easter day

Unwinding with a plate of rosemary bread and butter, looking out at the twilight across the snow;  I hope your Easter Day was a delight!   We had ham and whipped potatoes, bok choy salad, above mentioned rosemary bread, far too many sweets ( chocolates, jelly beans and that wicked carrot cake with cream cheese frosting and marzipan carrots, which may or may not have contributed to the gently manic energy level of the grands, but then again, they are little, and prone to sudden bursts of looney hilarity).    A quick departure, as my daughter-in-law started having contractions, which we hope was simply too much good food and much laughter.

You had fun:-) what a cute shot:-)
Must admit I am already in bed:-)
Happy tired.
Your eggs are so pretty:-)
I colored 3 for the challah..and I must admit mine were not nearly as pretty:-)
How did you cold them Katrina:-)

Ah, yes, it was fun, Nana - but I am also in bed:) The eggs were colored with 2/3rd cup boiling water, 2 teaspoons white vinegar, and as many drops of food coloring as you like. Worked very quickly, too - faster than those fizz tablets you can get.

Sweet dreams, and cross fingers the snow will continue to melt!

What lovely photos of your holiday! Pretty eggs, smiling faces...nice. We woke up to damp pavement from unexpected showers last night, so April is already confusing!

Thanks, Miz Kelly! We had rain last night! The streams are gushing, and the snow is melting, hooray, hooray! Oops - it is raining again, fiercely and suddenly, so you are right, April is confusing already!
