Welcome Spring and Happy Easter!

Apparently in spite of the continued cold temperatures that we've been getting here in Connecticut, Spring really has sprung as evidenced by the crocuses that have popped up in my front yard. Yay! It looks like my daffodils and tulips are making a valiant effort also so hopefully before long I'll have a yard filled with some beautiful color. Come on, Spring!

Speaking of beautiful ...

Isn't that a lovely Easter basket filled with all sorts of Easter goodies? I think it is and it's mine! I can't even remember the last time I got an Easter basket, especially one that was done up in my favorite color purple, so I was really happy to get this one from my friend Amy last night. Woo-hoo! I got an Easter basket! A purple Easter basket!!

Amanda and I went over to Jason & Amy's house last night for a belated St. Patrick's Day dinner of some of the best corned beef I have ever had. Amy cooks it all day in a crockpot with Guinness and other seasonings and it's so tender that you can cut it with a fork. Yummy! I knew that she was planning on giving Amanda an Easter basket but I had no idea she was going to give one to me, too. What a lovely surprise and it's so pretty, I don't want to eat any of it! Amanda, of course, has already devoured most of hers but she'd best stay away from mine if she knows what's good for her! Of course, I'll probably have to lock it away before I go to work this afternoon ...

I hope everyone has a very Happy Easter and that Spring will be arriving on your doorstep soon!

    Gives one reason to hope for warmer days, doesn't it?

  7. How fun you got an Easter basket. I would love to have one too. Yes, spring has sprung here. We got up this morning and didn't have to turn the heater on to stay warm on the boat. Yay is right. Happy Spring and Easter too. :)

  8. I hope you and yours had a wonderful day.

  9. What fun to get an unexpected Easter basket. I haven't had one since I was a kid.

    I love it! Happy Easter, I'm so glad that you got one. :)

    Me...I had to sneak in my kiddos baskets. That darned bunny forgot about me, I think I should've gotten one b/c I've got a baby in my belly, right!?!?
