Well, I hope wherever you are, that the sun is out and you have all your Easter goodies, for dinner all bought and you are home from the busy stores, busy, planning your Easter menu!
Here, in Vancouver, it's a lovey day, the sun is shining, but not real hard, and it's a tad cool, but then again, Spring doesn't arrive until Thursday, and if it's not getting any warmer by then, we can all start complaining!!
Everyone today, get's their Easter eggs in baskets, but when we we're small, we used our hats!! We'd lay them all out on the sidboard, in the dining room and in the morning, we'd come running to see what the Easter Bunny had brought us!! Now we didn't get the usual kind of Easter Eggs. We had very, very special and different eggs then any of our friends had. Dad, knew someone, who made chocolates and he had given Dad some of his old Easter egg molds and a pile of chocolate and told him how to make Easter eggs. Well, our eggs were the most beautiful eggs, I've ever seen and I honestly remember how I didn't want to bite into any of them and spoil thier beauty. Dad, also had a talent for decorating. (Dad had many talents that I can remember when we were kids, that those stories will come out on Father's Day, when I write about him), but he knew how to make those beautiful roses made out of sugar icing, and how to decorate them with that hard icing all around the eggs and then lovely decorations of lily of the valley on some, some had bows wrapped around them, other's had little cats, with pussy willow's for their bodies. (hard to explain that one, but it worked). Then, for mom, he made a special egg, that was spectacular. It would be almost the size of a football and decorated so beautiful, it would take my breath away. Now they were Easter Eggs!
However you spend your Easter, I wish you a day filled with joy and love, I hope the sun is shining and you can get out and enjoy the day with family and if not, then with a big bowl of chocolate eggs and even get to eat off a solid chocolate bunny ear!! Yummmm.
