Hello! Happy Monday of Holy Week, my friends. This past weekend proved to be about as full a weekend as we have had in quite some time. Let's begin way back on Friday night. We planned on attending a fish fry at a local parish, followed by cookie decorating at Peyton and Chris's house. I was still feeling the effects of the chest cold and opted to stay home and rest. I heated up some pierogies, took a long, hot shower, put on fresh pajamas, and snuggled on the couch. I was so glad that everyone else could go and that they kept me updated with pictures throughout the night. I was so happy to see our traditions continue and how much fun the kids have together. Peyton made the cookies and had everything ready for the decorating. She also made our favorite bunny cake!! And it was DELICIOUS! They brought me some home, thank goodness.
Saturday was windy, cold, and rainy, and Steve and I were still coughing. Although I wanted to attend Palm Sunday mass, I knew that had I been there and someone near me was hacking and coughing like we were, I would not have been thrilled. So we stayed home and planned on watching mass on television. What we didn't plan on was this.
Trees and power lines were down right outside our house. We lost power around 5:00 Saturday evening, so our night consisted of cozy and candles. Fortunately, we were able to watch a mass using data on our phones. The power came back on in the middle of the night, so by morning, some of the perishable things in the fridge were less than desirable. A positive to the entire thing was no one was hurt, and I took the opportunity to clean and scrub the refrigerator!
After the marathon clean-out the refrigerator session Sunday morning, Steve and the kids left for the Penguin game! Flynn is a huge fan and was so excited!
