I googled "Why Good Friday is called Good Friday". The explanation I liked the best was the description , in song, from the "Just Kids Magazine" website:
I loved it ! Hopefully most of us still celebrate Easter for it's true meaning, and not just for that "extra" day off work.
My whole Easter Dinner Menu was changed in an instance by a man (not to mention any names, ROB) preferring to have Turkey with all the trimmings, rather then my choice of Ham & Scalloped potatoes. Let me tell you it is just easier some days to go with the "flow" instead of "treading upstream". Turkey it will be !!! However, make it known, since I am making it, I am deciding on the "dessert"!!!!!! LOL
For supper last night I made Hamburger Stew over potatoes, one of the staples from my childhood. I happened to have leftover gravy from a Roast Beef dinner, so I just fried up hamburger along with chopped onion, drained it well and added the gravy. Should I not have leftover gravy, after draining the hamburger well, I would add some boiled water and thicken it with cornstarch & water to make the gravy. Sometimes I will throw in some frozen peas for a varition. Mom and Rob really enjoy this meal, and I enjoyed leftover chicken.
Wit & Wisdom: I freeze any unused roast beef gravy to be used later in a Shepherd's Pie.
I made a few people smile yesterday, as I had took along to my appointment a Strawberry muffin for each of the three girls, as well as Dr. Loney. Since my appointment is first thing in the morning, they were very appreciative having a muffin to go along with their morning coffee.
I love making people "smile", it make my tummy tingle.
I was smiling myself yesterday, since I took money I had received for my Birthday to purchase a new "digital camera" to replace the one I had dropped into the dog's water dish. I purchased a Fuji 12 megapixel, 10 x zoom camera that also records videos for a clearance price of $118.00, and a further, rather large, discount, since it was the last one & the display model, for a grand total, tax included, of $94.00 !!!! Now let me tell you that made me "smile", and I still have $6.00 left to purchase a lottery ticket.......I couldn't have been more happier, since as much as I appreciated that I still had my really really old camera to use, I really wanted a much newer one.
Watch out now there will be lots of future pictures being posted, and maybe a few videos?
In all my years of being, I don't remember too many Good Fridays being sunny, as they have usually been on the most part overcast or rainy for some unknown reason to me. Let's see what the Wiarton Airport has to say about this "Good Friday":
Cloudy. Clearing near noon. Wind becoming southeast 20 km/h late this morning. High 11. UV index 5 or moderate.
Increasing cloudiness. Rain beginning this evening. Wind southeast 30 km/h. Low plus 5
