So many treats since I last posted!

     Found a wonderful passage in my devotional reading this morning that is just fabulous for The Great Wave. I'd tried and failed a few weeks back to find a theme quote, set it aside, and started praying recently. Wonderful to have it answered!

     My ears, they are better (or almost)! Sunday through Wednesday they were stuffed up each morning, and even when they got a little less plugged, I had some unceasing tinnitus in my right ear (rather like the sound of a seashell against it). It was frustrating feeling like my hearing was cut in half, and a bit bothersome at work at first. So I'm grateful it's basically gone, and I'm also grateful it wasn't bad enough to interfere with art or writing.

     Spotted a male bluebird on my walk to the bus stop this morning, being chased by what I think was a female one. I'm always surprised whenever I see a bluebird near home, as I think of them as countryside birds. A treat!

     Out to lunch for Coney Islands with two of my coworkers. The food was delicious, but I was also vastly entertained by the waiter, who practically threw our food at us, and the bill, and seemed very grumpy. I didn't know Heruvael had a job on the side of being a waiter at a bar! *cackles* He'll be 'Heruvael-waiter' in my mind forevermore, I fear!

     Got home to find an Easter card from my aunt and a package from my parents. I'm waiting on opening the Easter card and gift until Easter Sunday, but there was no WAY I was keeping my hands off that lemon bread. THANK YOU, MAMA! =D

LOL. Very entertained by your comments about the waiter. I'm sure Heruvael would sympathise with him.

Lemon bread sounds yummy!

Very pleased to hear that the ears have settled down. I think it would have driven me nuts!

I'm sure Heruvael would be equally grumpy if he had to work with humans every day. ;)

It is delicious! I'll have to try not to eat it all this weekend.

I'm glad it wasn't so loud as to be constantly noticeable; I feel bad for the people who have it worse--very distracting.

That is great on the answer prayer. What cause the ear problems?
Glad you are getting over it.
Bluebirds, how wonderful. I am jealous.
Did you leave a tip for Heruvael -waiter? Sounds like Grouch Cafe.
Glad you like the lemon bread.

I don't know what caused the ear problems, though since they popped up the first night after my donation, I can't help but wonder if there was a connection. I've never had it happen before.

It certainly was a treat to see one! Hopefully we can spot some mountain bluebirds in Yellowstone/Grand Tetons.

We did leave 'Heruvael-waiter' a tip, and I had to tell my coworkers about our childhood jokes with Grouch's Cafe.

I like it a LOT! Thanks!

Happy Easter!
Thanks for the Easter card--we received it yesterday. Christ is risen!


PS - Eliana loves the hyarmi at the left of the comments section...she thinks it's a cute tiggler (teddy bear)
