At The Parsonage – Preparing for Christmas Part I

Saturday, December 23rd, 2017

I love our tradition of receiving a tree from a family in our former parish who own a tree farm. Our first couple years of marriage Phil would sneak out to a ditch off the road and cut one down while I stood watch. Fun times. We were rescued from the adventurous Bonny and Clyde life by this kind man who has gifted us with a tree since then.

My friend Katy says “I love being a grownup sometimes – so much excitement for mundane things.” For real. Who would have thought you could be so excited over  something like a mopped kitchen, a matched sock or a city sewer line!?

At The Parsonage – Preparing for Advent

Whoever planned this “extra week” before Advent begins, Thank You! It’s been nice to have time to get a few things done before Advent was all in my face. Especially with being so sick all last weekend and still recovering the last few days. I’m grateful to have found some energy to get moving on the preparations and also get a bit of decorating done.

I was excited when this print came in the mail. Ordered from Jane.com.  I’ve used this site for many of the prints I have around my home. I frame them myself and have found so many great frames at Walmart for el cheapo!

At The Parsonage – End of Fall

Tuesday, November 28th, 2017

There’s something good I think in enjoying each season as it comes and Fall is always “good to the last drop.” Here we are at the end of Fall heading into more of my favorite seasons, Advent and Christmas and ok there’s, Winter.

Fall has played with us a lot this year, going from so very warm to unbearably cold…and repeat.  Unfortunately I’ve been sick for so much of it with one thing or another. This is the week I had intended to do some cleaning, put away Fall in our home and joyfully bring out Advent but I’m in bed with the Flu and a terrible cough.

Today I’m feeling better, except for the dreadful coughing, so I do still have hope of getting some preparations accomplished in time for the first Sunday of Advent. We shall see.

Here is a look at some more of the happenings of our final days of this beautiful Season of Fall. (Can you tell I like the word ‘of?‘)
