Happy Feast of the Epiphany!
It has been a glorious Christmas as we have settled into life in Vermont. Phil has had the past 10 days off and we have just spent it doing fun things together as a family and relaxing. It has been a welcome reprieve from the amazingly busy summer and fall. We were involved in so much in Green Bay that the days literally flew by! We are now ready to jump back into daily life in Vermont - school and work start again tomorrow - and see how the Lord calls us to service in our new home.
Today we celebrated the Epiphany by attending Mass at Christ the King Parish, eating our traditional King's bread (with pennies baked inside), marking the doorway with blessed chalk and with a special French Silk Pie.
Christus mansionem benedicat!
Some Small Victories for this Week
Lesson plans are ready for the week and we're ready to start up with school tomorrow and our regular routine.
We became members at Costco for the first time in our married life and now the fridge and freezer are stocked and ready for me to make a dinner menu :-) Tomorrow's project.
The playroom is neat and clean again - it had become a camp ground over Christmas break and I'm happy to have everything cleaned up and put away again.
My new facebook page is up and running for"Simple Saints" and I started painting Mother Teresa. I didn't quite get her Sari right....but I think I'll have it for the next one :-)
