Easter was sort of perfunctory around here, I'm sorry to say. We did color eggs, which I'm happy about. Karin had a 2-day soccer camp overnight yesterday and today, so the kids got their Easter baskets and lame-o egg hunt a day early. I put skumgodis in plastic eggs and Anders and I hid them around the living room, but we didn't try very hard. By early afternoon, all the candy was GONE. Piggy kids. Anders got a big egg full of chocolate and a bag of salt licorice candy. The Easter bunny passed me by this year, as always. Good thing, because I don't exactly need to be eating candy. Tomorrow is day 1 of the step competition. I managed to ...forget the step counter at work, so I will ride the elevator tomorrow morning to the 4th floor for the last time for a month.
On Saturday, it snowed. Like crazy. It even started sticking and everything was white for several hours. Thankfully it melted again, but it's been SO COLD. Windy, too, and today it rained all day. What a bummer for spring weather, when the buds are big and green and the daffodils are up. C'mon spring, get it together! In addition to having had today off work, we are all off on Friday, so I get another VERY short week and another LONG weekend. I am buzzing through books, as well, and it feels really good to both remember old favorites and toss others into the donation bag.
We dyed our eggs with the old school boiling water/vinegar/food coloring method that we used when I was a kid. I love how jewel-toned the colors are.
Artists hard at work
Someone always has to mix too many colors together and end up with a nearly black egg
Bright colors, bright smile
What's prettier than colored eggs? The splotchy paper towels they were drying on! WORKS OF ART, I tell you!
