I believe it was the Scottish poet Robert Burns who wrote, ‘The best laid plans of mice and men sometimes often go astray.’ And I can prove he’s right. I will admit I somewhat changed Mr. Burns’ line a wee, from sometimes to sometimes often.
And indeed, Monday was another day that didn’t go as planned day. I knew the electricity was supposed to be off from 8:00 till 3:00 yesterday but I forgot until it was too late to put my post up. It was just short of 8:00 when I flung myself out of bed to check for water, and no time for any computer work. That didn’t go as planned. The rest of the day was almost nice, however. Even without running a television or radio, there are quite a few house noises that go with electricity. The refrigerator, water pump, humidifier/ dehumidifier, computer, a fan here an unidentified noise there.
So, it was quiet and I almost finished an embroidery project. If the electricity is off today (Tuesday) I will definitely finish that project and maybe address the quilt in the frame.
I try to have at least the majority of the next day’s post written the day before, but that doesn’t always happen. Then there are days like today (Tuesday) that I would have had the post up before eight, but this website didn’t want to co-operate so I’m just getting to the finishing touches and whatnot. The electric people must have worked a bit overtime yesterday—it was well after 3:00 before the electric came back on, but today it was about noon when it came back on instead of the 3:00 it was supposed to be today. For that I’m thankful. I’m almost finished with my embroidery project and that is nice. The quilt will have to wait, but what’s another few days. The baby is was started for is fourteen now. (I can kind of laugh except…that’s another story.)
6) “And in this mountain shall the LORD of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined.
7) And he will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all people, and the vail that is spread over all nations.
8) He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken it.
