Gosh.......I hope not!
Because lately it seems I have the best of intentions to get things done, and they just do not materialize. I am still nursing a swollen spleen and the fatigue from chronic/remitting Epstein-Barr, but my spirits are good overall. I do get somewhat depressed because I do not know how many times I can repeat this cycle before I become bedridden, but I do still have hope that the many prayers floating around out there will give me Divine strength and healing. So don't give up on me just yet!
Evidently- from several emails I received over the weekend- I did not get something quite right on my Linky and there was an issue with the hook-up, so I will try to remedy that this week and try again. I had set it up ahead of time since my sister was coming to visit, and did not get a chance to check it out on Saturday as we were a little bit busy.
On Friday we set out on our annual trek to an event called Antique Alley about an hour South of where I live. We had a VERY strong cold front blow through on Thursday evening that missed my area, but hit the Cleburne area quite hard. A lot of vendors get set up the evening before the event, as you can imagine, and they sustained quite a bit of rain and hail damage. But, to add insult to injury on Friday the winds were exceptionally strong- with gusts to 40 mph!- and we witnessed whole tables being flipped over and numerous glass breakage and VERY frustrated sellers. We did take refuge for awhile at Whipp's Farm that did provide some breaks from the wind and got some great deals as well! Here are a few pics from Whipp's:
I got several nice items from Whipp's Farm! My favorite was this sweet little box for $3
The best part came when I opened it!
Surprise! It was filled with Bible verses!!
This is the first one I picked out of the box:
I also got some awesome antique books and one new hymnal. Most were from 1902-1903. This sheet music is from 1940..Use as ephemera for your craft projects, or just print it out and frame- but this is especially apropos!
Remember the 'reason for the season'.....I consider Easter the holiest day! Christ is Risen!!
Have a Blessed Easter holiday!
