What I’m going to do today (God willing):
~ Bake hot cross buns (for tomorrow’s late breakfast–yum!)
~ Make carrot cake (a husband favorite–for after tomorrow’s dinner).
~ Cut cake into cross shape, (snitch a bit of the trimmings!), frost, and decorate with frosting flowers and the words “He is Risen!” (Now a family tradition.)
~Dust. Polish up dining table.
~ Iron hand-appliqueed-and-embroidered tablecloth and napkins (spring thing I sometimes use at Easter)
~ Arrange some “silk” Easter Lilies in a centerpiece.
~ Call friend who may be spending “Easter” afternoon alone and invite her to tomorrow’s dinner and some leisurely sit-and-chat time afterward.
What I’m doing right now (interrupted by writing this):
I’m sitting with a cup of good coffee, in a comfortable chair, reading and meditating on the rest of the gospel accounts, after the death of our Lord Jesus Christ (Mt 27:57-28:20; Mk 15:42-16:20; Lk 23:50-24:53; Jhn 19:38-21:25).
Preparation for tomorrow’s joy. And joy today. First things first!
