Right now... it is 11:49 and I have a Holy Hour in 11 minutes. Better make this quick!
This weekend... my nephew was baptized! It was probably the most beautiful Baptism I've ever had the privilege to attend. The priest used the extended form of the Rite, which I've never experienced before. It required lots of processions, readings, blessings, and ritual that is always skipped during the shortened form. Should we ever be blessed with children to have baptized, I definitely want to use the long form!
Some plans for the week: Return some clothes I bought two months ago (and have meant to return ever since). Mercifully, they're too big.
I need to pick cherries and send them to my family! I keep waiting for them to reach ultimate ripeness (for the most sugar possible) but at some point it's going to be too late. While I'm at it, I should pick a ton for us and pit and freeze or dehydrate them. I'm not much for canned cherries -- they taste too much like cough syrup to me.
I also want to try my hand at sprouting some radish or broccoli seed (for salads).
If I can find some time for myself, I would like to... start reading and analyzing some of the classics, again. Don Quixote, perhaps?
I am grateful for... my sisters-in-law. They're a fun bunch!
Some prayer intentions for this week: in thanksgiving for a successful cherry harvest.
Something that makes me smile: spending Sunday with my husband. We're a force to be reckoned with when it comes to the LA Time Crossword Puzzle.
Monday Musings are hosted by Nadja.
