Happy Easter!

It was a beautiful day to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. The weather was sunny and bright. Very cheerful and all that. Normally, all this sun would put me in a foul mood but it seemed fitting today.

We started off the day late to church, as usual, followed by our semi-annual speed walk from the parking lot to the church sanctuary, brutally cutting off the couple walking in front of us, all in an effort to snag what surely was the very last two seats in the entire church. Holidays are always crowded, usually with visiting family members and friends.

Every Easter and Christmas our church choir sings a cantata and this day was no different. The songs were lovely, as usual and I can't wait to re-join the choir now that I have my wings (read: license).

A couple of years ago at college, I saw a senior art show where the artist took the note sheets and bulletins from Sunday service and drew various things she saw: the pastor, church members, pulpit, chairs, whatever. I am unashamedly stealing her idea. Actually, my one excuse is that I've done this for years, just never made a project out of it. Here's today's:

Some choir members and backs of heads.

I feel oddly exhausted today. It may have something to do with the fact that I couldn't fall asleep until 4 am and then woke up at 7 for church this morning. I'm going to treat myself to some mint chocolate chip ice cream and hit the sack. School starts up again tomorrow, I have to be totally refreshed and ready to go.
