Easter




Easter Sunday was a nice relaxed day spent mostly at home. There was too much chocolate, and a egg hunt in the afternoon. We did go out for waffles early in the day but then stayed home and watched movies, made dinner together, and I worked on some new paper piecing. I ordered some surprise balls for Easter baskets this year, but I can’t recommend them as they were a little lackluster. I think next time I will just make some myself because there is nothing quite as fun as unravelling all those layers of crepe.

Easter Eggs






Its that time of year for dyeing some eggs! Kurtis & his girlfriend Shari came for the weekend so we have been cramming in all sorts of things. We spent an evening at the local roller skating rink, had some ice cream sundaes at The Velvet, and they even got their Easter baskets a week early. We decided to dye eggs on Sunday, which made it feel a lot more like Easter to me. I don’t know if its the weather but it just didn’t really feel like Easter/Springtime to me yet. I do have some seeds we’ve started and thats helped too. Just looking forward to warmer Spring days with the windows open and lots of work in the yard.

Easter




Easter Sunday we had a great day at home. Tom had the day off of course. We slept in, then had brunch with liege waffles. Then we spent the afternoon outside cleaning up the yard and garden for planting. We also planted some new lilac bushes, it was perfect yard work weather. We tried to teach Sirius to play fetch with a frisbee. He didn’t care about the frisbee no matter how hard we tried, he just likes big sticks.
Of course there were also Easter baskets, too much candy, and some lazy movie watching on the couch in the evening. We didn’t make a big traditional Easter meal either, in fact we made a big cheesy pizza pie instead. It was perfect! I hope you had a wonderful Sunday too!
