Hello, Dear Friends, I hope that you are
celebrating all of the good things in life,
and finding sweet and simple ways to lift your spirits
as we begin this season of resurrection and renewal.
As you can see, I've been having some fun in the kitchen
to cheer things up for Easter.
I used a tiny butter knife to apply the frosting
that held it all together. It was messy and took a little patience,
but I think they turned out cute.
Such a fun Easter decoration!
We also just celebrated Ramblin' Man's birthday.
It was just the two of us, but I wanted to make it special.
My family so wanted to celebrate with us.
It will be so nice when we are all fully vaccinated.
We just got our first dose of the Moderna vaccine.
Another thing to celebrate!
I baked his favorite treat - Boston Cream Pie cupcakes.
We celebrated by reminiscing about happy times.
I think that the older you get, the more you realize
that it's the sweet, everyday moments that mean the most.
Kai loves a celebration, too!
According to him, every day is a celebration!
We can learn so much from dogs...
Live in the moment.
Never judge another by the color of their fur
or how fancy their collars are.
Bury yesterday's bones.
Loyalty is the rule.
Playfulness is an important quality in a friend.
Always greet one another with enthusiasm,
no matter how short the time you've spent apart.
Raise your hackles only to defend one another.
Take lots of naps.
Always show your gratitude.
I've kept my sourdough starter going,
which is a cause for celebration :) and this
time I baked artisan whole wheat bread.
I just ordered two new sourdough cookbooks so
I can expand my repertoire.
I put my faux hyacinths under glass.
Some spring flower celebrations.
I was taking photos of the mossy maple in my back yard
when I noticed this little guy.
We have Ravens living nearby this year.
Last light on snowy hills.
Celebrating another precious day.
Wishing you Sweet Spring Celebrations, Dear Friends,
and many blessings, too.
