I hope you all had a wonderful Resurrection Sunday, celebrating our Risen Lord. He is worthy of all of our praise and adoration.
Here's little Miss Piper all dressed for church this morning. Mommy texted me this picture. She's wearing the sweater I made for her last year. I made it big so she would get lots of wear out of it.
Ice...not frost...ice on my windshield at the lake last Thursday morning. It was 17 degrees. Yuck.
Hail fell there on Wednesday.
But it was a beautiful day yesterday and Dennis and I filled an old sheet three times with pine cones from our camping spot and hauled them down the road to the big burn pile. This was a LOT of pine cones-it was a full size sheet and was heaped full. The picture doesn't quite do it justice.
Tonight snow is predicted at the camper but I came home anyway. I hope all is well there and hopefully the pipes won't freeze, but I have to use this week to get food ready for Dennis and my clothes packed for the cruise. Nita and I leave on Saturday morning and will spend the night at a hotel in Houston before boarding the Emerald Princess on Sunday.
I made nine more burial pouches while at the lake. I'm done. I can only do so many of these before depression sets in and I think I've met my limit. They are pretty though don't you think? I hope they give the grieving parents some comfort. It's the only way I can make them, having hope that they help the family.
Five more baby hats for the hospital.
It's been a good day and would have only been better if our children would have been here. Our day started with waking up at the lake in time to drive home and change clothes for church. We had a wonderful breakfast at church with our church family. We celebrated the Resurrection of our Saviour with a wonderful time of singing, communion and teaching. Then lunch with Larry and Nita at Wendy's. We came home and unpacked from the lake, started laundry and then went to Neal & Jenny's house to have a wonderful ham dinner with them and three of their adult children. Star lives in Seattle and wasn't able to be here. Their family is our family and we are very grateful to be included in their family fun. Our kids all grew up together and we enjoy catching up on their lives.
I hope you have all had a happy day too and were able to spend time with your family or friends.
