I had a feeling that I would hear a knock on the door today. The guy that has a hauling business, had his father to come up to the door and tell me that they had a trailer full of wood. They unloaded it for me, there were only a few pieces that I threw across the fence.
When my husband got home, we worked on sawing it, hauling it in the wheelbarrow to the back fence and I did all of the stacking myself. I got boards for him from the pile that was unloaded today and held them while he sawed them into lengths that would fit into the wood stove. We also moved the five foot pile of pallets back by the back fence and restacked them, then put tarps over all of the pallets of wood.
I am fixing supper of hamburgers and grilled onions as I type this. I will be going to bed soon, I am tired. That wood sure will be nice this winter and I'll have a nice warm house to be in. I thank the Lord for His many blessings.
When we moved here, we didn't know if we would be able to afford living here, but our old house was over 100 years old and not insulated. It kept us broke trying to fix it up and repair things, yet we were still too hot in the summer and cold in the winter.
We want to pass this property on to our son.

A strange thing happened since I decided to up my calories to 2,500 a day. I have stayed within the range of 1500-2000 calories like my doctor wants me too. My thoughts are that it is a form of perfectionism. I know there is nobody that is perfect except Jesus Christ. But perfectionism is an all or nothing attitude. I would log the stuff I was eating and see that I didn't have enough calories to have a snack and then I would go over the count when I ate a snack. Sometimes that would trigger a mini-binge because I have to go back to the doctor in December. I haven't lost that much weight and winter is the worst time for me because I usually manage to gain at least 10 pounds. All of that is in the back of my mind and yet I was failing to stay within the calorie range. The failure would trigger emotional eating. I could have lived without the snacks.
I am having daily pain in my left arm; that is the shoulder I injured and now I get discomfort in my abdomen on the lower left side, it is like a sore spot. I told my husband I am probably going to call for an appointment with my doctor. We are probably going to have company this weekend of a visiting preacher and his wife at our church and that involves a lot of work for me. People will come to our house to visit with them and to have a casual day of fellowship on Saturday. The chimney sweep will be here Friday and he is going to clean the wood stove and chimney and has a connector pipe to replace that goes through the wall to the chimney.
I was so achy today, I slept a lot in the recliner after we come from church and had lunch. It was windy and chilly here today, lots of leaves are on the ground from the neighbor's tree and need to be raked. Our son worked on the pool. When the water level gets down to where we can unhook the motor and pump, we will put the winter cover on it.
My husband has a stack of pallets about five feet high to move, so the chimney sweep can get to the clean out door for the chimney. He didn't do it today although our son was off work and would have been here to help him carry and restack the pallets. I am thinking once I am seen by the doctor that I am going to have to have tests of some sort. I don't really want to be doing a lot of lifting since I have done something to my left arm.
Oh well, nobody can eat until the cook says the food is ready. What gets done will have to be enough. I hate it when you visit someone and they make you feel uncomfortable because they are worried about everything else but enjoying your visit. We have known this couple for 30 years, so I am looking forward to having a good time.

I cleaned out the upright freezer this evening. I put the frozen stuff into coolers, unplugged the freezer, and used a hand-held steamer on it wiping with a soft white cloth or paper towel where stuff had accumated on the bottom. I was glad the chore went so quickly.
