Since Zebadiah and Adriana finally met each other, they are almost inseparable. When you see one, the other is not far away.
They have taken many long walks, rubber wing in rubber wing. Waddling across the walkway, they stop to see the yellow wildflowers in the open lots behind the park. Adriana and Zeb are partial to the yellow flowers since many of their friends and relatives in the rubber duck heritage are yellow.
Adriana and Zeb are both glad they share many of the same interests like Family, Friends, Cycling, Antiquing, Traveling, and Food.
We never know what lies ahead in life. Live good, laugh, be kind, go to church, are all things that their mother’s used to say.
Zebadiah saw the pink duck during the Easter Egg hunt Sunday afternoon. Today saw her again and wants to talk to her if he can muster up the nerve. Zeb knows there are more ducks around, but she caught his eye earlier in his life and has been trying to find her ever since.
Her name is Adriana. Zeb finally got up his nerve to talk to her and they hit it off. She was elated as well, because she likes him too! Today they walked around the park behind the house. Zebadiah wanted to show her the wildflowers, clover and the creek. They were not ready to take a dip in the cool water yet, but maybe next time.
Zeb feels like it was meant to be. Adriana is happy she found Zeb too! Everyone has a soulmate. Sometimes they are hard to find.
It’s not often you see a rubber duck in a Mexican food restaurant. Zebadiah had to see what this was all about. He has heard about eating too many chips and salsa as most of us do, but never experienced it. We chose to eat on the patio as it was a beautiful spring day in Texas. It’s too nice outside to eat indoors. Besides it won’t be long before the Texas heat is on us.
Typical for a rubber duck, he didn’t get to enjoy the salsa or chips, but he enjoyed the atmosphere and spending time with family.
On the road trip to Canyon Lake over the weekend, Zebadiah saw many pretty wildflowers along the road. Once we got to Canyon Lake he had to venture out to see them.
The Bluebonnets were already turning to seed and the mowers had cut some of them down, but the yellow wildflowers were everywhere making a very pretty drive. Wild Verbena was growing adding some purple hues along the way.
Zeb is partial to the yellow flowers because most of his relatives are yellow.
Two for one today since we didn’t have internet access this weekend.
Easter Sunday – The egg is an ancient symbol of new life and rebirth. In Christianity it became associated with Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection. Easter eggs, also called Paschal eggs, are eggs that are sometimes decorated.
At this time of year, some farm stores sell little chicks and baby ducks. Years ago my parents purchased a few chicks but never a duck. They would raise the chickens and eat or give the eggs away to our neighbors.
Zebadiah did not come from a farm store but the local Wild-Mart had plenty rubber ducks.
While at our Easter Egg hunt, Zeb sees the colorful eggs and remembers the little pink duck. He thinks of her often. Sometimes he thinks he sees her in the distance. But wait, is that…?
Holy Saturday – Lent is over for 2019. Not much happens on Holy Saturday. Those that gave up something for lent can have it again, but I am not so sure that is the meaning of the sacrifice. This year we gave up red meat. I sure would like a hamburger!
Zebadiah didn’t really give up anything, since after all he is a rubber duck, but nonetheless he gets to help with my sacrifice.
Zeb finally gets to take a road trip to Canyon Lake, Texas over the Easter weekend. He would sure like to get in that pretty water!
Good Friday is a Christian holiday commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus and his death at Calvary. It is observed during Holy Week as part of the Paschal Triduum on the Friday preceding Easter Sunday, and may coincide with the Jewish observance of Passover. It is also known as Holy Friday, Great Friday, and Black Friday.
For Christians, Good Friday is a crucial day of the year because it celebrates what we believe to be the most momentous weekend in the history of the world. Ever since Jesus died and was raised, Christians have proclaimed the cross and resurrection of Jesus to be the decisive turning point for all creation.
