We walked every day this week except yesterday because of the winds and crazy intermittent rainy weather. Today as I type this there are tiny snowflakes - what? I remember one Easter when there was about six inches of snow and my spring dress with short sleeves was very lacking as we headed off to church. Let's hope there isn't a snowfall this weekend.
I believe this is the first Easter I will not be with my family. The first Easter I will not be physically attending Mass. I will be watching virtual Mass on Youtube though, and it counts! I'll be missing my family but you know what? We will have other Easters and we will gather soon before you know it. I am grateful everyone is healthy and safe. I am hugely grateful for technology!
I have an Easter meal planned and of course we have some much needed Easter candy for the two of us.
I have phone calls, texting and zoom meetings to be with my family. This will go down in my journal as a learning experience like never before and memories will be made no matter what.
I finished knitting my orange sweater last night. Today I'll bury the threads then soak and block the finished project. I enjoyed the knitting and the problem solving but I'm excited to not have pile of wool on my lap when the weather is getting warmer (except for today...).
I don't know if I mentioned this but my son accepted a professor job at Purdue University in Indiana. He will start his employment in August sometime. I'm not sure what the timeframe of his relocation will be since the USA is on a pause button I'm assuming sometime in July. So he will be 9 1/2 hours drive away from us depending on traffic.
Luckily he will be in the same time zone AND we can see each other in Pittsburgh when he is visiting his girlfriend's relatives in southeastern Ohio and I'm visiting my family.
We are happy he is happy.
I am knitting more than usual but I am not reading or painting as much as usual. I need to reassess how I'm allotting my time and adjust accordingly this coming week. I'm getting better at not reading the news as much. That is a very good thing.
