Friday fragments

Welcome to Friday fragments, my weekly recap of topics too big to forget, yet too small to be their own post.

Mon the stained glass people called to say our 3 window inserts were finished. They came that evening and installed them.

Whereas they aren't exactly what we pictured, we still like them and we got a great deal on them.

Spouse & I are both off today for 'Good Friday'. I scheduled a locksmith to take a look at a lock that stopped opening, and a landscaper to give us an estimate on fixing our yard up. Since the construction I think the grade of the yard isn't right for draining water to the street, and we have little to no grass left; its all weeds. So we'll see what they come up with.

Please take a moment to watch this video of a truly inspirational young man. He truly puts challenges and limitations into perspective.

Still no replacement for our totalled Honda CRV, but our friend Bryan said he thought there would be 3 possibilities for us at the auction today, so we'll see what he comes up with on Mon.

We're going to VA on Sat morning for the Easter weekend. We're meeting our realtor Betsy at noon to see another condo, then meeting Kerry & Hugh for lunch at 1:30. Then my old friend (and gay mentor) Patrick is coming to see us at Spouse's mom's house later that afternoon. I haven't seen him in about 20 years (that story will be forthcoming) and he and Spouse have never met. It should be a spectacular day!

Sun is Easter so we're planning to return to the old church where we used to be members so we can see the building improvements and many old friends. Later we'll have a big Easter meal with family and head back to DE. The weather is supposed to be very good this weekend (sunny and warm) so that should just make the weekend even better.

I hope everyone has a nice Easter!

The stained glass looks great!

Weather here is very springlike - warm, mostly sunny. It's nice, but the pollen is too much for my allergies.

Y'all have a Happy Easter!

I like the stained glass, kind of funky pattern but it looks good!

The feast of Spring (Aka Easter) is moving along as scheduled. Of course it being the 3rd of the month the local supermarket was mobbed and pretty much picked clean.

The windows look great. If you had just described them, I wouldn't have doubted they would work - but they really do.

Ahh, all caught up with you now. The car, the meals, the movies, the condo, the celebrity outings. You have had a busy couple of weeks!

I love the inserts as well. The green colour is fab. Is it olive?
