I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Ours was very relaxing - which means that very little was accomplished. That's fine.
Sometimes I need a few days of downtime.
I've been reading Ada, Or Ardor by Vladimir Nabokov for a couple of weeks now. It's nearly 600 pages, if I don't add in the "Notes to Ada" section, which I fully intend to read and that comes to 606 pages.
Anyone who has read Nabokov knows that his novels are not the "summer beach reads" and with the kids and my crazy schedule here lately, it's taken me more time than normal to get through this book - although I have really enjoyed it so far. I'm almost at the end! If I didn't have a three year old, I could have finished it in a weekend, but oh well.... :-)
My little playgroup Easter Egg hunt went well on Friday. We did have some early rain showers, so we had to have the hunt indoors. It was still fun.
I was able to get all my chores finished and still throw together a veggie tray:
We had a really nice turnout with lots and lots of food!
And, speaking of food, you all know I gave up bread for Lent (that would be bread and all baked goods), so for Easter, I had half of an Easter bagel, with cream cheese! For lunch, it was Easter pizza and finally, for dinner, the piece de resistance, a Baconator from Wendy's.LOL! I haven't had a hamburger since Ash Wednesday! I needed that. AND, it didn't make me "sick" either, like it has sometimes in the past.
When my parents were both alive, my mom always did the traditional Easter meal, but since they're gone, we just kind of wing it here. The kids get lots of candy in their Easter baskets, so.... it's just kind of a "meh" kind of day.
It's been a "meh" kind of few weeks around here and I've got a lot on my mind. Some pressing family matters (no, we're not sick or anything and the Evil Twin and I are NOT on the outs, but just life in general stuff), so I've been preoccupied.
I do hope you all had a wonderful Easter!
