Easter's on its way! This is my favorite holiday of all. Easter crafts have been coming home from school and Mini Eggs have been eaten with gusto.
We'll buy our ham tomorrow morning. I have a tasty holiday dinner planned, along with a simple brunch. We'll have a quiet holiday at home, just the four of us. On Saturday night, we'll make the small Bears' Easter baskets and hide jellybean-filled eggs for them in the backyard.
I bought their Easter goodies a few days ago. We keep it pretty simple but I think they'll like them. The GB is getting a new box of sidewalk chalk and a Hello Kitty wristwatch; she really wants a watch of her own, just like Brother. He's getting some new tennis balls and a bag of "punch balloons." The candy is to be divided between them.
I'm almost done with the top of my Scrappy Trip-Along project! I had plenty of time to work on it this week with the traditional granny afghan finished. I've never been one to have more than a couple of WIP's at a time; I find it stressful. I like being back down to just one.
Good things this week:
~ I survived my annual (lady-related) exam. I rewarded myself with a vanilla milkshake and a pretty skein of yarn.
~ It has been warm all week, dare I say it's even been kind of hot in the afternoons. More sun than clouds, but not the most brilliantly sunny week overall. I'll take the warmth, though.
~ There is no school today and we're ahead in our homeschool work. We have the GB's pre-ballet class this morning. This afternoon, a good friend who makes me laugh a lot is coming over with her two little boys. We'll play in the backyard and have a good time.
~ I'm eating strawberries every day lately. This is the way life should be.
Thank you so much for the compliments on my granny afghan. I really appreciate your kind words.
