Monday Musings

The lovely hostess of Monday Musings is taking a little blogging break, but hopefully she won't mind if I keep doing the meme in her absence. 

Right Now:  it is 12:17pm. I've eaten lunch, my house is clean, the chickens are fed, I've showered... life is great.

This weekend: was one of the most productive of my life. I cleaned almost every junk pile in our home (as I've adequately blogged about) and have managed to keep the house spotless for two days. I finally broke down and joined flylady.net. I am sincerely hoping to keep this leaf turned over for the rest of my life. My sink is shining.

On Sunday after Mass we were able to relax in a peaceful clean home and spend some amazing time together, catching up on the LA Times crossword puzzles we missed while out of town and beginning to read Brothers Karamazov aloud to each other. I love Sundays!

Some plans for the week:  I want to get some final curriculum touches together before the school year begins for the girls. I'd like to shred and freeze the zucchini, bake some bread and work to keep my house spotless. There's also a parish picnic and sister-in-law's birthday party to attend, a parish meeting, and a car at the mechanic's in Nowheresville, Idaho left to pick up. It's going to be a busy week!

If I Can Find Some Time for Myself I Want To: start a needlework project... I need to earn some domesticity points.

Special Prayer Intentions:  For the repose of the souls of my Aunt Janice (who has already interceded so much for me!) and Aunt Penny who died this week, and comfort to their families. For the success of all of my husband's daily endeavors. For us to somehow afford all of the major calamities that have hit lately (why after I quit my job?). For our little domestic church.

Something That Makes Me Smile: Looking at the Catholic calendar this week. Seriously... St. Edith Stein, St. Clare, St. Philomena (ok, technically not on the calendar, but who cares?), St. Maximilian Kolbe?! Awesomeness.

Hahahaha, Angele. I just now read the comment you last left on my blog back in May. Yes, I suppose that means you don't need to bother following it anymore! Let's be honest...it was never TERRIBLY interesting to begin with, and certainly not the delightful-to-the-eye, warming-to-the-heart work of art that your blog is. If I had to boil it all down and grossly oversimplify it, school got demanding near the end, and...I got a boyfriend. Such was the death blow dealt my humble blog. It does continue to exist, though, and I'm not saying that I won't get bitten by the blogging bug again at some point in the future. I mean, now that I'm out of school and going to be starting a more adult (shudder) life soon, I just might find that it provides an outlet. :) So in short...I still enjoy reading yours from time to time, and I miss you dearly. I hope the opportunity for us to visit with each other presents itself sometime...It really was a wonderful semester I shared with you in 322 Tommy, and I will have those memories for the rest of my life. :D

I know he's the patron saint of cooking and all, and I saw him on the calendar, and he has my husband's sense of humor, but I've never had much of a devotion to him. I was merely mentioning all of my favorite saints whose feasts were this week :). I DID forget to add St. Dominic, though! (his feast fell on a Sunday this year)
