I know that in some places the Monday after Easter is considered a holiday but I don't know what the deal is here in Alberta Canada, nor it doesn't matter. Monday is the one day a week I usually take off.
Easter weekend is usually a full weekend for your average pastor/priest, some much more so than others, and so this past week has been full for us as well. I was really looking forward to the break today, I just didn't know how much I was anticipating it.
We got Lauralea to bed at a good time last night but then it got a bit late as I finished up some things and puttering around the kitchen, cleaning, sorting etc. Anyway I got to bed about the time I normally fall asleep, but last night I was out like a light.
I recall getting up about 6 am for a nose blowing session and toilet break, but then right back to bed and sleep. When the light in my room finally woke me up it felt like about 9 am. Like I had slept solidly without waking and sleeping that often comes when I try sleeping in. So when I looked at the clock and saw 11:49 am I was very surprised. I can't remember the last time I did that kind of oversleeping. Nice.
So, the day is half over and I missed it, which is the downside of sleeping in. But Lauralea is back in bed and Micah and I have settled down to the BBC Earth DVD. Supper will be delivered around 5 pm and that all makes for today not being a bad day at all.
Now with easter behind us, it's time to start looking forward and planning the activities of Spring.
