all things new

OH MY GOODNESS! Have you heard?!

You're kidding me. No way.

Okay, fine. I'll tell you.

We have some new scarves...and the pattern is for sale here

...and there is this amazing 
one. The colors are incredible.

Are you doing anything special for Easter weekend? 

I spent part of the afternoon feeling proud of myself because I actually remembered to hard boil two dozen eggs (last year I just completely...forgot. Not kidding). This year, though, I'm feeling pretty good - not only are we ready with the eggs, but I have wonderful intentions of dyeing them with natural dyes this year (here and here). We're going to use what we have on hand and try turmeric, paprika, blueberries... 

I've read that red cabbage makes a glorious blue color, but a certain person who shall remain nameless (but he's married to me) forgot to stop at the grocery store on the way home tonight, so maybe we'll try that another time. ;) (Update: you can see photos of how they turned out here)

Depending on how the day goes, we'll make these cookies. We'll do a mountain of laundry, and the Professor and I will hopefully get in another chapter or two of Oliver Twist before dinnertime. And, if these guys (well, this one's a gal) stay away...

 we'll send the kids outside to play. We'll see...

Want to see some new colors of headbands and kerchiefs before we go?


or, ahem... "cafe au lait"

We've had a wonderful Good Friday here, remembering why we celebrate Easter in two days.

Sunday is coming...and He makes all things new. He is risen, indeed!
