Yesterday, I had meatloaf planned for dinner. Unfortunately, the meat didn’t thaw in time, so I needed substitution. On those nights, I find that a good, quick substitute is scrambled eggs. One of the girls mentioned that Jess was making green eggs and pancakes for dinner. I thought, “why not?” A long time a go, I used to do this sort of thing and it was fun. So I did….
The Washer and Dryer are finally here and I love them! They are so quiet! It took about 3 minutes for me to regret the decision to not get the pedestals. We’ll probably add them.
This Sunday, Chief and the girls are going to go see The Phantom of the Opera down at Bass Concert Hall at UT. This is being called the “Farewell Tour” and this is the final Texas engagement. I’m excited for them to get to go see it and I’m also happy that TheQueenofHearts can scope out the campus a bit (she hopes to be accepted into their performing arts program in a few years.)
Here is what I’ve spent some of my time on:
It is a quick knit and so cute! So tiny!!!!
Yesterday I downloaded the iPieta app for my iPhone and Touch. It comes highly recommended and is so loaded with goodies that you can’t download it over the 3G network. You either have to use the computer or a wifi connection! I’m going to load it onto my machines right after I’m done here. I’ll let y’all know how I like it. It really looks cool. Update: So far, I love it! I had to uninstall the app and reinstall before I could get the audio downloads to work, but it was worth the time to do that. I can’t wait until they put out more audio for it!
And now for the “I learned something new” files….
From the 1983 Code of Canon Law:
Can. 1251 Abstinence from meat, or from some other food as determined by the Episcopal Conference, is to be observed on all Fridays unless a solemnity should fall on a Friday. Abstinence and fasting are to be observed on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.
We are completely, morally free to celebrate the Solemnity of St Joseph this Friday by including a meat dish on our menu if we wish. We are not, however, required to. What I now wonder is… does this apply to our personal fasts? (really, I’m not looking to get out of anything… I’m just curious. 🙂 )
God bless you!
