Easter Octave

This entire week is Easter and the season will last 50 days until Pentecost (again borrowed from our Jewish ancestors). I'm loving the warm weather, azaleas in bloom, birds and squirrels singing with me: Exultate justi in Domino 

I did Storytime at B&N on Easter Vigil and although I only had two children show up, it was still fun to read with them and visit with the parents later. And then I signed stock so if you're local and want signed copy, head on over to Mt. Pleasant B&N. 

And I love seeing my friends' books in the wild. Here's Jody Jensen Shaffer's new book: A Chip Off the Old Block, a story about a pebble and his various adventures. Rocks lead such interesting lives! The illustrations by Daniel Miyares are gorgeous! Jody was kind enough to send me some postcards (she knows I'm old fashioned and mail hand-written notes) so a few of you will receive them.
After all the busyness of Triduum, it was wonderful to hear the quiet and beautiful, low Latin Mass Sunday evening. Afterwards, a picnic on the beach. You just can't beat this life. Wishing you all a very happy and blessed Eastertide.
