Friday morning thoughts

I probably have to tattoo myself today.

I have no idea what Boyd is going to have me to do, though I’ve been working on and we’ve been discussing components of my thigh mural, so probably something from that. I don’t know what.

Strangely, this doesn’t disconcert me. I’m not even nervous about it.

The morning breeze coming in my windows feels nice, and I can hear birds, and Betsy snoring.

I’m ravenously hungry this morning. I need some protein.

I get tomorrow off. Good thing since I have to marinate 20# of ribs and cook as much in advance as possible for the 12 of us and help the kids dye eggs.

We’re going to use silk neckties to dye eggs again this year. Last year we blew out the eggs, used the insides for omelets and dyed the shells (weighting them down with a plate). The results were beautiful.

Bunny Cake instructions

Sorry about the little, scribbled graphic.
But you get the idea.

Old ladies at church. LOL

Finished the shrug!

Thank you, sweet resurrected Lord. I am so tired.

And now I am SO going to bed.

G’night…

Easter morning thoughts

Our church does NOT do that “sunrise service” nonsense. Thank GOD.

Guess who stayed up until 2:30 and then overslept for the 1st service? Yep.

It’s all good, I’ll just cook this morning and THEN go to church the 2nd service instead of vice versa.

My kids’ easter baskets are little decoative gift bags with stuff in them. We also stuffed 84 eggs with candy & nickels for the hunt. Diantha stuffed them while I knitted.

I’ve already baked a cake. Ribs go in the oven next.

I’ve also done 120 crunches & 20 each leg stretches.

I might actually also take a shower.

or maybe not. Not sure Jesus smelled too good this morning either.

So does this look like fun in a bag?

Sunday excursions

  • We went and walked Walmart, buying cat food and Elixir of Life (this is Mountain Dew, for the woefully uninformed)
  • I made several middle-aged or older Baptists uneasy with my tattoos. Good.
  • Artemas informs me he has a major headache, thinks he’s getting sick and needs Nyquil, most likely effectively sticking me with the rest of the dishes.  But he’s listening to Robin Williams at top volume. Huh.
  • I need to scrub my bathroom today and make soap.  I can get in 3 batches.
  • I have to start a new travel fund for Wolf retrieval for Easter.  It would be nice if I had one of my own cars running by then, too.
  • Betsy is sitting on me, *braiding my hair. *pulling
  • Might go out for Nyquil for Artemas, it’ll give me an excuse to stop in Kohl’s and see if they have any cute tops for Easter that will go with a skirt I own and these shoes.

I have never missed church on Easter Sunday in my life.

But today I did.

I got up at 7:30.  Diantha and I were supposed to go ahead of the rest of the gang, on the motorcycle, and hold babies in the nursery for the 9AM service.  The guys and kids were going to come along for the 10:20 service.

I didn’t have fever, but I was still achey and too weak to brave 1/2 hour on the bike in the cold and then hold people’s babies once I got there.  

So I slept some more, got everybody up and out, and stayed home.  Artemas stayed behind to help me, for 3 reasons:  1) because I needed help 2) because my car was already maxed out on bodies, not room for another, and 3) nobody else in the household is qualified to ride the motorcycle.

Also I thought it wouldn’t be nice of me to show up looking spectacular (I do today, but it’s a total front) to church if I had called in to not work the nursery because I was sick.

So here I am.  But it sure felt weird.

I have the day off

Took Jacob for a job interview, which I hope he gets, because I hate to be cruel but I’ve been feeding and housing him since August and if he doesn’t get a job, he’s going to have to leave. I dunno where he’s going if he doesn’t start contributing, but he can’t stay here.

Went to the bank for cashier’s checks for my tattoo licenses & the filing fees for the kids’ court filing fees.

Went to the store for cough medicine, Easter stuff for the kids, and yarn.

The kids left to go to their dad’s. Artemas is leaving to go to a friend’s house in a little bit.

I made an awesome sub on a whole loaf of Italian herb bread, with 4 kinds of meat (of course pepperoni), 4-cheese blend, frizzé lettuce, Roma tomatoes, red onion, and deli-sliced dill pickles. Be jealous.

I started knitting a little shrug for Betsy to wear with her Easter dress, because they’re all of course sleeveless and it’s of course going to be cold.

I’m using Bernat Baby Blanket in white. It is a big fat fluffy chenille-type yarn that is knitting up FAST. I’m winging it without a pattern, top-down raglan with seed stitch borders. So far so good.

The house is about to be empty except for me and him. I might take a nap. Or at least do something that’ll make me want a nap.

Easter is 5 days away. 

It’s snowing.

And God isn’t finished with you yet.

Happy Easter!
