Religion


I have been toying with the idea for months and months about getting back into a church community. We have been fortunate that some of our friends are active in the Episcopal Church so we have participated there a few times. It is similar to Catholicism, which I was raised as, except it is more open minded and liberal. This of course makes being an Episcopalian much more appealing. The only fault I have found in some of the churches is that they have awful music and choirs. I know, I know, you all think I am crazy, but it is true. When I was a kid in Catholic school, the nuns voices were superb and we, the whole congregation, would belt it out. I am well aware that lack of attendance and growth is be part of the issue. A lot of these churches do not have young members like the mega churches do, hence there is a small talent pool. Certainly wealthier churches have better resources to cultivate excellent music programs and even do more outreach.
Community is what I am ultimately looking for. A place to be welcome, share similar ideas, have discussions and enjoy. I would maybe even like to get involved in some community service programs.
If I do end up finding someplace lovely, I will make sure to post it here. In the meantime, if you have suggestions, I am always open to it.

Cheers!

  1. You are more than welcome to join St. Mary's in Pompton Lakes. Feels like the old St. Anthony's in paterson. Open minded , non traditional and yes..."WE BELT IT OUT".

A little bit of this and a little bit of that

I have made a painting for our living room where I sewed a dress onto a canvas. Now I need pages from a decadent book, get them on there and the piece will be complete. I will take a picture once it is done to share. It was a lot of fun to do and if I knew I could make money selling them, I would do more.

We have decided to forgo a built in bookcase in the living room. While I love the whole idea of some accent piece in the living room,I would rather it be the books and art work, not the bookcase/media center that would be holding it. So now we are looking at furniture similar to this console from Ballard Design. Just at a much better price.

This display from the blog Chic Provence makes me want to grow wisteria for the rest of my life and only dine under a fabulous pergola.

Theresa Burger, I love, love, love your resin rings.

I AM ON A MISSION

And not necessarily a wise one. Human beings like to collect things. Whether it is comic books, Dr Who paraphernalia, baseball cards, guns or weird cat art, for some reason we have a need to hunt and gather. I am not very good at things like Ebay or Craigslist. I basically suck at bidding and I get lazy about checking every hour for the possibility that someone may have posted/listed something I want.

Until now.

Recently I have gotten a bee in my big ass bonnet to locate a great deal on the following furniture pieces.

Hoosier Cabinet

I want this awesome piece of furniture for my kitchen so I can eliminate most of my upper cabinets and have a place for flour to sift out of because that would make me so cool. Some are wood, some are retro metal, all that matters it is a multi-functional piece of art that would be amazing to own..

I don't make pies and that is irrelevant to my desire for one of these.

Where would I even use this? I don't care. We can addres…

Irish pensioner who lives like we all used to back in the day. Good for her. Read here.

Sometimes it is best to disconnect. To get back to the land, to remove ourselves from the news, read a book, or just take a walk and be present.

Side note: I have to admit that running water and flush toilets are my most favorite inventions so camping is clearly out for me. :)

Have a great day.

Cheers!
