June 6: Tom & Sue go to Loyola (and do some shopping as well)

Buenos Dias:
 
The 4 of us did well in the bed last night although 1/2 of our pillows spent most of the night on the floor.  I think we fell asleep that way and didn’t move.  We were still tired at 9 AM when we awoke.  At  11:00, I made eggs and toast and our second pot of coffee.  We weren’t moving fast today, if at all.  We needed a break and 3 nights in this perfect B&B was what the doctor ordered.
 
We needed food since tomorrow was Sunday and everything is closed on Sundays, so we decided to go back to the store we went to yesterday and get what we needed.  The store was in Azpetia, the birthplace of St. Ignatius, and only 15 minutes away. We arrived there just before it re-opened at 3:30, and by the time we walked to the Basilica, the door was open.
 

We lit a candle for your intentions here in Loyola

We went in to say our morning prayers and Divine Mercy, it was cold in  there, so we decided to say the Rosary on the way home. 

We lit a candle  for your intentions and departed for the store.
 

Stocking up on groceries for the next couple of days.

We stocked up for 2 days. We bought some calamari and fettuccine for tonight and a couple steaks for tomorrow. They with both go well with the  salad I was going to make with Rosa’s lettuce. We were home by 5:15 and still exhausted.  Susan typed yesterday’s report as I dictated and cooked.

Dinner came out delicioso, if I do say so myself.  

There was enough left over so we gave it to Rosa and Mike, later she brought us over desert. 

 

Maybe I should learn to read Spanish!

During the cooking, I put laundry in with what I thought was detergent and was surprised when the black socks came out brown and my gray cargo’s are now rust colored. LOL, I  had bought bleach!  The whites came out fine … I had laundered them separately.
 
After dinner we crashed and tonight Susan ended up on the huge sofa since the bed seemed to have shrunk and the body pillows were fighting each other.
 

Buenos Noches with Amor!
 
O most Blessed Virgin Mary, mother of  gentleness and mercy, I, an unworthy sinner, fly to you with sentiments of  confidence and love. I begyou who stood close to your most beloved Son as He  hung upon the cross, graciously to remain near me, a miserable sinner, and  near all priests who throughout the whole Church will offer Holy Mass this  day. By your gracious favor help me to offer a sacrifice which is worthy and acceptable in sight of the most high and undivided Trinity.
Amen.
 
Love Susan and  Tom
