Sep. 1, 2013 - Sunday Jinx, Cardboard Cutout, & 2 Nephi 6
September 1, 2013 - Sunday - Rough day. Woke up at about 3:30 this morning with a gruesome headache, a fever, aching joints, and a horrid sore throat. What is that all about? Just as I started to feel good from last Sunday's little episode. I am starting to feel like Sunday is jinxed. I spent most of the day resting and sleeping. I even turned on the TV for a little and watched a bit of Animal Planet. I wanted to read, (basa) but my head aches too much. I know that there were a couple of people in the office who were sick last week. I think this may be a continuation of whatever they decided to share. Miserable. Sorry to be so negative. I hope that every weekend does not end up like this. I can't do 70 plus weekends feeling messed up. Biggest challenge in this difficult climate is making sure to drink enough and not get dehydrated even if you don't feel like drinking. This Sunday thing is just a fluke and it will all be ok.
Sister Doig said my 3' cardboard person was a hit with the kids in Primary. They wanted to know it's name and whether it was a boy (lalaki) or a girl (babae) and why it did not have eyes and ears and a nose. Only a mouth. She was trying to teach them the song "I Know Heavenly Father Loves Me". It talks about the idea that Heavenly Father (Ama sa Langit) gave us eyes to see, ears to hear etc. When they sang it she added the missing features. She said it kind of freaked out some of the kids. I wonder if there is some superstition or idea that she was in conflict of. In this culture you don't always know if you are treading in sensitive areas.
I guess if she was she will hear about it next week.
I was hoping if I rested all day I would be all better by tonight. Not so. Just wishful thinking. Throat is more sore than this morning and I still have a fever and a headache. I think my bed is calling me some more. I hate night time here. It's simply too hot to sleep comfortably even with the air conditioning on.
READ ALONG WITH SISTER O’REILLY
2 Nephi 6
This entire chapter is narrated by Jacob - the younger brother of Nephi - who speaks to the people in a serious fashion. He discusses another Isaiah chapter. Thank heavens this chapter is one that is a bit easier to understand. It's a very important subject - the Savior.
I have to go to bed so this will be put off until I feel better. Sorry. The writing is not very interesting tonight.
New Tagolog words
- babae = girl
- lalaki = boy
- Ama sa Langit = Father in Heaven
- basa = read
Have a lovely Sabbath in your part of the world. Be good and kind and loving. I love you and miss you more than ever right now. Take care.
Hugs and all, Sister (Miss Kate) O'Reilly

Nowadays, many patients become confused when trying to get medications online because they don't know what is existing. To buy remedies online from a respectable web-site is safe. There are only couple of examples. Nowadays thousands articles were published about http://sildenafil-generic.biz/. Did read something about "sildenafil generic"? The extremely substantial aspect you must look for is "generic sildenafil". Sometimes men take more medicines later in life and some have sexual side effects that result in impotence. Some of medicaments fuel sex drive. If you buy any recipe medicaments like Viagra, check with a health care vocational that they are foolproof to take with your other medications. However, with reputable drugstore you get confidence in knowing that your order is being handled by reputable doctors and that your info is safe.
