Easter Round-up. Rested and Recharged!
Easter weekend is over, but what a great recharge it was! How about you? Did you have a good break?
Here’s a little recap of our last four days…
Friday was my hot cross bun baking day…
Whew. They turned out better than last year’s!
I gave my Dad a pan, too!
And we painted a dozen eggs since none of us would be home on Saturday to do it.
Focused and hard at work!
But I was able to get a quick smile from all three 🙂
Kaleigh, Robbie (K’s boyfriend) and Clemens (aka hubby) 😉
Here’s a look at the good old fashioned masterpieces…
I even had a few eggs in there, too.
On Saturday hubby and I popped down to Sooke to visit our good friends, Steph, Mark and their boys.
Loved this walk along the beach. It was breezy and a little cool, but just so awesome to be out in the sunshine with friends!
On Sunday I got to be the Easter Bunny and hide the eggs. Remember, I wondered about bribing the teens with chocolate to hunt for the eggs?
Well, these got hidden beside each egg.
The bribe worked! The teens indulged me, and went searching for the hidden treasure 🙂 🙂 🙂
Then I set to work on the dinner prep.
Twice baked potatoes…
Honey & mustard glazed ham…
And hubby was on chocolate mousse for dessert!
I had fun setting the table and
playing with my camera taking photographs of it…
I made sure everyone got a chocolate bunny, too!
Along with their Easter cards!
This got a smile from Dad!
I hope you had a great Easter weekend.
Now that it’s over, are you recharged and embracing this week, too?
We really enjoyed our weekend. It was a lot about slowing down and just taking this time. We stayed away from our computers, and opened our books instead. And it felt seriously amazing. My only set-back was a nasty burn when I was making the glaze for the ham. I splashed scalding hot honey all over my thumb… and yup, it’s blistered from knuckle to cuticle, no joke. Fun, right? Now it’s all bandaged up and latex gloves are my new best friend. Can I just say being all thumbs has taken on a whole new meaning! 😉
THANKS FOR STOPPING BY AND READING!
It’s about coming home… and home is a remarkable space that tells your story!
