Easter was great. I celebrated first at my church, and then high-tailed it across the cities to get to Aaron's church for their last service. Then nine of us got together for Easter dinner at a nearby Old Country Buffet--I have not been to one of those in ages. The massive array of entrees (and desserts) certainly made for a fabulous way to celebrate the end of Lent, as well! It was even more precious than past Easters, because the Alzheimer's symptoms are advancing so quickly for Joe.
It has been delicious enjoying orange juice in the mornings again, after 40 days of nothing but water. Had to splurge and enjoy fruit drinks at work for a couple days as well.
Got a treat on the candy side as well--Denice at work very kindly surprised me with a set of six truffles from Legacy Chocolates to thank me for all the test scanning I did for her area a month or so ago. YUM!
Thanks to World Magazine's website, I was thrilled to find out about a fundraiser to help out Mrs Stulzman of Arlene's Flowers, who has won my utter respect for her gracious and unflinching character with the ordeal she's been put through. Such a joy to make a 'sizeable' contribution after months of wishing I could help. I really want to be like her when I "grow up"!
It took in the vicinity of three months of hard work, but I have finally toppled over the finish line for pass 2 in my Geren book 1 revisions. Only 5 passes left to go, ha ha ha! (But at least pass 2 is by FAR the hardest!)
