Today I received a bit of love. Christa is a quilter who has played with me on the Cotton Robin. In fact we are connected because she was the one who finished my amazing Cotton Robin quilt this year.
She sent me a slow cooker. It was a simple, but heartfelt gesture of incredible kindness. And it was exactly what I needed.
Tomorrow the work crew is coming to put up some dry wall boards in the garage. It is a single garage attached to the carport. In Baton Rouge we call that a Boat Port for some reason.
When we get this finished, hopefully by noon or so, we will move the few remaining pieces of furniture out of the Big House into the boat port so they can start on the dry wall in there. And we will create a small living space that will serve as kitchen/storage/slow cooker space.
The flexibility this space will give us will be enormous. It will literally triple or maybe even quadruple our living space. He says I can cover his workbench with a table cloth! LOL. That ought to be picture worthy.
He had tools like I had quilting supplies. We used to do a lot of woodwork and we had saws, routers and drills and sanders galore. All of which had motors below the water line. So to see that space cleared out and empty hurts a lot.
But.......I think it will serve us well. With a table cloth and a slow cooker we can begin to make meals that will fill us with more than just food.
Thank you Christa, you have no idea what your small gesture of love means to me right now.
Darn it, I am crying again!
