Thanks, y'all, and isn't this lovely??
Gee, everyone, thanks for your input. I have simply been trying to spend my time wisely as it is such short supply. I find a great value in the blog world, and was wondering if I was off base. Apparantly not, and thanks for helping to clear that up!
So, another week begins, and we are off to a great start. No hives for me (yea), my instructional work with everyone is done for the day, now it's just motivational speaking that is left for me today. Well, that and laundry, but that goes without saying.
My next goal is to plan out 2-3 weeks of menues. I will make my deadline Friday afternoon, so if you all have any suggestions for simple, delicious, do-ahead crowd pleasers, please share. If you want, I'll share my finished product. Just let me know.
I have to give a shout out to my Gospel Bluegrass music. It is lifting my spirits something fierce. The Cox Family singers, The Isaacs, and Allison Krause. I can do my gorgeous 3 mile hike around the lake, and worship at the same time. All this after attending Divine Liturgy in the morning, and sandwiching in some school and laundry between. This afternoon I will begin instructing a friend in the blessing of iconography. She and I will be working on writing an icon of the Theotokos, while I continue to work on my Good Shepherd. I'll take some photos to share as we go. It doesn't get better than this, I say.
Last week the weather was positively gorgeous for my hikes. The blue, puffy clouds, the warm sun, the crisp air, the wild flowers and grasses in full bloom. I love living in the midwest. Love it. The photo is one my brother took, and he titled it "Midwest Mountains."
Blessings to you all!
