Last week was a busy one. On the 8th we had Jubilee celebrations. On the Holy Day, the 15th, we celebrated Sister Bernarda’s 99th birthday. Lots of her relatives were here to celebrate with her.
Our Convent gardens are producing lots of fresh tomatoes, green and yellow beans, lettuce, summer squash and raspberries. We’ve also had fresh sweet corn, though Sr. Ruth does not plant corn. We will continue having much more produce. Thank you, gardeners, for all your work. And, moreso, thank you, God, for good rains to water the gardens. Rain water always seems to work better than water from a hose.
Last week Sisters Tonie and Mary Z. put up a display of some of Sister Mary Christine Wiener’s oil and water color paintings. Sr. Christine was a marvelous painter! Here are a few of her works. Enjoy.
There will be no blog next week as I will be in Aurora, Colorado, for the wedding of our nephew, Jon Samuelson, on the 26th. Please pray for safe travel for all of us. Thanks.
Peace and blessings,
Sister Mary Lou
