This is one of those Sunday evenings when I realize that we did A LOT this past weekend.
I'll start on Thursday. We made one more trip to the college so Junior could reserve textbooks and fill out the final forms. The only form remaining is his physical, and that is in two weeks. (His final trip to the pediatrician, actually.)
Friday evening we went to a free concert in a neighboring town. The country band was really good and Princess was tickled pink when the lead singer came over and sang to her, (Twice!)
On Saturday morning I made pancakes for breakfast for the kids. This was a common tradition when we home schooled-but when I returned to work a few years ago the Saturday morning breakfast tradition fell to the wayside. No Saturdays off meant no pancake breakfasts. Since I have Saturdays off now I can once again 'do the Saturday breakfast thing.' The sad part is that Junior leaves for college in 7 Saturdays...After breakfast we cleaned the house and then did our Saturday errands. This week it included haircuts and the search for the perfect duffel bag-so dirty laundry can be transported from and clean laundry can be transported to college 'fashionably.' Laundry baskets are NOT cool, nor are they space efficient. I am learning more about college every day!
Today it was terribly hot, so we decided to take a road trip after liturgy. We ended up in Clearfield County and took some nice pictures. I got four miles of walking in this evening, so now I sit exhausted at the computer. I think that it is an early bed night! So why am I still sitting here you may ask? Good question! Goodnight!
"Everything you do, all your work, can contribute towards your salvation. It depends on you, on the way you do it. History is replete with monks who became great saints while working in the kitchen or washing sheets. The way of salvation consists in working without passion, in prayer…. May God give you the strength to keep your spirit, your mind, and your heart in the spirit of Christ. Then everything that happens to you can very quickly be radically transformed. What was tiresome and discouraging will disappear, transfigured by your desire to be there where Christ your God is." Elder Sophrony
