Two for Tuesday

Care to play along?  On Tuesdays, pick a topic and segue into it!

Care to play along? On Tuesdays, pick a topic and segue into it!

It’s Tuesday – 2 days in to a 4 day week – whoop!

1. Today’s the last day of March and I’m glad.  Why?  We’ve had 4 seasons in 2 days.  Mild Saturday. Snow Sunday. 50 and breezy yesterday. Today? Who knows?  Maybe April won’t be quite so finicky!

4 seasons of weather

2.  Stopped last night to get a few “treats” for the wee ones this weekend.  We have an Easter gathering planned  – an early brunch on Saturday. You see, when oldest boy & his wife divorced, Easter Sunday became yet another battleground with the other side.  I – for one – was not going to be territorial about it and there was no backing down from them, the uber-Christians.  I know, ironic, isn’t it?   I get it – to a point – the kids should have that time with their cousins, we’re all about that.  But there’s never been any g-i-v-e this way.  So,  about three years ago I announced we’d have our celebration on Easter Saturday.  Period.  I’m fine with it – it’s relaxed and fun and beats a “drive-by” visit any day of the week.  Grandpa will join us and we’ll have four generations in my kitchen enjoying some of  my “company French toast”, eggs to-order, bacon, ham, sausage, home-made hash browns, fruit, coffee, juice, etc.   Oh, and a “magic” pumpkin spice cake for Gramps, his favorite. Yes, there’ll be way too much. Yes, he’ll take 2/3 of the cake home (shh, that’s the point) and yes, the littles will probably overdose on candy.  They won’t be far behind us :).

Are you planning an Easter gathering?  In what ways have your traditions had to adapt over time?
