Friday morning blessings
Friday, August 03, 2018
We got a real doozy of a storm last night. It was complete with gale force winds, thunder, lightning, and huge sheets of rain so thick, I could not see DD car parked in our driveway! IT sounded like a tornado, but it was just the rain falling so hard on the roof!
I have all the errands run, but made sure to make that deposit into one of my CD's. I won another $50, so that tells me that a lot less people kept making deposits in this particular CD, since they draw your name among everybody in our diocese that makes a deposit, every week.
For me to win so often, I think many have just stopped adding in, or withdrew their funds. I could care a lot less, since I keep winning. It is just another little drop of $$ to add to our vacation fund!
We finally went over the list of supplies to take with us. IT may sound like we are just cheapos that could just as easily buy things we need when we get up there, but there is one little, tiny pole barn of a grocery store there, which closes its' doors at 5 p.m. They only have two bar/restaurants that serve past 5 p.m. and they are horrible and crowded. The closest store is about an hour's drive on two lane roads with bear, moose, deer, coons, possums, etc that can jump out on the road without warning. We prefer to just relax and enjoy our cabin, campfire and Lake Superior.
