Happy Sunday

Hope you're having a happy Sunday. I was a bit ill this morning so I didn't get to church. I'm feeling better now though.

So I watched A History of Christianity, with the historian Professor Diarmaid MacCulloch, which I had Sky+'d. It was very interesting. The first episode covered Christianity from the very beginning and its move east. It was very interesting indeed. For example, I'd never heard of the Syriac Orthodox Church, which parted ways with the main church in 481 AD over a disagreement at the Council of Chalcedon. The service in Syriac Orthodox churches is in syrian-aramaic, a language very similar to the language Jesus spoke (He apparently would have spoken Aramaic in a Galilean dialect, very different from that in Jerusalem, it is also possible that he would have spoken Koine Greek and of course Hebrew - the language of the majority of the scriptures).

I also baked a loaf of bread in my bread maker for the first time in ages. Hubs happened to mention the other day that he preferred home-made bread (who doesn't?), plus I'm trying to save money. Bread flour is 61p for 1.5 kg, which will make 3 loaves. Decent packaged bread (not the cheap rubbishy bread) is at least £1.00 so even with the salt, sugar, butter, milk, yeast and electricity used, it works out cheaper and nicer and less full of preservatives.

Lol this picture really made me laugh.

As you may have surmised from the amount of pictures I post, I have a plethora of funny sites in my Google reader. If you're interested here they all are:

My plan today is to update my profile with a few new links.

Have a happy Sunday!


  1. I just came over to tell you that "MY husband" is the best one LOL

    Just kidding, I didn't just come for that LOL

    Actually I'm kidding I didn't come over for the husband thing at all hahahah

    Sounds like you're having a great Sunday and YUM on the bread. I love homemade bread and I agree, the store bought one can be so expensive lately.


  2. Ooh! I'll have to catch up with that programme on iPlayer. Diarmaid MacCulloch is one of the best historians in his field (along with Eamon Duffy). His book on the Reformation would make a good follow up to Stripping of the Altars. It's long, though! I borrowed it from the library a while ago, and didn't make it through to the end. I keep meaning to reserve it again.

    PS. It sounds as though your Chatterbox is well named!

  3. Lol Sandra we could argue about this all day! :)

    Bookworm - I'll have to check out his books, thanks.


  4. Loved the Lolcats picture.

    Homemade bread sounds wonderfu! I used to have a breadmaker, but gave it to my mom. I may need to look into getting another one.

    I'll check out the sites you provided.
