Resurrection


Halleluia! is the theme of the day, Easter Sunday for most Christians. Celebrating the renewal of life, in a continuation of a spring festival that goes back in history far beyond the historical Jesus.

This blog has been inactive throughout the Lenten season, and now it's back, so we're illustrating the concept of resurrection.

At my house, we're having a very quiet Easter--the man of the house had some minor surgery on Friday and he is recuperating, improving by the hour but still in need of nursing services. This is where those wedding vows ("in sickness and in health") come in.

Karen,

He has truly risen!

(Well.. for me it's next week, but that's what we say to each other in greeting on "Greek Easter")

Glad to see you back in action here. Looking forward to reading you regularly again.

Thanks for the Chihuly links. He gets no media coverage here in the opposite corner of the country.

As for Mr. B., the world's most impatient patient, he says he's going to carve a statue in my honor because I'm such a good nurse...he loves being taken care of! But I'm back to work now and he's pretty much on his own, except for my yelling at him when he has a stupid idea (like, today he thought he should go swimming. He has 16 surgical staples in his abdomen and he thought it would be a good idea to go swimming. After I yelled at him, he was like, "no? you don't think I should?" and then this afternoon, after I came home from work, I found him wading in the fishpond, rearranging the rocks to make it easier for the turtles to climb out. He's a lunatic, but he's my lunatic.
