Popcorn balls, bags of peanuts, soda and beer were featured front and center in the grocery aisle. Indians shirts and hats were around every corner, on employees and shoppers. After a cold and snowy winter, on this gorgeously sunny and balmy day, Baseball Is Back in Cleveland.

Spring Is Here

It's raining instead of snowing. :) Seriously, we went out to dinner with friends last night, and the water was deep enough on the roads on the way home that my battery light came on temporarily. The raindrops also threatened to turn to snow briefly, but it was still rain when we got home. At least we are getting more sunshine, and I'm hearing more birds. Those are good things. Also good: the girls are spending more time outside instead of inside on the computer or whatever. I'm also trying to walk every day, or at least when it's not pouring down rain.

Easter 2008

I hope you all had a blessed and happy Easter. I am so thankful for Jesus' resurrection; it gives me hope to face the future. After church, we went to my in-laws, and had a nice time. The girls colored eggs with their aunts; I was glad to avoid the mess for one year. :) I was pretty good about not eating too much, or too many sweets, except for the ice cream cake my sister-in-law got to celebrate her husband's upcoming birthday. For you locals, it was from Handel's. I couldn't turn down a nice big piece!

Sick of Snow

Seems like Easter would not be Easter in Ohio without some snow. We got a fresh coating today, just when most of the huge piles from last week's snowstorm had disappeared. How discouraging. Definitely puts a damper on my desire to dress up for Easter, when I know it will be cold and probably snowy.

Cooking... Or Not

Yesterday we went out to eat with friends for lunch. For dinner, my daughters made homemade pizza (with pre-made dough.) Today, there was a luncheon at church in honor of our new confirmands. Tonight, I browned the meat and my youngest daughter is making the pasta for our meaty pasta dinner. You can't beat that!

I'm Still Out Here

I'd like to thank you all for your prayers and concern. I've really been struggling lately, and it helps to know there's people out there who care about how I am doing. I'm still not back to 100%, but I'm getting there. There's been several people IRL who have helped, especially the Presbytera, the Chaplain, and the members of Homestead Lutheran Academy. I wouldn't be able to make it through this without all of you.

The Latest

I haven't been feeling so well lately. I'd appreciate all of your prayers.
