What we do for our friends

My friend, Marcia, is facing a double hip replacement on March 4th.  Regina planned a day of sending her forth (March 4th is her surgery) by cleaning and organizing Marcia's kitchen.

Sometimes one just has to take everything out of the drawers, refold the towels and the drawer looks more organized.  Regina tackled Marcia's upper cupboards and put all the cookbooks standing up and the loose recipes in file folders.
Marcia  loves tablecloths and napkins.  Reginia organized both the cloth and paper napkins and now there's room for more!  I worked on the spice cupboards and teased Marcia about having 4 boxes of food coloring!

One final picture of the immaculate kitchen and the worker bees!
Marcia spent a week at the Monastery of St. Gertrude learning all about icons.  She and 13 other participants painted icons of St. Gertrude.  Marcia learned about the history of icons, the deep meaning behind the natural materials that are used to paint the wood board, and then she shared this knowledge with us.  Father Brad, our current pastor, really likes icons and hopes to decorate our new church with '"all saints."  Marcia learned that Father Damien could come to Lewiston and hold several workshops and supervise the painting of icons right on our walls.  This icon held a place of honor on the newly polished countertop!
