Chips and Dip

The other day we bought some chips and dip on sale.

Today, find several bags of chips and dip. Talk about manifestation. It never fails. Ever.

The heat slows down dumpster diving. Especially for meat and produce. Way too dangerous. Could get sick. Plus I have enough food to last me for quite some time. Now don’t get me wrong, we do spend money in the economy, but wisely.

Tonight we are redoing a room and making it a spare bedroom for guests and any other weary traveling friends who need to stay for a night or a month. Doesn’t matter. God has been good to me, so I’ll be good to others.

I have quite a stash of new clothes that I found a few years ago. Pants, jeans, socks, T-shirts, underwear, dishes, kitchenware, that I’ll never ever use. They are going to charity this week. Someone could use them. I need the space and someone out there needs the clothes. Just the other night a local charity received a large bag of body powder, makeup, and other personal toiletries.

It is nice in the country. We saw two turkeys the other night, a coyote running across the highway and dozens of fireflies in the evening. Many a night I will sit outside, watch the fireflies, light a candle on my front porch (keeps the bugs away) and enjoy the bright moon or the stars when it’s the dark of the moon.

What things in nature do you enjoy? What simple pleasure do you like?



  1. Sounds like beautiful country. Gonna see that someday soon. It wouldn’t let me comment on the other blog, but I’m glad your neck and back are feeling better.

  2. Shoulder problems typically come from imbalance. Too much pressing, too little pulling. One has to row as much as one presses.

    One has to keep blood flowing to it, or it just freezes up and stops moving. Permenantly.

    You’ve no doubt seen the progression. First a injury. Then a cane, a walker, then a wheelchair. Then they become bedridden, then they can’t get up at all.

  3. Great..get a sling from you Dr. so you will not use it awhile. Then you will feel better. Good luck with that. Birdwatching and animal watching are great. Any exercise is good too.

  4. Thank you Wilma. I do use a sling but it’s tough doing housework with one hand. I’ve been stretching it and babying it. The only workouts I can do right now is walking. When it’s stormy outside I do the Sansone walk at home DVD’s.

  5. Yes I have seen the progression, that is why I starting seeing a chiropractor. I’m scheduled for acupuncture next week. I’m looking forward to it. I’m respecting my physical limits, but I refuse to let my shoulder get frozen either.
