I read the greatest tweet this week about the current state of weather reporting:

So true, Mr. Hall! So very true!
Speaking of the weather, I’ve been doing my utmost not to complain about it. I did however break down this week and complain about the weather complainers.
Obviously, I’m one of those crazies who doesn’t mind cold weather. But I’m not as crazy as some… Take my father, for instance. The man took a bit of a tumble a few weeks ago while cross country skiing and went out skiing the following week in spite of slightly bruised ribs and a sore wrist. According to him, he had to take advantage of the 7 degree warm and sunny day. Now that’s a lot bit crazy if you ask me.
I can’t tell you how revitalizing it has been being back at the barre!
I feel like a new person today after a fantastic class last night!
Catching my breath under the barre.
See here for more photos of Muffin’s first and second ballet classes.
“Central to the Catholic Faith is the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. But these days, the reasons why we go to church—both to commemorate Christ’s Sacrifice and to participate in it—have been overshadowed by modern elements. Music that takes away from the sacredness of the Liturgy instead of complementing it, more importance placed on Father’s homily than on his role in the Eucharistic Sacrifice, tabernacles that are hidden from sight, taking away the crucifix and kneelers, and an emphasis on the community “meal” have all clouded the true beauty and purpose of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
What if we brought back all that is beautiful, reverent, and sacred in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass?“
Mmmm… That’s a question I ask myself every Sunday…
Be sure to read the rest of Terry’s thoughts on the subject.
Well, the 2014 Quadrille Ball was a success! I’m both glad and sad it’s all over.
