Home and Family

It's now the first week of June, and we are finally starting to see some easing with the lockdown. We are entering "stage two" in Maryland. I am not real clear on what that will entail, but I do know that I will be able to receive Jesus on Sunday, for the first time in months! I am so excited! I am going to dress up! 😊

Other than that things around here aren't much different. I have been to visit a couple of friends, and the guys are getting out to see their friends more often.
Tim is still working from home, but we have a good schedule worked out for the use of the office room in the basement. 

The weather has been hot for the last few days, and last night we had a rip-roaring storm! 
It was nice for the plants!🌷
I have done very little in the gardening department, but I am maintaining the areas around the house. 
I have been mostly working on stuff indoors. 

Nina and Lilly are heading out to PA tomorrow morning for a sheep show. 
Lilly has worked hard on her lambs.🐑
Cecil County Fair has been cancelled, but they are hoping for some independent shows. 
Nina has a new heifer, Delilah. She is a very pretty little thing. She is also a pretty tough little thing. 
Hope they get a halter on her soon.

I guess I will be driving to Texas sometime in August. I had hoped to be heading down there much sooner, but the Covid problem is still pretty bad in the states that I would have to drive through, so I am not going to try until it has more time to settle down. The cities are also pretty unstable right now due to the protests that are going on. Most of them are peaceful and are kept in check by the participants, but some of the bigger cities are being looted and burned, and I would be traveling alone, so I guess waiting is the best plan. 

I have been trying to get out for a walk every day, just to have time to pray the Rosary and listen to a podcast or two, but man, it's so hot today!

Maybe tomorrow will be better. 

I am praying for a better month in June. So far 2020 has been a handful.
