I've been binging on North and South. I'm not sure what made me want to start to re-watch it, but I finished all four episodes while we were down with the stomach bug last week and then started to read the book again. I have been watching the best parts while I knit each night. Needless to say, I'm getting a lot done on my cowl!
It is hard to believe that it is already Zacchaeus Sunday and that there is only about a month before Great Lent starts. There are so many favorite feasts coming up! We'll be baking some Irish Soda Bread, making Saint Brigid's Crosses, and reading Saint Brigid: Abbess of Kildare for February 1st. I'll have to remember to buy candles this week for the Meeting of the Lord (next Monday) so that they can be blessed after the Liturgy... maybe we'll even roll some with sheets of beeswax.
I made my menu plan and grocery shopping list yesterday evening in a rush when I thought that there would be snow heading our way on Monday and Tuesday. When I found out that it was only going to rain, I abandoned the idea of shopping tonight in favor of a dish of ice cream on the couch. I'll get everything tomorrow after we finish up our lessons. It's nice to relax after a long day!
