To those who follow my silly blog - I am sorry about not posting. The summer can be very draining when one has Multiple Sclerosis. Also this time of year is marked by the anniversary of my mother-in-law's passing - this month being the first anniversary.
And it is not so fun to post when I don't have the camera!!! My son and husband have taken the digital camera to Ireland with them.
I have not been doing much with bentos lately BUT I have been trying new foods.
Yesterday I had bubble tea for the first time!
I finally used the lotus root I bought -- and boy do I have to work on using that! It is bland - like an underdone piece of fried potato - but it has potential.
I try to go to the local farmers market(s) - LOVE them.
I have been helping at a free program to introduce folks to kayaking - this is the 3rd summer I have done that. I look forward to actually getting on the water more once I get a break from some of this fatigue.
I have decided to FINALLY get a cell phone plan (lol - I have only had my pay as you go SIM for 14 + years) and will be trying out Consumer Cellular.
AND I am going to re-examine the use of structured prayer in my life. I am going to resume praying (or trying to pray - LOL - if I can adjust to the process!) the Liturgy of the Hours. I will use Universalis.com for now and may go back to using the books if 1) I can find where I put them and 2) if I can navigate them! Here is a piece from the Morning Prayer intercessions that really struck a note with me:
O God, you have made light shine out from the shadows and you have illuminated our hearts and made them ready to perceive your brightness in the face of Jesus Christ: increase our desire to contemplate your beloved Son.– Lord, give us light that we may see.
