How To Avoid Mess ~ Puerto Rican Pup ~ Palm Sunday

Good 29ยบ morning. Sunny yesterday but still cold. Well, more noticeable because of the cold I have!

Good advice:

I'm all for that! Feed me. Wait on me. Do the dishes!


Boy, this cold has made me cranky! Will be so glad when it's over. I was washing dishes and broke a glass .... down to the floor it went! Then I was filling the hummingbird feeders and dropped and broke one of those! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...... Fortunately I had an extra one so the hummers weren't being deprived! Brian told me to go break something else, since these things always happen in threes. HUH? Break something on purpose? Not. I'll take my chances. So far, so good....knock wood!

You have GOT to see this pup... soooooooooo funny and cute!!!

I soaked dried garbanzo beans yesterday so I could make some hummus today.

Also, I think I'll make some garbanzo bean soup. Sounds interesting. Not much else going on.

Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday is a Christian moveable feast that falls on the Sunday before Easter. The feast commemorates Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem, an event mentioned in all four canonical Gospels.
In many Christian churches, Palm Sunday is marked by the distribution of palm leaves (often tied into crosses) to the assembled worshippers. The difficulty of procuring palms for that day's ceremonies in unfavorable climates for palms led to the substitution of boughs of box, yew, willow, olive, or other native trees. The Sunday was often designated by the names of these trees, as Yew Sunday, or by the general term Branch Sunday.
According to the Gospels, Jesus rode a donkey into Jerusalem, and the celebrating people there lay down their cloaks in front of him, and also lay down small branches of trees. The people sang part of Psalm 118: 25–26... Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord. We bless you from the house of the Lord ....
The symbolism of the donkey may refer to the Eastern tradition that it is an animal of peace, versus the horse, which is the animal of war. A king came riding upon a horse when he was bent on war and rode upon a donkey when he wanted to point out he was coming in peace. Jesus' entry to Jerusalem would thus symbolize his entry as the Prince of Peace, not as a war-waging king.'s also
