So sorry it has been two weeks since I posted. Alot has been (deep breath), here goes:

Last week, I lost a dear friend...her name was Mary Lee but we all called her Sissy. She was 4 ft, 9 inches, all muscle, I called her Tigger..."the wonderful thing about tiggers, is tiggers are wonderful things...." because she always seemed like she had springs in her feet. She was an incredible athlete, and excelled in every sport she ever tried, including..and yes I am serious, basketball. She was funny, irreverent, sarcastic and generous and I miss her so much that it hurts. I see her face and hear her laugh all the time. She was young, and beautiful and leaves behind so many loving friends that it is hard to imagine that she is actually gone....there is a saying in the Book of Common Prayer that says "in the midst of life we are surrounded by death". I understand that now...and also understand that pain and grief have moved into my "house" for awhile and maybe even forever. But I will learn to live with them....and accept them and maybe even learn from them. So, treasure your loved ones even more...don't settle for mediocrity. Sissy lived her life 110% and I owe it to her to return the favor.

God take her soul and bring her to You!

St. Mary's Theater 2007--Senior Brunch!
We ate, drank, laughed, played piano, was wonderful. Truth is, now that show is over, we are all so sad and depressed that we don't know quite what to do. It is hard saying goodbye to a show, especially one like "Songs for a New World".

Some Easter eggs we did last year. We blew them out and then painted them....not sure if we will do more this year.
A beautiful array of spring bulbs, compliments of my theater students. The daffodils are blooming all over and it is wonderful!
My Easter bunny "family". Done by a local artist here in town: Natalie Silitch. AJ likes to rattle off names for all of them...

Went to the Baldwin Hall craft fair and came home with these cuties. They are boiled wool. I have five of them in different shades....again, I love getting unique items like this that were done by a local artisan.
I wish you all a blessed Easter!
