As of Late...

Cleo and I have been enjoying time

together; she's going to really miss me being home

when I start working...

I think I will too; working 5 days a week will be a

big change for me.


FYI, I not only don't have to move for this job,

but I can walk to it!

Super cool in my book :)

Cleo continues to want whatever food

I set out for myself.

She's too funny.

I've been working still on my contract work

and hope to be done soon...

Was really tired after the huge event of

the job offer and acceptance

and have been laying low online...

Still reading everything but sometimes not commenting as much.

Just fatigue and transition...


Went to Greek Fest with two of my good friends

and two of the Sisters at the Greek monastery were there

so I got to ask prayers, tell them I got a job and

been wanting this book on Fr. George for a while;

I strongly recommend it!
Saint Seraphim Wonderworker of Sarov

I am loving this book on St. Seraphim;

I have another one on him

but this new one I got yesterday has pictures and different

details; I love learning more about St. Seraphim and feel

that this book came at the perfect time for me.
The Lives of the Georgian Saints

This book is very beautiful - hard back, dust jacket

glossy pages and colour Georgian style icons;

a real treasure.

I love Saint books very much.


What have you been loving lately?

Just to say hello and wish you a good Dormition fast! I am so pleased for you that the new job is close by - that's worth a lot in itself in terms of peace of mind, not having to move or commute a long way. It's a huge change going back to work, and changes are always tiring even when they are for the better. My job is going to gear up several notches in October - only a few weeks left to get everything ready for the New Era. We'll have to compare notes ;)

Ohhhhhhh the furriness!

I am so glad that both your lives will not be disrupted by having to move across the country for a new job.

How wonderful that you can walk to work! I've never had such a luxury...usually traveling at least 45 min. on highways.

Thank you for the book recommendations; I'm currently reading Tolkien's Silmarillion

I love the Fr. George Calciu book--I felt like I got more of a sense of his life and personality than I had before. And it's both challenging and inspiring.

Maureen said...

I am so glad you now have a job! Good luck

Hello! I finally found your blog again. It's nice to read about what you're up to - congratulations on the job. Just thought I'd pipe up because I have a copy of the Lives of the Georgian Saints and LOVE it.

Yay! I love it.
I giggled at Cleo checking out the soup.

Thanks for answering my question...how lovely to be able to walk to work.

How wonderful that it's so close! What a surprise!

Thanks for the Cleo shots - can't get too much!

Well, first of all, that's a cute photo of Cleo at the table, looks like she thinks she's human. And I agree, it's really GREAT that you can walk to work!!! When do you start?
We went to the week-long St. Seraphim's camp in PA 2 weeks ago and it was wonderful...the children learned of the live of the saint, and so did I. It's really amazing! I love that quote "Acquire the spirit of peace and a thousand around you shall be saved."

Adjusting to a new job will take some time so be patient with yourself. You will no doubt be tired alot, initially, but with time it will pass.

YAAY! for walking to work. Just don't let too many people know because then you'll be expected to take care of everything when no one else 'can get there due to bad weather' or whatever!

I am loving being contented and learning to embroider.
