As for our observance of Holy Week, we will be reading Bible scriptures of Christ last days, His Atonement and Resurrection. We will be watching...Franco Zeffirelli's "Jesus of Nazareth", which contains, in my humble opinion, the absolute best characterization of Christ that I have seen anywhere (hm.m.m, am I sure this is a humble opinion?). In addition, we will be discussing Gratitude during Family Night, tonight. There is so much for which to be grateful, but especially as we contemplate the sacrifice of our Savior.

Have a splendid Monday and I hope to see you back here tomorrow!

It was good to see you post again. Wasn't conference so uplifting and wonderful? I did not want it to end.
We also like to watch Franco Zeffirelli's "Jesus of Nazareth."

I am so sorry about your kidney infection. It seems to be chronic with you. Have you ever had surgery on your kidneys? So glad you are doing better.
I still have the crazy cough at times and we are suppose to attend a dinner at the temple Wednesday with our stake. It is our conference on Sunday and we both have stake callings. I don't think I can go through. Although I am not contagious, I am afraid of making others feel uncomfortable.
The doctor is changing my Hgh BP meds and so now I am swelling with edema and coughing. LOL. He is trying to figure it out:)
I did hear there is a 100 day cough going around and if that is it mine should be gone soon:-)!

Good night dear friend to the south....I am visiting dad this past weekend so the dry dusty/snowy/dirty prairies have stung my eyes equal with the tears of rememberances with dad. I am longing to return home to find 'my place'again....with my family yet it is hard to part. I am glad for the solid strength and sureness of my 'online friends' Your menu planing brings some constancy back into my little whirlwind trip...looking forward to chatting soon.

Mmm how do you make this easy chicken??
This is my first year teaching formal grade school. I teach in a very tiny private school on 6 grassy acres. My class has three 2nd graders, one 1st grader, and one kindergartner. :)

Oops! That last comment(James) was me! I forgot to sign out of my husband's account.

As for the ballet, I only wish I was a dancer! I use the New York City Ballet Workout video. I like the pretty classical music and graceful movement. And it flattens my stomach fast!
