Friday has hit. When one is "on the beach" (not literally), meaning retired, the various weekdays don't mean what they once did. Now, Sunday is church services. Monday often (not always) means Dear Wife is up early, like an alarm around 05:30 -- 06:00, to go next door to "watch" the Beloved Great Niece because both niece and nephew-in-law (I guess that's the phrasing?) have to leave for work -- her by 06:45, he by 07:15. Tuesday is a "nothing" day, except that when my SS check hits on Tuesday morning, I'm off to the Big Box store to replenish the larder (and also the gas tank), and the same to a lesser extent when her Disability check hits. Wednesday is the day I gather up the week's trash for placement at the road that night, Thursday morning is when the trash is picked up. Friday and Saturday generally aren't much, unless something comes up. There's the week. So the old "hump day" and "TGIF" and all that just don't mean much. Not sure I like it.
But today I "got" to go to local grocery. Big sale on chicken breasts (we got 15 pounds of boneless skinless chicken breasts for $20, a good deal) so I got dispatched to Do The Deed. Did. Back home. Excitement for the day. Having my 3rd cup of coffee now. Wife is napping on the recliner, feet elevated on the foot rest and two additional pillows, under a blanket but needing the A/C unit blowing cold air on her. No, I do not understand.
I see on the news that the authorities in England are still reluctant to say openly what is pretty much known: that the knife-wielding would-be mass murderer in London who killed the wife of an American professor and badly wounded half a dozen more, was a Somali MOSLEM carrying out jihad on old women. Islam is a doctrine of demons, the cult of the worship of the devil. And this is what it looks like. But the gutless post-Christian biggies in the U.K., as well as the E.U. and both the U.S. and Canada, are simply unable to say so. But it's true.
The Old Testament reading is Psalms 75, 76, and 77.
The New Testament passage is Romans 6. Good stuff here!
