Living and Learning: The Week Ahead


Church in the Home
A few years ago Laura created a one page printable life of Saint Mary of Egypt that we loved using prior to attending The Canon of Saint Andrew with the Life of Saint Mary of Egypt.  Print some out for your family and bring a few to church to pass out!

Did you know that you can listen to the BBC Radio radio through the computer or through their free phone app?  I only found out last week and am already addicted!  My favorite program so far is Radio 3's Classical Breakfast show.  It's two and a half hours of music and educational tidbits.  I start in in the morning and listen to it at various intervals during the whole day.

In the Post
Lucy from Purl Two Together has outdone herself yet again!  I bought a ready-made tea cosy from her shop for my sister a few weeks ago and was so taken with it, I ordered a custom made one for myself.  It arrived today and I just love it!  If you are in the market for some hand-knits, pop over to her etsy shop!

Last night I stayed up late to watch To Walk Invisible.  I've been on a Charlotte Bronte kick since reading Jane Eyre last Great Lent and became fascinated by her life story.  Though the Bronte's story is a tragic one, I enjoyed this program very, very much.

In My Knitting Basket
I'm at the tail end of my Lenten Knit-A-Long project!  There are less than ten rows left of the lace portion of my Farmhouse White Palmyre Shawl and then I can bind off and block.  I can't wait to finish it!

Our Second Annual Pysanky Workshop


Thanks to one of our parishioners who is a talented pysanky egg maker, our church held our second pysanky egg workshop after Liturgy on Annunciation.  The children all had a lovely time and the adults who attended even got a little time to make some eggs of their own.  I decided to try to give my eggs in one color using onion skins.  I ended up needing to use the regular dye to achieve the vibrant red that I was going for in the end.  I'm planning to give the eggs to my parents the next time I see them!

Cross Stitch Sampler

Our little girl has been working on this little cross stitch sampler this week and I just love it!

Twelve Minutes to Spare


We took a little trip on Monday for my husband to attend a conference and for me to help my mother and sister with a few things.  I decided to challenge myself to finish the body of my Palmyre shawl before we returned home from this little getaway.  I finished up with twelve minutes to spare!  Now on to the lace...

Happy, Happy Birthday!

Happy, happy birthday to my beloved better half! He left for a conference at 6:30 this morning and came back at 10:30 tonight. Our son's dear godmother knew that today would be a difficult day for us to bake him a cake (we are away from home), so she kindly visited a Lenten/vegan bakery, bought him a delicious chocolate birthday cake, and dropped it off this afternoon for us to surprise him with. Isn't that amazing?
