1. Father B is out of the hospital! Thanks again to everybody who prayed for him! Hopefully he’ll be back to his usual duties soon.
2. Did you know that Saturday, April 28th is National Drug Take Back Day? If you have unused or expired prescription medicines, this is the time to get rid of them! Prescription drug abuse is turning into an epidemic in the US, and most abusers begin with meds found in their home or a friend’s home. Click here to find a collection site near you! And if you have elderly relatives, ask them if they need any help cleaning out their medicine cabinets.
3. Fescues are turning into my scorpions. It’s been a month since I threw those buggers in the compost, and every time I open it up, they’re sitting pretty, just as green as they were when I first threw them in! I swear they’re staying alive just so that they can come back when I throw my compost on the garden next spring.
4. I am not having good luck with getting seeds to grow! None of the first batch of carrots I planted came up. Only a handful of the second batch have come up. Only one one of the first batch of lettuces I planted came up (not surprising, last year’s seeds). After a week, none of the 2nd batch has come up. None of the 1st batch of spinach I planted came up (again, last year’s seeds). I sowed a 2nd batch the same day as I sowed the 2nd batch of lettuces, and so far only one has come up. (I blame the cold snap we had a few days ago.) The only seeds I’ve actually done well with are radishes. Suggestions?
5. I’m not going to lie to you, Marge. Now that Lent’s over, I’m really enjoying drinking beer again! Any recommendations for craft/microbrews?
6. It’s funny how the Prayer of the Month series has been coming together. Every time I pick a prayer, I wonder if I’ll ever find anything to say about it. And yet, so far whenever I devote the time to it, I get something good. (I’ll let you be the judge of how insightful I am.) Thank you, Holy Spirit.
7. It’s Friday, so we need a song! This Friday’s song is “Your Horoscope For Today” by Weird Al.
