Today I woke up early, went downstairs, cooked breakfast and set off the smoke alarm because I like my bacon crispy.

J and Raven both rushed downstairs and looked at me like I had questionable domestic skills, but the bacon was delicious, and everyone needs a good wake up call every now and then. After taking time to air out the smoke and get ready for the day, we managed to get out the door in time for church. It was a great gathering (as usual), complete with a great message (as usual).

I always stare at this view on the way out, and today, J asked "don’t you want to take a picture?" Of course I wanted to take a picture.

So, maybe spring has a redeeming quality: baby turtles (and baby geese).

Happy Easter!
