Coming up for air

Grin, some little girl made the cone into a wild flower vase, #DogWalk at Mukilteo

Well that was bad. Sinus infection on the right side of my face that was so painful I couldn’t function for a week. Then I felt better on Wednesday (today is Friday)… for about 23 minutes before the sinus’ on the left started to swell. My mouth is raw from mega doses of vitamin C. I woke up this morning at 1 AM and realized that I feel fantastic! Hallelujah!

Since I couldn’t get back to sleep I posted the Ephesians Bible study that I was working on before the head crush came. It is full of typo’s that I need to edit but it is up. If you like, you can click here: Ephesians 1:1-2

Stress, why can’t I just talk myself out of it? I remembered to pray for my former supervisor. He is prone to crones disease when he is stressed. I was very worried about him and prayed often for his health. But honestly, I thought I was OK, that this was going to be good for me (not working for the school anymore). But I had a difficult time just letting it rest. I felt so ashamed. That was wrong but it was there.

The Almighty had given me direction last spring. Put in your notice. But not wanting the school to be burdened with the need to find more teachers who will work full time for $800 a month (we are a ministry not a business… at least we keep telling ourselves that, and watch as God supplies our every need) I chalked up my notion to put in my notice to end of school exhaustion. Maybe I could have saved myself and my supervisor a whole load of misery if I had listened to that still, small voice instead of being a team player… and seriously, no one at school thought I was a team player. Lesson learned. I’m finally getting a tiny spark of feeling good about tomorrow. It’s time to get back to work, my work, my life

The Decision Has Been Made

Changes are coming to The Toy Box.

It will be a slow transition, but it is coming. We are fixen to sell our urban farm and hit the road. Being an American Gypsy has always been a dream, now we have decided to do it. We have two years to make the transition. There are moments that I am completely overwhelmed. There are times when I am dancing for joy.

Today, just walking the dogs seems precious. I will not walk this walk through the seasons again… once we go.

787 days from today, April 19, 2017 To Launch Day, June 15, 2019

2 more years of school, 2 more gardens… unless something changes.
