Its another day in the life of Ruby. A lot going on and not a lot getting done. All I can do is try to stay focused and move forward.
I am now having trouble with my garbage pick up. I have to call all the time and it never gets done until I call about 3 times. I hope they will come by today and pick up the garbage from last week because I have more garbage in my home for them to pick up on their regular route. This is making me so angry.
I am looking at another house this weekend on Moon Lake. It is much smaller than what I am used to living in and the rent will be higher. It will be all worth it in the long run. I cant deal with all this pressure of having to move and start all over.
I doubt I will plant a garden this summer because I am having to move. I hope to be able to set out some plants if I move in time. I enjoy that so much but I know I can’t make any definant plans right now. This will cut into my income this summer but I have faith that all my needs will be taken care of. I am going to focus on selling Watkins products and find something else to sell this summer. I have to keep motivated and get it all worked out. I would go find a part time job if things don’t work out the way I planned.
I have been working on my website more in the past two weeks than I have in a while. I am adding new things to it that has to do with growing your own food, living a self sustainable life, and gardening. Check it out if you can. www.southernorganicgardens.com
The weather around here has been awful. I am still running my heater at night because it gets so cold. Propane costs so much so I have to run the electric heater and it doesn’t heat as well as propane. I am ready for the true spring to get here.
I have changed so much since I excepted Christ and joined a Bible teaching church. It is the best feeling of all. I have made a huge different in my life and I am so grateful for the second chance. There are two things I just do not agree with and I refuse to make any exceptions on my beliefs. I pray every day that I can learn to except things as they are stop being so judgmental.
The crime in Clarksdale is getting worse. I am scared to go to the grocery store at night or on weekends. Shopping on the 1st, 3rd, and food stamp day are out of the question. That’s why I shop online most of the time. I am all for keeping your money in your community but I am also all for staying alive and unhurt as long as you possibly can. So much unnecessary hate and violence here. Its bad every where but its worse here for sure.
I will not be vacationing any this year because my plans always change at the last moment and I still cant go anywhere. I am now planning to take a day or two off and that’s it. If I go somewhere; I will. If not then I will stay home and enjoy my days off.
