There’s my front porch, all decked out for halloween. I spent the weekend doing extreme tasks and my body hurts from it. Canning apple sauce, cleaning the garage, installing devices to hang a wheelbarrow in the garage, installing a hooks to hang bicycles from. When I was done with all that, I was exhausted and said I would lay on the couch and watch football, but I just couldn’t do it. I came outside with my leaf vacuum and rake and bags, and next thing you know, my neighbor was helping me get all the leaves up. Then we went to her yard and got all her leaves up and bagged. What a wonderful thing it is to have someone to work with.
I took today off and will meet my friend for breakfast and a movie. I need this down time. My whole body hurts. Oh did I say that before? sorry.
My daughter is back home and making me laugh. She is such a joy to have around the house. Even if she has that slobbering dog with her.
I decided to “save” money by not buying my $50. per year subscription to the Magnificat, a wonderful little publication with prayers and the daily readings for each day. This morning I saw on Mary in Africa’s blog that today is the feast day of St. Teresa of Avila. Mary wrote a beautiful reflection on her. I am going to resubscribe to Magnificat so I know what the heck is going on!
Sorry I am so devoid of ideas this morning. It is just a vacation day and I have lovely plans for it.
Nothing is more apt to confirm our faith and hope than holding it fixed in our minds that nothing is impossible with God. — CCC 274
