Easter


Happy Easter Monday, cafe friends!

We had a lovely day for Easter...the sun was shining, the flowers and trees were blooming, the birds were singing "Alleluia!"


And I was cooking...and baking, and then cooking some more. I must have thought I was feeding TWELVE people and not just four. I really could have used a few more sous chefs to help me in the kitchen, or maybe a few more women to help with all the prep work. Instead, it was little ole me, trying to keep up with every dirty dish and every simmering pot and pan. Luke said I got a little "Gordon Ramsay" at one point. Ha ha! Too true. My family forgave me for my outburst, and then I fed them all. But in the end, it was all good. Too good.








Whew! We are exhausted!

It's a new day, and a chance to start the diet all over again. Seriously, where did all these extra fluff pounds come from? Oh, I remember...stress eating from trying to buy and sell a house. Sigh!

Time to calm down and say "This is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it!"

Blessings, cafe friends!

    1. That was one of Jemma's Easter presents. She does look pretty adorable wearing it, and doesn't seem to mind it thus far!

  2. Looks so good! You sound like me! I cooked and prepped all day Saturday. Sunday to church and back home to orchestrate everything for 7! I was exhausted! I wanted to just lounge around in my pj's yesterday and feast on leftovers! Hubby then wanted to go and meet his classmate (who get together once a month to chat and eat their designated eatery) I hesitated, but went along with it and had fun, but I slept in this morning - lol!
