Busier Than it Was Supposed to Be...
Great Lent has been busier than I envisioned it being on Forgiveness Sunday. The biggest challenge is that we have embarked on a painting project in the church (which I am very excited about! What we had was not working)... we are a week in and hope to finish the main color painting (saving faux marble painting and other hand painted designs for later). So far, we have succeeded in selecting several of the colors we plan to use. There will be a few more color decisions to make tomorrow (hopefully!) and in truth, I find this part of the process incredibly tedious.
The painting project, along with lessons, classes outside of our home, deep cleaning, etc., have made things a bit crazy. One of the ways that I am coping is to indulge in some lengthy reading every day. Very uncharacteristically, I have two books I'm working on right now: Sidney Chambers and the Forgiveness of Sins and Middlemarch (which I am listening to on my phone while I clean and knit). I am attempting to read 52 books this year and am off to a good start! It is nice to keep a record of what I have read... I might do this for my knitting projects, too!

I thought the same her as well. I thought once we got through clean week things would settle down but we are still adjusting to our new routine. I would love to see a list of what you read and what you plan on reading.
It is just as crazy busy here too. With the extra church services, my mothers birthday, deep cleaning, now my son is having some health issues and we've been going to doctors and labs and xrays - whew. The only benefit of it all is that we are spending a LOT of time in the car driving and this has given me the chance to listen to Pilgrims Progress on CD. I've had it for a year and have been waiting for a chance to listen to it.
