We're in full Easter Week, still reeling from the fire of Notre Dame and looking desperately for signs of spring.
I'm not sure why I decorated my house for Easter -- I've hardly been there since the middle of March. Here's look at one of the kitchen shelves.
I've been down at Rick's most of the time, though finally home and sleeping in my own bed, which is a great relief. Then back at 8:30 the next day. These tulips have already bit the dust.
But I confess I love walking in the door and seeing the Greeting Angel...
...and some of the bunnies that are around the house.
My little felted farmyard is looking pretty cute, too!
Thanks to Claudia at Mockingbird Hill Cottage I became acquainted with the work of Crystal and Ben at Vintage by Crystal. I bought my first piece, which is theoretically an ornament but will be sitting out all year long. I love it!
And on one of my jaunts home to check the mail I found this slipped inside my door with no note! (I did find the generous person who shared it with me and what a treat!) Adding to the Royal Commemorative collection!
We got a bit of snow the other day.
More was predicted but it seems to have turned to rain which is fine by me! It was pretty but I am SO DONE with snow!
And I enjoyed a fun dinner with former colleagues. Almost all of us used to work at the station years ago when it was still located in old military quonset huts on campus and all moved on when we moved into the current station in 1981. We meet for early dinner at a restaurant where a lot of old people meet because the food is predictable and very good. But I wonder -- do they think we are the old people too?
There has been a little bit of painting going on.
Must be my Red period!
Rick is adjusting to his leg-up schedule, though pretty frustrated that he can't just be continually on the go like usual. But we're counting down another week till he can get off "leg-up" duty. He (we) had an extra dose of very good medicine this past weekend.
Yup, the Baby Grandlittles! And boy, are they active!
I leave you with some mini-daffs, doing their best to brighten up my yard!
And now -- gotta go!
Till next time!
