… sons come home for Advent?
Play games of Scorpa, trying to beat Dad ( and Greg succeeded!).
Work together- mark off areas for parking for the parish Christmas Carols tonight. And put together 300 lolly bags for the same carols.
Attend the funeral for a Friar’s father – and get lost on the way! Make up for this with many margaritas afterwards…
Keep up with Advent activities. Well, almost. We are faithfully reading the slips of paper, eating the lollies and chocolates from the Advent calendar and trying to follow the directions on the slips. We made the activity slips last year and they are re-usable. Hopefully.
Listen to Carols.
Smile more today.
Read the nativity story from one of the Gospels. (Still on the To Do List) . (Blushes and sighs).
Watch a Christmas movie.
Check weather on the feast of St Barbara (legend had it that the weather on this day will mirror the weather on Christmas Day).
Bake St Lucy’s Bread ( Crown) on the feast of St Lucy ( December 13 butI still intend to find time to do that this week and to make a gingerbread house or train…).
Continue with Advent reading. I am up to the section on the parables of Jesus , in “Jesus of Nazareth”.
Start Christmas Novena ( today).
How is your Advent?
