Around here . . . it was an early morning with the family celebrating Easter at the sunrise service. The Easter garden was beautful! Seeing the colorful flowers got me excited for planting season, which should be right around the corner.
Around here . . . my daughter and her boyfriend came for the day. I made them each an Easter basket starting with a "useful" item as the basket. For my daughter I bought some divided lunch containers that she can use to bring lunch to work and then filled them with candy.
Around here . . . my daughter's boyfriend's "basket" was a large measuring cup which I thought was fitting since he is a chef. I made sure that I split the candy evenly between the baskets, which means that if I wanted to sample one of the candies I had to eat two!
Around here . . . the local lakes are opening after months of being frozen solid. At a lake near my house we spotted a loon swimming in the calm waters. Over the course of the next month we should start to see leaves on the trees, which will provide some green to the currently brown landscape.
I hope your weekend was as enjoyable as mine, and that your week is off to a great start.
