Wordy Wednesday

Okay, here's the news:
Mama had hamm this week and I got some. Yea!!!!!!
She wented downtown yesterday, and bought something called puppy pads. Puppy???
She wented to her meeting last night and camed home later than usual. She said she was caught by the president of the resident council and he likes to talk and talk and talk and talk.
She finally yawned (impolitely, I might add) several times and said she had to get upstairs and get some sleep. Rude for humans? Yes. The only way to escape this talker? Yup.
She founded out that someone else is going to be making the snacks for the movies, and they are having real popcorn like in the theatre. She doesn't have to worry about it!
She also volunteered to give two matinees a month for foreign films since there are so many cultures and languages in the building.
And today is annual inspection day. Hope we do okay.
That's the news.  Oh, yea. She's having problems with one of her hearing aids, and will probably have to take it to the clinic soon.
I hope efurryone has a nice Ash Wednesday. What are your beans giving up for Lent? Anything?
Just make sure that they don't volunteer to give your treats up! Not fair!
Love,
brandi

Sounds like you are having a fun time. Did you know it is still snowing on your blog? xx

Yes, we know it is snowing on our blog. We're still in the "snow zone" in Minnesota, with at least flurries coming this week. It snowed overnight a couple of nights ago.
Not much though.

Ash Wed and mom hasn't decided what to sacrifice for Lent. A bit behind the ball, isn't she?

Mom has a quote from her "Magnificat" magazine that helps her keep perspective:

Giving Up vs Self Denial
As you are fasting or skipping some personal refreshment or entertainment, pray for those who do not have the luxury of giving up anything.

Ham! You got HAM! Oh gosh, that sounds good. Hope you don't have to give it up for Lent!

Your pal, Pip

I don't know Brandi - those puppy pads sound like bad news.

Oooooooooooo!! Good that you got ham ;) heehee
Good too that someone else is looking after treats!
We do not think you need to worry about not getting treats :) We are sure that is one thing your Mom loves to do :)
