2018 Clearing My Life: Easter Weekend

    I had a great time at the Meet the Artists! event at A New Chapter Bookstore and Café yesterday.  Music by Chloe-Beth, coffee and tea from the bookstore and even cookies!  From 4-6 the public shuffled in and out and were entertained by the music of Chloe-Beth (much of it original).  Families came and brought the kids.  The relaxed atmosphere brought music and literature together in a cozy environment.  Friends bought books and drank coffee and tea and enjoyed the early spring afternoon.  

    Enid has a lot to do for a small town and plenty to get involved in; some for pleasure others for need.  The Garfield County Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children (CASA) hold an event each year on the Courthouse square.  The wooden children in the picture represent the 246 cases of abused or neglected children in Garfield County reported to authorities each year.  Many are never reported. The numbers incline or decline depending up on the year, but Enid is not a metropolitan city and Garfield County is not an especially large county.  I think that number is much too high, but CASA is working hard to reduce it.  My husband and I adopt one of these wooden children each year and dress it, take it to the Courthouse lawn with all the others and hope that the money collected will be enough to help with this worthwhile project.  

It’s Easter Sunday and many of my readers are home with family and friends celebrating this holy day.  I met a friend in the grocery store yesterday as I prepared for our small feast for two.  Her family combines Easter with a family reunion each year and the dinner will be for over 200 in a hall that is rented.  No one has a house big enough for that.  But whether your celebration is for 2 or 200, I hope you have a great Easter.

Happy Easter everyone.  What are you doing on this holiday?

  1. Sounds like fun :)) Quiet Easter here with my husband and I at home today. Last night we sat in our respective chairs and read aloud to one another from the book, Round the Bend, by Nevil Shute, that we have been enjoying. I think you will enjoy my talented harp-playing daughter :)) Happy Easter, Happy Spring! Dawn
