I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter.
Love the reminder that JESUS IS RISEN!
When I opened up Facebook on Sunday & saw all the Easter posts about Jesus & everyone going to church, I wish it was like that every day...
But let's take a quick look back at the whole weekend...
... made a stop at Target to get some raisins & pretzels for my race on Saturday. I tried to find something to wear for Easter & just am not having any luck this year.
... On the way home, I saw a hawk flying low & looked like something weird was hanging from his feet. I then noticed a squirrel squirming in his talons. OH MY GOSH!!!!!!!!!! I started screaming in my car like I was in the process of witnessing a murder. I was tramatized all weekend. I would randomly break out in tears over the weekend & just say, "Squirrel" ... this whole Circle of Life thing is rough on me
... finished knitting another hat. If only I could stop working on projects & take PICTURES of projects so I can get this Etsy store officially open.
... went to bed feeling nauseated & yucky. I knew it was nerves for the race.
... up at 6am & ran a 10 mile race (recap tomorrow)
... had to stop for a Starbucks Iced coffee after that run
... hot shower & then time to sit with a hot cup of coffee & do some Bible Journaling.
... it had warmed up since the beginning of the day (37 at race time to 70's in the afternoon). I ended up laying on the back porch doing stretches & more stretches & even more stretches. I didn't want those 10 miles creeping up on my legs.
... Got my Kindle, pulled up a chair & sat on the back porch in the sunshine for over an hour reading.
... Did a Jane the Virgin binge catch up. I was always Team Raf but ahhh - I may be turning to Team Matthew.
... Fell asleep early watching The Ten Commandments. It's one of Ricky's favorite movies ever. He was falling asleep before me & turned over & said to me, "I may be falling asleep but I am still listening. Don't turn it over"... he fell asleep & must have woken up to hearing a commercial. He sat up & said, YOU TURNED IT OVER! ... & then when he saw it was still on the same movie, he was able to fall right back to sleep.
|FUN FACT... Ricky randomly says this line in life at any given moment|
... Ricky put in a new fire alarm the day before & it kept beeping. Bruno doesn't handle high tone beeps well, so when it went off at 5:30am, Bruno woke me up freaking out... & then I was up ... DANG IT! So this weekend was a bust for sleeping in.
... I literally saw the same infomercial for the Total Body Gym on 4 channels at the same time.
... We went to Panera for breakfast before church & there was NO ONE there. Like, it was weird. Panera is always packed - especially at breakfast. It felt so strange.
... #EasterTogether at Southeast. As always - a wonderful message & a great time of worship.
Praise our Savior! HE IS ALIVE!!!
... Ricky & I went over straight from church to the movie theater to see what time Batman vs Superman came on. Ricky got the time wrong with the theater we were at, but we got so lucky because the girl said that the movie that had started 20 minutes before was just finishing up previews. We ended up sliding in 2 minutes before the movie actually started. YES! A Easter miracle! :) .... & PS - WHY do they show a half hour of previews anymore? I used to love them, but mercy, its kind of ridiculous now.
For the record, I really liked the movie. I got a little lost at some points - that's nothing unusual for me though - but I am always a fan of super hero movies. I really didn't mind Ben Affleck as Batman at all (We all know Michael Keaton will forever be the best though) ... & this Superman? He IS Superman. ... & Wonder Woman? OH MY GOSH - I can't wait for her line of movies now!!! I did get a little frustrated at Lex Luthor - I thought he was trying to act too much like the Joker. & I was having a little anxiety at the end of the movie. Let's just say I had to keep reminding myself, "They're filming the next Justice League" over & over again. Thumbs up for me.
... the thing I'm looking forward to is the next Xmen movie coming out in May!!! YES!!! I am such a fan of the Xmen - even if Wolverine isn't in it. Though he does make it better.
... Ricky & I headed out for lunch after the movie & let me tell you - the world seemed empty - with everything closed & families eating together at home apparently. We had our free range of places to eat with no wait. We went to O'Charley's because they have the BEST Black bean burger - I've bragged about it before. Only to order it & have the manager come out & tell us that they dont serve them anymore. NNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! ... we ended up leaving. See ya O'Charleys. You just lost a lot of business.
... 3rd Starbucks visit of the weekend.
... stopped by mom & dad's to see them for a little bit for Easter.
... so mad I didn't get a good picture of Ricky & I for Easter. I promise, we dressed up for the occasion.
... Finishing knitting another project - a yellow cowl. I'm LOVING the color of this one.
... closed out the weekend with, of course, The Walking Dead... & had to rewind & watch the last minute of the show like 5 times, even playing in slow motion to see if I could see what the HECK HAPPENEEEDDDDD????
& now we're back at Monday!
How was your weekend?

Did you see Batman vs Superman?
