Many of you know today is Palm Sunday.
I was very happy when the greeter handed me a palm frond this morning as I walked into church.
My heart was a teensy bit sad to celebrate Palm Sunday differently today than we have for the last several years. Typically, we'd gather outside of church, read some scripture, then all walk into the sanctuary together singing hosanna! and waving our palm branches.
Our pastors did something creative so my sadness was fleeting. And it was probably best we didn't gather outside because it FREEZING and still snowy from yesterday's winter storm.
This was the view from my front door this morning.
See why we stayed inside all day yesterday??? (I think we ended up with 8 inches of snow and drifts up to 3 feet!)
And here are some pics I took while driving to church. It look so pretty doesn't it?
I had planned to unplug this week. And then I realized that I started this 10 on the 10th thing and the tenth of April happens to fall on Good Friday, which falls during my week of being unplugged. A dilemna. Hmmmmmmm...
I'm still not sure what I'm going to do about that. Maybe work on it tonight so it will auto-post? Or maybe just skip this month? Or maybe do a late edition? An Easter edition? Any ideas?
Honestly, I can't completely unplug because of my ongoing project, but I am definitely taking a break from blogging/reading blogs/Facebook/Twitter. I know it will be hard, but I also know it will be good.
I guess this is good-bye until next week. *sniff sniff*
(Oh, and it just started snowing again and Sarah's been singing, "I'm dreaming of a white Easter." I wouldn't be surprised. It's sorta the norm where we live.)
