Happy Easter!! All day I’ve been singing (mostly in my head, but sometimes in the car): Lo in the grave he lay, Jesus my Savior. Waiting the coming day, Jesus my Lord. Up from the grave he arose! With a mighty triumph o’er his foes! He arose a victor from the dark domain, and he lives forever with his saints to reign…” And then I just sort of hum because I don’t know the alto & the soprano gets out of my range and then I get all nostalgic about this soprano (Murial, called Merle because I guess we couldn’t say Murial?) in my home church who could knock this out of the ballpark… You get the picture. :)
Anyway, this week we made up for the lack of pictures last week! There’s lots of wild (& not so wild) life. It was also Holy Week, which kept me quite occupied all week.

Yes, that is a totally kaput bracket.

I took a walk outside today.
Tuesday, March 31st
I met another Alter Guild lady at church today & we set things up for the Maundy Thursday service.
The moon! (To see other pictures of the moon, including the eclipse, check out Dr. M’s post here).
Wednesday, April 1st
I sat outside on our new swing and crocheted for a while.
I love the series of pictures Dr. M took of these ducks. Go here to see more of them.
Cows, and a goose that would have appreciated being able to groom itself in peace. Ha!
Dove at the cement pond…
I walked around the neighborhood. The Easter Bunny wasn’t quite ready for action yet.
Thursday, April 2nd
Our Maundy Thursday service was this evening. I made Charoset (using this recipe) for the meal prior to the service (we have Seder items along with soup & bread).
Our back yard just gets sillier every day.
Friday, April 3rd
Dr. M named our new “puppy” Ulysses Everett McGill. Heh.
Good Friday – stripped altar and elements awaiting communion…
I came home from church & gazelled. While eating Easter candy. You got a problem with that? Ha!
Saturday, April 4th
Hope everyone has a great week!
