SHAKY FRIDAY

An early wake up call was a blessing this morning as I went into my sunroom to let the dogs out I discovered  the Eden Pure heater I run at night in there to keep my plants alive was shut off. I tried to start it a couple times with no luck. The lights would just come on and quickly fade away, shucks, I haven't even had this thing a year yet !! When all else fails I looked in the owners manual and decided to check the filter. It looked fine, so I plugged the heater back in and tried starting it again. It started right up just like normal, now what could have made it shut off ????  I let it run until it warmed the room back up from 43 when I discovered it wasn't working to 58 in about an hour. I turned it off and when it cooled I washed the filter out like it said to do just in case I couldn't see the dust in it !!!
All this happened before chores and breakfast so when I left for my walk it was 10:30. It is a sunny warming up fast day as I was wishing I could shed my cover alls by the time I got back to the house.
As I walked along the creek I noticed it was very muddy ,even more than it was after the hard rains on Monday and Tuesday. As I got farther along I discovered why.
The neighbor was putting a waterline in on his side of the creek to pump water into a pond at his house. He did this last year but can't find the line he put in then so he is doing it different this time.
I'm afraid all this digging into the bank will cause his bank to wash away when the water gets high.
My dad would never even cut a tree off the creek bank on his side for fear of cause it to wash away.
I felt like my legs were jello again when I got back to the house this morning. I ate something and felt a little better so I iced 6 caramel cakes before lunch.
Still feeling kind of weak I went to work at church and slowly got the work done there. I feel like I am spitting into the wind on these Fridays before the Saturday when the contemporary church has it's youth rally in the sanctuary. I hope they don't take down our Christmas decorations. I also hope they put a picture of our church back on the wall where they have hung a big poster before Sunday when the members of our congregation get there.
Home to work some on my Christmas decorations, still not getting into the mood al least I got my tree up in the living room and checked all the lights.No ornaments on it yet but at least it's up. Still trying to figure out why I can't get into the spirit  this year.
Daughter came by after work and we went over to the local community college to a Holiday Market they were having this evening. It was a big disappointment as there were few exibitors and some were selling commercial stuff.
Years ago I sold my crafts out here each Christmas at a craft show they had but it was sure different from the one we went to today. The one they used to have lasted until 9:00 and other Chrsitmas festivities were also offered as well as a room full of crafters selling their wares.
We didn't spend much time there and stopped by the estate sale place we usually go to on our way home. Daughter bought a couple things for her kitchen and I put in a bid on a large nativity set.
We made it home before dark so I did the chores and made some homemade chicken salad for supper.
Daughter left and hubbie and I both hit the recliner and couch for a much needed rest.
I still feel shaky but it is gradually getting better, I have no idea what is going on.
I iced 6 more caramel cakes and 1 coconut later tonight.
I turned the Eden Pure on and it fired right up and is running fine,hopefully it will still be on in the morning.
Grateful to God for another blessing filled day. Praying for strength in the upcoming days.
Good Night and God Bless.

IT'S NOT LIKE YOU ON HERE ON YOUR BLOG TO BE DOWN. YOU WORK SO HARD MAYBE YOU NEED TO TAKE A DEEP BREATHE AND LET THE AIR OUT SLOWLY. RELAX A LITTLE AND TAKE SOME TIME FOR YOU. THE WORK WILL BE THERE TOMORROW. JUST FEED THE ANIMALS AND THEN DO NOTHING FOR 24 HOURS. IF ANYONE ASK YOU WHAT'S WRONG JUST SAY I'M TAKING MY FIVE MINUTES. THEN LAUGH OUT LOUD. GIGGLE GIGGLE.
