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!
