Happy Easter!


It is pouring rain and the forecast is for more of the same for the next four days. But hey, I am not complaining! Relatives in Wisconsin talk of 14 inches of new snow in Milwaukee. Now that is NOT Easter weather. I can understand totally why my youngest sister and her family are headed to Galveston, Texas for spring break. And my lucky daughter is on the Ultimate Frisbee circuit for her spring break. She is in Statesboro, GA right now. We talked yesterday and she gloated, "It was so warm today we had to find shade to get out of the sun. I even got a little sun burned." We do have rain today but spring is all around with many trees and flowers just pushing out the blooms right and left. Garden sales are right around the corner; yippee! Yesterday was lovely and our freshly mowed and edged lawn looks lush in the rain. So Happy Easter everyone! I'm off to put last minute touches on dinner preparation: honey baked ham, roasted asparagus with herbs du Provance, spinach with bacon and grapefruit salad, cheesy potato casserole with Ranch dressing, shortbread and sorbet for dessert. But now it is time for a mimosa and a hard boiled egg.

Happy Easter.

Even if it does look a lot like Christmas here :)

Well we're the opposite of you. We didn't get any snow today that I noticed but it's still on the ground and it's cold out. I'd love to be transported to someplace warm for a short while - at least until it truly gets around to being spring like here.

Lovely daffodils.

Thanks Tricia! Rain sure beats snow; I'll take a garden shovel over a snow shovel any day.

Hope your Easter was lovely.

After 8 Easters in the Wisconsin/Northern Illinois area, I've come to think of them as always white, like Christmas.

Oh~your Easter Dinner sounds scrumptious! Yummy! We have had quite a bit of rain these last two weeks-but I'm not complaining, after our drought last year!
