Palm Sunday and Another Sunny Day

30 Mar

Life is a precious gift, but we realize this only when we give it to others.

Even though it was a lovely sunny Sunday, it was also a little sad. I took Mom and my sister, Jo, to the airport this morning for their flight back home. We had a very nice visit, but two weeks went pretty fast.

I was able to get back home in time to get to church for 9 o’clock Mass. Being Palm Sunday, we all gathered in the vestibule for the blessing of the palms and to process back inside, singing and commemorating Jesus’ entry into Jerusulem.

   

 

After Mass, off to the square for a yummy breakfast at Snug, sitting outside, bumping into friends, people watching, and enjoying the warmth of the day.

  

(Look at this empty chair. Very inviting. Come join me sometime.)

Then, I visited with my friends over at sweet Spot Bakery. Kaylyn asked me, “Why is there grass popping out of your purse, Miss Toni?” Her dad, Josh explained it was Palm Sunday. We chatted while I sipped iced tea and played Chopsticks on the piano with Kaylyn.

  

Does look kinda weird, doesn’t it? Stole this next picture from Mr. Josh’s Facebook page. I didn’t even notice him taking a picture. Too busy plunking at the piano.

  

Another sunny Sunday. I came home and went for a long glorious walk. I always appreciate the sun on my face, the breeze in my hair, and the beauty that surrounds my every step. I am blessed. HAPPY SUNDAY!

    Hello Toni! My name is Emilee. I’ve worked at Snug on the Square for about 4 years and I have to say, I just love the photo you took of our patio two years ago. I was wondering if I could feature your photo on our Instagram page and Facebook? I would give you full credit and even leave a link for others to check out your blog 🙂 Please let me know!

      Of course, Emilee. My friends and I have been going to Snug since day one. Sandra is a sweet gal and we all love her dearly. Anytime you have something to post on Facebook, I’ll share it on my page too. Friend me on Facebook. There aren’t too many Toni Andrukaitis names, well, except the EX husband who is Tony Andrukaitis, but he’s an ass hole, so you don’t want to friend him by mistake. Thanks.
