I decided that I really wanted to dye eggs this year. It was a blast, even if I was alone. I did a dozen normally...planned to go back and decorate them, and did a dozen cracking them, and soaking them in dye over night. Both groups turned out beautifully!!!!

Happiness....my quest... Today, I decided I really wanted to go to the Farmers Market, Homegrown Market, on Hermanville. A really awesome place! I slept till about 8...emailed back and forth with my favorite Organic Dairy farmer, and then headed to the market with Trinity. Beautiful herbs, veggies....lots of friends!!! I could go broke there, and the season hasn't really even started. I got spinach and catnip from the Sasscers, onions and bread from the Trossbachs, and the Dill, Napini, parsley and chervil from Even Star Farm. Yummmmy!!! After that, I headed up to Loveville, to Mahlon Stauffers to get flowers. Two big pots of purple Wave Petunias, a pot of pansies, a pot of Gerber Daisies, and a porch pot of lettuces. A quick stop to Zimmerman for asparagus, and now I am home. Eggs are on. Country style spare ribs are marinating in Cowboy Spice Rub and Woodpecker cider. When I am ready to cook them, i'll put them on the grill with Wild Turkey bbq sauce. YUMMY!!!!! And way too much fun watching the babies explore the catnip!
Ok...home now. Friday night. BRRRRR!!!!!!! Chilly!!! I got home, got my stuff out, and curled up to watch tv and chill. Watched Dollhouse episode 2. Pretty cool!!! Critters were all curled up around me. Ahhhhh this is definitely a good thing!
Ok...its Good Friday. A day of prayer and reflection....and work. The store was busy, and I was there alone. Ed and Sue were away. I remained as calm as possible... Once work was over, as soon as I could, I headed out. After talking to Mom and Christine, I decided to dye some eggs.... I really wanted to dye some eggs. Everyone has been posting ideas for Easter eggs. So...I decided to stop at Target to get stuff for eggs. I discovered that egg dye is not expensive at all, just $1.50 per box. Ok....it would have been cheaper, had I not found other things I wanted to buy. Oh well....it will be fun.
Ok...after some absolutely crazy weeks, I am making a concerted effort to relax this weekend, stop and smell the flowers, and do some things I want to do. I'll update my progress as it goes....thinking that I will expand it into next week.
