Easter Sunday is tomorrow
and so different from years ago.
At that time
the family dressed wonderful, son with new sport coat
and little girls in socks with ruffles,
new shoes, dresses and many times little hats upon their heads.
We would color eggs,
family attended church and special Easter baskets
were found by children when they woke up early morning.
Sometimes there would be an Easter egg hunt and many times
my parents were at our home for lunch.
As time went by and children grew older
we moved from our farm to the big city and lived
in what many would describe as a very grand home.
Many times Easter Sunday lunch was enjoyed at the local
country club. Oh I can remember some of the
wonderful dishes. Miss the fresh seafood, someone carving
prime rib and oh the many special deserts.
Tomorrow some of family will visit for a noon meal.
Baking a ham and have not done that in years.
In the past a ham and a turkey breast would be cooked.
Tomorrow will add Asparagus, scalloped potatoes, stuffed eggs, coleslaw
and strawberry short cake for desert.
It will be a wonderful to see some of my children and grandchildren.
Quick trip to town this morning
As far as you can see the country roads are filled with emerald green wheat fields.
The beautiful object I keep seeing on a tree as I pull in the drive
was still there and I captured its image.
Lowe's had marked their Easter plants down 25% and the scent of this
beautiful Hyacinth fills the room.
May all who visit
be Happy, Well, Safe and at Peace....
