I need new vegan creamer... this morning tea needed a bit of umph
and my creamer, it seems, is past due in age... hopefully will get one soon :)
Swimming today... was good... I love being in water and in the sunshine...
and my sweet Husband got some Kombucha for me in NYC.
I ended up not going into NYC today, needed to be home.
It meant that I got to talk to my sister-friend and that was quite lovely,
and most needed!
After 2 years, I FINALLY got the lampadas (oil lamps by icons)
totally cleaned - oil changed out, each saucer and lampada clean,
lots of new (or strained with cheese cloth) oil in them.
I had them all lit today.
Some were long overdue; it's just with last summer's bedrest and then the rest of the this
year having so many varied difficulties + travel,
I was never able to do them.
So I am so very glad they are now clean.
Isn't that quotation wonderful?
It's from the Healing Presence book.
I finally got our home more or less clean and less cluttered.
That's a relief.
I've been tired today, feeling a bit wrung out,
as if yesterday was spent weeping and today
was the day after, with that tired emotionally drained feeling.
But I know that I can have better days ahead.
Grief means adjusting to 'new normal' and I do have some
new grieving to do and that will take time.
But I am also determined to find thankfulness,
for I have more blessings than troubles and when I look at
my pictures of my days, I see so many blessings.
My Husband was a sweetheart and picked up
takeout for dinner...
That was a real blessing to me!
I am hoping for a weekend with church family and
more tea, quietness and preserving a now clean home...
of course more clean laundry needs to be put away and more washed...
but the kitchen is much cleaner, dishes are no longer piled up
(I did 2 loads yesterday and 1 the night before and 1 today...)
And I am so very thankful for all of this.
