Happy Sunday to one and all. The day started well. Got up and took the dogs for brisk walks this morning first thing and came back and raked leaves for about an hour, and then got cleaned up for church. Sleep is escaping me these days, but I a... Read more

I had an early morning Mass and meeting concerning a parish that is closing and therefore their St. Vincent de Paul Conference will be closing as well. I have written to the Archdiocese to find out how the parishes around it will be reorganized... Read more

Well this has been a long day. Nothing special. Had a lot of limbs to clean up from the 40-60 mph winds we had last night. The poor dogs were twisting their cables and the limbs and my poor blind husky looked so lost. I had to untangle the li... Read more

For some reason every day this week I have been waking up at 6:00 a.m. even though I have been going to bed late, so this morning I had the assignment to go to Jefferson Barracks National Cemetary and had the job to take flowers to 8 graves of r... Read more

Today was a pretty uneventful day. The foot still hurts some but not as bad as yesterday. I moved around working with it. I wish all the leaves would fall. I seems like I keep raking but over night they reappear all over. Doesn't help much t... Read more

Well, this has been recuperation day. The auction went as well as it could, but was so much work for me at the last minute. I was so tired when we got home last night, and my knees and ankles throbbed for hours before I could go to bed. I got... Read more

Another November! It's that time of year when we look around us to see the signs of life passing into signs of dormancy and dying - an important reminder of the fragility of life and the fleeting moments that make up our journeys. Looking... Read more

Well we had a rainy day today. I got up and got the dogs out early so we could get our walks in before the rain. I don't know if the knee hurt a little more today because of the rain or what but my leg is tight and doesn't want to spend. I tr... Read more

Today, I pretty much felt like the weather. Foggy and mostly cloudy. It was very hard to apply once again for my unemployment. My brother called, and I know he was only cracking a joke, he said hey at least someone in this family is getting t... Read more

Not much to report today. I think I have a cold or something working on me. I spent several hours working on the auction. The people chairing this year's auction were too proud to ask for help or information, and left so much to be done. So ... Read more

Well, I took it easy on the knee today. Spent a couple of hours on the tractor mulching leaves up, and spent a little time trimming some bushes. I only walked for about 30 minutes outside of taking the dogs for their walk. My knee feels a lit... Read more
