Liturgy was a real blessing and encouragement!
Vespers for the Feast of Transfiguration!
Since we go to a new calendar and old calendar church,
but do everything on the old calendar,
I forgot that tomorrow is the feast and had something
scheduled since July for me tomorrow in NYC so
I will miss it... so it is...
just so much going on that
I can't always keep everything
My craft closet has been bugging me... too disorganized and messy!
Well, this afternoon I took out all of my
craft paper/cards/stationary/stamps/craft supplies for kids crafts boxes
and had them on our island and kitchen table,
while my Husband wrote cards,
and it was a pretty impressive mess but I got a bunch of gallon sized
zipper plastic bags and organized cards into categories, writing with a sharpie marker.
I know there are probably fancier ways to do this, but this way I spent
no more money on organizing boxes etc and got the project done!
Now Christmas/Birthday/Thank you/other Holidays/blank cards/stationary/post cards
are all organized by type and easy to get to in boxes!
While I was doing all this, I had a white bag with pens in it,
that I had on the dining room table and Mr Husband looked at it and
then I looked more carefully and there they were,
my three fountain pens that I used in my early 20s in my undergraduate years
at TWU in BC Canada back in the late 1990s... 20 years ago now...
I had been missing these pens and actually looked to buy a fountain pen but did not see
any I liked when I was looking and wishing that I knew where mine were...!
So I was very happy to find these!
A bonus was that the reorganization made some boxes free to be reused and I have
fabric that needs proper housing so this will work well
and help the closet to become much more usable!
Ironically, this organization means that the card I meant to make today
did not happen, but at least now future card writing will be easier.
And between some pens I bought (before finding my fountain pens) and
my fountain pens, I will be well stocked for writing in journals and
cards and letters... so that is a blessing!
I am really wishing I could get back to crafting (essay writing/research/sewing)
but life has a way of keeping me from that, but at least I am doing something
and also reading... books are such a blessing...
And we have a lot of church (local) this week and that also is
something I am grateful for.
