Today was the first great feast of the Liturgical year. Normally, we have church services on the eve of the feast and then again on the day of the feast, but because Father John is still recovering from his surgery, we only had an Akathist for The Nativity of the Mother of God this morning. I made a carrot cake for dessert tonight to celebrate the feast... I always think of carrot cake as a good early autumn treat.
Kate and I are making such good progress on our chambray skirts! She cut everything out yesterday while I made dinner and then once the little ones were in bed, we ironed and finished the pieces and started putting the pockets and fronts together. Today was spent finishing up everything else except the hemming! I can't wait to wear these gorgeous things!
