There was so much I wanted to do and be and yet time moves on with out me accomplishing all I want or feel I need to do.
Holy week for us is a very special week. It is full of excitement and plans and especially for us this year the return of two of our children from Uni along with a long awaited visit by grandparents and our son's girlfriend too.

We love the Palm Sunday Mass and this year we have been blessed by the way Mass was celebrated this year.
We have been doing many things over the last week as I truly wanted to avoid the pre-last night preparation that usually happens with preparing Easter Baskets and making items for the table so the children and I plan to have all our making things done by Wednesday which is the day the first of our arrivals graces our home.
So what have we been doing?
Well here is a pictorial brief run down on most of what we have done:
crack me' eggs.
Painting was very much a must do for just about everyone and as usual there are never enough eggs for everyone to paint
using this pattern for it and thankfully it is quick to make, now I have learnt some new stitches and made my own pattern for the tail
We finally finished the last of the moving in and this out door area is just perfect to sit and read or craft and watch the children play.
I'm not sure if that is all we have done in preparation for Easter.
I do know we still have quite a few things left to do including making skirts for us girls, using some of the fabrics from below, and cookies for everyone to eat.
Holy Thursday and our Seder Meal and Good Friday as well as the other preparations I need to do prior to that, including shopping for Easter Eggs and special meal food, oh and I had better buy some regular everyday eating food too I guess.
Needless to say we will be attending the Holy Week Masses and this takes up quite a bit of our week too.
So as we come into the last stages of Lent and our Holy Week preparations I pray you are all are as excited as we are about this coming festivities of Easter.
May you have a blessed Holy Week!!
Blessings to you and your homes,
