This morning over Easter breakfast, which in part consisted of jelly beans and chocolate eggs, Chris read me interesting facts about Easter.
Stuff like "ham or lamb?" for Easter dinner. Either works by the way.
Things about dying Easter eggs and the significance of the egg and Easter through the years. It's a good way to get kids interested. Plus it has something to do with re-birth.
And how the Stations of the Cross were used to tell the story of Easter to people who couldn't read. I think that's right, my attention was starting to drift at this point.
Did you now that red eggs symbolize the blood of Christ? I think blue could be for water, green might be for grass, and purple for the color of velvet robes.
What I do know for sure is they made a very tasty snack about an hour ago. Deviled. With a few dots of Sriracha on top. Couple of pretzels on the side. Mmmmm.
The spring napkins came out today, and despite the fact that we have 12, I did in fact make more.
Because nary a one of the spring collection had a bunny on it. A bunny with a carrot.
And you can see right there on the fabric it says "darling for all boy or girl big or small".
What could I do? There was already orange thread on my machine. It seemed like fate.
Hopefully your Easter has been equally eventful, and educational.
P.S. I know the majority of you read Mary Ann's blog, but the 2 of you who don't - go read it today. There is a great picture of Ray and Angie, plus she writes about the concept of tsukumogami. Something I have never heard of but it has me thinking. In a very good way.
