This Week... Remember the canvas I shared last week? Here it is with more layers. The white "distressing" was fun to play with. This is finished... I think?!
In the Roman Catholic Church-- Celebrating the Feast Days of Saint John of Damascus, Father of the Church, Saint John of Capistrano, and Saint Benjamin the Deacon & Martyr. And Easter JOY is just two weekends away!
At Home-- We turned the clocks forward here the previous weekend, and getting used to the different time. While we're enjoying the longer days, and extra-long light, we're still lighting candles in the evening.
Out & About-- Early in the week I had the great pleasure of being invited to attend the monthly meeting of a local arts & crafts guild, and where a lovely lady, Gro Flåten, who has a floral business (Gro's Bakgård...Gro's Backyard) here in our town, came and demonstrated decorations to make using spring flowers and nature-walk finds... HUGELY inspiring and VERY FUN!
On the Menu-- I composed another delicious winter-style salad. This one with Bartlet pears, slivers of pickled red beets, Brie cheese & walnuts on a bed of mixed greens with a sweet chili dressing. Meals this week have been lighter, "cleaner"....Crispy Tofu with Broccoli in Ginger Sauce, Black Bean Burrito Nourish Bowls, Fish Cakes with Pickled Red Onion & Lite Cole Slaw, Vegetable Pizza...
Reading-- Finishing books for March, as well as other Lenten reading.
Listening-- Times when I've not able to get to church to participate in Stations of the Cross/The Way of the Cross during Lent, I've been praying at home and listening to this beautiful audio of The Stations of the Cross, according to St. Francis, which also includes text to follow along with while listening, and artwork images.
Watching-- The BBC's well made newer dramatization of the life of the Bronte sisters, To Walk Invisible.
Creating-- The yarn/fiber projects grow... and are outgrowing the baskets they live in when I'm not working on them! The Ocean Ripple blanket has more waves added to it. And the new Joyful Shawl is much longer... haha-- this also has a ripple-y pattern!
Inspiration-- Allrecipes.com ...I'm hunting some easy recipe/menu ideas for Easter brunch. Do you know what you're serving for Easter yet?
Luna-- Our sweet girl... *sigh* ... (Not tired of Luna pics yet, are you?!)
** This weekend, from today really, I will be online/available less as I attend a 3-day "in-house" Lenten retreat at church, which I am very much looking forward to! So I may be slow to reply to email, comments, visit, etc. I will be back here Monday morning, and to share the list for the Springtime Mail Exchange participants. If you'd like to sign up, please do during the weekend now--you still can!**
How was your week? Wishing you all a LOVE-ly weekend now! :)))
