 My diet has been fairly restricted lately and most days one of my meals has been some combination of brown rice with vegetables and chicken breast.

 Having space to stretch out a long table is a plus on holidays.

I have an appointment with a new specialist coming up next week. The doctors haven't been able to figure out what is causing the constant pain I've been experiencing since late January. I'm praying that they'll find the problem and know how to fix it.

In progress

Crazy weather

 The weather on Friday was crazy. One minute I looked out of my office window and someone had just shaken a snow globe. The next time I looked, the sky was bright blue and the sun was shining. Then a few minutes later, the snow was pelting down nearly causing a blizzard white-out. Crazy.

One plus of not putting the laundry away is that you can use it for photographic subjects.

Sticky notes

I'm so thankful that I've been able to work most days this week. I still have a lot of pain, but I've been able to function a little more.

Dirty steps

Making improvements often means that things get dirty.

We've started a new project at the Cookie House. So far it's in the destruction stage.

 I've missed the view from my office window and have been very happy that (with my heating pad and extra pain medicine) I've been able to make it to work for a few hours the last couple of days.

Tuesday was a discouraging day. Despite my best efforts, I felt myself slipping into a dark pit.

I've been following a daily Bible reading plan this year. Wednesday morning the first passage was from Psalm 27, where verse 11 reads:

I would have lost heart,
unless I had believed
That I would see the goodness of the Lord
in the land of the living.

The next passage was from 2 Samuel 22. Here is verse 7.

In my distress I called upon the Lord,
And cried out to my God;
He heard my voice from His temple,
And my cry entered His ears.

This was followed by Psalm 91. Verse 15 says:

He shall call upon Me,
and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will deliver him and honor him.
With long life I will satisfy him,
And show him My salvation.

By the time I finished reading, I no longer needed to struggle to keep from sinking into the pit. I had been lifted out.

For health reasons I've been on an (almost) no fat diet. So, I was pleased when my pancakes, made with non-fat yogurt and no butter, oil or milk, were relatively tasty.

There are some days when the best you can do is look back at the good days you've had and look forward to the good days you will have while you wait for the day you're having to pass,
