This week we cut the holes out for the sink and the stove in the kitchen of the mini-house (guest house). It looks a lot better with them in place. We also installed some more of the upper cabinets.
On Tuesday I saw an Ear,Nose and Throat doctor about my sinuses. I have had trouble with them for years. I have a prescription that may not even start to make them feel better for a month. We will see.
Early Wednesday morning, while it was still dark, I could see emergency flashing lights in the road behind my house. I walked to the back yard and the road was blocked both ways with firetrucks, ambulances, and lots of police cars. There were news choppers overhead, too. A dark colored truck was in the ditch, a damaged police car and a damaged F250 in the road. I got dressed, and the phone rang. It was Roy, my helper, telling me that was his friend, Ronald, who had been in the dark colored truck. He was coming to pick up Roy so that they could go down to our boat ramp and do a little fishing before work. Because a police car was involved there was a very thorough investigation with surveyors and camera, so it was quite a while before we were allowed to pick up all the fishing tackle, ice chests, folding chairs and other items that had bounced out of Ronald's truck. The policeman had facial lacerations and was released from the hospital. Ronald has two broken legs, both kidneys and his spleen lacerated, and all his ribs broken. It was mid-morning by the time we got that done and Jody was too shaken by it all, so we didn't work that day.
Here is what it said on Montgomery Country Police Reporter.
Thursday and Friday we got a bit more work done around here, and then I took Roy and his other fishing buddy to see Ronald in CCU. He was conscious, and seemed to be in OK spirits, only hurting a lot. But at the same time, my friend from church, Ann, was in ICU, and she wasn't conscious. She had been taken to the hospital the night before because she suddenly came down with a lot of seizures, so they were keeping her sedated. Please keep these two in your prayers. Thank you.
Every day we should be thankful for our health and strength. I know I am.
I have a lot of chicken in my freezer, but I am just not crazy about chicken because I was forced to eat it when I was young. I don't buy it, it is given to me, so I often make it into dishes for the church potluck. This time I made Chicken Breasts with Farro and Veggies. I also took some Sweet Multi-grain Mountain Rolls, they are always well received, as they are so soft and easy to eat. I arrived early so that I could help the pastor's wife as her knee is still hurting.
The Bible readings were Lev. 19:1-20:27, Eze. 20:2-26 and Matt. 5:38-48. and the Teaching was about the Temptations and Tests In The Life of A Believer.
I was supposed to stop and get a few things from the hardware store on the way home, but the van had finally cooled down, and there was no way that I wanted to park it again on such a warm day.
