Feast Day of Saint Martha of Bethany

My Saint is Saint Martha of Bethany.  Her feast day is July 29th.  She is the Saint of home keepers.  You should know her also as the Martha from the Martha and Mary story from the Bible.  Sister to Lazarus, friend of Jesus.

Great place to get lots of great resources for color pages, projects, and learning materials.

Another place to get great recipes and ideas.

Today was a laundry day.  We spent the day at Hubby's sister's house.  She is kind enough to let me use her washer and dryer as we must use the laundry mat here.  And there are days that we really need to use a bigger machine to do blankets or have more laundry than we care to pay to wash. So we go for the day and use her machines.  The dogs love having the day to run around with us.  She also has cable, which we do not.  Bri loves to watch Doctor Who and a few other shows.  Hubby and me watched old episodes of Laramie.  We are very addicted to old Westerns. Hubby does handy man type work around her house.  

The weather here has been very, very hot.  Lots of pop up thunderstorms.  We can get lots of rain in a very short amount of time.  Bri has been in the pool almost daily.  Thankfully, the sun is off the pool by about 5pm.  Hubby and me have also gone out and took a nice swim after work.  Love that we can swim late in the evening.  The pool is almost as warm as bathwater.   

Still trying to read "The Benedict Option."  Very good, but lots to think about.  

Well, it is late and well past my bedtime.  God Bless you and yours.      to old e.
