Let us rejoice. Today the sun is bright and warm. I’m sure that farmers would be happy to see a week of dry weather. All the water standing in fields makes getting stuck with big machines a constant problem.
As far as I’m aware, it’s been a quiet week around the Motherhouse. Nice for a little break. Yesterday we celebrated Sister Julien’s birthday. Sr. Julien is the Motherhouse Administrator—a big job that she does very well.

Last Week was Sauerkraut-making-day. The cabbage was all sliced before noon. Pictured here is Sr. Ruth “stomping” the cabbage to get all the air out, some salt is added, then the bags are tightly sealed and the fermentation process takes care of itself in the next couple weeks.

This weekend Little Falls will host the big 38th Annual Arts and Crafts Fair. I’m looking forward to seeing my friends who have their boots on the blocks for which I am Block Host. According the Morrison County Record article we have 599 vendors coming for the event. Let us pray for good weather.

Have a good week.

Peace and blessings.

Sister Mary Lou
