2015 Project 365 – Week Fourteen

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.

Sunday, March 29th     
Papa cardinal.

Yes, that is a totally kaput bracket.

Monday, March 30th  

I took a walk outside today.

Tuesday, March 31st        
Back yardigans…

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).

The moon!

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            
Dr. M said, “Oh Downy Boy, the seed, the seed is calling…”

It was an elegant presentation of Easter candy, but I have to tell you that the glass is already empty again :)

The moon!

Hope everyone has a great week!


  1. What perfectly gorgeous little cows at that telephone pole! My absolute favourite.

    (and I stopped buying the malted milk eggs. ate too many once and they turned on me. terrible story.)

    1. I knew you would love them! They were quite frisky, kicking up their heels, butting each other. So precious!

  2. I don't usually comment on your pictures of the moon but this blue one really touched me. It's really special.

  3. We have those red-winged blackbirds flitting around here, too, but I've never been able to get a picture of them. Well, not one that's postable. (I know that's not a word)

    And if "Danny Boy" plays in my head for the rest of the evening, I'm blaming you. And Dr. M. And the woodpecker.

  4. The Easter Bunny wasn’t quite ready for action yet.

    Looks like he was tired and gave up the ghost. Never really saw how Santa, the Tooth Fairy and Mr. Bunny did it anyway.

  5. what is that animal? and yah, I love the weekly review.

  6. Pleased by the geese
    Wowed by the cows
    Swooned over the moon
    Loved the dove!

    Couldn't rhyme no mo' ;-)

  7. Very clever, Rita! I was simply going to say that I love all the signs of spring, and that you both take note of them.

  9. I love that second last moon, quite annoyed I never thought of taking it that way - one of these days Bug, I'm gonna get myself a proper camera... one of these days - until then I'll just visit here when in need of colour, light and nature!!! Fab stuff, and happy Easter! X


Thanks for stopping by - I'd love to hear what you have to say!
