Mundane Monday Musings

I like alliteration . . . can you tell?

This is going to be stream of consciousness, so be prepared.

Word of the week — myopic:

Myopic — lacking foresight or scope; “a short view of the problem”;

Why myopic?  I have just been struck by how we all live in our own little bubbles, and we seem to think that what happens in our bubble is the most important thing in the world.  Dwelling on life in the bubble keeps us from thinking about the big picture, keeps us from reaching out, keeps us from being kind and charitable to people outside our bubble.

New Diet

No.  I am not going on one and telling you all my weight-loss goals again.  But a friend told me about a diet her sister is on, and she said it is working.  Here’s a link.  My friend is thinking of trying it.  It is interesting to consider.

Book Recommendation

I haven’t read this yet, but the same friend with the dieting sister recommended it, and it is now on my list of books I would like to read this summer.   Him Her Him Again The End of Him is a clever title, and I love the cover.  So why wouldn’t I read it?

Easter

Easter was good this year in many ways.  We attended a lovely Maundy Thursday meal/service at the church where I work.  I spent the day Friday hanging out with the kids, and we attended the Good Friday service at our church in the evening.  Saturday was busy with Breakfast with Bunny at the church where I work and then a few hours of relaxing and egg dying before going to a bonfire for the evening with church friends.  For Easter Sunday, after worship we had just our family at home for a traditional Easter meal.  It was much less stressful than cooking for company or even going to someone else’s house (though I want to do one of these most years).  We then went to a park for a bit in the afternoon, and just hung out at home in the evening.  I am so thankful for the Hope of Resurrection in my life, and I am reminded that I really didn’t understand how significant this hope is until I was an adult. Sure, I knew about Christ rising from the dead, but I didn’t really get how important His resurrection is to my life, to my salvation, to my eternity. Christ is risen, indeed!

Some pictures to close . . .

  1. I need to find out what sort of egg coloring you use. Ours are always washed out and pastel-y….I like your bright colors.

    Nice family photo. Everyone looks happy!

  2. Thanks for the thoughtful update. Love the pics, and I am glad you enjoyed a blessed Easter weekend. We too had a non-traditional (fajita!) dinner on Sunday with just our immediate family before making the drive to Azle to drop off our labbie. So thankful for our hope in Christ b/c of his Resurrection, and his ongoing work in all our lives!

  3. Brandy,
    I agree. We need to see each other again some time soon. I loved seeing the pics of the boys from Easter. They are so cute, and they are getting big.

    Angie,
    Nice to have you stop by. We used Walmart food coloring and white vinegar. Some of our nice colors came from using farm fresh brown eggs from one of our friends’ chickens. We kept dipping and redipping to get the colors we liked.

    Tricia,
    I was glad to learn that Lucy has found a new home and job even though I know you all will miss her. Glad you enjoyed your Easter, too.
