...reading Mom's journals this afternoon she had a gift...It's cold and windy so I'm inside after getting my wood in for the night. I plan to watch Colombo later, that is my normal Sunday night thing to do after a simple home made meal, tonight: rice n bean burrito and tossed salad.
One of Mom's Journal Entries.
"This is my sixtieth wedding anniversary. Happy Day H.B. I am sitting here all alone...but me and Jesus been looking at the trees, so wilted for water. So I asked God for much needed rain to stop their tears, so they can play music again..."
This was mom's window to the world
Monday Jan 20, MLK Day: I share in his dream.
The mail won't run today...I have 2 letters stamped and waiting to go in the mail box, nothing really important, just some cards to my lovely sisters.
Another hard week spent trying to come to grips with my reality if one ever really comes to grips. I wanted to get a lot done this week, no call from the mechanic. I'm afraid to call him.
Bright spot: look who decided to come visit, since it got colder.
Got my van back mechanic was able to replace the 2 plugs I couldn't budge, but the original problem is still there. He said that plug had not been removed in a long time. I had the plugs done 5 yrs ago...Looks like they didn't replace the ones they couldn't get out!! So original problem was a jerk and slight deceleration up hill with a ticking sound. So back to the guessing phase. One more thing I can do without any help (very simple to do) is replace the plug wires in case one is grounding out. I have ordered a set and can pick up in store tomorrow. Had a 20% off coupon so used that. Fingers crossed. I will pick up some fuel injector cleaner also. Made a pot of very hearty veggie chili and now have a blazing fire in the fireplace. The dogs are fed and sleeping peacefully in front of it. Later at 8 pm I will watch Jamie's 30 Minute Meals, and This is Us on the boob tube. Bed by 10!
the outer sheath had a huge split and was melted to the valve covers.
YES.. problem solved, I replaced all 9 leads, and now it runs like a 19 yr old top again, which means its still a rolling time bomb...could die at any moment.

MY sis's birthday It's your day SIS!
Chore day for me. Laundry, vacuuming, run dishwasher, fill the bird feeders, bring in wood, brush the 3 hounds, and more that I've forgotten already!
It rained early and now at 6 pm it's raining again, but the entire day was ok!
