1-We’ve added a baby to the family and he’s the sweetest little guy ever. Isaiah Jonathan. He sleeps and eats and smiles all day long and sleeps all night. I can’t stop watching him, and my heart is so full. He’s been such a wonderful blessing and his calm is so needed in our family chaos.

2- While John was on paternity leave HE FINISHED THE KITCHEN! Repaired the drywall and covered the beam and post. 2 years in the making.

3- Sadie and I have implemented Art Tuesday’s. We spend the day hanging out at the kitchen table doing artsy things. She’s loving it and her skills are far greater than mine. 75B0B832-DE12-4A80-AC5B-00E953F8C653

Michaelmas

familymotherhood

This Thursday is our first venture into liturgical celebrations, unless you count a half attempt at advent and lent just passed, which I don’t. Anyway, Thursday is Michaelmas and I had to do lots of research because, embarrassingly, I didn’t even know who Michael was. If you find yourself in the same situation, he’s the angel that defeats Satan during the battle in heaven, among other things.

 

Rumor has is that when Satan was thrown from heaven, he landed in a blackberry bush. Michaelmas day is generally regarded as the last day to pick blackberries as afterwards they will taste bitter. We’ll be having blackberry cobbler after supper, reading Revelation 12, listening to this playlist, and maybe going to see if the blackberry vines have anything left on them. Unlikely.

 

Have you ever celebrated Michaelmas? Pray tell!
