“‘Tis but the work of a moment. There we go. Almost finished.” Love Actually (2003) May I take a moment and brag on my amazing husband? Is that allowed? Last night he finished the guinea house (minus a quick coat of paint on the wood which frames the wire) after a long day at work!
Josh working on the roof (picture taken Monday).
Painted and roofing finished (picture taken Tuesday a.m.)!
One coat of paint shy of completion… guinea fowl moved in (picture taken this a.m.).
Notice their awesome perch made from a vine found in the front yard!
Five of our six guinea fowl chillin’ on their nesting box this morning.
He also did all of this without any help from yours truly because I am currently about as useful as a meteor shower. My right eye has a dreadful infection and ulceration. Yesterday I could scarcely breathe without experiencing excruciating pain. My doctor gave strict orders about rest, eye drops every hour, etc. This resulted in the cancellation of my much-anticipated trip to the Atlanta Trade Show. I am so disappointed! I would like to add that my wonderful boss could not have been more kind or more understanding.
Another note about kindness: when the chips are down, you find yourself ill or poor, or perhaps when you are not the most terrific person to be around…. that is when you find your true friends. True friends help you when you are at the bottom of the pit looking up. Tuesday, my friends really came through. First, they lent me clothing for the trade show (thank you, Amanda and Connie) and then took me to the doctor’s office (thank you, Connie). Finally, they called to check on me and managed to hang in there while I complained about pain and discomfort (thank you, Connie, Amanda, Aunt Julie, and Erin). What would I be without the love and support of such altruistic individuals?
I am off to rest and add more eye drops but couldn’t help but post about the blessings of my husband, friendships, and the Christian company which employs me.
