Last Post of July

"See you next month!" My mom told me this on the last day of the month as she said good-night to me when I was a child. I loved this because it was a dramatic statement ("next month" sounds like a long time) and funny because all I would have to do to see her again was wake up the next morning. I was easy to entertain as a child. Didn't take much to amuse me.

God helped me find my LH who comes from a heritage of easily entertained folks. We are a good match. With a few words or a simple drawing or whatever, we can entertain ourselves for a long time.

Our children are easy to entertain.

Now come the kittens who, it turns out, are easy to entertain, too. Take Dibley for instance. Turn on the dishwasher and the kitty is transfixed staring at a black plain fronted dishwasher. He doesn't want to move.
Assumpta can play with a bookmark, piece of crinkly paper or her own tail all afternoon. The only way to distract either Dibley from the dishwasher or Assumpta from her toys is sleep. Both kittens drop into deep sleep mid-sentence. One moment they are busy, the next minute they are supine puddles of fur.

I'm off to finish the Lily Connor, Anglican tentmaker Mystery solver priest, novel then drop into deep sleep.

See you next month........

I just finished "The Book of Light", which i am afraid is the last Lily Connor book. Is there another one? Each one got better and this was my favorite.

Grace- I think the three books are all there is. Bah - I enjoyed them so much; I hope she writes another soon.

Good news to share - just passed another hurdle in my discernment process, so now my rector will form the parish discernment committee. I'd say this marks the halfway point.

St. Cass - happy new month!

Congrats! Let's Celebrate!

I'm reminded of when I was a child and we would return from Christmas vacation in January -- "John, I haven't seen you all year!"
