Lots going on in these November days.
Saturday quilt guild, a lovely wedding ceremony of friends, vespers
Sunday liturgy, lunch, nap, walk, chili from a neighbour (so good!)
corn bread muffins the blue paper stained them! (not good!)
I also did more sewing of buttons (reinforcing) of my red coat that I got
on a very very good sale last year in MI when visiting my +Aunt Karen...
Today cleaning the house and piles of laundry, reading, a short nap, dinner preparation.
Also home things including switching out sugar bowls to pretty organic (on sale) sugar...
I baked cookies Friday (after sewing adventures)
and on Friday I got three unexpected treasures!
A book (again, I am guessing a poor cover though very vintage),
a very encouraging card, pictures of Cornwall and lovely bookmark
that about made me cry from Elizabethd (thank you so much!)
and a lovely washcloth and card from my longtime friend K...
and then today I got another DE Stevenson book (also from UK) and two beautiful
small cloth panels from a monastery friend who got them in Alaska!
So I feel like God is showering me with blessings...
we are still in early days of seeing if the hope for better re: our unbloggable situation
will work out and are praying... I feel like God is giving me gifts to encourage me
along the way, which is a blessing I do not discount.
Tomorrow I have a friend over, Wed my Husband works from home,
Thursday liturgy and NYC and Friday home...
So a busy time.
I have my Thanksgiving dinner ordered!
Well, time to prepare dinner, finish laundry and welcome my Husband
home from another day in NYC.
May God have mercy on us all!
