Happy Easter

Today was Easter. Molly and I went to church and Sunday School. Megan came for lunch and since Al is in Alaska there were just three of us. We had ham and all of Molly’s favorites. One of my Easter favorites is pickeled eggs. After lunch today the girls turned a movie on and I watched with them and we all fell asleep….even the dogs. I guess that doesn’t say much for the movie we watched. So anyhow, we had a relaxing day!

The Easter bunny brought me a basket when she hopped home from school. This morning the Easter bunny had a basket for Molly. Tomorrow we are shopping since I suggested to Al that since he will be missing Easter and our anniversary he might want to just send cash! So we will spend the day playing!

Yesterday was a beautiful day and I had a dentist appointment so instead of playing in the gardens I did some shopping after my appointment. One of the things I bought was a beautiful hyacinth. I love the fragrance of hyacinths. It reminds me of Easter since those are the Easter flowers I grew up with…and of course Easter reminds me of chocolate and that is a good thing too.

My plant is sitting on the table next to my chair and the fragrance fills the room. I love the promise of spring as everything becomes new again.

So for this week my favorite flower is a hyacinth. I am looking forward to going to church on Easter because the church will smell like hyacinths, tulips and lilies.

Here is a photo of my hyacinth. I will plant it outside after it dies and next year it will be part of the garden.
