Taking the good example of Father Gordon MacRae, I’m thinking of doing a bit of spring cleaning today! I’ve had this good intention before and failed. We’ll see!
UPDATE: 12:43 PM. The constant invasions of chickens are not making this easier!
UPDATE: 2:15 PM – In the pictures above, one is looking over the stove and under the stove from almost the same place. In the top picture you can see a chicken outside my front and only ”door”. I’ve done no spring cleaning since, instead, I had a wonderful phone call from Father MacRae. We were again cut off at the 30 minute mark. That’s how the recorded and monitored calls work. We were able to take care of quite a bit of business this time round. I have some tasks to accomplish and then go to town as a follow up on the phone call. So, that will delay spring cleaning until later this afternoon! Yikes!
UPDATE: 4:00 PM – Letters sent to Father MacRae. Picked up the mail and what did I find?
That’s for the brown recluse spider bites, I’m sure. Please note that the onslaught did not start… yet. And hopefully it won’t. I’m no longer in the loft of the barn, but up in the hermitage, well, not that there’s that much difference! Thanks to the benefactor of the iodine! Of course, this can also be used for any chainsaw injuries. Hopefully there won’t be any of those either.
My first use of iodine was putting two or three drops in a glass of water over in India, killing all the beasts before drinking them up with the water!
UPDATE: 8:00 PM – Back at the hermitage. The chickens are tucked in for the night. A bit of wood was gathered and broken up for a quick fire for a meal tomorrow morning. But as to the spring cleaning. No. Way, way too tired today to launch myself into that. And tomorrow’s Sunday. And, it’s already Vespers… So, forget spring cleaning. Some of the things mentioned in the phone call with Father MacRae have been weighing on me. Yikes! Please pray for Father MacRae. He’s been carrying a great deal. I think he’s met every world class Judas, and he’s let this make him more conformed to Christ than ever. Hail Mary…
