August 15 is not only grandchild #5's birthday, but the Feast of the Assumption of our Blessed Mother into Heaven. What a celebration that must have been when the Mother of Our Lord arrived in heaven! So, in honor of the Feast, here is her Magnificat in song....
I, for my part, happened upon the most delicious flavor of ice cream tonight. Blue Bell's Delta Blues. I had a bowl of it last summer at my sister's house. It is vanilla with blueberries, blueberry sauce and pie crust mixed in. Blue is a Marian color, you know. So I bought the last half-gallon in the freezer case at wally-world and enjoyed some tonight. In honor of the feast, of course!
