In some areas, and this used to be one, today is the annual celebration termed "Columbus Day", in honor of the first known European discoverer of the Americas. In some places, those over run with the P.C. / Social Justice buffoons, it's either ignored or renamed. But here, public offices, libraries, schools, banks, even my doctor's office, are closed.
We woke, rather later than planned, to 36 degrees outside. Yuck!! Yet, later in the week, and most of next week, we are foreseeing temperatures in the mid-70's, far more to my liking.
Wife had another rough night. Doesn't help that the fleecy 'throw" that she puts over herself when on the recliner is now showing signs of "cat doo" on it. So I'll toss it in the washer. Again. Just washed it Friday. Going to wear it out at this rate. Color me "not happy".
Our reading from the Old Testament today is chapters 43 and 44 of the book of Isaiah.
Our New Testament reading is chapter 2 from Colossians.
