4-Way Hat

I recently.... QUITE recently!.... blogged about a new trimming I  ordered for my royal blue women's bowler hat.  At the time, I wrote that I was going to remove the sunflower applique, and replace it with the new bird applique.
But I didn't remove the sunflower after all; I decided that it was too nice a decoration to remove.
Instead, I put the bird trimming on the opposite side.
So now, I can wear my hat four different ways:

1: Sunflower in front, bird in back, sides untrimmed.
2: Bird in front, sunflower in back, sides untrimmed.
3: Sunflower on right, bird on left, front and back untrimmed.
4: Bird on right, sunflower on left, front and back untrimmed.

New Trimming For My Hat

I've sent for a new trimming for my hat.


So what will I do with the sunflower?   THAT is going on my wall, next to two sunflowers
I've already placed there.  And someday, I suppose, I'll send for yet another trimming

for my hat [I've seen so many that I like!] and this, too, will become part of the decor on my wall.

Strange December

So far, this has been a strange December, with unseasonably warm weather.  Ordinarily,
at this time of year, Winky's coat would be getting longer and thicker.  Instead of that
happening, however, he is SHEDDING.

And I spoke to Kathryn today.  She told me that her roses are blooming!

Early Delivery

My new hat arrived yesterday morning, a day earlier than I expected it. I was, as the saying
goes,  pleasantly surprised.
The hat fits perfectly, is very comfortable, and looks great. I'm going to keep the brim rolled up, instead of fooling around with re-shaping.
I've accessorized my hat with one of those self-adhesive applique sunflowers I bought several months ago.

This Year's Resolutions

It's my custom to make my New Year's Resolutions on the First Sunday in Advent, rather than on January 1st.
I've made two for this year, one religious, and one secular.
1: Pray three extra Chaplets of Mercy every day.
2: Read at least one biography or autobiography a week.

It seems that every year I make at least one resolution that involves reading!

A New Post About a Hat, With Excerpts From An Older Post

Awhile back, I blogged about a hat I used to have, one that  "I  owned for years, and got a great deal of use and enjoyment out of.It was a blue felt shapeable hat....very shapeable.  And I shaped it in every possible way.  I also liked to use different accessories on my hat.  Sometimes it would be one of several pins I had. Sometimes it would be a scarf, with the ends tied into a bow.
I had that hat for more than ten years, not unlike the hat Miss Opal wore in Lenora Mattingly Weber's Beany and the Beckoning Road.
"Her black hat had seen years of service.  It was only the flowers, Beany realized, which blossomed anew on it every spring.  This spring Miss Opal had chosen pink, yellow, and blue daisies."
 Well, after I read that , "[I]s it any wonder that I began to miss my hat, which also saw "years of service," more than I did before?   Is it any wonder that I decided it was time to get a replacement?"
Well, yesterday I found a hat EXACTLY like the one I lost, NOT like the one I ordered several months ago, about which, the less said, the better!
Click here to see the hat.  Yes, I ordered it.  And since it is Prime eligible, I won't have to wait a month to get it; I'll have it on Monday.

"I'm going to wear it, instead of a prayer veil, when I watch the Mass on EWTN... and perhaps when I just feel like wearing it!
But am I giving up on veils? No; I will still wear a veil when I pray the Liturgy of the Hours."

I wrote in the earlier post, "Was it necessary for me to buy the hat, and the sticker.  No, and I realized that before I placed my order.   Every now and then it is good to make a completely frivolous purchase... provided, of course, that it is something you can afford, and something you really want."
I still feel that way.

Back Online With Some Sad News

I had no Internet, and no TV, for more than a week, and when I got back on, I found out that Fr. Anthony's twin sister, Anne Marie, passed away last week.
I also learned that Mother Angelica's health has declined, and she is now on a feeding tube.

Fr. Anthony's Sister: Update

A few years ago, I shared this sad news   about Fr. Anthony's sister, Anne Marie.  I have an update:
Fr. Leonard announced at today's Mass on EWTN that she has entered hospice care, and
Fr. Anthony was traveling to be with her.

Please pray!

Written Out

I think I may have overdone my writing lately.  I don't feel like working on  any of my fanfics right
now.  I don't feel like blogging.  I feel, for now anyway, written out.
So why am I writing about not feeling like writing?

Why I No Longer Wear Pajamas

I stopped wearing pajamas when I moved to Ronkonkoma. Why?  Simple.  My kitchen window
has no shade.  I could get one, but I'd rather have the view, and I think Winky would agree
with me about that.  He loves looking out that window.
Besides, it's so nice to see the trees, especially now when they are turning all sorts of colors.

Bible Reading Updated

Early this year, I tried reading the Bible using an online schedule, but due to computer issues, I fell too far behind.  I then tried reading my Bible straight through, but that didn't work either.
So now I'm trying yet another Bible-reading plan.  I dug up my old  Catholic One Year Bible
which uses the Catholic Living Bible, one of the more modern versions. I'm not, however,
reading this version; I'm using it as a guide, starting with the readings for January 1st. Why wait
almost two months?
Besides, it says on the back cover, "(T)he reader may start on any day of any year and follow
the system easily.
The readings for January 1st, in the order given, are:
Genesis 1:1- 2:25
Matthew 1:1-2:12
Psalm 1: 1-6
Proverbs 1: 1-6
Ecclesiasticus (Sirach): Translator's Prologue.
I'm not, however, following the order given.  There are several suggested plans,
but, and this is another direct quote:  "The arrangement of  The One Year Bible makes
it easy to devise any number of Bible reading plans to meet your particular needs."

I'm still working out the pattern I plan to use.

 I'm using three translations... The New American Bible,  the Revised Standard Version, Catholic Edition,
 and The Good News Bible, Catholic Edition.

Sleeping a Bagel

Sleeping a bagel is a Jewish expression that means sleeping around the clock, that is,
for twelve hours.  Well, last night I went to sleep at around six... due to that headache
I blogged about yesterday.... and slept for almost twelve hours.   It would have BEEN
twelve hours, except I woke up a few times. 
So I guess you could say I slept a bagel with a couple of bites taken out of it!

Blog Post... No Fanfic Today

Today will be the first time in weeks that I won't be posting anything on fanfiction.net. I've
got a squeezing... not splitting... headache, and I don't think I could do justice to my work.
My head feels as if I'm wearing a very tight, too-small cap.
Hmmmm.... NORMAL people take something and lie down, if possible, when they have a
headache.  What do I do?  I blog about having a headache!

Unexpected Twists

My AU Waltons prequel, The Poem, has taken some twists that I didn't expect.
Martha Rose Coverdale has become more important to the story than I had
meant her to be.
One thing I've learned is that if I want to take a story in one direction, but it wants to
go in another, it's a good idea to let the story lead me.
