Monday Quiet and Full

It has been really cold here in Ottawa;

-38 C yesterday walking to church!

I love it though and got to layer up with no less

than 4 scarves!

(It's about a 30 minute walk for me...)

My Christmas tree has been packed away

for another year.

Back to 'normal' as it were.

Last Sunday celebrating Theophany...

Such a beautiful feast!

I finally got some new icons put up on my wall.

St. Spyridon;

and St. John of Suceava

*

Such a blessing.

*

I've been working on a cover letter

and job research.

Of course it always takes longer than you hope for.

*

Am trying to stay at peace during this process.

*

Am going to my friend's for dinner and

will enjoy the company of her two small boys

one of which I will read stories to.

*

Am a bit overwhelmed with all I need to do this week.

But God is with us.

happy monday to you.
I am back from a very successful lightbulb expedition. I am going to have some tea and rest a bit as my back is tired and it is pouring rain.

I like the view. Looks like gingerbread houses with icing. Every time I see your blue walls I want blue walls too but I guess I'll have to be grateful my camera occasionally invents them.

Cuddles to Cleo.

Love this weather too, but I missed church again :-(
Praying that you will have good news soon.

RW - yay for lights... sorry about the rain...

M - thanks! I am happy for my blue walls but I think white is also good; was reading over the story of St. Elizabeth the New Martyr and she had white walls with her icons...

K- thanks. Yes.

Thanks Sarah! I do like my little home... :)
