For the most part, this has been a crappy week. We have had a ton of rain here, and the rivers are overflowing everywhere. I will never, ever forget the flood of '93, and knowing that right now many families are sandbagging to save their homes breaks my heart. Flooding is both devastating and dangerous , and it is all too easy to forget that.
And we have had our own crappy stuff too. My mom is in the hospital, our van has transmission issues, there was a notice in the mail box saying our bank account may have been compromised, and that is only the tip of the crappy iceberg.
So in some ways I could not be happier to just get Easter done with already. I am totally unprepared still, but whatever. Bring it on.
I actually had access to a car this morning, so I popped in the thrift after picking our latest round of family photos from JC Penny. These little mice wanted to come home with me. They have longish skewers on the back and I think they were probably meant for serving cheese. I think they will be appearing in a new blog banner soon.
I used the pink feather tree for Easter this year instead of the usual white one. It was pure laziness on my part, I still had it in here from Christmas. I like it though. All the different wooden ornaments and my little plastic lambs made it pretty sweet.
Jack actually picked up that big bunny in the car at the thrift himself. There are 2 others on the tree that were in the same bag.
I can never really get a good photo of this tree. There is always too much visual noise where it is sitting when it comes to photographs. It is sweet this year too. Usually I stick to one type of ornament on it, all glass or all paper, or whatever suits my fancy that year. This year I have cotton lambs and real eggs and glass ornaments and resin ornaments and even a few mushrooms.
I guess I am into a patchworky thing all around this year. :-)
Welp, I better get back to hopping down that bunny trail.
Happy Easter to you and yours, if you are the celebrating type.
