Recent delights:

     My new vacuum cleaner. Watched the price on Amazon.com for weeks, and it dropped the morning of St Patrick's Day. Picked it up at UPS after work on Tuesday, and on Friday finally got to take it out and have a big vacuuming spree. It works wonderfully--especially compared to my other vacuum cleaners, which are both over 10 years old.

     I love Etsy! On Friday I got some painted metal fish made in Haiti, of all places, to hang in my bathroom. They look great, and it is also sweet to have a tiny, tiny part of helping the economy in that struggling nation.

     Happiness is a weekend in which I am NOT going in to work, or working from home. Yay!

     It was a blessing, while working on a craft project today, to get to savor the first two movements of The Easter Symphony by David Holsinger, the latter half of Handel's Messiah, and the soundtrack to The Passion of the Christ. Three very different and gifted interpretations of a world-transforming event.

     Today is the LAST day of Lent! I'm very eager to have pizza, chocolate, and orange juice back in my life again, starting TOMORROW! =D

Thanks! It's really good on the carpet and the stairs. It was funny that Shado figured out it was a vacuum cleaner before I even turned it on--but he did hang around to watch for the first few minutes.

Happy Easter to you too. He is Risen!
