Living and Learning: The Week Ahead...
Church in the Home
This Friday is the feastday of one of my favorite saints, Saint Martin of Tours. We are really looking forward to our little lantern walk through the woods and the taste of the first clementines of the year. To read more about our celebrations, you can check read my posts from years past: 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, and 2010
On My Wishlist
Little Women is one of my favorite works, and I just found out today that The Annotated Little Women was released earlier this month. I enjoyed looking at some of the sample pages on Amazon and am adding it to my wishlist!
I really love when my sisters suggest new people for me to follow. Last week, Kate, mentioned the blog Mandarine's. In addition to her wonderful blog, Melody has a lovely Instagram account and podcasts on YouTube to enjoy.
In the Kitchen
It is hard to believe, but the Nativity Fast is nearly upon us! On November 15th (a Sunday this year), Orthodox Christians will start preparations for Christmas by fasting from meat and dairy products. I am hoping to make a few favorite foods these next few days to use up the things that we have that are not fasting-friendly. I am also planning on making a tidy little menu plan and corresponding grocery list this week so that we are not caught unprepared on Sunday after Liturgy with nothing in the larder for lunch!
I am thisclose to casting off on my Audrey hat, but am saving the last bit for tomorrow. I don't want to make another blunder at the very end! It will be nice to have finished something... I have had very few of those lately. Our daughter has been working on a little rabbit and I can't wait to show you photographs of that!
