Saturday and Easter Sunday…..both nice weather days.
Saturday Kelly joined his church skeleton crew for recording the Easter Sunday service for our church. All week, the faithful folks of Grace Community Church have been providing a virtual link to our church family and Sunday was the culmination of that week – Kelly and Pastor Glen – our two church pastors, have been switching off preaching as this physical distancing has been going on and Glen was the lucky one to get Easter – and it was a great service.
We went to the barn and did stalls while Char had her lesson. We got them done in just over 2 hours – a new record for us – and had a great time with the horses and kittens! Char rode Valkyrie – a 13 year old draft cross mare who is still considered “green” – she had been a field horse for the first 11+ years of her life and has found a home at the barn being a lesson horse. She is sweet and kind spirited and while she doesn’t know the finer parts of showing in horse jumping (things like flying lead changes and such), she is a willing participant and rarely has a bad day. I like Val a lot.
Over the weekend we “talked” a lot on Zoom and Facebook video chats. It is fun – and a neat way to stay connected during this crazy time!
Sunday – Easter – we watched church on line, checked in with family and ate a fabulous meal prepared by a local caterer (Mezzanine Catering out of Dover, NH) – we are trying to support local business and since we usually have a huge Easter dinner, it felt nice to set the table up fancy and just reheat a wonderful meal prepared and delivered on Saturday! We sat outside a lot, chatted with 3 sets of neighbors in our own yards while the dogs played (this situation is really making for a great dog’s life) and Cooper, Char and I took a long walk out back in the woods.
It was the most relaxing Easter Day I have ever had as an adult.
Days 27 and 28 and counting….
