Jeff and I browsed a flea market today, hoping to find some stuff for the apartment. We didn't find much, although later in the day I did get a full-22 volume hardback set of Calvin's commentaries very economically!
Anyway, we stopped by downtown's Lexington Market to get a drink at the friendly Mt. Kenya Tea & Coffee (check out their page on economic justice). Afterward we visited the St.Jude Shrine, operated by the Pallottines who advocate a kind of R.C. "priesthood of all believers" --if you can imagine it. (Rumor has it that a good friend once prayed there for the return of his beloved cat, seeing as Jude is the patron saint of lost causes).
We also made our way to the newly renovated Botanical Conservatory & Gardens in Druid Hill Park which is adjacent to our new neighborhood. It was very well done. I hope to have a picnic there before winter.
