Post Chalica 2014

  Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.

― Jim Rohn 

A week since Chalica has seen much change in our lives as we slowly move into our new house.  Thanks to many friends and family members we have a start on the wall paper removal, the painting and the move of many, many boxes. Today we are having some repairs done on the Iowa house so I am here trying to finish up the boxing and organizing for another load or two tomorrow am.  After 23 years in this house we have collected a lot of stuff. Some I have had time to weed out and some that will be weeded out as we unpack.  Take care!

Blessed be,


Kathy

7th day of Chalica 2014

 Welcome to the 7th day of Chalica 2014!
We had a full and interesting day today. We started with the Annual UU Pageant (since 2008) And it seems as if everyone enjoyed it. The sheep, goats and dogs wandered around the sanctuary as usual producing a few laughs from the audience. I have always said that working with 3 & 4 year olds can be like herding cats always unpredictable! 
Then we went from that to seeing our good friend Gary Kroeger in the Christmas play downtown, then a pie party.
Followed by a Chris-moose lightening at our friends - Pam & Al. 
So I hope you got a few minutes or more each day to think about Chalica!
Sunday: We light our chalice for respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part. Give gift(s) to our earth and/or its creatures
Examples:
- start a compost
- recycle bottles and cans and donate the money to an environmental / animal aid society
- rescue an animal from a shelter
- hold an outdoor worship service (dress warm/bonfire)

Blessed be,

Kathy
