So I was taking a bath last night and Jeremy brought me a donut and turned on nice music and lit candles all over the bathroom and turned off the overhead light and when I got out of the bath there were flower petals all over the room

but THEN

the petals stained our comforter so we put it in the washing machine but then the washing machine flooded and we spent an hour mopping up all the water and we had to move the washer and dryer to mop behind them and it was pretty much a total disaster.

"Traditionally, the Orthodox will never cover the Gospel Book in leather—the skin of a dead animal—because the words of Christ are considered to be life-giving. Animal skins are also reminiscent of the Fall of Man, when God fashioned garments of skin for Adam and Eve after their disobedience. Traditionally, the Gospel is covered in gold, the earthly element which is [sic] best symbolizes the glory of Heaven.”
