Robin and Easter Dinner Report


This morning, early, there were finally Robins in the yard..I took this photo through the window!  It is official Spring is here..the Robins declare it so.  I lost by only a couple of days this year.  "She who see Robins first" ..my sister in law with the Eagle Eye saw hers on April 02, 2010.   The next big happening in our yard will be the arrival of the Bluebirds..maybe this week! 

Easter dinner went off without a hitch.  It was served at precisely 12:59..just one minute before the time I said it would be ready.  If nothing else..I am punctual.   Daughter Jen forgot her Spatzle maker..so we were without the German noodles..but her homemade potato rolls made up for it.  It was a beautiful day, it was about 60 degrees and the sun was shining so we brought some of the lawn furniture out from its winter hiding spot.  It rained a bit in the early morning..and it rained again last night.

It has been a long time since we had a little girl twirling in our kitchen on Easter afternoon..my brothers granddaughter, Olivia, indulged us..she is an excellent twirler.  She informed us that she might fall down if she twirled too hard, and then she would have to go to the Doctor.

Chance had a blast. He had lots of ball throwers..at one point niece Meg said "Look at that dog,  his whole body is quivering."    He was exhausted.. plopped in the center of the floor..drooling..and quivering in his exhaustion.  After everyone left and the kitchen was restored to normal we all had a nap:)

  7. So that's where the predicted rain went -- your house. We sure could use it in our area but barely got anything. I was looking at the eggs in your header thinking, so that's what you can do with the magic pen... My eggs did not turn out as good looking as your. Sounds like a wonderful Easter!
