My goodness, what a weekend!
The Octoberfest went really well. Once again, my official photographer (my sister-in-law) has taken some glorious pictures. When I get some, I'll share. We ended up with a GLORIOUS weather day, despite the weather forcast that promised rain. Dear St. Scholastica came through again!!
After party Saturday, which lasted until 11:30 p.m., we had church on Sunday with our usual meal afterward, then many people ended up coming over after that. We had lots of left-overs, and the place still looked festive, and many worthy conversations were had by all. Also, my brother and sister-in-law came to visit from California, and will be leaving later today. A full house, I tell you!! Lots of food and talking, and laughing, lots of laughing.
I have managed to stay on top of the kitchen, and it looks fairly decent considering the abuse it took this weekend. One thing I was not able to stay on top of was the laundry, as my washer bit the dust Saturday morning. The repair place says it's not worth fixing. So, I have a request from you, dear readers::
If you were to replace your washer, which is no small investment these days, what kind would you buy? Any advice, input, or intimate knowledge about washers out there? This is a big investment, and I have very little time to make the decision, before clothes will be cascading out the door and windows around here. HELP!
So, I will leave you for now, because I still have guests and I still have school to teach, and I must enjoy my mandatory dispensation from laundry. I will be working on my "Good Shepherd" icon again today, and will ask Him to bless and keep you all in His tender care.
