Daily Journal – May 5

“A day late and a dollar short” is the saying I believe. I am on retreat this weekend and by the time we finished with evening prayer last night, it was too late to think about posting. So, here is yesterday’s post – today.  Each May I attend a Dominican retreat at Rosaryville in Louisiana. It is a beautiful facility with a background steeped in history.  Maybe I’ll do a post on it soon.  Meanwhile,…

A visitor in my own state – A Road Trip down the bayous in Terrebonne Parish, Southern Louisiana

About a year ago, Hubby and I took a road trip (date day) down the bayous of Terrebonne Parish in Southern Louisiana. I had expressed an interest in seeing where the bayous intersected with the gulf.

This past Sunday we headed up the bayou. The…

A tourist in my own town – New Orleans

About a week ago I had my semi-annual check-up at Ochsner Hospital. They have recently switched over from pounds to (is it) kilograms. Can I mention just how much I HATE this system? Just get it over with. Tell me I weigh way too much. Don’t make me convert that lovely LITTLE number into a BIG number on the chart above the scale. I had my blood work done a couple of weeks prior to…
