looking forward to it.

Kate - yes still slowly improving, thanks, i took the last 2 days off work to get the final clean-up done in the yard, etc. for the new owners. still can't quite believe it's happening. and won't i guess, till the money is in my hand.
