What a wonderful weekend...Tim came home, Brian was actually off work (a rarity -
his job is not a Monday-Friday one), and the temperature was in the 70's!
My first flowers of spring made their debut.
Tim took Zippo outside to munch on some grass. Zippo loves to go outside,
but we don't purposely let him out to roam the neighborhood. So this was
a compromise. Zippo got his fresh air and sunshine, but he didn't get to wander.
Easter dinner was just the three of us, and my mom and cousin.
I don't have a separate dining room, so the five of us squeezed around the
little kitchen table, which worked out fine. I set up all the food ~ ham, salad,
marinated asparagus, corn casserole, potato salad, fruit salad, homemade
cookies, and two pies buffet style on my countertops. I also put out a pitcher
of lemon water, a pitcher of iced green tea, and a couple of bottles of wine ~
along with the appropriate glasses, so people could just serve themselves.
This photo cracks me up...I noticed Tim was the only one with food on his plate.
He was so hungry, he dove in before I officially called that "dinner was served"!
After dinner, we all sat out on the patio in the sunshine, relaxing and talking
and just enjoying each other's company.
Oops, how could I forget our furry guest, Miss LuLu? This is my mom's
adorable, sweet little dog. She and my cats get along just fine. They probably
think she's one of them since she's so tiny.
For those of you who celebrate Easter, I hope you enjoyed the holiday
with loved ones. Happy Monday, everyone!
