My blogging friend, Amy at Splendor in the Ordinary, has started a really lovely series of Tea Time posts for sharing the Church Year with your kiddoes. Our afternoons are such that an organized Tea Time will only cause me undue stress, but I'm thinking about incorporating her ideas into our evening "Family Time".
Another Anglican blogging friend, Jessica at Homemaking Through the Church Year, is showing off a beautiful head of hair ... a Crown Braid style that is making me long for long hair. If you scroll down on my blog you'll see how long my hair was last year...it is well above shoulder length now. I like it, but when I see Jessica's pretty do I get a little misty-eyed.
A new-to-me blog, Scholium, has linked to a discussion by Fr. Patrick Reardon on the importance of the family table. Now, I know you know this, but do you Know It? Recently, when listening to the CiRCE 2009 Conference CDs, I got to thinking about the Nature of a Meal and realized we (my family, I mean) were sometimes letting the dining slip into mere eating. Fr. Reardon has given me a bit more inspiration in the proper direction.
I stumbled onto Susan's blog: Susan's Pendulum. She's witty, interesting, and a rich thinker. She also knows a funny joke when she sees one. Check out Today's Laugh. Of course, that would be a today that is two days old, but still. . .
And two posts of a theme at iMonk this week: The Older Teaching the Younger - Part 1 and Part 2 just left me a bit slack-jawed. I see this happening in my own church a bit. There is a mooring that has been cut. How do we re-tie it before we are entirely adrift and lost at sea?
Blogging has been so spotty. Baby is doing wonderfully, but suffering through two new teeth. My eldest's study schedule is still needing LOTS of mom-guidance. And my computer has been in the hubby/tech support hospital lately. I now have a newly refreshed (read: entirely deleted and reloaded) hard drive. Currently, we have a severe lack of testosterone in the house. All the men are gone for the weekend. It is just daughters 1 and 2 and Me! Oh, and 2 female dogs and 2 female cats. Shhhhh..... don't tell my husband: We are going out for Krispy Kremes and Starbucks in the morning. I had big plans for my weekend, but I think this will have to do.
Don't forget tomorrow is St. Francis of Assisi's Feast Day!
