It has been a very frustrating couple of days as far as the internet goes. Seems that water got into the repeater on the tower and we were down and then patchy for a couple of days. Hopefully the problem is fixed.
I never posted pictures from Easter so I shall rectify that situation now.
Here is Kelli's baptism
Fr. Fred, Kelli, and Sam
Here are pics of the finished bathroom. I wish I could get a pic of the whole thing.
I went up to Mt. Pleasant today to drop some things at Good Will. I am cleaning out my craft room in preparation for a makeover - mostly stripping the wallpaper and painting it. On a whim I decided to stop at Kohl's to get some summer tops. Then I remembered that my nephew Cale gave me a Kohl's gift card for Christmas. I bought 3 tops and a pair of pants. I signed up for a card and supplied my email address. My total out of pocket cost was $19.00. After that I headed to Sam's club to pick up some water for Nina, a couple of things for Melisa, and a couple of things for us. Now I'm getting ready to go down to the dungeon -ooops-basement, to continue working on the inventory for our two spring shows. When I went down there earlier today, I noticed a sink and a granite countertop!!!! It will be totally great to have a sink down there instead of having to run up and down the stairs every time I need to wash my hands. It all depends on if they can find a good deal on a cabinet. The one that housed the old sink is unusable.
Word of the day:
Friday in the Octave of Easter
Today the Church celebrates : St Waldetrudis (+ c. 688)
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 21:1-14.
Jesus revealed himself again to his disciples at the Sea of Tiberias. He revealed himself in this way. Together were Simon Peter, Thomas called Didymus, Nathanael from Cana in Galilee, Zebedee's sons, and two others of his disciples. Simon Peter said to them, "I am going fishing." They said to him, "We also will come with you." So they went out and got into the boat, but that night they caught nothing. When it was already dawn, Jesus was standing on the shore; but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus. Jesus said to them, "Children, have you caught anything to eat?" They answered him, "No." So he said to them, "Cast the net over the right side of the boat and you will find something." So they cast it, and were not able to pull it in because of the number of fish. So the disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, "It is the Lord." When Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he tucked in his garment, for he was lightly clad, and jumped into the sea. The other disciples came in the boat, for they were not far from shore, only about a hundred yards, dragging the net with the fish. When they climbed out on shore, they saw a charcoal fire with fish on it and bread. Jesus said to them, "Bring some of the fish you just caught." So Simon Peter went over and dragged the net ashore full of one hundred fifty-three large fish. Even though there were so many, the net was not torn. Jesus said to them, "Come, have breakfast." And none of the disciples dared to ask him, "Who are you?" because they realized it was the Lord. Jesus came over and took the bread and gave it to them, and in like manner the fish. This was now the third time Jesus was revealed to his disciples after being raised from the dead.
