This Week... Oh, the LIGHT! We've had a taste of summer this week with warmer temperatures and sunshine. After some weeks of rainy days, waking up to this light--BLISS!
In the Roman Catholic Church-- At the top of the week, Sunday was Trinity Sunday, the celebration of the Trinity--the holy mystery of God in three divine beings... WOW! During the week there's been Feast Days for St. Anthony of Padua and St. Basil the Great. Sunday coming up is the wonderful Feast of Corpus Christi, celebrating the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God--the joy of the Eucharist!
At Home-- I've been at home quite a lot, as I've been battling migraine headaches off and on most of the week. So I've been online less, and other things have been shuffled in favor of rest. So I'm a bit behind in catching up with everyone...
I did manage a few things though, including the fun of the beginnings of a handmade journal. I chopped up a block of water color paper to make into book pages, using a worn out quilting cutting mat and old rotary cutter for cutting and trimming. This journal will be for a special summer project. More on that coming up... The summer solstice is next week--summer is here! :)))
On the Menu-- Homemade bread...it's so good! I'm still doing lots of experimenting with different bread recipes and techniques. So far our favorite loaves have been made using a no-knead overnight dough (like this one) and baked in an enameled cast iron casserole pot with lid. (Ours is like this one--we have the 24cm/10-inch in cerise-red--and use it for all sorts, not just baking--best pot we have!)
Happy-- There's been such beautiful afternoon/evening light too. And sometimes a brief rain shower gracing us with rainbows.
In the Garden-- Dreaming of garden additions... Here's a little watercolor sketch I made as we consider a new English cottage garden-style flower bed. Maybe... maybe... ??!!
Creating-- A new project is on the hook. It's to be a garment. And it's a bit of a learning curve right now, so I will share more soon...
LUNA-- I put our favorite summer linen tablecloth on the table in the dining room. Not long after I did that, our little fur-angel tested it out. Does it provide enough "tent" factor for a hide out?? hhhmmm... I guess it worked. She fell asleep under there! haha... Can you see her little pink nose peeking out??!! Oh, this girl... the sweetness is never ending...
Weekend-- Our power will be off for many hours today as we have an electrician coming who will be doing some big work converting our old fuse box into a more current standard. Tomorrow we will--hopefully, if I'm feeling up to it--have a day out & about. So I will be offline much of the weekend now... but will catch up with you early next week!
How was your week? Wishing you all a LOVE-ly weekend now! :)))
