* IT'S EASTER IN APRIL *

Easter always arrives on a day in March or April. Personally, I prefer April, just because chances are better that the weather might cooperate and there will be such outdoor beauty to behold.

 

I couldn't find a picture of any of the traditional Easter cakes I made just about every year when my boys were growing up, but I found this online. It is similar...somewhat!

Mine would have white frosting, tinted green coconut just on the top, a few jelly beans, just on the top, and a few yellow chicken peeps (the original!) on the top! I know I have printed photos somewhere...but that's a whole other project...to find them.

I'm feeling a bit melancholy today....and I've been like this for a while now. I'm pretty sure I know what is causing it and I just need to work my way through it, as I've always done when things have gotten me down. (It has nothing to do with any health issues of mine or my family, so no worries.)


Last night I was jumping around my blog and others', and read a few really old blog posts...tablescapes, thrift store finds, photos of this 'n that, especially humorous ones...and I loved sensing the joy I felt when I wrote them, and I want that back. It's not that I don't have any joy at all right now, but anyone who has read my blog with any regularity knows that I haven't blogged much worthwhile in a LONG time.


I certainly didn't intend on this becoming a "downer," so I'll leave with some cute and/or funny things.







                            Happy Easter Everyone!
