Maundy Thursday

We did a bit of celebrating Maundy Thursday last evening, beginning with some discussion about this icon, purchased in Italy on a trip Paul and I took there in 2005.  We have several icons in our house, but this one is my favorite with the bright, almost modernist, feel.  I also like that you can't tell which one is Judas, making me suspicious of them all.

We also had a simple meal of homemade bread and vegetable soup.  I imagine the Last Supper was pretty simple fare.

Also yesterday, I finished up the last piece I wanted to add to Finn's Easter basket.  He has been in love with Owl Babies for quite some time.  "Poor Bill..." Finn says when Bill starts yearning for his mommy.  I hope he'll give this Bill a little lovin'.


  1. That icon is really unique. I can see why you like it.
    The soup & bread look rather scrumptious too!

  2. I really like that icon as well. The owl baby is adorable. Finn is a lucky little boy. I still have some crafting to do for the Easter baskets before I'm done.

  3. I love it all, but esp. the owl.

    By the way-- were the boys at the Sci Center today with school? I saw a group from their school (same one as our friends' kids) and one looked suspiciously like yours-- Phillip, I think? Orange jacket, tye-dye shirt?

  4. Melissa, that's so funny that you recognized him from my blog. It was Paulie. He had a field trip there today. :)

  5. My daughter loved Owl Babies when she was about Finn's age. Such a sweet book-he'll love that owl you made for him!

  6. Aww...that owl couldn't BE any cuter. He's just adorable, and I bet Finn will love him. My own little Kayla loves owls. Truly, they are such fascinating birds!

    Your bread and soup looked delish, too.

  7. Your owl baby is lovely! Have a wonderful Easter Joy!

  8. Finn is going to love the owl. You really captured Bill.


I love to hear what you think!
