There and Back Again

I and Mr. Husband were able
to return to Ottawa for a short time
We just got back last night!

We had festive Church celebrations...
I had wished I could of worn my own
festive outfit,
but it was too cold! 

The church was beautifully adorned!
It was a beautiful time of liturgy, prayer and celebration! 
Mr. Husband and I for our first anniversary
were at the Greek Monastery in Quebec.
It was relaxed, peaceful and quiet.
We are rushing towards the Liturgical new year now.
Many things are coming ~
we are starting a book club,
By October I hope to be doing another class on knitting
and today has been cleaning,  laundry, unpacking
suitcases, making up grocery lists and
settling back in.
I am thinking of learning to sew...
I am hoping to go back to Ottawa again in the future,
as my godson is almost 2 now and I really wish to be
present in his life, not to mention the lives of my friends
and Ottawa church family.
At the same time I am hoping to do more for my local church
and continue to build relationships with the wonderful
people I have in my life here in NJ with Mr. Husband.
I am slowly seeking to change some of my habits as
year two of marriage is now upon us.
Less, much less, time on facebook.
Less time on the computer.
This is my goal.
More reading, learning crafts and making our home beautiful
for the purpose of our Christian life and for hospitality.
So that's what is going on for me,
what is going on for you?
