"Christ the Lord is risen today, Alleluia!" This is one of my favorite holidays because it reminds us of Jesus' sacrifice for us. I was never raised on Easter being about bunnies, candy, egg hunts, etc. My parents always taught me the true meaning of Easter, and for that I am grateful. Singing the "Hallelujah Chorus" in church this morning really gives you a rush (and maybe a sore throat if you're a soprano like me) of thankfulness for God's love & mercy.
On another note, I planted things in my garden today! The weather was a perfect spring day in Seattle so I took advantage. I planted cabbage starts I got for free along with radish, snap pea, carrots, kale, and swiss chard seeds. I was hoping to get lettuce mix and spinach seeds planted as well, but I ran out of daylight. The rhubarb, chives, lemon balm, raspberries, and strawberries are growing nicely. I can't wait for that first rhubarb crisp or pie! Hopefully the rain holds off for a few more days so I can finish planting lettuce and spinach, and also plant some seeds in starts to put in my greenhouse. I take pictures along the way for y'all to see. :)
Here she is sniffing/nibbling on my pants. Just too cute!
