The weekend started out much the same as usual. Friday night snacks with a little knitting and – woot! – the latest season of Bosch on Amazon Prime.
Holly is still not quite used to me being home. Normally she cuddles up to Marc … but when I’m gone, Marc tells me she sleeps by my pillow. absence makes the heart grow fonder?!
Saturday was pretty typical, too. The day began with a drizzle, proceeded to sewing and ended with our “nice dinner at the table”. This week it was roast pork loin, green beans, corn on the cob, sweet potato and a green salad … and a bottle of red.
Sunday, however, was a little different. I’d toyed with the idea of attending the outdoor sunrise service at 7am. But it was 42 degrees and windy when I got up – yep, chickened out. and I’m so glad I did. I would’ve missed my early morning walk and the stunning show of the azaleas in the sunshine.
and I would’ve missed the glorious celebration at our 11am service. The music – brass, timpani and bells, accompanying both the organ and piano and a full choir.
The children’s choir (hidden by the conductor is a girl with rabbit ears).
and a photo opportunity in front of the Easter tree – full of all the blessings the congregation cultivated during Lent.
So many Alleluias!
Sunday afternoon was sewing, knitting, reading, FaceTime with Sara and an early dinner. one last nod to “my holiday” (as Marc calls it) … BLTs and potato chips with blue cheese dip.
We’re now halfway through this latest season of Bosch and enjoying it just as much as the previous ones. I’m also still listening to a lot of podcasts … highly recommend all of the episodes from Saturday and Sunday’s walks.
…and that’s the weekend!
Hope yours was wonderful … and that your week is off to a great start.
