Church in the Home
It is hard to believe that we only have ten more days until the feast of Saints Peter and Paul. We will be able to celebrate with my father-in-law's church (it is their patronal feast-day), so it will be extra special!
Our house has been a bit neglected these past few weeks with the end of school, over night guests, and travel), and I intend to set things right this week. I plan to work my way through the house over this coming week. Honestly, cleaning is not my favorite activity, but the result is always worth the effort.
I saw the preview for the documentary, Iris, a few weeks ago. Doesn't she seem like a trip? I love seeing how people live and this seems like it would be so much fun to see.
Kitchen, Pantry, and Table
We had a few minutes to duck into the National Museum of American History while we were in D.C. this week and were able to view Julia Child's kitchen. It was amazing and I am very thankful that I was able to really soak it all in while my husband manned the camera. He got some great pictures that I will be able to enjoy looking through.
I'm nearly finished knitting a small version of the Fantoosh Shawl and am starting to think about what will be next on my needles. I was very pleased with the Stone Cottage pullover sweater that I knit in the late winter and am tempted to start another. It seems odd to think about knitting something like this when it is so hot outside, but I think that I will be very happy to have a second cozy sweater to snuggle into when November blows in. The question is, what color should I pick?
