Church in the Home
The Entrance of the Theotokos is on November 21st (Saturday). We'll be reading one of our favorite books, The Story of Mary, the Mother of God, and we'll be setting up our feast day shelf. I'd also like to make a nice lunch for after Liturgy on Saturday.
For the past week or two, I have been enjoying episodes of Foyle's War on Netflix. It has filled the hole that was left when the first season of Home Fires wrapped up. Here's the first episode to whet your appetite:
In My Knitting BasketI cast on to a black version of the Palmyre shawl on Friday and am really pleased with how quickly it is going. This time, I plan on making it a smidge bigger and am eager to see how it turns out. It will be a great staple for my autumn and winter wardrobe.
It seems as if the cool weather is here to stay. As I prepared breakfast this morning, the children filled the little bird feeder outside our dining room window with seed for the feathered friends that visit us all winter. We are planning on tidying up the window boxes and maybe even planting the multitude of daffodil bulbs that we bought in October this week, as well.
While my father-in-law was here for our little Thanksgiving celebration earlier this month, I introduced him to Mrs. Meyer's hand soap. We took a little outing to a shop nearby that sells much of the Mrs. Meyer's line and after smelling every single bottle of soap, we each picked out a couple bottles (which he very generously paid for!). I put my bottle of Bluebell hand soap in our little powder room yesterday and it smells so wonderful!
