Church in the Home
Our little girl has a namesday this week (July 5th) and we will be reading one of our favorite books on Saint Elisabeth the New Martyr. One of the gifts we are giving her is this little figure of Saint Elisabeth hand painted by Sue of In the Loft. I am so pleased with how it turned out and cannot wait for Sugar Plum to see it!
We were away from home this past week and got home quite late on Friday. Needless to say, Saturday was a flurry of laundry, grocery shopping, and tidying. I also forced myself to clean the bathrooms. In recent months, I have begun to clean them on Saturdays after one too many visitors to our church have come through our front door and made a beeline for the potty before realizing that it was a bathroom in the rectory and not one in the church! To be fair, people only enter our house when I forget to lock the door!
Have you seen Poldark on Masterpiece yet? I watched the first episode a week after it aired and loved it! It is the tale of Ross Poldark's return to England after the Revolutionary War to rebuild his life. If you like what you see in the trailer, you can watch the episodes you missed online.

Peach season is here! We will be going out to pick them this week and I cannot wait to eat a ripe, juicy peach right off the tree... complete decadence! I want to make a plum torte this week, but use peaches instead. I have a feeling that it will be wonderful and will report back on my findings!
I've finally found the polish that I will be using for my at-home summer pedicures this year and it is Essie nail polish in Vanity Fairest. I love the delicate color! I am terrible at keeping up with my polish, so this pale color helps to hide that.
