Thank you to Bearing for linking to this free pdf booklet by Fr. Longenecker on St. Benedict for Busy Parents. I have been so desperate for something to read . . . desperate enough to crack the pages of White Fang, which does not interest me in the least, but it’s on my shelves for certain schoolchildren, and what else was I going to read? Now I’ve got 25 pages of reprieve from that monster.
–> The library is right out, because I absolutely cannot keep track of one more thing right now, and the library means about twenty more things, all hidden under mattresses and stuck behind dressers by the time the third renewal comes around. Sometimes, being a person who is simply not interested in television is maybe not all it’s cracked up to be. Even if actually Eric Sammons is right. (He is.)
In other news, if you had were one of the people (contacted privately) praying for the best dog in the world in her recent illness, she is home and looking a little better. Looks like a case of thyroid gone AWOL, guess that happens to middle-aged ladies of many species. Venison and rice and a big bone boiling on the stove for her now, the rest of us I think are having frozen pizza.
