It’s end of day and I am just steeping a cup of chamomile tea. Would you like to join me? It’s hard to imagine that Easter has nearly passed, particularly since the ground here is still covered in a blanket of white. It has been snowing on and off over the past few days. This morning the roads were icy and treacherous in places. Today, it was less like Easter and more like Christmas with a long weekend, shovelling, church services, family gatherings, roast turkey, wrapped gifts and chocolate. Lots of chocolate. Our family and neighbours were even exchanging tongue-in-cheek greetings of “Merry Christmas!” It was as if time had stood still and we hadn’t moved past the 25th of December! Sigh.
My hubby and I were grateful to be able to enjoy a delicious dinner with my sister, niece and her beautiful family. We had lots of laughs. My niece Janell’s children are Lily, age 2, and Victoria, age 9. They are always entertaining and just a barrel of fun. They LOVED their Easter cookies! Lily’s first word when she spied them was, “WOW!” And, she ran to give me a big hug! I hope you celebrated and enjoyed your time with loved ones as well.
I am enjoying an Easter vignette in a teeny corner of my kitchen tonight while sipping a cuppa. My husband has gone to bed. I decided to stay up for awhile to wind down after the day’s festivities and savour the quietness of the house. Our cat, Monza, is nearby cozily curled up in his basket and snoozing away. I think I can hear him snoring! The cat. Not hubby.
I just want to tell you how touched I am by all the lovely comments you left on my last post, Easter Blessings! I am so glad you enjoyed it. I was really quite surprised by the number of visits it received! And, thank you for coming to see me tonight, too! Sweet dreams of Easter…
