about sunday.

easter day was quiet in kingston springs. we watched out the living room windows as pastel-clad ladies strolled into the methodist church across the street. i've been sensing that true springtime is near because cardinals and bluejays fill our lawn. we're still running the heater off and on though.

we had a leisurely morning around the house, a day of rest more or less. i made an early easter dinner of ham & asparagus quiche, fresh fruit, roasted new potatoes, and avocado-tomato salad. we followed it with foil-wrapped chocolate eggs which eli enjoyed immensely.

after a brief afternoon nap, we headed to our evening church service. it was good to be among friends and to dwell on the Resurrection as we received communion. the sermon was particularly long, but rich in insight. eli had fun in the nursery, dressed in a stylish spring outfit from jeremy's mom & dad.


today we are rolling along with more house settling. this is a lengthy process i am finding, and patience is a requirement. this weekend i made a small creative contribution--some artwork for our bedroom.


our walls are mostly empty still, and i'm eager to fill them but trying to take it slow. jeremy has been installing trim around the doors, and doing a great job of it. i'm impressed by his craftsmanship, especially since this is all new to him.

i still need to compile a collection of before and after photos to show, but for now i'll just share a few details from around the house...
