I think I went on Hiatus

I just realized that it has been a long time since last I blogged.

I haven’t been doing anything, honestly!  I just haven’t had much to say.

I made a nice dinner tonight.  Garlic potatoes and seasoned green and wax beans.  Yum.  I might still have a salad.  I think the potatoes really turned out well!

I have been having some trouble with my neck.  I think I am sleeping on it wrong because I wake up and it hurts terribly.  I have decided that one of my problems is that my pillows are old and somewhat flat.  Well, in actuality they are really flat.  Almost two dimensional flat.   So, today I ordered two new pillows.   I hope they will be fluffy and fluff up my head.  I got them on Overstock.com so the shipping was just $1.00.    Yay for $1.00 shipping!

It has been a busy week at church, what with Palm Sunday and Easter coming up.  And in order to be confirmed I needed to go to downtown Baltimore and have a teaching day with the Bishop.   Episcopalians are not Catholic but they have a similar church structure with a Bishop and he will be the man that will be at my confirmation.   I enjoyed meeting many people there and have really decided that it is a good fit for me.  There were several gay and lesbians present, even a member of the clergy and it was all very welcoming.    So, it is time I dusted off my Christmas decorations and start going to church again.   I know some of you are not religious and that is fine, too.   I just needed something in my life and I think I found it.

The only downside to the Bishop’s teaching day was the enormous number of teenagers present.  I guess that is natural, as you get confirmed as a teenagers usually, but there were a few adults in the mix and we felt kind of outnumbered.  And the teenagers were without parents so they were giggly and silly as teenagers are.   And at the end of the day we had a service and they made fun of the poor priest the whole time.   But he managed to hold his own and let it just go by him as he continued on.  At the library I would have personally escorted them all out.

I also discovered that at the Diocese center where the Bishop has his offices is an Episcopalian bookstore, and I love that.  It was closed by the time I got to it, but I know it is there now and the center is really close to my house.  And I just love a bookstore, so I am most happy with that find.

So  my next major holiday is Easter. I am going to be here with Chris, we are not visiting family so it will be a low key day.  And we are no longer eating ham anyway, so Easter dinner would be out.   I guess I can make some mashed potatoes and color a hard boiled egg, or two.   That would give me something to do!

Anyway I am back now.  Hopefully I will have the drive to write more frequently.  We shall see.

    Yes, it will be wonderful having the holiday with you, even if we just eat dinner at the Nautalus. 🙂 Hey, and Easter (Christian) and Ostara (Wiccan) are back-to-back this year. Huzzah!

    It’s the lack of meat in your diet that leaves you lacking the energy to post! Merry Easter.

    Don’t listen to Sidney Hound!! Stay Vegetarian! 😉

    Why don’t you pick up a nice Tofurky or something similar? There must be a Whole Foods or a natural foods store in your area. Check them out! 🙂
