My Husband and I drove, after liturgy on Friday,
with lunch and a grocery store run,
to Emmaus PA where we went to the lovely
I loved seeing my Husband so happy talking with various
people about books, authors, Tolkien included of course,
poetry, movies, Japan to England, all was discussed :)
A gift and a surprise for me was that a deacon from my church in
Ottawa was there with his daughter and wife!
We had some really uplifting conversations and it really was
a gift for me...
I saw this cute meme (below) today and I found
that my God-given gift of fellowship with ones who know
so many I love in Ottawa was in line with it!
Today is a rest day for me!
While we were so happy that we got home
(we stayed for liturgy, Fr Andrew's serving felt very 'Tolkien' to me,
of course it can easily be said that he is very Viking in stature
so not a big surprise :) it was very nice! ) ...
I met a lovely lady there named Lily who I failed to get contact info for -
but I had mentioned my blog to her. So if you are reading this Lily,
I would love to stay in touch,
you can write me at my blog email here. :)
Oh, the super cute teapot, creamer and tray was at an Antique Mall.
I did not buy it but I love it :)
However, we will see what we find at the VNA rummage sale,
it's this weekend!!! I have been looking forward to this for...well,
(if you are new here, the VNA rummage sale is the mother of all
glorious estate/garage sales and I have found a lot of beautiful dishes,
silver-plate things (silver-ware and teapots, trays...) and I also find stationary
there, beautiful things but so much more affordable!).
I am happy to be back home now, thought my mind was filled
of so many Ottawa memories, I was aching a bit that way;
of course I also still miss my Cleo Cat.
found another two 'a year ago' pictures of her:
Cleo Cat: I still miss you!
It's strange to have her not here, a bit more normal
I guess however, I will always miss her.
I am so glad that God gave Cleo to me for the 13+ years I had her!
I ordered take-out to be delivered and am really grateful for that!
I have a lot to be thankful for.
I pray where ever you are today and what ever your situation,
you can be comforted by thankfulness to God...
