2018 Newsletter #2

Here’s seven updates as to what’s been going on in my life over the past week.

Estimated reading time: < 7 minutes.

I’ve been…

Watching: Probably more Netflix than I ought. I need to spend more time reading.

Listening to: I’ve started listening to Podcasts on my phone. I’ve found several great lectures online by Fr. Timothy Gallagher (I’ve blogged about him here before), and it’s nice to see what else he’s been working on.

Eating: the most amazing confection I’ve never heard of before, a Victoria sandwich; and scones the size of a hamburger!!! Both available from a little tea shop (British-themed) in our part of the city. The tea was quite good too. I’m looking forward to going back.

Visiting: A new (to me) park down by the riverfront. We went for an evening event but I’d love to go back and stroll along the riverside paths. The haze around the river valley is lovely to behold.

InstaBrowsing: Feminine Reverence, and similar. I also have been looking at Pinterest for ideas on making a homemade shrine or crèche.

App Download: Magnificat. For the month of August, I’m experimenting with reading the morning prayers from the app instead of the book we get in the mail. I’m hoping to free up the physical copy to share it more easily with other members of our household.

Practicing: Developing patience and slowly building up my pain tolerance threshold. Too personal to share more details right now.
