On Second Thought, I Will

Easter has been in my mind for a while. I volunteer at church each week, so I am around the preparations. I wrote for the Lenten Devotional months ago. Still, I was surprised to learn that Easter is already here.

Sunday Cliff and I talked about what to do for Easter. He really doesn't want to do anything other than church. I am working six days a week now with Saturday School and he wants me to have a day of rest. I love him for that. He never begrudges me a day on the couch with my woobie. In fact, he wants that for me.

Still, while I was at Joanne's preparing for a puppet lesson, I bought the cutest Easter pick. It looks just like a foil wrapped chocolate bunny.

At Target I debated buying a few chocolate lambs to put on our Easter plates. After all we have to eat too, right? I didn't though. It just seemed like a bit much for just the two of us. I looked for a new spring table cloth. There was nothing. By the way, what happened to the Shabby Chic table linens?

Today after school, I decided. I need Easter dinner. If I am going to decorate and make a feast (small albeit) I want to share it. I want to entertain.

I will shop on Friday after school. I will cook and set the table on Saturday after school. So really, all I have to do on Sunday is heat up the food and serve. Easy! I am even going to use the same menu as last year- quiche and fruit salad. It's tried and true.

Aren't those eggs above great? They are from Real Simple. Of course, I should probably skip dying eggs. It's a hassle I don't need.

Hey, as I type this I'm getting the idea to dye eggs at Saturday School. It's not "test prep"and I'd probably get in trouble.

The fact that I am thinking about entertaining after working a six day work week shows that clearly, I like trouble.

Gah, Six days a week with the children???? Too much man.

I think you should celebrate with a nice little feast with you and your hubby. Breakfast is a great solution. It's actually how I prefer to do Easter as well. We usually have a big brunch most years.

You sound like me, I am notorious for planning things last minute that I swore I wasn't going to do! I once planned a surprise birthday party for my husband in 24 hours.
