Church in the Home
Today is another Twelve Great Feast, The Elevation of the Cross. Father John made Litya loaves for Great Vespers last night and also decorated the Cross with carnations. It was also the 63rd Ordination Anniversary for our Pastor Emeritus, Father Daniel. Such a special day!
With September nearly halfway over and cooler weather on the way, I have finally placed an order for a new tea kettle. The lid's knob on our last one broke and it was so difficult to use that I gave in and recycled it. It will be nice to have our new one!
Disney's live action Cinderella is being released tomorrow... Sugar Plum and I can't wait!
I am starting to plan my autumn wardrobe (despite the summery temps forecast this week). I tend to be a plain dresser who relies on the same outfits over and over, so last autumn I spiced things up with a few different pairs of dangly earrings. Now that the earrings have become part of my everyday attire, I want to start accessorizing daily with cowls, scarves, and shawls to add a bit of pizzazz. I already have a few favorites... I just have to wear them!

One of our favorite breakfasts this time of year is Apple Pie Oatmeal. It is easy to make lenten by using water rather than milk, and we tend not to brulee the top.
