It’s blog hop time! I don’t know what it’s like where you’re at but here in Middle America we kind of skipped over winter this year. There were a few cold days this year, but overall the winter was not unlike a tepid bowl of soup: damp, lukewarm, and just kind of there. Despite the lack of winter, though, Easter wisps in with a refreshing blast of spring. Renewal, rebirth, regeneration…whatever you gravitate towards spring and Easter are symbols of it. The stark winter is over and the blast of summer is right around the corner, but in the meantime spring is lilting around and getting everyone all giddy. Stores are displaying flirty little dresses, cards feature frolicking lambs, and everyone talks about how they’re glad winter is over even if it was nonexistent.
I have a lot of great Easter memories from my kidlet days: Easter baskets brimming with goodies and mysterious paw prints trailing across the living room floor because the bunny had gotten into the flour when he took a wrong turn through the kitchen…the fabulous year where the Easter Bunny had heard the yearnings of my little girl heart and had brought me a kid-sized tool kit along with eggs and candy (I got to keep the eggs and candy but the tools mysteriously disappeared after I attempted to dismantle the living room furniture while waiting to go to church)…the millions of egg hunts that I nearly got run over by bigger kids and came away with one lousy egg – you’d think this would be a bad memory but I always racked up a lot of pity chocolate on those occasions.
