Mid-week now. I'd intended to attend the mid-week gathering at the church, but that did not happen. Dear Wife has been pretty much flat on her back (on the recliner, true) with foot elevated, all day. Tomorrow she's on schedule to "watch" the Beloved Great Niece next door. I got caught up in things and completely forgot to go down to an ATM and pick up cash money for the rent money we pay to the niece for use of the hovel. So I'll make a point of doing so in the morning. Or at least during daylight hours, she works 7-4 so any time during the day should suffice.
I need to make some phone calls also. A local staffing company had posted some positions earlier in the year, the positions noted were for tasks similar to those I had been overseeing in my last job. I'd sent an e-mail inquiry on the Monday of the previous week, and still have received no reply whatever. I suspect -- with a very high degree of expected accuracy -- the name of the principal purchaser of the service. Out of a courtesy, I had not directly approached them. My next move will be affected in great degree by the response I get. Even 30 hours/week at $8 an hour would be of great assistance right now. Things are beyond "tight".
And tomorrow marks the end of official Summer and the beginning of official Autumn. Summer has been warm. Predictions are that the coming Winter will be bitter --- even by local standards -- and very very snowy -- even by local standards here in the Snow Belt -- and the prospect does not fill me with joy. Wife, as a post-menopausal woman -- has a rather different take on the issue.
Can't wait to see the calendar showing the day as being mid-April or later.
The Old Testament reading is chapters 1, 2, and 3 from the Song of Songs, sometimes called the Song of Solomon. This is, again, some of that Scripture that was never never never mentioned or taught when I was growing up, and pretty rarely since then as well.
Song of Solomon 2
Song of Solomon 3
The New Testament reading is chapter 12 of 2nd Corinthians.
