Yesterday was a butterfly paperwork day - and this morning we posted the Membership packages. It was a stormy day - the remnant of Hurricane Joaquin finally reached us. My field service partner rang up to say she had had a really bad night, as I did. Neither of us is young, or in particularly good health. So we cancelled.
I did get out this afternoon, but only for half an hour as it suddenlybegan to pour with rain. I drove back along the coast, and the sea was wild and wonderful.
It was a good half hour though. Both of the Care Homes took more magazines and I can deliver next month. And I found two of my magazine route calls at home. I hadn't managed to find them in for months. One is a lovely, but very young and exhausted, mother of two. She says she does read some of the articles in the magazines, and I said a little about the 3 important questions in October's Awake - important to see how the Bible answers them.
The other is a busy Philippino nurse who works shifts. She was at home, but on the phone to her fiance, so I only managed to say a couple of words. But she seemed happy enough to get the magazines.
Captain Butterfly has decided we need red meat - we are both very tired - so we had a steak for supper. He had most of it, but I managed to get a small bit down with a lot of mustard and fried onions. I really don't like red meat much. Except for when Jackie cooks us a roast lamb dinner. Then its brilliant, and I can eat loads. She says she will cook us one the next time we come for supper.
