View From My Window

Friday, September 24, 2021 — It was an interesting day today, to say the least. Apparently, there’s been some trouble with the Depot camera’s functioning and so this morning I received a call from LG, asking if I could be at the Depot when the repairman showed up to work on the internet. She said the cashier at the Depot would call me when the man arrived, but that she might be able to make it herself. She said she would call if she needed me to be there. I said sure… Then, at around 1:15 P.M. I decided to make a mail run and go on down to the Depot to see if the repairman ever showed. He hadn’t, so I sat until 2:00 p.m. — the appointment slot was from 12:00 noon to 2:00 p.m. I told the cashiers that I was going to run my errands right quick and if the repairman showed, they were to call my cell phone and I would come right back.

I got 99% of my shopping done at WalMart, including more cat food (yay, Ruby!) and some fabric to make a quilt for the new great-grand-niece, Amelia. Ah… and my niece is now a grandmother!!! I grin like a Cheshire cat every time I think about it. But I digress. Here’s the fabric:

Quilt fabric for Amelia’s quilt

I haven’t decided on a pattern just yet, but it will probably be like a 9 patch or something similar–something that I can put together quickly and get it mailed off. I’ll get my long arm friend to quilt it for me with hearts all over it. Just so excited…

Because I changed my cell phone number, I received a call this morning from K.S., one of the three Depot volunteers who live there in Mountain Aire Estates. He called to let me know he’d received my e-mail about the cell phone number change, but also to tell me there were at least two units going on the market very soon. He said he would call me and let me know the numbers once he was sure of them. Then, this afternoon when I went to the Depot to meet with the telephone repairman, K.S. was there and he mentioned offhand that he and his wife were considering selling their place and buying one up in Utah. I told him we came fairly close to buying in Weber, UT years ago, but decided to stay in San Diego and continue to look for a place here in Tehachapi. He and his wife have a very nice home at the end of a street there in the park. Their home has a garage and it’s a 3 bedroom, 2 bath. I asked him if he had a timeframe for moving and he said he didn’t know–that they’d been discussing it. Sooo… I’m thinking that one way or the other we will get what we want and need as far as housing goes. I just have to be patient!

Nothing else to report, so will close this with blessings to all. Some of you are going through some very difficult times right now and know that you are in my nightly prayers and my thoughts during the day. If words could heal and take away your pain, I’d be saying them like a mantra. Know that you are loved, and be sure to tell those you love that you love them. And please be safe…

      Thanks… I just got a reminder from J that Amelia is her third grandbaby!!! I’d forgot about the twin grandchildren that were born two years ago. And there’s another one due in January! Goodness, the older I get the more I forget! (I believe someone said that before me!)

    the fabric is so cute. I’m sure the quilt will be a treasure. And, even better, more home possibilities. I bet you will wind up with a choice of where you want to live.

      Oh yes, I’ve always felt that the move was what we needed to do; I had the same inner knowing when we were looking for this property. I KNEW that we would find it one day, and we did. The key is patience. Everything happens in its own time.
