We've had such a nice Saturday otherwise. It's beautiful outside, almost like early summer. The wisteria is still blooming and now the Spanish broom is just starting to blossom. It smells so good outside! I went to the grocery store this morning for my regular shopping as well as things I still needed for Easter. I'm making a spiral-sliced ham, scalloped potatoes, roasted Brussels sprouts and dinner rolls. Dessert is carrot cake, which I baked today. I'll make the cream-cheese frosting tomorrow. So excited for carrot cake!
We had company this morning; our next-door neighbors' grandchildren (eight-year-old boy-girl twins) are visiting from Phoenix for Easter and they came over to play. It was nice to have a houseful of kids. After they left, I went out again, this time to pick up some sandwiches from Jimmy Johns for lunch. This afternoon, we enjoyed our annual tradition of dyeing Easter eggs together. The Bear left the couch for just a few minutes, long enough to dye one of his trademark multicolored eggs. It's the stripey egg in the photo above; he calls it Tequila Sunrise. I think he needs a drink. Ha...maybe in a week or two. I did my eggs the way I like them, very brilliant solid colors achieved by leaving the eggs in the dye cups 4-ever. The small Bears, well, they did a lot of different things. I love the way our eggs look in the carton together, so bright and cheerful. Easter is just my favorite.
I hope you have a wonderful holiday with your family. Love and chocolate to you and yours!
