I hope you are all enjoying a wonderful and restful summer.

I thought that I would share a song with you that was used in our Sunday liturgy this past weekend. It was used after our homily and I was really moved by the song. It was "All I Ask of You" by Weston Priory and can be heard at the weblink below. Enjoy the song. It looks as though much more of their music is accessible at this website by going to their homepage.

Peace to you my Brothers and Sisters

Hi Joe,

My summer has had its restful moments in between things like little league baseball, house painting and yard work. The highlight has certainly been a week camping in the Adirondacks with my family. That has always been a rejuvenating destination for me. Here is a moment I captured of my son out on an early morning fishing excursion.



I keep trying to find mental rest in the chores of parenthood and home ownership, but it doesn't come as easily for me as immersing myself in the natural setting of the mountains - and the humidity is rarely as high up there as it can be down here.

Peace to you.

Did he catch anything? Assuming he did, how did you prepare and cook it? Wish I could trade places with you this week. LOL Laughing

Our time up there was actually a few weeks ago now.

We fished from our canoe every morning that week. As I recall, that was one of the slower fishing days. He did have one morning where he must have caught thirty pumpkin seeds, along with a few perch and a small bass. We released everthing. He did a fine job hooking them as I don't believe he let one of them swallow the hook. I have never eaten pumpkin seeds, but when I was telling the story to my father, he remembered spending hours catching pumpkin seeds up on the St. Lawrence River and then taking them to his Native American grandmother who had a method of salting and curing them for eating throughout the winter. That would have been during the 1930's.

In addition to catching the smaller fish with my boys, I had some fun looking for the bigger bass in the lake. I found three of them. My other son did surprise me when he caught a 13 inch bullhead too.

It definately was a great week.

Peace

Ditto on the home improvement. I really think I could just camp forever and be happy--small spaces, basic chores, beautiful nature. Where does all of this STUFF come from? And where is it supposed to go? Sometimes my house just wears me out.

Thanks for sharing it.

It's been a long time since I was fishing; I used to enjoy freshwater fishing and particularly fishing for trout. We are in the midle of home improvment project that involves putting down and painting a floor. My husband and brother-in-law are doing most of the work, but it-of course, involved taking the stove, refrigerator, etc. out of the kitchen. We haven't been able to use the stove-which is a pain in the neck-and getting into the kitchen is like doing an obstacle course. Now my husband is putting down polyurethane and it smells awful. I really apprecaite their hard work, and it will look really nice, but doing this in a house with no central air conditioning when it's in the 90's outside
has made it harder for the guys. I'm sure my husband would like to be in the Adirondacks.

On a pleasanter note, my son is at a UM camp enjoying (hopefully) a pool, stream hikes, campfires, the nearbye lake and worship and Bible study. He had never been away from home for more than a day or two, but we haven't gotten any calls, so I assume he is doing o.k. The setting is beautiful. I wish we could be someplace like that. We have dogs I never made kennel arrangments for, so I think there will be no vacation for us, aside from the fact that my husband is now laid off (sigh) so we are trying to watch our money.

I'm sorry to hear about your husband's job, Austen.

Will pray for a remedy to the situation.

Your kitchen story: I'll remind myself of it when I clean my inexplicably white floor tiles for the fifth time in one week.

White? What were the previous owners thinking?

I admire your industry

Cradle. I probably wouldn't clean it as much. The linoleum in the kitchen before was white with a design in blue. The people renting it before we moved back in chose that. I guess white is used to brighten a room, but it's not a good color for high traffic areas. We now have a biege and light brown checkerboard design which hopefully will be a bit better to clean, but things are never really all that clean with hairy dogs-one of which is black and quite hairy, and who likes to sleep on the cool kitchen floor in the summer.
