I hope that you all had a great Easter Sunday and enjoyed whatever you were - or were not! - doing. It was a quiet day for us, hubby did some gardening and I did some crafting. It was very cold here over the weekend and very wet on Friday, today is much warmer and sunnier though - blue sky! I remember one Easter as a child where we had enough snow to make a snowman. At least it was warmer than that this year.
So, what has been happening. Nothing thrilling. There has been quite a lot of television watching, catching up on all of the shows that I have recorded. There is still most of the season of Indian Summers to watch, all of Broadchurch, something called Arthur and George and all of Poldark. Plus the new series of Vera started last night. I have finished Mr Selfridge (well worth watching) and The Missing (very confusing, I didn't really enjoy it, perhaps I should have paid better attention?) and a few other things as well. We also managed to clear through a lot of duplicate episodes of various "man" shows. Thankfully.
On the crafting front things haven't been going so well. My quilt and I still struggle on, the tying is nearly done and the next challenge will be how to edge it. Simple and easy will be the answer. In fact, rustic will be the answer! I also accidentally started another crochet blanket. I know, I know. How do you accidentally start making a blanket. Trust me, if you have a crochet addiction and it is too cold to garden then it is actually very easy.
My other crochet project is still going, but very slowly. The stitches are so tiny that it takes ages to do and I can only cross my eyes for a limited period to look at it.
There was chocolate of course - only one of these bunnies belongs to me. Lamb for Easter dinner and keylime pie - probably not made with actual real live key limes though - for dessert. On Saturday we had breakfast for dinner and that was my favourite meal of the weekend dare I say it.
A friend and I went to a garden centre for lunch last week and we both "accidentally" egged each other into buying a Dicentra (Bleeding Heart). Mine is waiting to go in the garden, I need to clear some weeds first... I expect that my friend has already planted hers. She is good like that.
I think that is all I have to report. Off to sort out the houseplants now. I thought I was going to have a flower on my so called "seasonal cactus" for Easter, but it is still just a bud.
The Kalanchoes need some looking at and the Cyclamen needs planting outside having had a no watering accident.
The cactus is "so called" seasonal because that is the label that it had when I bought it for Christmas last year. Why they could not call it a Christmas Cactus I don't know. Perhaps it is because it also tries to flower at Easter!
Anyway, I digress. I hope that you all have a good Easter!
