As I went around town the day before Easter, I was struck with how every yard had just been mowed or mowed the day before. Of course, all the churches were preparing for Easter Egg Hunts. The parks, too, were mowed and trimmed to perfection.
Nature was dressing itself in finery. Trees have at least some of their delicate green leaves. My hair stays adorned with the oak flowers. Oaks obviously like me to help me dress up. My dogwood is blooming and the azaleas are so pretty, not only here but all over town.
There are two days of the year I wish for pretty, dry weather--Christmas and Easter. I want children to be able to ride their bikes on Christmas Day. On Easter I hope for dry grass and warm weather so children can hunt eggs in pleasant conditions for them and their parents. Rain boots at an egg hunt are not cool.
The skies are a brilliant blue with clouds and a gentle breeze. Outside, the weather is pleasant. Inside the house or car, ac is necessary for me and my allergies. My newly mowed grass is pleasant on the way to feed Dominique. Even the now-detested wisteria is blooming and pretty. The one good thing is that there is less wisteria in places than last year.
This last week, I price-matched eggs for $0.50/dozen. I cannot post pictures at all, so this post will be devoid of colorful eggs and Jello Jiggler eggs.
In my opinion, the weather is the thing that makes or breaks Easter. Foliage is at its best when not so soggy. Of course, sunshine makes everything better for me! I am not discounting the pleasure of family, friends, or good food. But, Sunshine On My Shoulders Makes Me Happy! Yes, on my shoulders, too. Sunshine almost always make me high!
Do you make Jello Jigglers? Is the sun shining and the grass dry for egg hunts where you are? Is sunshine a major like in your life? Are flowers and trees blooming where you live? Does sunshine make you high?
