Well the Apocalypse didn't happen yesterday, did it? At least I am still here and the walls are still standing.
I did hobble over to the church a half block away, (with Old Man's support) for the last Sunday of Advent today. We were delighted with the soft snow and sunshine. It was a Christmassy day, like this old photo of the village years ago.
It was a quiet and reflective time followed by coffee hour and then the last session of a study with Jean Vanier of L'Arche.
He is such a wise but somehow contemporary man.
We are leaving in the morning to go to the ranch at 150 Mile Ranch for Christmas with our rent-a-daughter for 3-4 days. It is too far to go to Ontario to be with the girl grand-children. Our son in BC is hosting the other in-laws this year. I am walking better with the one crutch so a change of scene and pace will be good after 3 weeks indoors.
#1 was decorated with second hand things from a thrift store
#2 is carved wood table toppers that would look good on my oriental chest
#3 is a tissue paper rainbow whimsy
