Whew, as I knew it would, this week
came hurtling in like a ton of bricks.
I had 2 days in NYC,
including my eye appointment, which I am happy say
went well and my right eye, as myopic as my eyes are, is OK.
I picked up a few more presents in NYC and my list of things to do
is still high...I finished our Christmas card in a 2 hour rush yesterday,
I read over lunch a lovely article about why using good China is
not only that which brings quiet and honour to a guest,
but is deeply linked to how a tradition-based Christian lives out their
Fr Andrew Damick's book,
Orthodoxy and Heterodoxy is proving to be a very enjoyable,
clear and thought-provoking read.
I find it to be both gentle and forthright.
Well, I have a lots of cleaning and paperwork to do today,
I hope to get our Christmas tree up sometime soon,
hopefully next week and I have 2 weeks to get my
St. Nicholas and Christmas baking done...
and a new Church book sale prep and everything else...
This is always my most busy time of year.
Lord have mercy and help me keep the spirit of the
Nativity Fast amidst it all!
