Shakespeare Camp 2016: Day 2

Great progress made, and beautiful weather today!

Director Mrs Kane asked that the actors please watch this 5-minutes long scene ("Tricking Benedik") from the film of our play.  https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=J2gKEelDYpI

Sandy Benz came to visit and took most of the photos below.

Sister Marta's First Profession!

I had a phone conversation with Sister Marta OSB this morning... It was wonderful to hear her voice, laugh together, chat about several things... Oh, joyful morning! She told me she was approved and will be making her First Profession in October!  Now we will see who of us is going to Germany this fall...

Peach Season

And what better way to enjoy them but in an outside breakfast, with yogurt, raspberries and pecans?

Best Cheesecake ever

Susannah Kane has been spending a lot of time at our house this summer, for our delight, as her summer job is here in Brookings. One of the things she and Number Six enjoy doing together is... baking! They made this cheesecake and we enjoyed it last night as we had a nice dinner before attending a local theatrical production.  It as A-MA-ZING!

St Thomas More Feast day


I am in the yard everyday, enjoying every minute of the gorgeous summer weather: weeding, mowing, watering. One of my rewards has been this one hydrangea plant--hard to believe such a beautiful flower can bloom right in our backyard!

A darling Thank You note

We get many wonderful thank you notes... and I like to display them on a shelf above my desk. This one arrived a couple of weeks ago, from our compadres' niece, a little courageous girl who has had many similar allergy problems as our own Number Two. She was under unpleasant medication for a spell and I sent her some coloring things--she says her health is improving and she sent me her nice artwork!
