Easter Weekend

Saturday was an absolutely beautiful day here. It was sunny and 70 degrees. I was able to get outside in the afternoon to work on clearing off flowerbeds. I have a long way to go, but got a good start. We met two couples for dinner at the club Saturday night and had a great time socializing. I had soft shell crabs that were to die for good.

We went to my mom’s house for Easter dinner. As usual, Mama had a wonderful meal. We had chicken, chicken livers, stewed tomatoes, twice baked potatoes, spinach salad, rolls, chocolate pie, and apple crisp. Mama made the chicken livers especially for hubby, but she likes them a lot, too. In fact, hubby and I know every little store around here who makes them. After dinner, hubby and his dad played around with a boomerang that they’ve had since 1965. I didn’t realize that those things can be dangerous. It was fun to watch how high it would go and how much spin it could get.

Now for some pictures!

Mama is pretty crafty and made some rag covered eggs. She dyed the cloth in coffee, soaked it in glue, and then wrapped it around regular old plastic eggs. They looked great in her antique bread bowl.

Here are a few of Mama’s antique eggs:

Here’s a hint of spring. See how the maples are blooming?

  5. You just got a great compliment… “Mama, go back to the top so I can see EVERY picture.” He liked your chocolate bunny the best, but wasn’t too pleased that it’s not real. 😉 And we’re both quite impressed with your amaryllis.
