Today we have another retirement celebratory dinner. The temps are a balmy 13 degrees. Wow, feels like a heat wave after the last week of sub-zero temps.
I have kind of felt like my ability to set a routine has been on hold until Harold was retired from his second job. Before we took jobs off the farm, our big meal - dinner - was at noon. That went out the window with both of us gone. Cooking kind of went out the window too. We each got in the habit of eating when we got home from work. It will be nice to go back to being a farm family again. Since Harold farms with his brother and nephew and with our son, I will have people sitting around the table at noon once again. That will be nice.

Word of the day
Second Sunday in Ordinary Time
Jn 1:35-42

John was standing with two of his disciples,
and as he watched Jesus walk by, he said,
“Behold, the Lamb of God.”
The two disciples heard what he said and followed Jesus.
Jesus turned and saw them following him and said to them,
“What are you looking for?”
They said to him, “Rabbi” — which translated means Teacher —,
“where are you staying?”
He said to them, “Come, and you will see.”
So they went and saw where Jesus was staying,
and they stayed with him that day.
It was about four in the afternoon.
Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter,
was one of the two who heard John and followed Jesus.
He first found his own brother Simon and told him,
“We have found the Messiah” — which is translated Christ —.
Then he brought him to Jesus.
Jesus looked at him and said,
“You are Simon the son of John; you will be called Cephas” — which is translated Peter.

God bless our troops!
