Good morning. Gosh, I was hoping to sleep a little longer this morning, but Pogo woke me up early so that I could help the Easter Bunny with his basket deliveries. Once that was done, I could sit back and enjoy an Easter morning service on TV.
I remember years ago when I was younger, getting up before sun up on Easter morning to go to an outdoor sunrise service. Local churches would hold their services in an open field or near the ocean or a pond. It was truly wonderful. Nowadays, this old body doesn't get around as much so I watch the service on TV.
Friday night, the rains got here, along with thunder and lightning and heavy winds. By mid morning though, all but a few light winds had stopped and the sun was shining brightly. It turned out to be a really beautiful day. Friday night, I had boiled up a large batch of eggs, and yesterday I decorated all of them.
I also finished the Aruba Sea afghan, and was able to start a new project. This time I'm working on a "simple rectangle shrug." It's fun to be working on something other than an afghan, but this item requires a lot of counting to make sure I have the correct amount of stitches on each row.
I also have a photo of my new toy that arrived in the mail a couple of days ago. It's a set of lenses for my cell phone camera. It has a telephoto lens, a macro lens, a fisheye lens and a wide angle lens. There's also a mini tripod, a camera holder and a bag to carry it all in.
So far, I've only tried the macro lens (hand held) but I'll try it again later using the mini tripod. It seems my hands are not as steady as they were not so long ago.
The Easter service is over now and I'm watching a program about the story behind some of our most loved hymns. It's really quite interesting to learn how some of these magnificent songs came about.
The other day, I took Joe to the bank, and while I was waiting for him (to come out of the bank) I took some photos of a nearby hedge that was filled with little sparrows. When someone walked too close to the hedge, the tiny birds would disappear into the hedge. Then one little sparrow would poke its head out to see if all was clear. After giving a little signal, lots of tiny sparrows started popping out of their hiding places.
Well, that's about all my news for this morning. I wish you all a Happy Easter. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a beautiful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
