I don't decorate much for Easter now that I don't have little ones at home, but I still
enjoy putting Easter touches in my kitchen. I put some of my favorite bunnies and
vintage egg cups in the china cabinet...
and placed some more bunny items on a shelf next to the china cabinet.
The egg cup on this shelf is a new one from World Market. The other bunnies
and even the miniature teapot were all thrifted in past years.
I keep my kitchen table very simple on an everyday basis due to curious kitties.
If I so much as put a tablecloth on the table or any elaborate place settings,
they must check it out and jump up on the table. So, I won't make a really pretty
tablescape until the last minute on Easter Sunday.
Easter dinner will be small and cozy ~ me, Brian and Tim ~ and my mom and cousin.
I'm picking up a nitrate-free ham at Trader Joes this week and I'll also make
marinated asparagus and a fruit salad. My mom is making hot cross buns and
potato salad, and my cousin is bringing glazed carrots and an apple pie. I'm also going
to make a pitcher of strawberry-peach sangria.
In other news, I started physical therapy again today for my shoulder. The MRI
last week showed I have a partial tear in my rotator cuff. I'm perfecting the art
of one-armed yoga and at least I can still exercise by walking and biking. I got a
"new" bike last night from a private seller in my town. It's a Schwinn Traverse and
was hardly used. All it needs is new inner tubes in the tires. Little bits of work continue
in the yard as weather permits (we had some warm weather, but then rain moved in
and umm...it's now currently snowing!) and in the guest room, too.
Happy Monday, Happy Passover, Happy Easter.
