(This cross is in front of my church on Easter. It is a church tradition to bring flowers on Easter Sunday to put on it.)
We've had a nice Easter. Curly resurfaced late Saturday night and spent the night in the tent in the backyard without complaints. He got up and shaved off his week-old stubble and came to church with me and Moe, wearing the new dress shirt I bought for him. Tomorrow he has a job interview at the local Target - let's hope he gets a job and can keep himself out of trouble. And maybe even save some money!
Hope springs eternal.
Hope is the thing with feathersWith Curly, as with all my children, I must always have hope. And faith that God will take care of them. For it is, after all, Easter.
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops at all,
And sweetest in the gale is heard;
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little bird
That kept so many warm.
I've heard it in the chilliest land
And on the strangest sea;
Yet, never, in extremity,
It asked a crumb of me.
My Ott light arrived - I love it! It's so wonderful to have such good full spectrum light. It helps while I'm working on the hairpin lace or tatting. I'm still working on the Kitty Blankie for my new niece.
And I'm a winner! Tatting Chic had a giveaway for her 2 year blogiversary. She decided to give away a How To Tat book and a shuttle and some thread. And I won! Hurrah! I've wanted a how to tat book, as I've got a number of folks wanting to to be taught, and this will help them. Thank you Tatting Chic. You are very kind, and your gift will be much appreciated.
Tomorrow I am not going to work. I still have 2 furlough days to take, so I'm going to sleep in and relax. I may spend some time painting in Curly's old room. DH has cleaned it out and put patches on most of the bad spots on the walls. It will be a soothing blue with white trim, a pleasant color for a guest room. Moe (and Curly) are off this week for Spring Break, and I may see if there is something little I can do with Moe.
For a last lovely bit - look at today's BC comic. It's a little sermon in the funny pages.
