Small Successes for November 4, 2010:
1) Oleander has an annual flute competition she enters each year. This year she had to record two pieces of music, which her flute instructor so kindly sent to me in an email attachment. Although the recording is not due until next Wednesday, I, with the help of the much more computer literate Wingnut, managed to paste together her two pieces and successfully uploaded them to the contest site a full week early.
2) I spent a good portion of some found free time updating and redesigning the blog. I was also able to write several posts that will auto-post over the next few days.
3) Although it was not a holy day of obligation this year, Wingnut and I took the family to the National Shrine in DC for Mass on All Saints Day. We went expecting to enjoy a simple daily Mass, but imagine our joy when we learned the Mass was to be celebrated by the Papal Nuncio, Archbishop Pieto Sambi. We had the pleasure of experiencing a High Mass in the Upper Church with a full choir, incense, bells, and a fantastic homily! The celebration was a full hour and a half, but the kids were all wonderfully behaved--even with bellies full of sugar from the festivities the night before.
