Crowded Refrigerator

Now that I'm living in a new place, and have a new refrigerator, there isn't as much space for my collection of decorative magnets. So now, I don't display my entire collection at the same time.
Instead, I have only magnets relating to a certain theme on my fridge.  My current theme is
"Food and Drink."
Actually, I could have built an entire collection on that theme alone!

Book Ordered

 Yesterday I ordered  this book  from EWTN's Religious Catalog. 



 It is supposed to be the best book on the life of St. Francis, and I am really looking forward to reading it.

Computer Death

My computer died suddenly a week ago Thursday. No warning, just a blank screen.  There was no funeral.  I was computerless for almost a week, but several days ago,  Pauly, my brother-in-law, got me a new one.  You can imagine how much I appreciated that!  :)
