Proverbs 21:1 in the lord’s hand the king’s heart is a stream of water that he channels toward all who please him.
Ecclesiastes 2:26 to the person who pleases him, god gives wisdom, knowledge and happiness, but to the sinner he gives the task of gathering and storing up wealth to hand it over to the one who pleases god. this too is meaningless, a chasing after the wind. Day 48

Today was our food pick-up day at Hill Country Communities Ministries. This is our once a month food allotment. We were scheduled for pickup right after they opened at nine. That means we had time to take the food back to the apartment. We didn’t get it all carried inside but at least it is out of the car. The frozen and refrigerated items are split between the two ice chests. This was all done before taking Ella to work at the mall.

We arrived at the mall prior to the door being unlocked. So, we sat in the parking lot for a few minutes, waiting. Once security had the doors open, Ella went in. This is her next to the last day to work this season.

Once I was home, I started unpacking and putting away. Beets, broccoli, celery, pineapple, grapefruit, and oranges? or smaller grapefruit in the left sink. In the other sink are potatoes, sweet potatoes/yams, carrots, apples, and an onion. There is also a large bag of pistachios that didn’t make it into the photos.

I took some celery, carrots, broccoli, and the onion to the food pantry here in the apartments

In the large blue bag are a-lot of frozen chicken patties (I broke those down to smaller serving size bags), then assorted trays of frozen meats, cartons of shelf stable milk, coconut milk, real milk, and yogurt.

In this photo are: Laundry soap, dish soap, Castile soap, rice Krispy bars, pepperoni, salmi, lemon water, donut holes, cheese strudel bites, and cookies.

Here we have cereal, Mac and cheese, black beans, grape jelly, marinara sauce, Alfredo sauce, canned peaches and fruit mix, black pepper, bacon pieces, jello, fruit drinks, and assorted cosmetics.

Now we have apple juice, tortilla chips, Swiss cheese, brownie mix, a dozen eggs, and a loaf of raisin bread.

Kool-aid, pasta sides, lemon water, Ramon noodles, assorted soups and canned veggies, canned chicken, tuna, and more chips to finish off the load. We are truly blessed of the Lord.

I had some canned items to add to the apartments food pantry also.

The one thing we didn’t receive was sandwich bread. So I stopped at Wally World for a couple loaves of bread, tea bags, and cranberry capsules for Ella.

This is where I wait in the shade until time for Ella to be off work. Then I drive down to pick her up at the curb.

For supper we had chicken patties, steamed broccoli, and buttered beets. The broccoli and beets (both high in vitamin K which counter act the blood thinners)
will mess with my next INR (clotting factor) test. But I don’t care. They tasted so good.
