Happy Easter! How was your week? Mine was a struggle. Physically I appear to be falling apart. Strange joint pain. Kind of like the pain I had when they diagnosed me with lupus. But I have been negative for lupus for so long now. I really feel for anyone who has to deal with chronic pain because just a couple of weeks of this and I am totally wiped out.
Last week was prom so for those of you who want to see my daughter’s prom dress, here you go. She’s a sophomore but went with friends and had a total blast.
We attended Easter service last night so that we could all go together. Competing schedules are always a challenge in this house. That means my morning is wide open. Also, no high school ministry tonight so I can enjoy the evening as well. I wasn’t feeling “hammy” this week so instead of the traditional Easter ham, we are having steak and seafood. I am going to rest and watch TV and just hang around like a limp noodle.
My daughter will be adding another show to her theatre resume this week (Little Shop of Horrors). Registration is Monday night. Auditions haven’t happened yet but I’ll let you know what she ends up with. Rehearsals begin AFTER Footloose so I’m happy about that.
The show my son is in, Bright Star opens this weekend. We have tickets for opening night. Can’t wait.
I am working my way through Jesus: His Life on the History channel. I meant to finish it by the time Easter rolled around but you know, life. It got in the way. The good thing is that The Hub is watching it with me. He really enjoys the historical aspect of what’s being presented. We are about halfway through it.
New Things I’ve Tried:
Vegan butter. I am not vegan but sometimes I just naturally move towards a plant based diet and when that happens I just go with it. I figure my body is trying to tell me something. Anyway, this brand of vegan butter is fantastic. It tastes like butter, spreads like butter and melts. Miyokos Vegan Butter is very impressive. I got mine at Trader Joe’s.
My son was awarded a scholarship for college the other day. He has applied for several but we were happy to see one come through. Every bit helps!
If you celebrate Easter with a special meal, what will you be serving?
