One of the frivolous and fun ways I celebrated the two major feast days of the liturgical cycle, Easter and Christmas, involved shopping for a pretty new pair of shoes to wear under my vestments. This Easter I will likely not have any liturgical responsibilities and that is really OK. For now, the ebb and flow of serving as a supply priest and tending to the small and quiet chores of the farm on most Sundays is simply lovely. Today, I did some more work with the move of the chickens out to their new digs. I also ran over to the town of Millbrook, to one of my new favorite places, the Tractor Supply Store because I was running low on food for them.
While I was there, I saw these wonderous boots for $19.99. I will have to walk across a good bit of yard to feed the girls and tend to them daily, even when it is raining, so I got myself a pair. These are more Easter than Easter shoes could be this year. They tempted me to bring out the Alleluias a few weeks early but I didn’t. Instead, I shall continue to “observe a holy Lent of self-examination, repentance and prayer…” Too bad it’s supposed to rain tomorrow–I’ll have to wear my boots.
