Happy Easter

Its early Easter Morning. Let me start with  yesterday afternoon. My daughter came home to stay the weekend. We like to do all the Eastery things. When she came in she had a handful of tulips for me. I love tulips so it was quiet a surprise. We dyed eggs, went shopping and made grape salad.


We got up early this morning so we could straggle out the door looking like boogers so we would not miss Easter Sunrise service. I always enjoy attending this meaningful event where we all gather at the crosses on the front lawn of the church and celebrate the risen Christ. 
However, It was gloomy with a mist of rain in the air. It was still all the same. I knew the sun was coming up under those clouds as the birds were singing.

Afterwards we enjoyed a nice home cooked southern breakfast. My Mom did all the cooking as we had a small crowd of about 40. 

We just came back home. Im having and another cup of coffee and visiting some of my favorite blogs. Now we will rest a while and dig into our Easter baskets before slipping into our new Easter outfits and head back to church for Worship.

After church we will enjoy a nice Easter dinner with family. Then sleep.

Tomorrow its back to the work grind...and healthy eating .

Happy Easter !

  5. What a wonderful day. I have had the chance to see several Tulips pop out of the ground this year. DIL Corinne has planted MANY of them around the yard. The Tulip is my favorite flower, these you have are beautiful. THANKS, I love a chance to smile.

    I hope the day with your sweet daughter was as good as it sounded like it would be.
    Good on the two of you for knowing how to enjoy YOUR lives.
