Midweek relief

Wednesday, April 23, 2014

It seems that more and more lately, I am so happy when midweek occurs. I knowI can hang on for two more days at work. We will be having more changes at work in a couple weeks that will affect my job, so I will be learning new things..

It is back to cold weather here again.. high of 40.
Working in one's yard is impossible since everything is a sodden mess because it rains every other day and the snow has not melted underground, making the water free-standing.
I dream of the day when we get our three whole days of summer...

    I agree, would reallllly like 3 days of spring, in a row. Seems like winter has lasted a whole year.

Local factoid: A coworker of mine went to the bank last Saturday(Holy Saturday) with her daughter. When Kim got to the front door of the bank, she opened it, then looked inside and realized that there were no lights n, nobody around inside. The bank was closed for the weekend!!

her daughter told her to go inside, but she said, "No way!". She called 911 on her cell phone and the police came in eh parking lot screeching tires and all!! It seems that when they closed the bank ON FRIDAY NOON!, they forgot to lock the front door!!!!!

Kim said she was so curious to find out what happened, she went back there yesterday and she did not recognize any of the employees!! They had replaced everybody! They, of course, could not elaborate, but the only saving grace in all of this is that nobody took the opportunity to take two and a half days to clean that bank out!! They closed noon Friday and did not open until 9 am yesterday morning!! A burglar could have cleaned their clocks!!

    When a teller asks if they can help me, I always joke and ask if they are giving out free samples. Now I know the answer is YES!!

  Whoever was in charge of locking the doors was in big trouble. . . . Now I wonder if everyone is going to try their doors when they are closed just in case?!

Blessed Easter Sunday!

Sunday, April 20, 2014

What a nice day for our Holy Day! I went to early Mass, came home, changed clothes, sat in chair and fell asleep for five hours!! After eight hours sleep last night!

DD opened the windows this afternoon when the temp finally got to almost seventy degrees! It is now four pm and I cannot believe I slept the whole day away.
Our parish is merging with my old parish, as of July. Our parish is larger, more modern in our followings of liturgy.. I am curious as to how the two will blend. I was a charter member of the old church, then got married in THIS bigger parish, I have been there for thirty years. They are my family ..

It feels like this is going to be a good thing for all involved, but I understand how they feel leaving their original church proper, THEIR church home for over fifty years. Only a building, but still...

our parish will also get a new name.. very weird for everybody..

It is all good in the end,,HE guides us...

    It can be very unsettling when mergers etc happen. My parish has had a few reorganisations over the last few years. I loved what you said about family. Easter Day I looked round my church and I was overwhelmed with a sense of belonging and fellowship. Happy Easter

    Sounds like a good thing. They might set it up so there are more traditional service and more contemporary for the other group. Is this possible?

Busy day.. organizing and cleaning at dad's house after our hair appointments, then back home to spring clean my whole kitchen. Not an easy task.
On to bill paying, deck brushing my deck and hopefully wheeling my BBQ out onto the deck. We never did get it out before because it kept snowing!

May all of my Spark friends enjoy the peace of the Easter weekend.

    This is such a busy time of year, I have the tendency to start to many projects at the same time, and then have to go around later and finish them.

Hope you have a Great Easter.
