This bunch of lettuce grew in our backyard, without us planting it, between a few bricks, we did have this variety that we sowed by seed in the very back of our garden last year.

Yesterday we celebrated Pascha! So, Christ is Risen! We had a midnight church service and all 6 of us went. We went to my mom's house for dinner yesterday. Bright Monday Liturgy this morning. Do you know the story of the RED egg? Mary Magdalene, who was equal to the Apostles, wanted to spread the news of Christ's Resurrection. Due to her status as a Roman patrician, she was able to get an audience with the emperor, Tiberius Caesar. The emperor scoffed, “How could a man rise from the dead? It’s as impossible as this white egg turning red!” Immediately, the egg turned a brilliant red color. Many icons of St. Mary Magdalene show her with a red egg. And so, we color eggs with yellow onion skins boiled in water.
Our youngest is officially 2 and a half! He's still breastfeeding. I am trying to get him to drink more cow's milk, but he begs and cries for mama milk several times a day. We've been getting local Snowville Creamery milk, which is nice. I'm thankful I've been able to breastfeed.
Have a great week!

View of the full moon from our kitchen window in the morning.
Beautiful cloud formations early one morning.

I crocheted this! The easiest part was when I made the tassel, on the zipper ...and gave it to a sweet 3 year old girl I know.
Now, I plan to start on making another zippered fabric pouch with crocheted cover.

How do you show you care for someone? Showing them respect, calling them by their name, or doing something meaningful together? A friend gave me this pretty green, white and pink house plant, as a thank you for watching her daughter.
Many many violets this year! I intended to make jelly, but we made violet lemonade instead!
