Golly, An Update

 I'm slipping again, dear blog. It's been a few days.

I'll try to catch you up on what we've been up to. 

The guys are working like crazy. Paul works all day at the Y and then goes to Ripkin Stadium and works most nights. He's trying to get as much saved for school as possible. He leaves for Franciscan on the 19th!! I can't believe how soon it's coming up! Brendan is also working five nights a week at the Amazon warehouse in Aberdeen. I guess John is also working there to make some extra to pay down some bills, and since Paul worked there last year, I guess I should go down and apply, lol.

We have been working on getting the yard cleaned up and the beds weeded. While I was away things got a bit overgrown. I have most of it under control now. I don't want to use Round-up, because dear Cora loves to eat the grass in the back yard, and I don't want her eating that, so I am just pulling it. There is an area in the back behind the fence that is in desperate need, but I just can't stand all the mosquitos!

Danielle came over the other day and we gave Luna and Cora haircuts. I really didn't want to do it yet, but Cora's coat was getting really long and she was going to start getting mats. It was also super hot. She looks cute, and she must feel better. She is doing so well in the house! She hasn't had any accidents, and she always rings the bell to go out. She also has started going to bed at 10:30 and getting up at 7:00, which made for a nice weekend! 

Tim is away this week. He is in Kentucky on the first work trip in over a year! Covid put all the travel on hold. He is also going some time in September. 

Tomorrow morning is Mass and then we are starting to go back to the old Adoration schedule. We will have it in the chapel from 9:00 to 7:00 pm with Benediction and a Novena at the end! I am so glad! 

I have been reading Granny Bea's letters and they are just hilarious. What a force of nature she was!

Tomorrow I have to get up early, so I will be hitting the sack now.
