I had taken the week off work with the idea of Finally Doing The Three Days Properly. I haven't been to a Good Friday service in years.
Plans got changed, however, when my cousin's daughter announced her engagement, and set the date for March 25 - Good Friday.
So I started the Easter feasting early. Saturday was my aunt's (grandmother of the bride's) big seven-oh, so the immediate fambly who was in town for the wedding continued the celebration there.
I had started the solemnity early, though.
I am tired after my doubleheader with Altar Guild, but happy. The music was outstanding (idasusan sang Handel's "I know that my Redeemer liveth" at 10 am) and the services were inspiring. The brass helped keep me awake, which I needed after waking up at 3:45 am!
Now I am going to look for something with protein in it to counteract all this peppermint bark (leftover from Coffee Hour), tidy up the house a titch, and consider going to sleep really, really early. A storm is rolling in, but I am glad that the weekend weather was so mild.
