After Thoughts

Good day.. With rainy and grey skies I am working through effects of having a house really full of family... I baked 3 hams and have just chunks left... I stored one bag and have the other for munching... Vegetable soup has been made from the left over veggies and is on the stove simmering for lunch today... After posting I will be sweeping and mopping and gathering Easter decorations for placing in storage for another year.. I had a very hungry crew yesterday.. Candies were enjoyed by all and eggs were found by little ones... The Easter story was told with the numbered eggs.. The clothespin drop into a bottle was enjoyed by all young and old with the reward of a nickle if you got 3 to 5 in the bottle on your turn... They called it their college fund.... I must admit my energy level is zero today and I am forcing myself to work... It seems a half hour work and a half hour break... This is break... while the laundry is spinning...
My plans for the next couple weeks is to try to get myself more organized... Desires to do anything outside will be put off for this week once again... Our whole weeks forecast is for rain.... on our already very heavy saturated land... Taking some smile from my face as I feel the need for a attitude adjustment will be needed once again...
A desire to get out and about will be strong by mid week I am sure... This evening however we must travel to Napoleon for the viewing of a neighbor and friend that passed this weekend... I seem to have a love for searching for paper ephemera and junk jewelry for my time spent on altered art... I always love boudoir essentials and silver objects but must remind myself I have cut back on spending and desires... Knowing I do not need it... it is just a passion...
I can't think of a more appropriate time to say I hope you all enjoyed a lovely Easter... Hopefully with your family and all the rituals of the day and connections we see, to make with the past on special holidays....

Hello Marietta...I felt like you did yesterday because we had our celebration on Sat this year. I was a little bit on the slow side the day after though I did manage to get out for a walk in between rain drops. Ham leftovers here too...trying not to look at the left over candy. Have a great week...stay dry!~Hugs, Patti

DH & I had a very quiet Easter. The first time in 42 years without our children. It was nice to have the peace......
Sounds like you need some serious down-time!! Relax.... it will all be there when you are rested!!
Have a Great Day!!

3 hams...wow you must have had a lot of people over! We had ham also along with all kinds of other goodies.
I am tired today too, but doing laundry and trying to play catch up. Take it easy and don't overdo Marietta!
Blessings~

You deserve a rest, sounds like you were one busy lady. Arney worked on Easter Sunday which was not fun at all. So I was by myself most of the day. So I made eggs for Arney and a nice dinner. It was nice. Hugs, mary
