It's been a jammed packed couple of weeks.  This coming week I need to tell you everything that I've been up to. 
The early arrival of spring has been a welcome change.  I don't think I've ever noticed a more beautiful one.  The hues are dreamy.  
I hope you have a colorful weekend.
I'm glad to be back and I missed you!

Happy Easter

We woke up early this morning and headed out to 8:30 mass.  The weather was a glorious 70 degrees and sunny!
I prepared Easter lunch.  This year it was only the four of us here for Easter but having my daughter home from school was a treat in itself.
Below are a few pics of what we had on our Easter table.

Everything was set on this lovely tablecloth given to me by my mom many years ago.  Mr. and Mrs. Barcley lived next door to us when I was growing up.  They were originally from Scotland and they went back to visit family and friends in Scotland frequently. They would bring back gifts for us.  This tablecloth was one of them.  Another thing they brought back for us were giant fat pepperment sticks. 

On our table we had a few chicks that were checking things out.

A pretty fragrant lilly and

dishes that used to be my grandma's.

My other grandma used to color her Easter eggs by boiling them with onion skins so I did the same this year.

We served a lot of bread along with the

traditional butter lamb.

Plenty of ham and for dessert


I hope your Easter was happy in so many ways.
Have a blessed Easter!
