Odds and Ends


Laura D. I'm going to need some help learning how to cook the rice better and in spreading the rice on the kelp. It tasted good. Thank you.

What do you get when the Groucho glasses get torn apart by the two year old? Well, add an older brother, an infant sister, and a somewhat twisted father into the mix--this is what happens:

Cucumbers, peppers, garlic, dill, saltwater. Let sit on counter at room temp for 3 to 5 days. Eat or refrigerate. Keeps 6 months refrigerated.

For the pickled eggs, the after Easter sales provide a cheap source. Hard-boil the eggs, add some garlic, mustard seed, peppercorns, cover with white vinegar. Refrigerate, wait a week or better before eating. Keep 6 months in fridge.

A different kind of pickle:
Grandpa E. had eye surgery this week. He also has Atrial Fibrillation. Please keep him in your prayers. He needs to be still for 10 days while his eye heals. Not an easy thing for a man that has always been busy doing things.

The week before Holy Week: Sat 1 service, Sun 3 services; services, Bible Study, and Wed School from Tue, wed, thur, Funeral visitation prayer service on Friday; Sat regular worship, then funeral for Alverra O. (11 services 3 Bible Study, 1 WS) Holy Week I held 3 Palm Sunday services, 1 Wed. Service, 2 Holy Thursday services, 2 Good Friday Tenebrae services. 1 Holy Saturday service, 3 Easter Sunday services. (plus 12 Services, 1 WS) I also checked in on a few shut-ins during the week. It was pretty steady. I was getting a bit frazzled (28 regular/non shut-in preaching/teaching obligations in 15 days).

Mom and Dad came Friday in the afternoon, bringing Jeremy with. The little kids kept climbing all over their oldest brother. Monday morning, Mom, Dad, and Jeremy went back to Belview.

In the afternoon we left for the cabin. We stayed at the cabin until Wed. morning; and took a leisurely drive home through Park Rapids, Bemidji, Shevlin, Bagley, and Fosston. Louisa has some entries on it in her blog.

Thursday I took Matt to TRF so he could buy himself a bicycle. It had been stored in the basement of the Alamo.
Late Thurs eve and Friday, sermon work, lesson planning; writing; reading for work.

Happy Easter.
