Today I...August 8th

Today I... sharing this photo of the votive lamp stands that can be found outside the Our Lady of Angels Cathedral in Los Angeles. I was quite amused to see votive lamp stands outside among palm trees seeing as I am so used to seeing them inside churches in Canada. Votive lamps outside would be unthinkable here!

...had a very laid back day which I mostly spend reading. I am already nearly halfway through "Water for Elephants'' I guess it won't take me two or three weeks to finish it after all :o)

...enjoyed having a quiet day at home, it did me good, but I still don't feel ready to go back to work tomorrow. Ideally I would need at least a week off I think, but that won't happen until Christmas.'s quite hard to motivate yourself to go to work when everyone around you is going on vacation!!!


  1. I know dh is counting down the weeks until he has vacation, so he knows how you feel.

    Great photo,


  2. I live for vacation, and I know I've just gotten back to work from just having time off, but with my husband having been gone 10 days now, I think I need another one! :-)

    I hope you have a good week!!

  3. Always hard to end a holiday
