I’m standing here with my brother Knights after our morning’s work at St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church in Kirby, TX. We served as Honor Guard for a San Antonio Archdiocesan Confirmation Mass.
As another day winds down I’m happy to note it’s been a good one.
Lectoring at 10:00 Mass went well. I arrived plenty early which helped, it gave me time to review the “Announcements After Mass” beforehand in order to be more comfortable reading them when the time came to do that. The Cantor was absent so it fell to me to lead the Responsorial Psalm, but the choir was present and they were able to sing the “Alleluia” before the Gospel reading. Glad I didn’t have to do that. Heh. This was our Knights of Columbus Council monthly Corporate Mass and it’s always good to work together with my brother Knights.
Relaxing at home through the afternoon and evening I was able to do prep work for the weekly and monthly chores.
One habit I’ve gotten into is placing stars on our kitchen calendar so Sylvia and I can see at a glance those days when we have doctor’s appointments, scheduled meetings, or special events we’re obligated to attend. At the first of the month, here’s what our September is looking like:
And I’m glad my medicine cabinet is well stocked with Zyrtec. Dosing before bedtime seems necessary to get any kind of restful sleep, and dosing in the morning is important to making it through the day without all those horrible allergy symptoms.
Hope we all have a good night, folks. I’ll check back with you in the morning.
Ah, Saturday morning. A fresh new day opening quietly. Let’s hope it stays that way.
The plans I had in mind for today when I went to bed last night are still in place: morning cleanup, evening Mass, and Svengoolie at night. The makings of a pretty good day in the Roscoe-verse.
I hope we all have a pretty good day. We’ll check back with you all later.
At ~ 09:30 this fine Saturday morning I’m barely awake, having crawled out of the sack less than an hour ago from one of the best night’s sleeps I’ve had in a good long while. Being fully awake probably won’t happen for another hour or so. That’s an old folks thing: waking up being a process that usually takes about two hours. Those of you who, like me, have reached a certain fullness of age will understand. The rest of you, just wait.
Today’s main chore will be serving as Lector this evening at Mass. Thank God Sylvia will be here to drive me so I won’t have to walk over to the church during the peak heat of the day! We’re still in the middle of our triple-digit heat wave, temperatures topping 100 every day for over a week now and promising to continue well into next week – at least. So a goal for today will be to spend as much time inside under the a/c as possible.
I’ll check back with you later, folks. Take care.
