Weather: Rainy and windy.
Palm Sunday: Church on Zoom leaves a little to be desired when one is used to all the fun of a usual Palm Sunday service with the little kids marching around with palm branches, but our pastor encouraged involvement and most parents filmed their kids waving the branches around inside their house or outside. For the children's sermon, the pastor played this Lego Palm Sunday video. I love it!
Completed Books: I completed three books this week, all poetry books by Mary Oliver. In fact, throughout this post I am including one-line quotes from several of her poems.
Books in progress: I am working on seven other books! I decided this week to read a little of each one each day, to treat these project books, like a project. Ha! Check my progress in the graphic below. Dune, A Beautifully Foolish Endeavor, and A Promised Land are all audiobooks, the last two I'm listening to with my daughter or husband. Progress is so slow that way.
Family: Our dear 6-month grandson finally got some relief from his horrible eczema that was causing so much discomfort. His parents demanded that the doctor give them something prescription strength and almost overnight his rash diminished and he is able to calm down easier. In fact, on Friday while I was babysitting, he took a four-hour nap. Poor little guy can finally relax. While his brother was napping, Ian and I did preschool. We created a yarn cross project given us by church, painted rocks so we will be ready to hide them in the forest the next time we venture in, we hid and found plastic Easter eggs over and over, played several games, and read several books discovering a book, Put Me In the Zoo. That one got read three times.
Suez Canal-Evergreen Memes: I know that it isn't funny that a huge container ship is stuck in the Suez Canal, but the memes that others have created about it are hilarious. Here are a few (well, more than a few) of my favorites:
5. You may not be able to read the small print. It says, "A Diversity and Inclusion Workshop" vs Systemic Racism.
10. And finally from the much maligned Dr. Suez Canal...
