My niece is a pastor's wife in Boulder, Colorado. She has determined that her family of six will eat soup for Lent. My mom mentioned this to me while we were chatting on the telephone. I think it's a good idea! Today, Bill's favorite soup is simmering on the stove. That's my pause. Soup for Lent. You can join the other pausers at Angela's blog. Wait until Sunday to visit this year's A Pause in Lent.
On to other things. I thought you make like to shop at the mall with me. Window shop. The Teavana store changes the displays often. Yay! I like these elegant pots, don't you? I BUY earthy chunky pots because I like to pretend I live at the End Cottage, but the two pots pictured below are lovely!
The Easter candy is packing the seasonal aisle at the grocery store! Yahoo! Oh, we love Easter candy around here.
And Bill brought me roses and the NICEST card because he is the NICEST person. Blessed.
James came over this morning so his parents could have a little more sleep. He napped, too. I had him so bundled that he got rather sweaty so I combed his hair. Kewpie!
I continue to enjoy my 5 dollar green polka dot table cloth. It matches my water bottle.
Ooops. More candy!
Making soup is a sweet human pleasure, isn't it? Can you believe how beautiful the beans are? The potatoes? WOW!
A newcomer! House Plant #2 has found a new home here. I'm SO itchy for gardening.
Here's a close up of HP#2
House Plant #1 is still receiving TLC and songs, words of encouragement and protection. She's nice.
Another shot of the roses. Red roses = LOVE
Apples. I'm so thankful that we have apples all year round. It's the teacher in me, I guess.
See? There is PLENTY of Easter candy for you, so come on over.
I made this bunny about 25 (wow) years ago. I went through a short doll making phase. Don't you like her Easter smile?
How about her long feet?
And from my birthday clown days, a bee puppet. You place your hand in the bottom and then your fingers are bee legs. It's fun.
We're going to eat the soup on Sunday (it's better after a night in the refrigerator). I DO love Sundays. I like going to church and sitting by Bill and our Jenny. I like Sunday afternoon because it's the very best napping time. I like Sunday evenings because I don't have to go to work the next day (I used to and that was okay, too). Even if it snows (weatherman says it will) I am VERY eager for Easter. Spring.
If our March comes in like a lion it will go out like a lamb. I'll take that!
Thank you for coming by to visit. I love it when you do.
