This has been a very relaxing weekend for us. Susan and I both happened to be off work on Friday -- Susan because school was cancelled for Good Friday (although they call it "Vernal Holiday" lol), and me because the cleaning schedule at the Temple has been different during the past 2 weeks because of … Continue reading Easter weekend and our getaway to Tijeras
