Wow! Absolutely breathtaking, Prayerful! A real treasure. Thank you for the pictures.
I am sorry for the times I have publicly criticized others on this forum, especially traditional Catholic religious, and any other scandalous posts and pray that no one reads or believes these false and ignorant statements.

Shearling bomber jacket. It's been cold here in MS, and I've always wanted one.

The St Judge Sunday missal, a small missal issued by the Claretian Fathers of the National Shrine of St Jude. First it is neat little booklet covering Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation, but the reason for purchase is the various prayers to St Jude including a litany, various prayers, and what they call the Prayer in Trials which is the same as the Dublin diocesan form of the prayer I once linked here. The prayer on the reverse of that card, a sort of litany, approved by the Archdiocese of Dublin in 1957, has most of its elements in one of the Claretian prayers.
Padre Pio: Pray, hope, and don't worry. Worry is useless. God is merciful and will hear your prayer.

A new doll for my collection. She's a Waldorf doll, but a larger one than normal. I love these dolls, they're so adorable. They also have a cult following so I was lucky to be able to get my hands on this one, since they're made by hand only a few times a year. http://imgur.com/gallery/tzQ60BP

Sort of in the category of buying, but it was a craigslist curb alert. In this case, a lovely cul-de-sac in a nice neighborhood. I got a bunch of perfectly sized canvasses already primed by someone's expensive hobby!  And some expensive bird feeders.  It's a miracle  ;D

I love my bird section of the yard. Nice find.

I bought a McDonalds double-cheeseburger.  They are very good value on the saver menu (in the UK).

Most of the shops in the UK have been closed since the bastard politicians locked everything down.  I occasionally (once every 2 months) like going into McDonalds for a cheeseburger (about the only thing I like in McDonalds).

They said you could order one on their stupid app. (with click and collect) but I cannot be arsed.  I do not have a mobile phone contract, just pay-as-you-go and I do not want all the faffing about so I waited.

Anyway, last weekend I noticed that the restaurant was open so I went in.  I got stopped by the mask gestapo at the door but said I was exempt and they let me through (seemed a bit grudgingly but hey-ho).

It probably does not merit a post but I felt like a bit of a rant.

Bought an ESEE-4 (knife) a while ago. Been waiting for the weather to abate so I can chop some trees with it. Used it to skin my deer and it was more than up to the task. Planning on going outside today so that should be fun. :)

That's what I generally get when I go through the drive-through at McDonald's too.  Yeah best value at just over $2 here.  They advertise them here as all Canadian beef with no additives, so what to heck eh.  Why not.

Anyone try the chicken McMuffin? So darn good. I may or may not buy one every Sunday after Mass.  ::)

Bought a nice dress for Sunday Mass, as well as some literature on homeschooling.

Oh and my latest adventure at McDonald’s I ended up with a spicy chicken sandwich. The sauce was lovely.

I haven't happily eaten mcdonalds since I was a fat little kid.  The last time I did was half my lifetime ago as a teenager, and it made me sick to my stomach, reminding me why I don't eat there, and to never to do so again.

There's no Mickey Ds within walking distance, so for me a chipper, Italian run like has traditionally been the case in Dublin at least. Not for Lent, though.

I probably mentioned it, but maybe not. Got a Universal Daily Missal from 1966. The pray for the reception of Communion is now Corpus Christi answered by Amen, no prayers at the foot of the altar. The Latin ordinary seems to be called the 'Rite of Sung Mass' and the English 'Rite of Low Mass.' Otherwise it's identical to the Fr Sylvester Juergens S.M. missal, the New Marian Missal with nearly identical art outside of the text of the Mass, some of the bigger pieces of artwork gone, otherwise identical texts, as of 1956 and 1962. A St Joseph's Missal from two years later, still has the Mass, with Latin in small brackets, the traditional calendar, but the four Eucharistic prayers of the New Mass.
