Living and Learning: The Week Ahead...


Church in the Home
August 1st begins the Dormition Fast for those of us in the Orthodox Church.  I love this Dormition calendar that Laura created.  It is a wonderful tool to help our little ones keep track of the days during this two week fast.

Kitchen, Pantry, Table
My friend, Kathleen, made a lovely bowl of Marinated Beet Salad to share for coffee hour this week.  It was gobbled up pretty quickly and I decided to make some for our family this week.  The recipe was created by Alice Waters and Kathleen added a bit of mint to jazz it up.    

On My Bedside Table
I'm in the midst of reading A Country Child by Alison Uttley and enjoying it so much!  It reminds me a lot of my beloved Miss Read.

Have you seen the trailer for Florence Foster Jenkins yet?  I cannot wait for it to be released on August 12th!

I had not even heard of Florence Foster, I am in tears watching the trailer. I cannot wait. I always love your book and show reviews. Thank you!

Thanks for sharing the preview. I didn't know they were making a movie about Florence Foster Jenkins but I must see it. I hope it plays in my area!

Oooo - hadn't heard of Florence Foster Jenkins! Love the cast - but how did they make Hugh Grant look older than Meryl? Excited to go see this! :)
