My new home in pictures

Cleo is doing well.
Cat sitter is being arranged for
the time of the wedding, etc.

I made a beautiful table for the Dormition fast.
I was given many beautiful things as
shower and wedding gifts
and it was a delight to make a table for
the two of us to eat and celebrate the feasts with.

I am loving the new buffet icon corner.

Made this new kitchen small icon corner
and really love it.
Got the candle stand at IKEA in Ottawa
and am using rice to place
the monastery bees wax candle in.
Really love this also.

I am finding the living/dining room to be
very cozy and comforting with
all the soft light and icons.

My Orthoman bought these ground cherries
at a local farmer's market on his way
home yesterday.
They are in neat little shells.
Here they are newly peeled.
They are small and sweet.
I continue to get a lot of
work done on the new place.
I am dreading again going back to Ottawa
as now my Cleo Cat will stay behind
and I am slowly losing a lot of my
So much to do...
I am praying I do not get sick...
Keep waking about 5 or so AM
so am quite tired.
God is with us.

Your new home is looking wonderful - you must have been working like Trojans to get all that done in such a short time !
Prayers continue for the three of you as things become busier as the wedding approaches. God bless you all !
