Special event...

I was tempted to title this post "Busy Month" but in all honesty which month is not busy ??? 

This week-end is a very special event for our family. 
DH Gerald
 will be ordained
in our church
 Sacré-Coeur Saulnierville NS. 
For the last 5 years we have had  a wonderful journey preparing for this day and on  Saturday Nov 8, he will answer to the calling of the Holy spirit as Arch-Bishop Mancini  ordains  him as a deacon for the Archdiocese of Halifax-Yarmouth.

Please keep him in your prayers .

As for the guild.... lots happening. We are getting ready for the Christmas Tea 
(Check out Karen Neary's blog... so well said!}

we had a sewing retreat to sew for the guild's boutique.
 Every corner of the hall was occupied. 
 and the projects being made were gorgeous. 
 a true sense of solidarity.....
 People working together and forming lasting friendships. 
 The laughter and the sharing of ideas ... so precious. 
and even if it is only November the spirit of Christmas was launched at La Guilde Acadienne de Clare on this sewing retreat.  
For our meal together we enjoyed an Acadian supper of 
 "Rappie Pie" ! 

Busy times....  yes!..............
as I prepare to close a chapter in my career. It is official I will be retiring on December 31st. I have started the process of cleaning out my office as I am passing on the "baton" to a colleague. 
That too was a wonderful journey. 
46 years working in the health care system, caring for others had its many rewards.   

I have been sewing everyday mostly Christmas gifts which I do not have "eye candy" for fear someone will figure out their gift. I will review my stash and hopefully will be able to post pictures  later. 

Stay well!     


  1. Your retreat sounds like so much fun. I love retreats, but I've never been to one where everyone was working toward a common goal. And I would have love to have tried the rappie pie. I've looked at a couple of recipes since we got home, but it looks like way too much work for me! I'll definitely try it the next time I'm in Nova Scotia.

  2. WOW!! I GUESS there has been a lot going on!! Great post. Congratulations on your retirement. Hmmm, I hope you can keep busy now that you'll have lots of extra time:)!!
