Happy Easter!! This morning was church morning. I was up at 0415 and in my Dress Blue uniform by 0430. R was up also and she and I played Easter Bunny and got all 24 eggs hidden before heading to post. We had to be at Reservoir Hill by 0530 – Brass Quintet played at the Sunrise Service. The sunrise was BEAUTIFUL! I took a picture after the service was over (see below). Then it was back home to change out of uniform and into spring-y church clothes. Robert woke up just before I left and I reminded him that he wasn’t to look for anything until Mommy got home and Daddy was awake. I was at church by 0830 for choir warm-ups, and after we went through our pieces, I went through my trombone solo with F before the service. I played "Easter Medley" (arranged by me) for the prelude. The service was really nice and the church was packed. After the service, I went home and Robert was able to look a little bit. He found his Easter basket in the dryer and a few of his eggs before we headed back to the church. I played the prelude again and everyone really enjoyed it. This was the first time I’ve played trombone at this church. The service was really nice again, but I was really sneezing and miserable by the end. Between the Easter lilies and the lady next to me in the choir wearing perfume. . . . Once we got home, I took a couple of Benydryl and Robert found all the rest of his eggs. I had to give him a few hints, but he’s getting lots better at knowing how/where to look.
We had decided to go eat about 1400. About 1330, my Benydryl kicked in hard and I slept on the couch for about 20 minutes. I felt a little better after that short nap. We headed out and picked up K on our way to Golden Corral for our Easter dinner. We all ate our fill and had a great time. Then we brought her home and I was fighting the Benydryl sleepies again so I went and laid down for about an hour. Then I got my stitching out and made my weekly phone call home to Mom & Dad. Rick is home and I got to talk to him, too. That’s always nice. Robert talked for a little bit as well. Robert had a bowl of cereal for dinner as he was hungry. And I stitched more.
Off to bed now as my second dose of Benydryl is starting to kick in.
Today’s high: 75
