I thought the clouds would break and we would have a sun-filled Easter Sunday, but sadly no.
Like I said in my previous post, our Easter service started at 11 p.m. Saturday night so we ccould celebrate Christ’s resurrection as soon at Easter Sunday got underway (midnight)!
By 9 p.m. last night (Saturday), I was dragging and knew it was going to be very difficult to stay away! After our 2.5 hour service, I finally crawled into bed around 2 a.m. last night/this morning! Yet, my internal clock woke me up at 6:30 a.m. this morning. I figure I’ll just go to bed early tonight.
I had a light breakfast because I knew we would be heading to my in-law’s church for an Easter brunch in a few hours.
A Green Monster because I knew I wouldn’t be getting many veggies today!
I also toasted half of a bagel and spread a little peanut butter on it. I love crunchy peanut butter. I love crunchy foods to begin with!
Today turned into a progressive Easter celebration.
Meal #2: Brunch at my in-law’s church
biscuits and gravy + eggs + ham + hash browns
It was a treat for me to have biscuits and gravy. Usually I would shy away from something like this, but I guess today I felt like I would splurge a little!
I have not had orange juice (or actually any juice) in such a long time that the juice tasted extremely sweet, and I didn’t even like it.
After the brunch, we attended a worship service at my in-law’s church.
During the next couple of hours, I spent my time prepping for the week and running a couple of errands.
Meal #3: Dinner at the church Craig and I attend.
We attend a church with a high population of Greeks, so there was a lot of Greek foods.
lamb soup, orzo, asparagus, rice, chicken, potatoes, and sweet breads
I also went back for a small plate of dessert samples.
Once again this weekend has disappeared, and it is time to go to bed to get some rest.
I hope your weekend was a good one!
