Happy Easter! We were up pretty early thanks to Pixie playing outside the door. She kept banging on the door… grrrr… So, it was off to bagels!
And some coffee:
No grounds, either! Woo Hoo! We had a nice relaxing breakfast and then some grocery shopping. The guy bagging our groceries had a lot of comments on what we were buying. He saw my medjool dates and then was mumbling about all the great stuff we were buying like strawberries and brussel sprouts. I think his comment was “This is where it’s at!”. I wonder if he would have said anything if the cart was full of junk food….
I had to keep checking in with work today. Not much to do, but some. Since clinics are closed, it is only PICU work, since hospitals don’t close for any holiday. I had a quick protein shake, and then it was off to my sister’s house for Easter dinner!
We had a nice spread:
I made the fruit bowl pretty:
My favorite mints arrived via my Mom. We called these great grandma’s mints, because she always had them. I think the real name is french creams:
Plus seconds on broccoli and some fruit. After eating, we took the puppies out for a walk (okay, 1 puppy and 1 older dog)
Honey went into the water for a little fetch:
My BIL is the manager for the tree nursery and part of what the nursery does is to grow the flowers for the DEC owned state campgrounds. Here are some Norway spruce seedlings:
The greenhouses have seedlings!
Sigh…. I love flowers….
It was time for dessert when we got back! Lots to choose from:
Jelly bean cake, which actually had jelly beans baked in it, kind of weird.
My sister’s birthday choice. This was good!
And a selection of little pastries.
Plus another eclair piece. These were good.
After this – it was bonfire time:
Because there were some of these in the house:
Peep roasting time! Peep brulee anyone?
Past the point of no return here:
Now we all smell like campfire! I did not have any roasted peeps, although I kind of wanted one.
I need to keep checking in with work tonight for a while longer and eating a little ham snack for dinner.
I hope you all had a wonderful day!
