Easter Weekend



Scott is taking a few days off ... he came home from the store yesterday afternoon with these roses for me. I needed this. Everyone should have a Scott Equivalent - I highly recommend one.

The roses have a really cool marbling to them:

He also brought a few bunches of daffodils, which started opening pretty soon once they were inside. We're kinda like crack whores when it comes to anything blooming in the spring - we'd shove dandelions in a vase if we had to:




I started cooking the three dozen eggs that Scott brought:




Meanwhile, Scott went out in the yard to play, and to cut the grass with the push mower. He told me he's scared of the electric mower.




Scott bought a plethora of egg-coloring kits ... it was a little overwhelming:




Decorating eggs is harder work than we thought:


The finished products drying:


Have a great Easter, y'all.

I'm glad I have my Scott Equivalent in my dear, sweet cousin! ((((hugs)))) I'm still smiling every time I look at my beautiful roses. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

What a lovely slice-of-life Easter post. I had the pleasure of coloring eggs with my two and a half year-old niece this year. Happy Easter!

I agree...everyone needs a Scott. Especially when they tote in flowers and like to play with colors.

Thanks for stopping by. I'll take you up on the Eeyore sometime.

What an interesting assortment of colored eggs: nice tie-dye effect. We're still "somewhat" under snow with another storm coming through tomorrow. We may not see my daffodils. :-) Looks like you guys had a great weekend! Steven

I have a coupon for a "Scott equivalent." But is it as good as a Scott? Hmmm.

Those eggs are intense, so jewel-like! My bf once hid my easter basket at the end of a piece of yarn that criss-crossed the whole apartment like a giant spider web. The start end was tied around a coffee cup on a surprise breakfast tray. Yeah, I know.
