Well, at least we're in the octave, LOL:)! Yesterday was exhausting but worth every minute! I hit the ground running at 8, got to early practice a little late, but made it through the Easter Obstacle Course without falling, crashing (well, except for that one chair) or hurting anyone (that I know of).
Kristin, Sonny and his Mom, Linda all came to the late service with baby Johnny. I cannot tell you how much this meant to see them all there on Easter Sunday! Linda is such a sweetheart - visiting our church and spending time with Sonny, Kris and Johnny before spending the balance of Easter with her other three grandkids and Sonny's sister and brother-in-law - Ladonna and Jason. Their comments about the sermon and the music were very kind. I about fell over myself introducing them to everyone I could between and after the services and of course appropriating Johnny to show him off to everyone in the choir:) It was a lovely spring day - and it was getting hot in there!
When it was all over and I could strip off those vestments, we headed to La Mangia for a birthday/Easter brunch and had a blast. Kristin, Sonny and Johnny joined me in the fun and then afterwards we headed back to our house for Easter dinner - which thankfully John had prepared - and boy it was really really good. However, before dinner I did something I rarely do - I took a 2-hour nap! And JOHN was the one who had to work last night. Needless to say, I got dishes duty. That's OK - I can do dishes with my eyes closed!
Well, this week will be bereft of musical rehearsals and I will be feeling so lost - well, not really. I may just do something fun for part of that time - nothing that costs anything necessarily, just something I wouldn't normally do.
On the knitting front, I am plugging away on the EZ Green Sweater - not enough progress to post a picture right now - and may do a little more on a project I haven't been working on for a while - that little bit of distraction always helps me stay on track believe it or not!
Today I had two hearings I covered for a colleague here in Howard County and it was rather nice having only a fifteen -minute drive to the courthouse, including parking the car! When it was done, the drive back wasn't so bad, either!
Well, dear 3.5, I leave you with a view or two outside from the home office - at least the home office for the next few months.
And God be with you 'til we meet again:)
