Getting ready for Easter
Saturday, March 30, 2013
The annual tradition of polishing the brass altar pieces for Easter
began at 10. We like to have everything shiny after undressing the
altar on Good Friday. While the rest of the group was working on
that, I was dressing the altar with white and hanging the banner.
DS had a tax appointment at 11 but that only took 10 minutes. Back
at church it was going quite well with lots of hands to get the work
done. DD made soup and we enjoyed the time visiting. The GC came
home with me and when DD and SIL were done with their tax
appointment, we dyed the 8 dozen eggs I had boiled this morning.
DS and GF spent most of their time cleaning church and doing
a little extra so everything looks nice tomorrow.
Suddenly it was 3 pm so I took the eggs down to church and
went for a short coffee break. Then off to do chores with DH.
The temperature was 67 degrees at 3:45. As soon as we left
the farm, I went to fill my pickup with gas and then the cold front
came through. The temperature dropped 18 degrees in about
10 minutes. Yikes, what a change. The wind turned gusty with
rain showers but then an hour later, the skies cleared and
the rain was gone.
We had a simple supper of french toast and bacon and I had
my usual salad to balance it out. Still have 300 colories left for
a snack but I am content right now.
Have a happy and healthy Easter. Make good choices if you are
have a family gathering but most of all, give thanks and remember
that Easter is more than bunnies and chocolate.
Thanks for stopping by. HUGS!
