Busy Time of the Year

Three days until Easter Sunday and there's lots to do.

I'm sure it's probably the same at your house.

  The Easter dinner, to be served after morning church services,  still hasn't been planned in total detail, but I will most likely get a spiral ham. 

 It's hard to break with tradition.

  This year, I think I'll put a maple glaze on it.

I like to set the dining room table in advance so it's not left until the last minute, when there are dozens of other preparations to complete.

Still have Easter basket surprises to wrap and lots of cleaning to do. (That's my least favorite part of any holiday but it's necessary, right?)

Well this year I just have to make an apple pie and bring it to my son and daughter in laws house. I'm having Easter Sunday there with my three darling grandsons. They are having a glow in the dark Easter egg hunt on Saturday night. I think being with family is the best part of Easter. I'll miss singing the "Hallelujah Chorus" though with my own church choir...

We don't do anything much here. My oldest son is away at college and Zack is 15-1/2 so it's not like when they were little and we had lots of friends to share the holidays with. Easter was always a big gathering when I was growing up. Everyone at my Mammaw's house in Mississippi and Easter egg hunts in the backyard, churning homemade banana or peach ice cream with the cousins, everyone taking a turn. Good memories! Best wishes, Tammy

Oh yes, a generally busy time of year. Between Easter and yard clean up, there isn't much time for blogging.

For a lot of people, that is.

Not for all.

I don't "do Easter," so that's not hanging over my head, this week. :-) Weather got cold again, so outside work is on back-burner. So I'm relaxed.

I wish well, to all bloggers who do "do Easter." Hope it is enjoyable, and not toooooo much work. :-)

You know the older I get the more I realize is - that the cleaning part is not as important as the other things. I know your home will be filled with joy and loved this Easter. I just love the holiday and what it stands for.

My daughter-in-law's grandmother is hosting all of us for Easter dinner this year - she's 95! Says, "I may not be able to this next year." How adorable. It will be a potluck, I'm bringing macaroni salad and deviled eggs. There is nothing more glorious than the Easter morning worship service, then gathering with family.

Unfortunately, the girls were just here, so they won't be around for Easter, and it will just be a quiet one with my son and husband. I used to love to fill the baskets with goodies when they were kids, and can you believe I still made each of them one when they were still in their twenties?

Have a happy Easter, Susan. I hope the day is filled with so much love.

Hello from Spain: your Easter bunnies collection is awesome. I really like this holiday because my daughters do not have school. My favorite day is Palm Sunday. We go to church and the priest blesses the palms .. We keep in touch

I love that it is a time of renewal. Springtime, in the Northeast especially, is so life affirming and the message of Easter only adds to the joy!

Of course, having as many family members as possible together for a wonderful dinner is the icing on the cake.

I love all the hustle and bustle but the cleaning part. Love all you decor!!!

I'm off with my Dad tomorrow to shop for supper.

Happy Easter!
