Have a Wonderful Easter!
Weather: Gorgeous. The weatherman says it will be 70 degrees today, sunny, warm and clear.
Today: Church then dinner with family and friends. We are cooking lamb, a first.
Yesterday: The first day of Spring Break, slept in, shopped, puttered in the garden, walked the dog, read.
Tomorrow: We head to Victoria, BC for a few days of vacation and sightseeing.
This week I finished these books:
- Ten Poems to Change Your Life by Roger Housden...I need this guy to explain all poems to me.
- The Wicked Wit of Jane Austen...one of those little books with quotes from her letters and books.
My Spring Break Reading List:
- The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh
- Jane Austen Ruined My Life by Beth Pattillo
- The Paris Wife by Paula McLain
- Prodigy by Marie Lu
- The Light Between Oceans by ML. Stedman
Scripture: Mark 16:6,7 “Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter, ‘He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.’”
Spring yard: Spring is hard upon us now. As you can see in the photo above, the street trees are in full bloom. Up and down the street the pink of the flowering plum makes the neighborhood look gorgeous. A few tulips are up and blooming. Step outside and the scent of spring is everywhere. I understand the Berlin is experiencing the coldest Spring in recorded history, and it has snowed in the heartland of our country, yet here we are with glorious, warm spring weather.
From the kitchen: Leg of lamb with roast potatoes and asparagus.
Quote: "Our Lord has written the promise of the resurrection, not in books alone, but in every leaf in spring-time." ~Martin Luther
