In an effort to finish getting rent paid, I worked up a couple of bears with some yarn that had been donated to me. I know I have some outstanding orders, but I still need to have funds coming in to pay off my monthly bills, plus my tax bill. But, don’t worry. As long as I’m knitting, we’ll survive another month. And as long as we survive another month, everyone’s bears will get to them in time. I’m sorry I’m late with some of them, but my energy level isn’t what it once was. (Hence why I’m trying to push my written stuff as much as possible). But, I’m still working hard on this end.
I’m sorry I’m not as eloquent as I usually am with this blog. I’m a little tired today. I stayed up waiting for Phillip to come home from work so I could spend some time with him, but I still ended up waking at my usual time.
So, my brain is a little off today. And a little stressed. But, somehow stress has become a constant in our lives. But, it does not drain us too much. We keep our heads high, knowing this situation of ours isn’t forever, just for now. One day we will have our little one room house in the quiet of the country, feed off the land.
As a matter of fact, I should show you some pictures I took of Phillip’s garden. See, in order to save money, we’ve been growing some of our own food in the strip of grass next to our apartment building. He grew the garden in pickle buckets Phillip snagged from work, for we didn’t want to harm the property, and so they could be moved if someone objected.
The other day, I grabbed a few of those tomatoes and made a homemade chunky marinara complete with fresh basil. All grown for free. Well, the seeds were bought at the dollar store, 4 packs for a dollar, which is pretty close to free.
So, yes, we do look forward to when we’re no longer financially strapped, resting in the tall grass of a quiet place away from the aggression of mankind that we’re just not fond of. But, this is where we are now, this is our current situation and we make the most of it by staying optimistic and enjoying our hopes for the future not as if a dream, but as a solid plan.
We see a lot of hope in our future in that little garden.
