From time to time, a day will just feel like it never gets traction, and today was one of those days for me. The main culprit, I think, was a healthcare appointment for Brenda that took the better part of three hours, way longer than we anticipated. On either side of that, I did manage to flesh out a homiletical message statement for the Last Sunday after Epiphany (St Paul’s, Pekin) into a developed outline, and make significant progress on the exorcism liturgy project. Processed a few emails. That one’s coming in for a landing soon. It was Brenda’s birthday, so we ordered carry-out gourmet hamburgers for dinner (since little Hattie is not available to be out at adult dinnertime).
