Today is a regular ordinary day at my house. No Easter activites for us. We were supposed to have a family picnic at the park for our Easter. But, the park where we were going to have our picnic is currently under water. We have had nearly nine inches of rain in as many days. Hail nearly every day, enough thunder that the cat has been under the bed for days and more lightening strikes than I can count. It is raining so hard right now that I can barely hear the news on TV. It is supposed to rain for four more days, but I really don't see where on earth it is going to go!
I did mange to make Duckie Cupcakes. They are delish! And cute too, if I do say so myself.
I couldn't bring myself to eat those orange slice beaks though. I loathe orange slices. Orange slices, circus peanuts and those hard shelled marshmallow Hide N Seek eggs are all disgusting. Blech.
We colored some eggs and I may have hidden them for The Bean. It's tradition at this point. I know he is technically "too old" but who am I to be the Easter Egg Nazi? "No eggs for YOU!" He got a basket full of goodies including a gift card, so he did alright. I remember the good old days when the Breadman brought me home a bunny or some chocolate. I think he forgot he used to do that too.
We had a slight break in the raini today for about an hour so we decided to weather the elements and go to Sam's for a few items. It was our first trip out in days. We drove all the way across town through the puddles and drizzle. Do you know what? Sam's is CLOSED on Easter Sunday! Whodathunkit! I am glad they were closed since it is a holiday. I just wish I would have known before we floated over there!
I suppose I will throw us together some sort of Easter Dinner. Well, dinner at the least. I hope everyone had a good Easter and enjoyed it more than I did!
***We will have that picnic and Easter baskets and such - it just might be ahwile!
