That is such a beautiful way of think of prayer linked to these bells. Every time you hear bells these prayers will be in your thoughts.

I've been watching what I eat. No cheese and crackers late at night! I've been cycling on an exercise bike instead of sitting on the sofa as we watch a tv program in the evenings. I've cycled almost 400kms but have lost a measly 5 pounds. I'm exhausted! I will be flying back to Dublin to see my family in two weeks and was hoping to impress them with a lighter, trimmer me. At least it is October and I can hide under layers of woolly jumpers!!!

Corey I'm a great believer in the power of prayer. In my life it has brought me comfort even if I haven't always been granted what I asked for. As I left my teenage years and became an adult I learnt to change how I prayed. I no longer ask for what I want in black and white but ask God to bring comfort and to work things out as he sees fit. My Dad is so in need of prayers right now and as I pray for him I will also pray for Linda's mum and the other requests here in the comments section.

I have two gorgeous nephews and another one on the way. Oh the fun of being an Auntie. All the fun and none of the tidying up!

Ha Ha! You look like you are having fun. I got a new iphone handset this week and had to transfer the info from old to new. There were 1800+ photos! Most of them funny ones the kids had taken without me being aware! Looks like you were having fun!

I don't think I know any of my friends that could not put their hand up to all of the faults you have described. In a perfect world we would never be impatient, we would never snap at our spouse, our houses would always be perfect. But we don't and that is what makes life challenging. Always striving to be better, trying to live a good life. Where would be the fun or challenge in that if life was already perfect?!

Looks like you are having fun! I'm so glad for you. Maybe the sore foot was there for a reason. Slow down and smell the roses!

We just had the heaviest rainfall for an April weekend in ten years here in Australia. And we spent it in a TENT!

I remember this recipe from before! It looks just as good as I remember.... I don't think I would ever be confident enough to try it. I think I'll just enjoy looking at the photos again and imagine being in Annies kitchen with you!

I have a tall cupboard that houses all my craft mess and materials. I have lined the inside of the doors with lots of photos just like you describe. School photos, friends children, snapshots I love but wouldn't have room to frame and display. It makes me smile when I open it and am bombarded by the images and memories!

I love this list. It's simple, affordable and fun! I am going to print it out when Australian summer rolls around and put it on our fridge!

Its cold here. The closest I get to your pictures is the ton of garlic I threw in the slow-cooker this morning. I'm jealous!

I want to run away too. I've just got home from a stressful day in the hospital. I've been shouted at and put down, hugged and praised, been accused and apologised to. I just want to curl up in a sunbeam on the carpet and rock back and forth for a little while. Wish I could magically transport myself to your field even for ten minutes. I'm closing my eyes now and clicking my red ruby slippers together.....

I honestly thought when you said "Vanilla for the big one" you were talking about you! Are you honestly telling me that you resisted the urge to have a delicious treat yourself? Its winter here in Australia and we all had a big bowl of vanilla after tea last night. We needed something to serve with the apple flapjacks that failed to set. Delicious spooned all over the ice-cream. My daughter loved them so much she has a second batch of the same recipe in the oven tonight and is hoping it too will fail to set!

I'm sorry to hear about your Mother-in-law. Its been a long month happening. I know you already know that no-one will care about the dust-balls when they come to spend time under your roof. I think its just something we universally feel we need to do to show the world we are running our houses like clockwork. I'm sure people will look back on the homeliness, talking and reconnecting more than the shiny surfaces. Good luck...

I had similar looking caterpillars in the fields behind our house when I was growing up in Ireland. We called them "Hairy Molly's and they left an irritated line on your skin where they walked. I was fascinated and nervous of them at the same time and used to collect them on grass blades so I could watch them without getting "Poisoned"
