Saturday

Posted by Jenelle in Life in New York / 1 Comment

Got out of bed at 8.30.
Had breakfast.
Watched the end of Marley & Me.
Bawled my eyes out. Always that movie. Ugh!
Fresh Direct arrived.
Bill took the laundry downstairs.
Got dressed/hair/makeup.
Left for Queen of All Saints.
Went to the local nursing home to give communion to the residents.
As it was my first time visiting the sick and elderly, a fellow parishioner took me along to show go through the process. It was an incredibly humble and moving experience. From seeing the joy on their faces when we entered the room, hearing them respond “Thanks be to God” and then, to see the peace take them over when they receive the Body of Christ. It was beautiful. People our age talk about life in New York being so difficult. Imagine dealing with life here when you are elderly or infirm? Holding their hands and wishing them a “Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!” made this Saint Patrick’s day one to remember.
Dropped back into the Rectory.
Then, mani/pedi time! I will be doing a post on this next.
Home for lunch and watching the Saint Patrick’s Day parade on TV.
Did a blog post.
Bill baked. Oh did he ever!
I started making our Lebanese Feast for lunch tomorrow.

The rest of the night will be relaxing, putting away the washing, watching Two Fat Ladies, annoying Bill and just mucking around. I love a productive Saturday!
