Crazy Weather

Our weather turned cool and rainy so we didn't do too much other than going to the grocery and doing a little shopping for our France trip (at a regular store no less!). I went ahead and had a pedicure and manicure because I won't have time before we leave again.

Ted didn't shoot on Saturday because the fields were muddy so we hung out until it was time for church. We went back to Our Lady of Guadalupe and Fr. Roy. There was a wedding just ending, it was 20 minutes until Mass ... and we still didn't get a seat. We went up in the balcony and I found a chair but Ted had to stand the entire time. The gospel was the devil tempting Jesus in the desert after 40 days of fasting. We had two young men running through the church acting out the scenes, ending up in the balcony in front of us as the devil offered the city of Jerusalem to Jesus. And then the music started ... I Was Almost Persuaded!! Comparing the devil tempting Jesus to a bar lady tempting a married man is a stretch but hey temptation is temptation I guess. Five dogs were there, all dressed in purple blankets for Lent.

We were to hear the Bishop's Annual Appeal via a DVD but they had last year's by mistake so he said he would show it next week. Then someone found the correct one so eventually we did see it. Fr. Roy is totally unflappable. If things don't go right, he just talks to us as if we were in his living room and laughs things off.

We came home to a roast in the crockpot so we quickly ate open-faced roast beef sandwiches and then went to the clubhouse for an ice cream social followed by Pokeeno. Karen and Pat both won but neither of us did.

Our weather turned good again and the guys went shooting. I started working on my ancestors since I have the list of descendants done for my reunion. There is other info to fill in but I need to sync my info to Family Tree where I can add Marriage Dates and other things and I need help from Gerre on that.

We had the luau tonight so I made my appetizer and Dulce and I decorated our table.

We had a great dinner with our friends and set up a time for our trip to Mexico on Tuesday.

We can't believe our month is almost up. We're really not ready to leave but it is time.

Love your appetizer - it really looks GREAT! You better be careful on your trips to Mexico - we heard this morning on the news that a tour group (on a bus) from a cruise line were stopped and robbed at gunpoint in Mexico - and the state department has sent out warnings to American travelers! I know you don't go far in but just watch your back (as well as your front and sides)!
