The Weekend Wrap ~ April 19th

The weekend wrap 2The weekend was fairly quiet for me. I’d planned this because on Saturday I got my second Moderna Covid Vaccine. The last time I got it, I actually felt like I had the flu and ended up in bed.

I am pleased to say, aside from a headache, a few muscle aches, and a sore arm, I am just fine! No fever, no congestion, and I actually have an appetite.

Saturday was also the funeral for Prince Philip. I’d wanted to see this as it happened, but my appointment for the shot would not have gotten me home in time.

Because I will not be thwarted, from getting my vaccine and seeing the funeral, I set my alarm, got up early, and drove to get my shot one and a half hours early! Best of all, when I arrived at the facility to get my shot, no one said a word and everyone was very nice.

After my watched time ended, I hopped in my car and headed home. My girlfriend in Delaware talked me through the first part, as the troops lined up and the casket was moved onto the somewhat unusual hearse.


When I got home, I raced up the stairs in time to watch the funeral procession to the church. Jack had it on the TV, live via BBC News, and I sat down and watched and listened to the beautiful music.

The readings were some I have done in the past and the songs were so familiar, I felt I was back at my mother’s funeral, and the tears fell.

After the service, which ended with the Bagpipes being played, I watched the Royal Family walking up the hill to Windsor Castle. And I think I smiled just a little when I saw Prince William and Prince Harry speaking to each other. No matter how different they may see the world, I hope they can at least keep in touch with each other.

Princess Diana sacrificed a lot for her two sons. It would not please her to see, all that she had sacrificed for torn asunder by opportunists.

On Sunday I was just feeling tired, so I just went about making our meals (read: very easy eats!) and watching a few of my favorite shows on Discovery+.

I love the New Hampshire editions of “Northwoods Law“. The Fish & Game Wardens all work in parts of New Hampshire that I know and love. I must say, I live in one of the most beautiful states in America.

I also love “No Reservations” and “What Not To Wear“. I also watch “The Great British Baking Show” on PBS.

Now as my Sunday is winding down, I’m thinking a nap may be in order. I hope all of you had a great weekend!
