Today has been full. Ray and I are going full-speed ahead on eBay listings since we have so many new items from our latest estate that we are handling. We got up early and listed before church for a couple of hours, then we went to church where I served as subdeacon. From there, I had a meeting for one of our parishioners who feels called to the priesthood. He asked me to serve on his Lay Discernment Committee. I am happy to do this since he is a very sweet young man, plus this will be my fourth time in this position. We met with a representative from the Diocese who gave us an orientation on the process. While I have done it before, it’s always helpful to get a refresher. We will be meeting once a month for at least 6 months to a year so there’s a lot to remember.
I returned home to a little relaxing time before more eBay listing. We try to post all of our new items by Sunday evening at 7 pm so this was crunch time. I am learning a lot about Rookwood and Gouda pottery, Navajo jewelry, and Inuit sculptures. Very interesting.
After this, I looked over the proposals for the summer term of Story Circle Network Online classes and also proposed a class of my own. I also communicated with several SCN teachers in reference to those proposals as well as with the SCN program director. Tomorrow I will do more related to this since the proposal deadline moves me into Phase II of term planning. But that’s tomorrow’s task, not today’s. Hooray.
Now I am getting ready to head upstairs to watch the series finale of “The Leftovers.” We will see how satisfying the wrap-up is. Finales can be tough when a series has been complicated and excellent. We will see.
But first, I need to walk the dogs. That’s okay. I could use a little walk after such a busy, but productive day.
I’m hoping you had a restful Sunday. I will look forward to a restful mid-week day. After all, Ray and I will celebrate our 37th wedding anniversary on Wednesday!
