  1. Hello, welcome to my day. I just returned from a dinner with friends who live on this block. I ate at the same home last week. I thought this week about what would have made the evening better for me. So I went with a question and the hosts were gracious and allowed me to ask it. I asked what brought them here. What in their lives had God used to bring them to this remote place. Wonderful to hear the stories.

  2. Morning! Nothing too exciting happening around here although the sky is blue, the sun has risen and there are many clumps of snow falling from the pines! We had more snow last night. I enjoyed sitting in my chair gazing out the window as the snow came in. There were two doves sitting on the branch of the tree just outside my window. I watched as the snow covered their feathers…it truly was a beautiful to watch them as they snuggled together during the storm…there must be a lesson in that somewhere 🕊 ❄️

  3. Mumsee, I know it seems strange, but It is the most difficult thing to sit and watch people cut your grass and other things you have been doing for yourself for 90 years.
    Doing nothing is the most difficult thing I have had to do on a constant basis.

  4. We have several inches of snow, too, and it is falling at a good pace. It is much prettier than the pre-spring grays, browns and faded looking pine greens.

    Chas, you may have good and exciting things to enjoy that the children, grandchildren or great grandchildren will have happen. Who knows what is on the horizon for us? That is both scary and hopeful at the same time.

  5. Correction: Second most difficult.
    The most difficult thing is walking into the family room and seeing an empty chair she occupied for years.
    But I am blessed in that I was able to care for her. I did not want her to have to go to assisted living.

  6. So in my exciting whirlwind real estate life….I was able to find a young couple an adorable house It is a 1948 house in a small town that has been remodeled and updated. They had looked and looked with one of my agents but needing to use an FHA loan they missed out on everything they could afford because at that price point investors are swooping in with cash. I took them north of Pensacola into a small town and was able to get their offer accepted. Look at it! I would live there is I were starting out.

  7. Chas, as you well know, grief comes in waves. And without things to occupy you, it can seem overwhelming. Walks are good. Visiting with others is good. A little TV. Cleaning your kitchen. You have things to do, just not the things to do that you did when you were a young whipper snapper at say, eighty four years.

  8. It has long been my dream to live in one of those little 1940’s era houses. My elderly childhood friend lived in one, and I loved it there, it was beside a creek that ran through the village. To this day, when I drive through that village, I will slow down to see if I can catch a glimpse of the house and creek.

  9. Oh my word what a sweet place Kim! ♥️ My parents purchased a little bungalow when I was 7…Mom still lives there. Dad “modified” much of it and it lost it’s 1954 charm sadly…but the five of us were blessed in that home…even if Dad did have to fight for the one bathroom he shared with four girls!

  10. Cute house. One set of my grandparents had the most beautiful Arts and Crafts style home complete with a dumbwaiter. My younger brother bought it and kept it in style. I was sorry when he sold it. I think it is my favorite style of house, although I am quite eclectic in my taste.

    Yes, it is a fortune more than when we started out, but so are wages. Actually home prices are unreal these days, IMO.

    So nice you could help them out, Kim.

  13. I got up at 6 and made coffee and prepared to grocery shop at 7. I had passed on shopping yesterday in the early afternoon since the lot had been packed. It was great at 7 with no one much there except me and the store employees stocking shelves. Almost everyone said hello. I got home and cooked eggs while Art brought in the groceries. He left for work and I went to prayer walk. I stayed on the church property and prayer walked where the Easter outreach event will be held. The other two ladies walked the neighborhood by the church. They are in great shape, and I did not want to slow their pace so it worked well for me to do what I did. And it was my first time to really be out on the property since it has been enhanced by those who rent the main sanctuary. I did get into a soggy area which I hope will dry out for the event. I am sure it was left from that storm.

  14. House prices, yes. Our Boise house, not much bigger than the one shown with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths is fast approaching half a million and has more than doubled since we bought it what? Three years ago? I told husband we should sell before prices plummet but that would defeat the purpose of buying next to daughter for our old age and to help with her children. But that would be giving up paradise and moving into a smaller house than our three remaining children with their challenges could fit.

  16. C.S. Lewis was ahead of the curve.

    “How C.S. Lewis Predicted the Woke Nightmare”

    ““We now have an intelligentsia which, though very small, is very useful to the cause of Hell.” -C.S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters

    A masterful piece of religious prose disguised as satire, C.S. Lewis’s The Screwtape Letters is a series of messages from senior devil Screwtape to his protégé Wormwood on how best to corrupt mortals. Originally released during World War II, its tight 175 pages provide charming, timeless wisdom.

    In an addendum released shortly before the author’s death in 1963 – Screwtape Proposes a Toast – Lewis pivots from dispensing universal wisdom to directly criticizing social trends of his day, trends which have gone from mere whispers on college campuses 60 years ago to become orthodoxy with the power of law today. Reading it today, it feels like the author was more prophet than professor.

    In the 15-page essay – full text available here – the devil Screwtape outlines how the term democracy can be warped into destroying excellence, first in the halls of education then to society at large to make sure everyone stays “equal.”

    “Democracy is the word with which you must lead them by the nose,” Screwtape tells his fellow devils. “The basic principle of the new education is to be that dunces and idlers must not be made to feel inferior to intelligent and industrious pupils. That would be ‘undemocratic.’”

    Screwtape espouses the “significant benefits” of “ungrading” decades before Brown University ever led this race to the bottom, saying:

    “At universities, examinations must be framed so that nearly all the students get good marks. Entrance examinations must be framed so that all, or nearly all, citizens can go to universities, whether they have any power (or wish) to profit by higher education or not.”

    Easy to see echoes of Screwtape in the demands of progressive demagogues, like when Bernie Sanders insisted that everyone should go to college so we have “the best-educated workforce in the world” – willfully ignoring that an education void of rigor has no value at all. Screwtape all but uses the word “triggered!” to describe children in self-esteem first, outcomes last schools.

    “Children who are fit to proceed to a higher class may be artificially kept back, because the others would get a trauma — Beelzebub, what a useful word! — by being left behind.”

  17. Peter, Canadian real estate, especially in southern Ontario and the West Coast of British Columbia is in uncontrollable inflation. A normal house in Toronto will go for at least a million. Even rent is astronomical, where we live there is a lot of low income people, but rent for a two bedroom apartment is over $2000 a month. It is overseas investment which is driving the market so high, and we all know what overseas investment ended up doing to the US housing market before 2009.

  18. 1:43 – Nothing new under the sun, eh?

    What a cute cottage! And that’s a clean slate for landscaping, it will be adorable with bright, blooming flowers all around it. A little small at 900+ square feet, but the 1947 home I (mostly) grew up in was smaller than that at 700+ square feet.

    Love the Arts and Crafts homes, along with the old Spanish styles prevalent out here from 100+ years ago.

    Chas, I had you pegged as a new-house kind of guy 🙂 Probably because fixing things would have fallen to you. So there are advantages.

    But there’s nothing like the charm of a historic home, with the classier architecture and often beautiful, original woodwork still intact on the interiors. And old homes can always be outfitted with forced air and heat easily enough if you have the money.

    I didn’t get to sleep until about 2 this morning so slept late — today I need to go try out & order that new mattress for the weird-size antique bed.

  19. Almost my bedtime last night, mumsee — I was up texting with an old college friend

    So tell us about these walks, Chas. Do you see anyone to say hi to or are the streets not very busy?

    When I lived “at home,” my mom and I would walk the dogs (whatever the current generation of dogs we happened to be on, we went through a couple iterations) at night and we’d always survey the neighborhood houses, gardens, who was making changes, whether there was a nice new fence at this house or a new paint job at another.

    I’ve been in this neighborhood long enough that I’ve had good neighborly acquaintances (and some who became friends) come and go. When I walk by homes where people I knew used to live, I always think about them, recalling some memories.

    One man on the corner recently died of Covid so whenever I pass by there I look to make sure the lights are on and pray for his wife. I’d messaged her a couple weeks ago but have only talked in person to her once, several months ago when she was on her porch as I was walking by with the dogs. So I didn’t know her as well as her husband who was something of a guardian for the neighborhood, always watching for lost or stray dogs (he posted a FB photo of Cowboy once when he’d gotten out, giving me a much needed heads-up alert so I could get home quickly and corral him).

    Walking is a good opportunity, though, to pray for neighbors, even those we don’t really know. I don’t always do that, but walking makes me feel much more connected to my neighbors beyond who’s on my immediate right or left.

    And, trained by those early walks with my mom, I also survey the houses, who’s doing what to their property, what’s been put up for sale, what’s been sold with new people moving in. We have a nice mix in our neighborhood, older folks, younger and mid-life families, kids. The teens who were so annoying with their loud razor scooters going back and forth, endlessly on Sundays some years back have apparently grown up and left (somewhat to my relief, I’ll admit!).

    I have fond memories of Mildred, the retired LA city librarian who loved dogs and used to wait out on her front porch when I’d go by with my pups in earlier days when I’d walk in the mornings before going to work. She’s been gone a long time now, there are new people now renting her cute craftsman house.

    The craftsman house next door belonged to an “international attorney” or so we were always told; he had wolf-dog hybrids and the house was almost completely obscured by overgrown brush. He was seldom home, I don’t think I ever saw him.

    He died not long ago, though, and the house has been cleared of all the overgrowth and is as charming as can be. Seriously, it’s first time I’ve ever actually seen it. It was for sale, I’m guessing it’s been bought now (but I don’t walk that way lately due to our changing habits with my knee and the dogs getting older and needing shorter, more level terrain walks now).

  20. Donna, lots of people walk this street. I live in an a “cul-de-sac” area. It is a large neighborhood, but there is only one way in/out. So we are all neighbors. Though it is not a neighborly situation. Everyone is either coming or going. Not “rambling”.

    I know the people across the street. That’s all. They go to our church. My next door neighbors, I don’t know. The only time they go out is to get into their car.

  21. I still hope to know my new neighbors better. They frequently let their dogs out without being on leash, I assume for bathroom breaks. That has not made me overly desirous of being around when they are loose because I do not know what to expect from the dogs. I don’t think they would bite, but they might bark and stir up the neighborhood. I don’t mind that they let their dogs out like that. We do have leash laws so technically they should be on leashes. I don’t think I have seen any other dogs let out like that around here. They seem to stay in their yard. I do not recall seeing them walk the dogs. I could have missed seeing them do that.

  22. My parents used to know all their neighbours, but after over four decades, the neighbours have changed several times. There are four inhabited houses near my parents’ house, with a fifth that has been empty as long as I can remember. My parents’ house is also opposite a farmer’s field, and on one side, just one house away from another farmer’s field. We are on fairly good terms with the neighbours on either side – the drug dealers who used to live on the one side and terrorize the neighborhood with wild parties and vicious pitbulls have long been gone – and deliver baked goods at Christmas to them. The two at the corner we do not know at all. There are four other houses further along the road, separated from this cluster by fields, forest and a hill, once again, we once knew the inhabitants, but now just have a slight acquaintance with two. My parents have now been the longest inhabitants, and the old family farmers in the wider area, who have lived multiple generations on the land sometimes refer to the nearest intersection to us by our surname. For all my parents live a very quiet life, they are well known and have respect in the community. We were somewhat electrified to learn that an elderly member of an old farming family in another community about 20-30 minutes drive away knew all about my upcoming operation, from her careworkers, who attends the church we attended in childhood. We are still not quite certain how this caregiver got the story, but the rural community is full of eyes, ears, and mouths.

  24. A question regarding phones: When calling a landline, if the number has been disconnected, there is a message informing the caller of this. With smart phones, if you send a text to a phone number that has been changed (thus no longer in service) or if the other person has blocked your number, do you get a message back? Or does it seem as if your text went through even if it didn’t?

  27. DJ – Yeah. It occurred to me that at some point, she may be advised to block my number or she may get a new phone number. That had me wondering if I could at some point be texting her without knowing that she wouldn’t even see the texts. (In the case of Carol’s phone, even though it was turned off, she could have eventually seen the texts if she turned it back on.)

    That is mere supposition, however. I don’t think that sort of thing has happened, but wonder if it may at some point. (And if it did, it would be from YA or her sister pushing her to do it.)

    I finally met the new neighbors. Well, the mom and two children, that is. She was picking up her daughter (whose birthday it happened to be) at the end of her long driveway. She had her toddler with her. It was nice to be able to at least say, “Hi.” They live across the field which is owned by another farmer, who has land around us, but does not live right here.

    People have started coming back to church.
    Because everyone is supposed to be separated from others, we meet in the gym. That is so chairs can be spread out.

    Everyone comes to church in the gym. Sits separated from each other during church.
    When church is over, they gather together to chat.

  32. We’re meeting in our regular space but have 2 morning services so maybe a little over 1/2 at our early service. People sit a couple chairs apart (which actually is helpful for having a place to put your Bible and other things). I sit in my regular area next to the folks I used to sit next to, maybe 2-3 chairs separating us.

    And remember, with a fair number of people now vaccinated, the reticence is understandably lifting (see AJ’s video). By mid-April our vaccines will be open to people of all ages in California. So yeah, we chat a little after the service and we’re sitting close “enough” to easily and naturally chat before the service also.

    We’re not out of the woods yet, I was reading last night about the new variant in Brazil that’s deeply concerning. People who have no underlying conditions and are younger are succumbing, getting seriously ill and dying with that variant in unnerving numbers.

    In CA right now, numbers remain low. We hope it stays the way, but no guarantees. Viruses will be viruses.

    Our sermon today is on Jude in our book-by-book survey of the Bible. We’ll have an Easter message next week, then one survey sermon on Revelation wrapping up the 66-book overview before going more deeply into that book.

    As much as I appreciated the virtual church provision — and I was “there” every Sunday morning — being “back” in person is uplifting.

  35. We had a wonderful service with the pastor going through all of the events leading up to Easter. We took communion as he spoke on the part about the Last Supper. A few of us were home on virtual. I had tears as I took communion which I know that some here will discount as invalid since I was not in person. It had great meaning to me. I think many were in attendance at church based on what the worship leader said about seeing people he had not seen in a long time. At the beginning of the service a text had been received by the pastor asking for prayer for a member’s sister’s granddaughter who had been shot in the head and is in critical condition. This is a black family so we may hear about this on the news. Our pastor at another time spoke about crime in Atlanta and said we may be murder capital of the world. I had not heard that before. I will be looking that up to see.

  37. Chas, in time, you might consider some furniture rearranging to re-locate that chair so it’s not front-and-center in the room. Or, unless it’s a chair you especially like and feel strongly about keeping, maybe even treating yourself to a nice, new recliner to replace it? But I know it’s not “the chair,” the grief and emptiness are deeper than that, the chair is just a physical reminder right now.

  39. Sermon today was from Mark’s account of Jesus walking on Galilee through the storm. Two points were made that I had not previously considered. One, that in the OT, only God is depicted in poetic imagery as walking on water, so Jesus doing so was a declaration that he was God. Two, Mark says Jesus was about to pass the boat where the disciples by, and the pastor drew a comparison to Moses being showed the glory of God, in which it is said God passed by Moses.

  41. This morning, after texting with Nightingale (at work) about today’s plans for Boy, I happened to notice a difference between some texts that I’ve sent her and texts I’ve sent Chickadee. At the bottom of each text is smaller type with the time a text was sent, along with something else.

    On the texts I’ve sent to Nightingale, they say “Read”. But the ones I’ve sent to Chickadee say “Delivered”. For a little while, I was upset, thinking that that meant that Chickadee had not seen them. But I decided to look back at previous texts that she had replied to, and those also said “Delivered”. I think the difference is that Nightingale and I are on the same phone plan.

    I also noticed that some of my texts to either daughter appeared in a lighter color, and instead of either “Read” or “Delivered”, said “SMS” (for “Short Message Service”) or “MMS” (for Multimedia Messaging Service, usually when I sent a photo). I wondered why some were different than usual. Does anyone here know about that?

    This afternoon, I sent my weekly text to Chickadee, asking her if she would be joining us for Easter, or perhaps would prefer getting together on Saturday instead. Now let’s see if she will reply.

    (And if this all turns out to merely be that her phone is not working, and she doesn’t realize how much time has elapsed since I last heard from her, please pray that the Holy Spirit will remind her to contact her poor mama and tell her what’s going on. I would love for this to be the answer to what is going on, but fear that it is not.)

  42. Chas – I understand the sharp pang in the heart at seeing certain things that particularly remind us of our beloved. Moving or changing things at this early point may end up being more painful than leaving them the way they are, at least for now.

    Also, the law allows for longer hours at polling places, and Saturday voting as well, so people won’t have to go when the lines would be longer.

    https://thehill.com/homenews/state-watch/545120-georgia-law-makes-it-a-crime-to-give-water-to-people-waiting-to-vote

    ____________________

    … The law, SB 202, states that “[n]o person shall solicit votes in any manner or by any means or method, nor shall any person distribute or display any campaign material, nor shall any person give, offer to give, or participate in the giving of any money or gifts, including, but not limited to, food and drink, to an elector … on any day in which ballots are being cast.”

    GOP lawmakers who have supported the measure say the provision on food and water was included in an effort to prevent the solicitation of votes and electioneering, or influencing voters.

    The law states that poll workers under the law could still bring water from a fountain, or bottles of water, to people in line. …

    Nor does the law let poll workers “bring water from a fountain, or bottles of water, to people in line”, as claimed in the Hill article DJ quoted. They can make water accessible, but they can’t bring it to you.

    This Code section shall not be construed to prohibit a poll officer from … making available self-service water from an unattended receptacle to an elector waiting in line to vote.

  54. Now everyone else knows more about that law than I knew!🤣
    I am so over giving thought to voting. And I am not paying much attention to the news lately, except for the weather report. Ignorance is bliss in Georgia, as long as one knows the true Good News. The local news is so bad lately that one could be declared to have depression from watching the news more than a couple of times each week.
