Happy Easter!

Today is bright and sunny warm, even if the breeze is a bit strong. We went to my brother's parish for the holiday. I think there must have been at least 300 people at the English Mass this morning --- it was nearly standing room only.

Sounds like Mass is out and the egg hunts have begun. They do it in age groups so the little ones get some candy. One year it was pouring so they had to be staged in the parish hall. It turned into a free for all, at least with the older kids.

I was the Easter Bunny's helper this year, so I made sure that my goodies did NOT include any licorice jelly beans. Bleahhh! On the other hand, that leaves more for those who like them. :o)

Have a Hoppy Easter!

Rain, Rain, Go Away

Last week at work we had a drain pipe leak into the store during a big storm. We lost about $3000 worth of inventory. The pipe has been fixed, but we've had a big trashcan under the missing ceiling tile just in case. Tuesday we had another major storm --- several places nearby got over 7". Business was very slow all day, but as my boss said, the roof didn't leak and the power stayed on, so we had a good day!

I am writing this on my dad's computer because I still can't log into Blogger from my own. I've done everything they suggested --- clear the cache, delete cookies, check javascripting, even turned off my firewall for a bit --- and I still can't log in. :( So my posts will probably be erratic for a while.

The lady has to be buggie!

So, this is my first real blog. You don't know what I went through to get here: 2 computers, three million and six attempts to log in, the works. In the process I acquired yet another email address :( and learned how to use chat. :)

I don't know how regularly I'll be posting, but I'll be back soon to show off some of my hard work. Right now, it's dinnertime!
