Memorial Day and Corpus Christi

Sunday, May 29. Memorial Day weekend: the unofficial first day of summer vacations, and something more serious. I've talked about that before. (This Season: Memorial Day)

The other big deal this weekend, for folks at the two Catholic parishes, is the Corpus Christi procession from Our Lady of the Angels to St. Paul's.

First stop. (May 29, 2016)

And - arriving at St. Paul's. (May 29, 2016)

That's all I had the energy for this week. The family is (slowly) getting over whatever this bug is, and I'll end on that 'up' note.

More Flowers

Sunday, May 22. On the whole, I'd prefer that this 'summer cold' cease and desist. Maybe next week - - -. Meanwhile, the lilacs out front have pretty much peaked.

And - what else? - more lilacs. (May 22, 2016)

Next week will be different: better, I hope.

Flowers, Mostly

Sunday, May 15. The 'summer cold' is still with me, but I took pictures of some lilacs.

More lilacs. (May 15, 2016)

You guessed it: still more lilacs. (May 15, 2016)

We had a freeze warning: Saturday, I think that was. Aside from that, it's been pleasant enough: except when it wasn't. I am sincerely looking forward to not having this cold.

Colorful — Toadstools?

Sunday, May 1. Finally, another entry in the Sauk Centre Journal. The last one, December 27, 2015, ended with "I plan to be back next week.

"Next week" turned out to to be about four months later. Sorry about that. I've got a few photos to show, besides the two I took this afternoon: but those will wait until later. Next week, I hope: but that's what I said last December. We'll see.

Bright blue skies, sunshine, and similarly-pleasant conditions got me outside this week: and enjoying the experience.

Colorful: toadstools? This photo doesn't really do them justice. That little yellowish-green thing on the far right one is a cartoonish "worm."(May 1, 2016)

Garage sales and yard sales are routine. "Craft sale," not so much. (May 1, 2016)

That's all for today. Next week: I'm hopeful I'll have more.
