I am back to blogging now...Holy Week and Easter are behind me now! What a great feeling to have it all finished! Everything went so well. It was really beautiful!
The week before Holy Week, we lost one of our retired Bishops. We were sorry because he was such a lovely person and will be sorely missed. I have played for priests' funerals before, but never for a Bishop! It's a three day group of events!!! And this was the week before Holy Week! I could not believe it, but everything was wonderful. It was a joyous funeral. We just had to juggle things greatly at the last minute! Bishops from all over came--here is a photo of them during the processional hymn. Quite an impressive bunch!
I went shopping at the Salvation Army (after leaving some donations!) and couldn't pass up this little strawberry picture. It was a whole dollar!! I plan to take it apart and make a little pillow ornament with it! So sweet. I always feel bad to see someone's hard work end up in a junk store!
You all know how wild I am about my sweet kitty Omar! I got him a little t shirt. You can see that he is not a fan of t shirts! His expression is priceless! I guess I'm just not going to have a cat that wears clothes!!! hahaha It even says "mommy's little dude" on it! hahaha
I'm embarrassed to show my Easter tree now, but I will do it anyway!!!! It was cute and I enjoyed fixing it. I will pull off the obvious Easter things and add some flowers and butterflies to make it a Spring tree!
I love all my sweet bunnies and carrots!
Finally, here are a few photos of the Cathedral decorated for Easter. It is truly a stunning place!
Our weather has been delightful in Mississippi, except for the pollen and oak tassels!! Everyone is snorting and snooting! But that's just how it is at this time of year. These azaleas were so pretty at the rectory. The bushes are so full!
Thank you for stopping by and please come back soon! I hope I will have more posts and finishes to show very soon! I am planning a big finishing day--my stack is growing and I'm very anxious to jump in and get some things done! Now that Easter is over, we have a long stretch of calm regular Sundays! YAY!! Nothing special! I feel like I will finally be back in my normal life!
