As for reading, besides continuing to work through The Return of the King, I haven't done much. I have done a little catching up on some of my old favorite blogs which I haven't looked at in a while. This week has been about getting the house in order as I get ready to leave town for the weekend to go down to Alabama with some friends and our daughters for a Mother-Daughter retreat.
If you would, say a prayer for a special mom I met in Charlotte, NC when I was a new Catholic and pregnant with my first baby. She just gave birth to number nine last month, a little girl with Down's Syndrome. Celeste Faustina has just had cataract surgery and in another 3 months or so will be needing heart surgery.
Hope to find some time to see what everyone is knitting and reading this week!
