Holy Thursday

Yesterday was one of those particularly wonderful days where your intentions meet with all of the mundane factors in a perfect blend and things go better than you dreamed possible.We headed out early to beat the traffic, had to make few stops and even would up getting to picnic for breakfast. This was one time inventions such as Fiber One Bars and bottled smoothies make perfect sense. Munching on these as well as fruit, while watching the earth wake up from it's winter slumber is something everyone should experience at least once in their life. It can make the rest of the busy times in our life a little more bearable. After breakfast we pushed on to our final destination- Holy Hill in Hubertus , Wisconsin.

Not our first trip there, and hopefully not our last. It is a beautiful peaceful place and we all benefited from the day to recharge our batteries. After that we stopped off at Golden Coral for a substantial lunch and then made our way back home, stopping off at a state park to stretch our legs and play on the swings. I think every adult should take a moment to swing on a swing set. It puts things in their real perspective , as well as being a lot of fun.

Today is going to be a day of grocery shopping and Holy Thursday services, so we began the day with our usual oatmeal breakfast. Today's bowl was pumpkin oats with bran, flax, crasins and goji berries and olive oil. I surprised my son with putting a Peep on the top of his. This year at long last he seems to really understand things like Easter, and it's kind of fun to do silly things to mark the difference.

I thought I was the only adult who still enjoys swing sets. My favorite is the tire swings.

I haven't been able to visit in a week or so I'm glad you're still going strong. :)

Happy Easter!

Sounds like a lovely day. I especially loved the "Peep."
Thanks for all of the support you give me. I hope your Triduum and Easter season are truly blessed!
