1. Palm Sunday - And as he rode along, they spread their cloaks on the road. As he was drawing near—already on the way down the Mount of Olives— the whole multitude of his disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen, saying, "Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!" (Luke 19:36-38 ESV)
2. Flatbread - My church celebrates Passover with a 1st century style feast. This year, I gathered with some wonderful women and we were a flatbread factory. We made over 300 pieces. It's really easy and tasty. We had a lot of trouble with blowing electrical circuits, but once we got started... we were done before we know it. I'll post the recipe soon. I was so blessed by Dorothy, Stacey, Kristina, Lauren, Jenny and Trish.
3. We've been moving stuff all around our house. Grom has a new bedroom with his own bathroom. His new room doesn't have a closet. We are working on getting him a closet system, but until then we are making do with an armoire that we have. Grom thought it would be a good place to sleep. He had us close the doors and would've slept there all night. We moved him to his bed when we went to bed. There just something not right about your kid sleeping in a closet.
4. Dog is gone. Dog was a great Westy. At one point in our lives, Surferman was buying VW Vanagons so often that we were getting them confused. We couldn't identify them by color because we had 2 blue ones at the same time. We started an alphabetic naming scheme. Amazingly we didn't get past "D". Dog, the only surviving camper van, left our home last week. It was just time. The hardest part of selling it was letting go of all our romantic dreams of camping and traveling and surf trips and...
He's shopping for a Sprinter van now. So don't feel too bad for the man.
5. Gladiolus or Gladiola or if you have just one - Gladioli. Another of my favorite flowers. I have a big tall vase that is perfect for keeping these tall beauties from tipping over. What I love about them is that you buy them closed and they slowly open all the way up the stem. They will last two weeks; as the lower blossoms fade and wilt the upper blossoms continue to pop open. Beautiful.
I'm a little late with this week's favorites. It was a busy week, E-week (the week before Easter) always is when you work at a church. It was a great week. I pray you have a blessed week full of favorite things.
