Sorry this post is so late I moved last week and was without internet for a few days. It’s been a CRAZY WEEK. I’m just now having some time to sit down and put my thoughts together for this weeks link-up.
I have already scheduled next weeks post to go up so don’t worry the posts for Holy Week will go up as scheduled.
I still can’t believe that we’re almost to Easter. I cannot believe how fast Lent has gone and that tomorrow is PALM SUNDAY. So crazy! Some years Lent is slow other years it’s fast.
29. Pick something from Meg’s Lent list and do it.
Every year I always browse this list that Meg creates. I was SO busy this past week I didn’t have time to look at it and give anything up pursay but I did just browse it and I have been trying to not spend as much money or eat out as much this lent.
30. Do you like the way Easter moves every year or do you think it should be the same Sunday of April every year?
Honestly, I hate that it moves every year. I know there is this big history and reasoning why it moves but I’ll be honest it’s annoying. I never know when it is and last year my non-practicing Catholic sister didn’t even know when it was and made other plans on Easter with some friends. That really made my mom and I upset (can’t blame us).
I think it would just be a lot easier on everyone if it was say the 2nd or 3rd Sunday of April every year.
31. Are you looking forward to Holy Week? What is your favorite part of it?
Yes and No. My mom is having surgery on Tuesday so I’m nervous for her and her recovery. But I normally do enjoy Holy Thursday and Good Friday services and try to attend. I have to work on Good Friday so I’m going to try and find a church that has an evening service as my church has it at 3pm.
My dad used to like and visit several churches on Holy Thursday. I haven’t done that but I always think of him on Holy Thursday.
33. Are you going to dye Easter Eggs this year?
Yes. I always dye eggs on Easter even though I don’t have kids. I just enjoy it and it is a festive way to celebrate. I like hard boiled eggs so it doesn’t bother me. My mom already bought us an egg dying kit. Just have to get some eggs.
34. Share this week’s Lenten Meal
I had Tomato Basil Soup again this week. It’s so good. YUM. This week I put some pastina/orzo noodles in it along with cheese tortellini. It was really good.
